“Great Service, beautiful food”
Reviewed May 4, 2012 via mobile

We hadn't intended to go here but as it looked good, we went in when another restaurant was full.

It wasn't cheap but it was worth the cost.

You could order whatever you saw on the menu, knowing full well it would be delicious, different and well-presented. The wine list wasn't wide but was good value.

It was typical modern cuisine with some unusual ingredient combinations but these were not just for their own sake but were well thought out and delicious. The service was friendly, attentive, informative and enjoyable.

Altogether, an excellent, quality night-out

“Lovely outside area and very good food”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

Food was great, service a bit hit and miss. We went for an early lunch on a Saturday and there was only a couple of other tables there so not sure what it would be like when it's busier. Outside area is really nice on a good day.
Overall though, a good experience!

“great place”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Three of us shared some tapas....the sliders were great, then some ham and cheese croquet perfectly cooked and creamy, then some spicy choritzo which was a bit oily but all very tasty. For main we had a fantastic duck dish with rubharb and wid rice perfectly cookedand full of flavour. Then to top of a great meal a rubharb and apple crumble which again was perfect. It is a small placebut full of atmosphere with efficient staff and a great selection of food and wine. Nice spot for dinner or drinks in Richmond.
