It’s “more than adequate for pre- or post-Almeida Theatre” (opposite), but this large D&D Group venture, in Islington, again incites rather ambivalent commentary – its “noisy” interior can seem “characterless”, and its contemporary cooking is “well presented” but a trifle “boring”.

"Having been a regular at the Almeida for 10 years, it is fair to say it is still in transition to its new reincarnation. Food was good (although my starter was tiny!), but gone is the trolley of charcuterie, foie gras terrine and dauphinoise potatoes. Service was confused and flecked with more attitude than the Almeida of old. The wine list bore no similarity to the food menu - I can only presume they are running down their stocks from the restaurant's previous incarnation. Still, we had a very pleasant evening, but I doubt I will rush back. Which is a shame, because I was a big fan of the old Almeida..."
