    We sat at the bar and had a great meal. The bartender is exceptional so it was an added treat to watch him work. We were able to order from the full menu. The croquettes and the pork were particularly exceptional.

    Ordered a 2007 wine and the wine waiter tried to serve me a 2020 of the same wine without any explanation. They didn't get away with it but the fact they tried was very poor.

    Booked a nice table of two for my birthday and it was beyond expectations!!! We were given the best table in the restaurant (a booth at the back overseeing the whole dining room), service was very friendly and professional, menu has a large choice of dishes and all tasted great! We will definitely be coming back, thanks to the team for such a wonderful experience!!!

    I came for lunch and opted for an array of small plates. On the plus side the croquettes were nice, and also the artichoke hearts. But the padron peppers were too salty to eat and the calamari was so dry as to be similarly off-putting. The wagyu bao were ok but not worth a tenner each. The peppers were removed from my bill but even after that the £80 I was charged for this food was a massive waste of money.
