“The place for many many return visits”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

It's described as a New York/London oyster bar. It's far better than that. Fabulous, fabulous fit out. The waiters were very good, excellent in fact. I loved the newsletter on the table, and the draughts sitting on the side of the table were a fun addition. The oyster menu is so extensive it was difficult to select. However, we managed, of course. The menu was varied and interesting. Outstanding and interesting wine list, well priced. This one has the lot ... great ambience and decor, fabulous staff, great menu, great wine list. Definitely a new favourite.

“Great service in the heart of the city”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

The waiters were excellent . Very attentitive and informed. The menu was varied and my guest said it was the best steak he had had in a long time. I had the king fish which was delicious but I would have liked less bones. Very nice ambience.

“In a word: Excellent”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Went here for a business lunch and an evening meal. In both cases it was very busy, but the staff were friendly and made you welcome.

Food on both occassions was excellent (gnocchi for lunch, oysters and steak for supper). Complemeted by good value wines with a choice of beers and cocktails from the bar also available. The menu is varied with a good set of options. Nice ambience too. All in all what's not to like. Will be going back.
