“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I visited Harry's last night and had the 7 course tasting menu. The staff were lovely, very attentive and the food was excellent. We had an amazon voucher which made it great value, not sure I'd want to pay the full price.

“Groupon voucher felt cheated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Bought a groupon voucher @ £44, telephoned beforehand & told their wine pairing option was an additional £20, but when we got the bill the wine pairing option was an additional £45. So beware, that's £89 to wine & dine with a groupon voucher. If the restaurant was up front & honest, we would have bought a bottle of wine at half the price, rather than a glass of wine with 4 of the 5 courses. The first glass of wine tasted days old and appeared to be leftover wine, we had to complain.
The food itself was very good and is it was not for the way we felt cheated, we would have given 4 out of 5, even the the asparagus was over cooked and the staff found it difficult to raise a smile.

“Nice place and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Came here for dinner with a group of friends. One of our friends have the Taste card so could use it for 50% off a la carte items in the menu. Service was very attentive and friendly. Good atmosphere and noticed that it was a favourite drinking place for proffesionals working in the City/Bank area.

Ordered the seared mackerel with chorizo as a starter. Flavourful and mackerel fillets were crispy and spiciness of the chorizo bits really adds a different dimension to the oily mackerel fillets.

Had the Asian inspired five spice Barbary duck as main. I felt my duck breasts was slightly overcooked and a bit touch although I have requested for medium-well done. Perhaps I should have asked for medium. The flavours were definitely nice though.

Chose the marinated strawberries with elderflower custard. Very refreshing and absolutely loved the hint of elderflower in the custard.

Overall a very nice little cosy establishment by the side of busy Gresham street. Enjoyed the meal very much.

“Great little Gem of a restaurant/bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

Great little restaurant / bar. Staff were friendly and very helpful, Food was fairly good value for money, even more so as we used a Taste Card and got 50pct off the 'Al La Carte' menu for food. All the food dishes were very well presented and served well and all dishes were very tasty. The restaurant and bar was quite busy, so I would advise booking, so as not to be disappointed, we were a group of seven, who will definitely be returning in the near future. .
