Came here for my husband’s birthday and we had the 7 course tasting menu. Bigger portion size than other fine dining restaurants and you leave feeling very full and satisfied. Food was really good and the staff were all friendly and attentive - we really can’t fault this restaurant at all and we look forward to coming back soon. Definitely recommend!

Absolutely beautiful evening and atmosphere, great service with stunning views. We went for the 7 course tasting menu with canapés, pairs with a bottle of red. The bespoke Gin and tonic was the perfect start.

Excellent. Le diner dégustation avec la vue sur la tamise et les building est magnifique et juste parfait pour un diner en amoureux. Ambiance très calme. Personnel très accueillant et compétent.

As we do not eat meat anymore, we asked to mix the fishes of the gastro menu with some of the veg meals of the other one : lovely partition, perfectly cooked and served.
Nice moment with the chef as soon as we asked to meet her.
We'll come back in Mach (already booked).

Food was great. View was excellent. Excellent service by the staff. We had a wonderful wedding anniversary celebration. The staff even prepared a surprise anniversary cake/ dessert for us which was very lovely. We will definitely be back.

Food was good, although not to Michelin star standard. The ambience and view is excellent of course. The experience was let down by the hotel receptionist and the lack of information about car parking validating tickets. Being interrogated. By the receptionist was not how I expected to end my evening.

Good food and a pleasant space although strangely sat all four parties almost on top of one another. Waiters were keen but slightly cumbersome in style. Felt they were going through the training manual of customer service.

This is a must place to visit. The ambience is beautiful, the staff are incredibly sociable and knowledgeable and the food, wow.
The 7 course taster with stonefish and turbot and quail and venison was amazing. The sauces with each course were delicate and just divine.

We were rushed on arrival and pushed to give choice of food & wine, staff knew we were going to a concert. We were then left sitting for over an hour! We asked on more than one occasion for our food and met various excuses. I would not go again, although a beautiful restaurant with lovely views. In restaurant favour they did take a percentage off the final bill.

Good food and nice flavours. Superb views of Canary Wharf. Only let down was that the service was "ok" - there were seemed to be no co-ordination or pattern between staff. It felt rushed as if they wanted to churn us over and get us out, although half the restaurant was empty. For example the waiter would ask us if we were ready to order; we said no. And then another waiter would ask us again 30 seconds later. Another example - we wanted some extra time to peruse over the wine list but the waiter asked if "we were done with the wine list" and took it away, without asking us what we wanted to drink. The service seemed impersonal. For a restaurant doing fine dining; it lacked the personal touches and service that those other restaurants offer.

Great place, a bit of a secret, so not over busy. The food is excellent, service same and they take such care. Well worth the money, free champagne plus much more??
The colleagues were great so attentive and the food was perfect.
So easy for the 02 shows and free parking for while your at the meal, so good.

Previous visits have been excellent - this time was terrible. The waiters / waitresses seemed to have no idea what they were doing - we waited such a long time for all of our courses - they brought the wrong wine - the men got served first - very very poor.
