    Wonderful evening. Always fun dining at the Ivy. Our waiter was exceptional, lovely guy from South Africa ( sorry forgotten his name) very attentive. We loved our table the atmosphere was great. Food really tasty. I always order the same! Chicken Milanese my favourite. Starter Duck Salad….amazing flavoursome dish, I’d recommend! It was my partners 60th so we were surprised by a celebration dessert plate which was very special, thank you staff.

    Wenn ich ein Menü kaufe mit Vorspeise und Hauptgang sollte man davon ausgehen, das man satt wird + überteuerte Getränke + Servicegebühr. War zwar lecker aber das hat nicht einmal für eine Kindportion gereicht.

    Cucumber sandwich’s on the afternoon tea were soggy, not just ours looking at other peoples plates too. A better balance between savoury and sweet would have been preferred with slightly too much emphasis on the sweet. Very friendly and attentive staff and a nice birthday touch with the additional cake was much appreciated,
