Summary

“For the perfect first date”, this “magical” (if “cramped”), candle-lit Soho townhouse is second to none – a “shabby-chic treasure” that’s “barely changed in three decades” (although actually, behind the scenes, they put in a big new kitchen this year). The “simple, daily changing fare” is unfailingly good value, but the star turn is the “incredible wines at stunning prices”.

Summary

“Unique” and “utterly charming”, this ancient candlelit Soho townhouse remains one of London’s most prodigiously popular bolt-holes; “squashed” it may be, and the “extraordinary” wine may outshine the cuisine (“reasonably priced” as it is)… but “if you only have eyes for your date, this is the place!”

Summary

“The quintessence of shabby chic” – this “quirky”, “candlelit” Soho phenomenon is “the kind of place you find in Paris not London”, and “incredibly romantic”; its “simple”, “refreshingly honest” cooking is “good (but not knock-out)”, but the “eclectic, encyclopaedic list of wines is truly wonderful”; “sit upstairs if you can”.

"It's not haute cuisine but the no frills cooking is very flavoursome; the service is friendly and efficient; and the ground floor was almost full on a midweek lunchtime. Very good value. Will go again."

"I really think this restaurant is over hyped. Decor is shabby and it is quite cramped. Menu is difficult to read and most of the choices I found were unappealing. Really nice waiters who were very helpful though."

"Such a reliable choice for a pre-theatre dinner. We sat down at 6pm and managed to get three very quick, very delicious courses in and got to the theatre JUST in time! The wine suggestions were spot on from our lovely friendly waiter. We keep on coming back and it's never disappointed!"
