Consistently good, but exceptionally top of their game recently. I would order one of everything on the menu, everything sounded that good.
Volta really has stepped up to a whole new level.
Will be back again soon

The service could be improved, staff weren’t very attentive - we had to poor our own wine, then ask for more wine, and no one asked how our food was. They then added service charge on for 5 of us….. Would have been happier paying if we got the basic service levels. Food was amazing though.

Beautiful food. Small dishes but plenty of it and very tasty. Service was excellent too. The only thing I would say is that it would be good to have some serving spoons, when your dining with a few of you and you're sharing diferent dishes.



Will definitely return.
