This was a gift which we put away for this special occasion. It was stunning. We selected the matched wines option and it was worthwhile. I had never really chosen this before but I am now a fan . If you had said that I...More

Probably not quite as good as a few years ago. Reasonable wine selection but for this quality of restaurant you would expect a wider choice

We go to Subo less than once a year, so not an expert. But, on this occasion we had excellent (truly first rate) food, very high level of service and an altogether lovely dining experience with friends. The menu was brilliant. I thought the price,...More

An unusual restaurant which presents a different smaller menu each night. Dishes invented by the chef & always delicious. Book first.

We dined at Subo in August. It was a gift from our two daughters. The food was good, as was the service. As I am vegetarian, there was an option available. Overall, a lovely dining experience.

For the price, and from what I'd heard I expected a little more. Food was ok but fairly bland. One of the five courses was crushed ice with the waterery flavour of honeydew, rockmelon and lychee mixed through. It would have been ok to refresh...More

We visited for a family dinner on Friday night. The set menu was well balanced, with a range of dishes that were beautifully prepared and presented. We had forgotten to advise an allergy and yet, with no notice, the kitchen managed to procure a delicious...More
