“Cozy and lovery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2013

This is my second visit.
The restaurant of cozy atmosphere provides food early on the morning Saturdays.
When I stayed at the Mayfair hotel, I would have breakfast regulery here.
You can choose the number of eggs.
The hardness of egg Benedict was perfectly for me.

“Intimate and cosy in Mayfair!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013 via mobile

This is a charming, cosy restaurant in the heart of Mayfair with a traditional English menu and different types of burgers seem to be central to this. Having said that, there's something very French about this place, from the wooden panelling to the French posters. It's somewhere literary figures like Hemingway might have discussed their works over a glass of red wine.
The burgers are served in a brioche bun; their touch of je ne said quoi. I had the fish pie: salmon with mirepoix in a lovely light cream sauce topped by a puff pastry lid and served with delicious potatoes wedges and perfectly cooked veg. The chips accompanying the burger are excellent. See my pics - they speak for themselves. Two mains and two soft drinks were just over £30. I only wished I had room for their scrumptious desserts. I've eaten here many times before, so I know just how good it is.
