We were offered the option to sit in the 'waiting' area before our meal but we thought that, since we had ordered the tasting menu and therefore didn't really need time to peruse the menu, we'd like to be seated straight away and that wasn't a problem. (A few people have complained on here about being seated in the waiting area for too long but my advice would be - ask! If you want to be seated at your table straight away, just ask! Don't sit there and stew as you'll just start the whole experience off on a bad note.)
The food is delicious, inventive and beautifully presented. I am gluten free (or, rather, I require gluten-free food!) and this was very carefully considered in each course, e.g. my amuse bouches had houmous rather than taramasalata (which contains bread), my strawberry cheesecake dessert had gluten-free granola rather than crushed biscuit - great attention to detail and the serving staff were careful to explain how dishes were adapted to be gluten free.
We had the six-course tasting menu and were at the restaurant for three and a half hours. Some people have commented that the service is slow and the portions are tiny but I really think, if you're having the tasting menu that (a) you have to allow yourself plenty of time and (b) you really have to get into the spirit of this kind of meal. Yes, the gaps between courses can be up to 15 minutes but this gives you time to think about the delicious food you just ate and to chat to your friends and family and admire the view. I really think it's about the overall experience, not being served super fast. I also disagree that the portions are small. I was full but not overfull.
The wines by the glass are reasonably priced for a restaurant of this calibre and there's plenty of choice.
The restaurant is very attractively decorated and the view is super.
I checked at the start of the meal whether it would be OK to take photos of my food and that was completely fine but I kept forgetting to do this when it was placed in front of me because it looked so amazing that I tucked in immediately! So, apologies, but no photos!
