The end night I ordered from the main menu and that too was excellent. Tip: The staff did not automatically give us the 3 courses for £25 menu, however, and we had to... More

Not a 5 star restaurant Geared towards business people in a rush. Avoid it and walk across to Mermaid Quay where there are many better options

The food here was really excellent, nouvelle cuisine, so we were glad we had opted for the 3 course menu.

Nevertheless, service was excellent. Sadly... More
