We booked a table in the restaurant for our anniversary. We had seen the menu choices and drinks prices in advance on the website so we knew how much the evening would cost and were happy with that. We were greeted promptly and got excellent service whilst waiting in the bar area to be seated at our table. It was there we overheard a couple debating on how to keep the cost of the meal down by negotiating smaller tasting menus and cheaper drinks! We did wonder why they didn't check the cost in advance as we could tell their evening would be spoiled by the stress of it! Having eaten at a lot of great restaurants including some 1 and 2 Michelin starred we did wonder if we would find anything new at Sat Bains and were pleasantly surprised. Each course of the tasting menu was excellent (we particularly enjoyed the sensory experience with the venison) and accompanied by a great bottle of champagne - what more could you want! My only small criticism would be that if you are sat in the conservatory and look up you can see a few wires and cables which need tucking away. Small details I know but restaurant owners need to consider the 360 degree experience and they were right in my view!Either move them or move the chairs to have another view! Having said that you don't pick this restaurant for its views so I haven't changed the excellent rating I've given. On a par with the food was trying the sparkling saki (yes and its amazing) and having the tempered chocolate stacks with our coffees. And we got to meet Sat. He is apparently more than happy to meet his guests if he is there and we were showed round his kitchens, introduced to all of his staff and had a long chat with him. Perfect evening!
