“It was all going so well”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

And then they ruined it.

I came here last night with a French and a Moroccan friend. Everything was fine, the food, the atmosphere, the wine. Of course, things carried on after the New Year started at midnight and a couple of friends who'd celebrated elsewhere rang to say hello. They asked where I was and said they'd pop in.

When they came, they sat at our table but - and I know they shouldn't have - got a bottle of beer out that they'd bought in the previous place. Without ado, the manager called the bouncers and had them escorted out. I have rarely felt so humiliated and simply paid and left too.

The way to approach this should have been either to ask my friends to get rid of the beer or to tell them or me that they weren't welcome and invite them to leave.

I have praised this restaurant in the past and tried to get people to go there but no more. It can fester as far as I'm concerned.

Needless to say, I shall never go back.

“The Best View You Are Going To Find”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

The food here is always excellent. The view is stunning. The service good. The value excellent. The only drawback as a resident is that they never change the menu, adding a dish of the day would be a great move.
I see one reviewer marked this restaurant down because the stairs were dirty as the stairs serve the apartments below and not the restaurant this should be ignored.

Reviewed 25 September 2011

Expensive, very mediocre food, not a pleasant atmosphere, the service also leaves a lot to be desired.
