In our view, this restaurant topped Monte for quality of food.
The dishes were well-presented, well-conceived and perfectly cooked, with portions just the right size and the main ingredients not obscured by over-fancy presentation (as tended to be the case at Monte). To help you choose, there is a water-colour sketch of each dish, with ingredients labelled, on the menu!
The wine list is impressive. I did love the comment about its similarity to the Domesday Book: it is so voluminous it has to be conveyed around the restaurant on its own (specially-reinforced I suspect) trolley!!
Waiter efficient and slightly teasing (in a nice way).
Unfortunately, the evening was a bit chilly, so we couldn't sit outside, which probably has a bit more atmosphere than the inside tables.
