Just like being in Vienna. Super smart grand cafe. Set up to please. Beetroot and goat curd starter looked and tasted great. Ditto citrus salmon tartar. Main of glistening perfectly cooked cod and Stroganoff much enjoyed.

We used the private dining room. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. The cod was cooked to perfection- an art form for 20! Great ambience in this old style restaurant.

I had been here before and was amazed by tastiness and professionalism. However, my last visit was not the best experience. The salads were very tasty but then we waited forever for 3 ribeye steaks to arrive. They were chewy, had fat and we all...More

Went for coffee and dessert to this old fashioned cafe, reminiscent of Vienna. Desserts were excellent. Service a bit slow. Nice break from hectic pace.

Sorry, can't help as we don't drink much wine, but recently a three course dinner for four of us with three beers cost around £230 excluding service. It was worth every penny.
