Such a beautiful restaurant! Crisp, clean and comfortable. Service is top notch, subtle and professional without being overly stiff. And the food is just Amazing. The care and thought that went into each plate was exceptional. We had a fantastic evening and I cant wait to revisit again.

I don't like the decor here, it's kind of cold like a dentist in the dreams of some 1970s Kubrick character. White table cloths and office like chairs. No good. The food however is lovely, if a little rich. I would highly recommend that if you suffer with rich food that you chose two light (e.g fish) courses out of the four. You won't be left hungry don't worry! Each on its own will be amazing and with the beautiful breads and various Amuse-bouches you will leave happy. The wait staff here are incredible, knowledgable and friendly professionals that can pick a wine from a vague mumbling of what you may fancy. I like this place, and think you should try it! It may be rich, very French and a little stark, but it is ridiculously good!

From the moment of entry to our departure, nothing could be faulted. The amuse-bouche was gorgeous and set the scene for a very memorable meal. The waiting staff were attentative to just the right degree, never intrusive. It goes without saying the food was out of this world. We loved our little wander around the kitchen garden. All in all, a wonderful night out.

We went there for a family dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The service was impeccable although a bit intimidating as the waiting staff were very serious, prim and proper. The food was exquisitely presented with wonderful little food treats in between courses. As often the case with these fine dining restaurants, we left having enjoyed the food very much but asked ourselves once we were in the car ' Are you still hungry? '. All of us answered in the affirmative.

Recently had the tasting menu for a family celebration. We were sent on a journey of flavours and textures. From the moment of entering the restaurant we were treated as special. The wait staff friendly and attentive and apart from the taste menu we had many other little food treats in between which were a surprise. A wonderful experience.
