    Tasteful decor and very comfortable seating. Good wine and delicious food. I had the best onglet steak and frites I have ever eaten. The service was very professional and friendly. Great atmosphere in the restaurant.

    One waitress was severely short on training in the menu but it worked out in the end, and the food and drinks were superb.

    I had a booking for 8:15PM to Dine and we got there early for drinks and My Friend already had a cocktail so we ordered another 2x drinks before dining. While we were catching, we saw a mouse running around and thought ok no worries its from outside. The another from behind the bar and then a third in the corner of the bar where the cashier was. So we told them All and they acted as if nothing was happening and so we asked for the bill and they didnt even apologise also we had to pay for the drinks and it was by far the worst experience ever and should not be open for hygiene to public. The service is under par to be honest also and very ameture by far for the level it wants to achieve in the food restaurant industry. Quite Shocked and totally unexpectable, something needs to be actioned.

    They said they did not have an open table account so my client and I were asked to leave as they were fully booked. Total disaster.

    Open table booked a table for us on 11 December 2019. We arrived on time, only to be told there was a private party and they do not use Open table. We understand that other people had the same experience.

    I popped in for a couple of small plates, and had the crispy foie gras and the piggy burger. Both were tricky (messy) to eat but absolutely delicious!! The bar was empty when I arrived at 6.30 but buzzing when I left an hour later.

    Good value limited choice lunch menu. Food is excellent. However, book with OpenTable and not the restaurant web site. I initially used their web site, got a “we’ll get back to you to confirm your reservation” message and they didn’t! So, I cancelled the initial unconfirmed booking and made an OpenTable reservation - which they simply cancelled! We were lucky and got a table but their system is, at the very least, not clear and not efficient. Lesson learned!!

    We had a lovely evening but it was pricier than we expected. Service was good and food tasty, But the portions are small and not great value for money.
