“We left with out even placing an order....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

We have eaten here many times previously and always loved it.
We were very dissapointed last night with the new menu which we felt was trying to be too clever and we left with out even placing an order.

“Divine food creation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

First time to this restaurant, we went mid week and the atmosphere was good. The oysters could not be fresher, they tasted like they were just pulled from the sea. I had Gnocchi for entree and the Snapper for mains. What looked like small servings were made up by very good combinations of flavours and I ended up feeling filled and satisfied. Deserts were to die for and all at our table were very impressed. Combined with very good French wine, it was an excellent night.

“Poor Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

This place is no means cheap so expected to have good service this did not happen we had a young lady that had been sent in at the deep end with poor training.
It all started when she bought the wrong bottle of wine twice i asked for a pinot and she bought savaugnion and then i asked here for a pinot and she bought out the savaugnion again.
To top it of when she bought the bill she put two bottles of wine on it i queried it and she sorry it was a keying error
The food was good but the whole evening was ruined by such amateur service i will not be going back and i have been several times over the years.

“A strange mixture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

Using various websites to guide our choice my colleagues and I dined at B . The service and atmosphere were very good but the menu and foods offered were a strange mixture of traditional and obscure. We went for the 'share menu' as the best compromise but the servings were small. Our experience didn't match the ratings.
