We had a gift for their five course taster menu. Wasn't quite sure what to expect but surpassed expectations. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. Every dish that was served was explained, even suggesting how or when to eat them!Although the dishes looked minimalist the presentation was superb and the food tasted great and by the time we finished we were both feeling full. We were not hurried at all and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Overall a great experience and would recommend.
This is in my top 3 list of favourite restaurants; and with so many good options in London; this is a bit achievement; this is one of those restaurants you will remember. The service was just brilliant and our waitress was lovely; I which I had asked for her name but she is from Ecuador and was friendly, professional and lovely - a pleasure to talk to her. The food was excellent; we had 5 different dishes and each of them was excellent; I can't decide which one I preferred the most but they're all delicious. It is also very central so easy to get to; the only thing I wasn't very keen on was the decoration as it feel a bit clinical; however, this is just matter of time as my partner completely loved it.
A good Michelin-starred restaurant, but you can find better in London. Canapés were interesting but not all very flavoursome. Mains were good. The dessert was particularly good and interesting (mustard seeds and chocolate). Flavours and textures are imaginative. Very good value with online offers.
Had a lovely afternoon meal. The super crispy onion skin which was full of flavour was particularly memorable, as were the translucent paper-thin sweet potato. The dishes were elegant and well cooked but not outstanding in flavour. Staff were very friendly and well mannered though not super attentive. Overall, a very pleasant experience.
The good: very nice presentation and creative garnish of the dishes with a little show effect Good service The average: taste was rather bland. There wasn't any flavour outstanding. The dessert was probably best part of the meal. Well this is my personal opinion and I would recommend anyone to try it for themselves.
