Main course (Spaghetti with mussels)was just that with little else, really disappointing. Perhaps it was because I asked for gluten free pasta but there was little to it. Creme Brûlée was wonderful. Others at the table were very happy with their food. Good service and a really nice setting. Overall, enjoyable lunch and would go again.

Place is lovely but in the end of the day its all about the food. Nothing was seasoned so food had no taste really, which was unfortunate. The main person (birthday person), didn’t like the food so I felt I should have booked elsewhere as he didn’t enjoy it as it was for his bday.

A stunning location and wonderful ambience. The rooftop terrace is beautiful and the service was impeccable. The menu was somewhat limited (although we were only there for lunch), however the chef was very accommodating in terms of modifying our orders. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an elegant meal out.

Had steak sandwich which came a little rare for my liking - I was not asked how I would like it cooked. The fries were over cooked and the bread was a bit burnt. As it was a main course I thought it would come with something else on the plate. Was a bit sparse.
Pity really as plenty of other plates that came out of the kitchen looked more appetising.

I had made a booking about 4 weeks ago to ensure a table for myself and friends and was very disappointed when I received a call 2 days before from the restaurant to cancel my booking in order to facilitate newer bookings. In the end my booking was moved to an earlier time but I felt cancelling a booking made weeks ago to facilitate newer bookings was unfair and not good business.

Dear Anonymous, I'm sorry that we had to call you to move the time of your booking. Unfortunately a lot has changed in 4 weeks and we've had to adapt as well as we can. Apologies if moving the timing of your booking caused upset for you and your group. And also I'm sorry to see that you found the rest of your experience less than satisfactory.
