"Love the restaurant, good food, good service but to be honest it's not great value. Portion sizes seemed a bit parsimonious and it's expensive for what you get. Prefer the Murano in Tavistock St"

"Went for celebratory but casual lunch with my wife and this delivered perfectly. Friendly, approachable, efficient but not overbearing service. Delicious food from cichetti with pre-lunch drinks right through to dessert all delivered at a relaxed pace but without undue pauses. Not cheap but well worth it."

"We were a party of 4 for an early dinner. Our friends love the food but I think it's very expensive for what was basically rice with a bit of (in my case) rabbit sprinkled on top. And the wine is TOO dear. The total bill was in my view extortionate."
