Food and service were good, however, a single gin and tonic was more expensive than a double gin and tonic which does not make sense. But otherwise, everything else was good.

Food was very good - especially enjoyed the fresh oysters! And the cheese plate for dessert was interesting and very tasty along with the sticky toffee pudding which was light. Service was friendly, professional and she gave us helpful information. We will return.

I had dinner at this restaurant with my partner on Valentines weekend. It was a very warm experience and the staff were lovely. There was a lot of impressive artwork to look at and we would definitely book dinner here again and recommend to our friends.

Good food, good wine and ambience. Despite it being Valentine’s night, we did not have to wait to long between courses. Our main waiter Virgilio was outstanding...

Are you a foreigner who knows what actual good food looks and tastes like? Then do NOT come to this restaurant.
Do you like good service? Then stay away.
This is an overpriced restaurant which definitely does not warrant the price tag.
Ordered some food which looked like from the kebab van outside, the taste was fine but disappointing overall.
You're better off just going to burger king.
The live piano is amazing.

PS If you're British though, come here you will LOVE it.

We always wanted to stop by here, as it looks like a fancy restaurant. We enjoyed it, the food was very nice and they have an affordable set menu. Service was pretty good and the food came quickly. Can't complain :)

Great atmosphere, the wines are a tad expensive especially when they add another
12 1/2% service charge! The food good but a little pricey £15.00 for fish and chips, the set menu is good value.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunchtime meal in your restaurant last Thursday and would have no hesitation in recommending it to our friends. The lunchtime special is affordable but I would have to admit, unless it was a special occasion, an evening meal may be a little too expensive. I do realise it is an upmarket venue and it is a perfect eating place for a beautiful city like Oxford. I hope to come again one day. Finally may I compliment you on the beautifullly clean and tasteful bathroom/WC facilities.

Good quality food and brilliant service. Piano music in the background was pleasant and we were seated in the quieter side of the restaurant - ideal as there were two of us. Thoroughly recommend if you want a good quality meal in a pleasant setting.

We were a party of 11 and had a very good meal. The two 7 year olds were quickly feed with their chosen pizzas and provided with colouring crayons. Our order from the al la carte menu arrived together and was well presented and of high quality. We were not rushed or felt that we had outstayed our welcome. An excellent restaurant for a relaxed family gathering.
