My husband and I have been meaning to eat here for some time and now regret we didn't go sooner. We did expect more of a canteen type venue but this wasn't the case at all. The restaurant had cosiness with a touch of elegance. We had a superb experience that in many ways succeeded restaurants like Memoirs, even without considering the actual price difference. Staff were warm, friendly and welcoming. Bar and waiting staff were attentive and yet not imposing. The food was heavenly in every single mouthful. I was reluctant to let my husband taste just one forkful of mine as I suddenly felt quite possessive of my food. However, tasting a little of his was delightful! Each course was so beautifully presented. Drinks were excellent value too. To pay £40 for a meal and drinks for 2 was unbelievable; you cannot get better value. If the lighting was just a little softer this would be severe competition for all the high end restaurants in Essex, in fact it probably already is . We will definitely be returning regularly to try the different ranges of cuisine and the lunch menus. Well done to all the staff, the students all have very bright futures ahead of them. I just wish you did outside catering, I would book you in a heartbeat.
