“So romantic, you could say yes to anyone!”; this “womb-like” Covent Garden wonderland is again London’s No.1 passion-magnet – “the best tables are in the conservatory”; the food is often “excellent”, but it’s eclipsed by the “encyclopaedic” wine list.

"You don't have to eat in the conservatory to enjoy a wonderful lunch."

"Like many of your readers, this is a favourite of ours and so well located for lunch when in covant garden. The food always pleases us by being better than we remember - this time their fois gras was up to par as was pickled herring starter. Mains of haddock and rabbit were well presented with plenty of vegetables - hundreds of tiny tomatoes -to make it pleasing to view and eat. Deserts less strong this time but still good - too subtle panacotta and interesting semolina. Wine comes with the lunch menu at an excellent prices as is the whole event. Only quibble is that tables are very squashed so not for secret discussions. But diners are quiet and well behaved.. So far, they are not taking advantage of their popularity as do nearly everyone else - may it continue and we will be back. PS - this time amusing side show of a "strongly" canoodling couple just in front of us to an extent not seen before in an upmarket restaurant. Amusing at forst but after an hour not so nice. We said nothing but manager noticed and was furious that this was "in his restaurant" so he apoligised and moved us well away. The couple carried on for another hour...then left separately..."

"It might have been a let-down because we had such high expectations from earlier reviews, I guess. Nothing to complain about, just it felt a bit cramped with large groups at nearby tables, so not as romantic as I'd expected. Having said that, we did book the night before!"
