Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

Starter brilliant main course didn't live up to same standard. Friendly service and good wine. Good decor. Will visit again on the basis of the starter and service. One of the group had a fantastic main course.

“Kenilworths best”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

I was recommended to visit this restaurant by a friend, it did not disappoint on the food and service which were both outstanding. I am not normally a fan of chocolate desserts but the chocolate fondant was one of the finest I have ever tasted not overly sweet and just the right consistency.
The staff were freindly and quietly efficient especially the wine service. My only reservation is that the tables for two were to close together for such an upmarket establishment. But I will be returning.

“Well worth it”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

When does this ever happen!

Your ribeye is a little fatty but ribeye is so you choose not to mention it. The manager later in the evening comes over, acknowledges of his own accord that the ribeye is fatty and does not charge!!

The food is outstanding and by far the best restaurant in Kenilworth.

Dinner for 2 with wine £130

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Taken here by the relatives for a birthday meal.

The food was excellent; there was not a thing on the menu I would not have eaten. It was the right balance of fine-dining and accessibility. The presentation was also outstanding. The service was very, very good; attentive, friendly, but discrete.

I really feel this restaurant aims very high and achieves on every level - well worth a detour and very deserving of a visit if in the area.
