"Absolutely wonderful meal. The menu was exciting and the food was delivered with creativity and style. We could not fault the service. A thoroughly wonderful lunch in a very nice atmosphere."
"Dine here for a very tasty Indian lunch in stylish surroundings. Nice quiet tables, attentive staff, varied menu, and the Indian art on the walls contributes to that eastern ambiance; all in all a rather unexpected part of kings rd. This is not Notting Hill Indian with beer; a bit pricier with polite service!"
"The battered fish and chips is hard to beat. Well cooked, firm flaky fish and plenty of home made chips."
"A comfortable restaurant, extremely helpful staff and outstanding food."
"The Horse and Groom continues to provide consistently high standards. The staff are very helpful and friendly, the food is a high standard, with outstanding vegetables and the rooms are very comfortable."
"It has been said that one will only be disappointed if one returns to a place that has wonderful memories. It was 10 ten years since our last visit to Mr Underhill's but the place still continues to stand out from others. If one was to criticise it would be to say that four 'tasters' before a three-course set meal is a tad OTT. Nevertheless the evening was a great success, not least because this restaurant with no choice was able to cater to our eccentric dietary requirements and I am sure that the other diners did not feel deprived in eating a dinner that suited us. The room is beautifully appointed and gives a sense of relaxation. I shall not lave it another 10 years before returning, despite the distance from home."
"Wow! Despite taking advantage of a special offer, we were definitely not made to feel 'inferior' to the usual clientele. The food is absolutely exquisite and imaginatively presented. I shall return."
"I literally stumbled upon this eatery having been separated from my companions on the coastal walk. Despite no booking, exhausted and not exactly the best-dressed diner that night, the staff went the extra mile to make me feel welcome and comfortable. I enjoyed an excellent meal, during which my companions arrived, having surmised that I would probably seek out the best eatery in town."
"My grading might deter some diners. However, if you just want a quick, cheap meal before heading off the local theatre or cinema, it can't be beaten."
"The combination of the surroundings, professional service and variety of fresh fish make for a delightful albeit expensive treat"
South American restaurateur and designer Juan Santa Cruz will launch his first London venue Casa Cruz in Notting Hill on Tuesday 7 July. The 80-cover restaurant, previously The Clarendon a Victorian pub on Clarendon Road, is set over two floors.
The site has been extensively restored over two years (designed by Cruz himself), with the Santa Cruz Co.’s trademark design stamp, a large copper door and an oval copper bar in the centre of the room.
As well as a bar serving an extensive Latin-influenced cocktail list there is also a heated roof terrace. The menu will be predominantly European, with Argentine influences. Dishes include: wild sea bass crudo and artichokes with lemon and olive oil, available alongside main dishes including Charcoal grilled monkfish; and Cajun chicken breast.
Argentine steaks will of course be a highlight, but there will be British fish and game, and French poultry on the menu too. Desserts include: Dulche de leche flan; and lemon polenta cake, alongside house made ice creams and sorbets.
On the cocktail list: Pisco Sours, Martinis, Negronis, Mojitos and Cairpiroskas, while the wine list will comprise old and new world bottles, with a dedicated section of organic and biodynamic wines.
Santa Cruz Co. owns three restaurants in Argentina, Casa Cruz, Isabel and Aldo’s, all in the heart of Buenos Aires.
