    We booked a table for lunch because on open table have the option for it but when we arrived there they told us that they don’t have lunch menu only for brunch so we decided to try it and after that we decided to find another place for lunch so please could you modify in the bookings that they don’t serve lunch. Thanks

    Tremendous food with exceptional flavours and delightful presentation. Unusual combinations of tastes that work brilliantly. A bias towards fish and vegetarian and all splendid. Smaller plates, but three courses from the a la carte was more than enough. The staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. Not the cheapest but I guess you get what you pay for in Kensington. Overall I would recommend.

    extremely disappointing experience. booked weeks in advance, said I was going to the RAH for a concert at 7pm and asked at what time to be there to enjoy the pre-theatre tasting menu (6 courses 45£ - note they also have a tasting menu of 8 dishes at 65£ and 12 dishes at 85£). we arrive at 5:30pm as advised, just to be told that menu does not exist anymore starting from today. only the 8@65 or 12@85 available, but better go a la carte if we are short of time as all dishes come together as a sharing concept. we go a la carte and ask for two starters and two mains. the starters are bite sized/finger food - no idea how you could share. the mains are two/three bites each. we are starving at this point but very short on time so with plates still on the table we struggle to get attention to order dessert and bill all in one go. overall terrible experience. putting this specific experience aside: food is very well plated. flavours are good (nothing exceptional, nothing to send back). portions do not work as sharing concept. price point does not work as a la carte but probably worth as 8-course @ 65. service lacking (had to struggle the whole time to get any attention).
