    The food was nice, but the plating looks where nothing like the pictures on the site, the service was way to eager. Every 5 minutes there was someone to ask us anything, within 2 hours we were out and about. We where looking for a Romantic evening, but felt rushed

    This was our second time here. We went there before New year the food was excellent so we decided to go there to celebrate our anniversary. The service was exceptional, especially Sofia and Federico. Starters and Desserts were delicious but the main was a bit salty for Gammon Ham. However everything is excellent and we will be back again.

    We had a really enjoyable lunch. We chose from the a la carte menu as we didn’t find enough on the set lunch menu to excite us. We all enjoyed our meals; the steaks were really tasty and tender, the fish and it sauces terrific and the parmentier potatoes delicious. So much so that we asked for and were given the recipe. It was a very quiet restaurant, but the service was courteous, knowledgeable and most friendly. A wonderful experience.

    While it was a nice meal with good service we were underwhelmed compared to the price and reputation. The ribeye had to be sent back as it was not cooked properly (on top of that it was very uninspiring to have a piece of meat blandly sitting on an unmemorable plate with a small jug of really not very nice sauce). The cottage pie was delicious. Otherwise, if we were staying at the hotel we would have been really happy with the in house restaurant - but I wouldn’t recommend travelling to it

    Food was outstanding, had mostly seafood dishes (turbot, scallops, sole and seabass), everything was cooked to perfection. Atmosphere was very subdued, service lacked the typical razzmatazz you get in other Michelin starred restaurants. Overall very good value for the quality of food.

    Expected it to be busier , staff were attentive but unable to deliver - wine flight with gourmand menu was unavailable and cocktails in the bar were apparently a new menu - menu a bit samey… good quality but uninteresting..

    Only a couple of things I would criticise, firstly we got off to a bit of a bad start waiting for drinks and then one of the said drinks appeared to be forgotten. When this was brought up the waitress became a little defensive, which I didn't think was appropriate. The only other thing was the Christmas Menu could only be had if everyone at the table wanted it. I find this a bit strange, surely if there are two couples dining and one couple wanted to have it, then they should be able to do so ? If it was a party of two they could order it, so why couldn't one couple in a party of four? Apart from that the food was excellent, as well as the surroundings and atmosphere. I would recommend it.

    Other than the Yule Log dessert all our food was delicious. The new (temporary??) sommelier did not know that St Julien is part of Bordeaux & tried to substitute a white Burgundy. The wine department really needs attention. The Maître D saved the evening but it would have been appreciated if someone had asked why neither lady guest had more than one mouthful of “the log” Loin of venison exceptional.

    Food was excellent as always. It was a long time since we last went and the refurb was a calming space and a lot lighter. Service was good but felt I was left waiting for dessert a little too long. Saying that, we enjoyed our evening immensely.

    In most places the meal we had would be described as pleasant and satisfying, but those with a memory of how things were can only look on it with disappointment. The dishes now are made for comfort rather than excitement. A crab bisque kept to crab and cream brings satisfaction but no gastronomic adventure. The cod and muscles was simple (though I prefer avoidance of the vacuum bath) but without innovation.

    We had lunch midweek and the restaurant was very quiet therefore there was little atmosphere. I had the set lunch and my wife selected from the a la carte menu. The food was good, but not spectacular and the service was efficient, except that a side dish was forgotten, although to be fair to the waiter, this was removed from the bill without being asked.

    The question was how did this restaurant manage to get a Michelin star? Frankly, the only thing which was good and tasty was my gnocchi in their limited menu! I then had smallest piece of unimaginative sea bass with only a few small peeled tomatoes! My partner had a dry pork parcel and a tough and dry ribeye steak for main. And our deserts nothing to write home about! The bill came more than £200 without alcohol! Very surprised with the whole experience. Will not go back again.

    Lovely lunch. Our first visit and really enjoyed it. We had the A La Carte menu and asked for pairing wines. The wines matched the food perfectly. There is an exceptionally well priced set lunch with optional drinks package which seemed superb value for money so definately worth a try too. The restaurant was very quiet which was a shame as it affected the atmosphere; definately deserved to be busier. Staff were lovely.

    The restaurant is rather small but it didn’t lack atmosphere. The service wasn’t the best unfortunately. When we turned up we were only offered the food menu and had to ask for the drinks and wine line list. This led to us being presented with cocktails with our first course of food - which for us, wasn’t a good combination. The Gourmand menu was nice, simple food but we felt as though it could have been improved with a few more dishes. Each course didn’t disappoint. The courses come out very quickly so we had to ask to slow them down half way through to avoid finishing the 6 courses in an hour or so. That said, the food was superb and didn’t disappoint.

    Having eaten here previously, it was disappointing this time to have no amuse bouche or petit fours, very unusual for this class of restaurant. In addition, the French fries were very reminiscent of standard supermarket fare and clearly not homemade, again, underwhelming.

    A small but nicely appointed space adjacent to the bar and lounge, the restaurant is intimate and romantic. We had the 9 course chef's course with the wine tasting course as well. The food was beautifully presented and quite tasty. Each wine pairing was explained by the sommelier and every one was spot on as a course accompaniment. Service, while excellent, seemed a bit rushed. We could have used more time between courses, mostly to process the wine and discuss the meal. In total, on a Tuesday evening, there were a total of 8 people, including us. Seems a shame for such a nice experience.
