A “stalwart modern British venue in Bushey High Street, in the otherwise culinary wastelands of Watford”, whose “very good, straightforward” cuisine makes it something of a “local gem” – another plus being the warm welcome from “affable” proprietor Alonso.

A “lovely restaurant” opposite the church that’s become a fixture of the High Street over twenty years for its “totally decent and reliable modern European cooking, fronted by the genial Italian owner” (Alfonso); “a good option in a seriously underserved area”.

“After 19 years, this high street modern European, presided over by the ever-smiling proprietor Alfonso, continues to provide an outpost of quality food in the underserved north London/Herts borders”; happily, the “vibrant” food still comes at “sound prices” too.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
