Great location, but quite a noisy restaurant. Have a feeling that you’re eating in a corridor. Service and staff were excellent - very welcoming and attentive. Great seafood starter, and decided to have steak for main course - just for menu variety. Three companions had...More

I cannot imagine a better place than this for breakfast. History, spectacular and evocative environment, great service and beautifully prepared food, what could be better. Ask for a table overlooking the concourse, it's an experience as well as a meal worth making the journey for.

The venue is truly impressive, the service immaculate, the drinks are plentiful and the food is good. It was nice dining experience. If I had to make any suggestion it would be for a more sophisticated food menu. I found it a little plain.

The chef prepared an 8-course tasting menu with an amazing selection of desserts to follow. We - loved - everything. Top that with Luca's friendly service and Rebecca's (on-point!) wine pairing suggestions and we left the place feeling like royalty. What more can I say?...More
