A real find for lunch. Lovely setting outdoors under olive trees. Quietly festive. The sourdough bread is outstanding. The food was inventive and very tasty. I would go there again and recommend it to friends.

Food was delicious but the service a tiny bit pretentious and the noise level is on the high end of the spectrum.

Would not recommend the high top counters seats.

Smaller portions than anticipated for a high price. There are many similar places that for the same price and quality of food I am not left disappointed.

The small plates at the top of the menu are slightly too minimal, and the space is amazing but could lower the music volume a bit when busy as can be a bit loud.

Truly wonderful place. Fantastic food and service. There have been some slight developments (to the interior design) since the pandemic which make it more comfortable and cosy. In the past I've found it a little cramped and loud, but this dinner was pretty much perfect. The (all natural) wine list is great, but I do think they need a lower-end option. Having wine prices *start* at £27 seems a little high (though it didn't stop us!).

I have had consistently great food whenever I've eaten here. I was worried that booking a table in the courtyard would miss out on the atmosphere of the restaurant, but it's so carefully done to feel like an extention to the main dining room. The service is always impeccable, but casual, friendly and understated. Another fantastic evening out, and, for the quality of the food, amazing value for money.

In the past the restaurant has been a little bit crowded but one (rare) upside of COVID is that the seating was much more spaced out which was lovely. A great selection of dishes - beautifully presented. Very attentive service.

Dreadful service. I ordered a cold sea bream carpaccio as a starter, followed by Hake and potatoes in a cucumber and butter sauce. I hadn’t eaten more than half my starter when the the main course was presented, so I had to set my starter aside in preference to my hot main course. The fish came with just three small new potatoes. When I asked the waiter for a couple more potatoes, he said no, because they “hadn’t got any in that day”, and he said that they didn’t time the delivery of their dishes, as their menu was “sharing plates”. This had not been explained when I ordered, and in any case, as a solo diner, they could see that I didn’t have anyone to share with. I asked to speak to the manager for an explanation as to why I couldn’t have more potatoes: he told me that I had been served the “proper portion” which “was measured at the price point”, and said I couldn’t have a couple more potatoes. I asked why at the £24 “price point” for the main course, it was not possible to provide a couple of extra potatoes to supplement their meagre offering, and the response was “well, potatoes are expensive”. I was flabbergasted: new potatoes are £1.20 per kilogram, which meant I was asking for maybe 30pence worth! The manager offered to deduct the cost of the main, and I paid up, leaving both of my dishes unfinished. Westerns Laundry, and the two staff I interacted with, seemed to have no interest or inclination to respond to my reasonable request. Their defensive reasons (or excuses) for refusing my request suggest a default no-can-do attitude. Never again.

Great place and ambience, staff friendly and very helpful, food is amazing. Oysters and croquettes best I've ever tasted but all dishes are great especially the fish. Menu changes daily/weekly. Outdoor area is lovely. If I lived closer I would be here every week!

Wonderful food and very attentive service. Downsides were the eye watering prices for wine and that they encouraged us to order 2 mains and 3 starters to share. Was way too much for 2 women and luckily we were able stop them bringing the second main. The whole sharing thing was a bit unnecessary. Next time I’d simply order a starter and a main each.
