    Lovely dinner, would love to come back. The salad (starter) and the Octopus were super tasty. We preferred this to the lamb (main) and sea bass carpaccio (still nice). The Israeli wine was amazing too.

    There were three of us and we shared a selection of mainly small plates, each complementing the others. A delicious fusion of Middle Eastern flavours. We sat outside in the sunshine. The staff took careful note of someone’s dairy allergy and advised accordingly. A memorable lunch.

    Lack of vegetarian "big" dishes was disappointing. I ended up getting 3 small / medium dishes all served while the rest of the party got their starters. When we reached the main (big dish) cause I had already finished my meal. In this age were many switch to a vegetarian (or even vegan) diet restaurants do need to cater for this in both starter and main categories.

    Lovely food, occasional mixup in order although rapidly put right. Drinks very slow to arrive, nearly finished starter by time cocktails arrived. It is nice here but staff are asking far too often for customers to tell them how great the food is which gets wearing and seems a bit needy.

    The scallops were blunt and I would suggest that you review the recipe. Bread wasn't nice and the sauce in the octopus didn't go with the rest of the dish.

    The ambiance was not good - songs which they were playing was very old school and loud. Last winter it was totally a different experience - I would say a stylish experience it was but not this time! The food portions (other than desserts) were small - it was more like a tasting menu kind portion. Whereas the service was really good-Always on time, smiling and kind!
