Many of the aspects of this dining experience were fantastic. Good balance of dishes for the tasting menu, superbly prepared in a cracking venue. However, when you are paying for this type of experience you really want everything to be near perfect and there were...More

I do my best to be objective in my reviews and know that this one will run counter to the perceived (and actual) wisdom surrounding this restaurant. It did not provide value for money, it is ridiculously expensive and the quality of food is good...More

The food here is excellent fine dining. We had the lunchtime taster menu and every course was superb. I even enjoyed things that I normally do not like! The service was very professional, the staff being very polite and attentive, making us feel very welcome....More
