Summary

“I just loved everything about it!” – Behind an inconspicuous side-door in Shoreditch, on the panelled first-floor of a converted pub (a pre-gentrification strip club, whose ground floor is nowadays Smoking Goat), chef Tomos Parry (ex-head-chef of Kitty Fishers) “exceeds high expectations” and has a smash hit on his hands, with this “terrific” launch – the survey’s highest rated newcomer. The “open plan kitchen approach works well”, with the focus on the large grill which produces most of the Basque-influenced cuisine here. “So, obviously you’re going to order the turbot” – for which the restaurant is named (look it up) – which is presented whole and “utterly delicious”. But “the food is superb throughout and well priced considering its quality and the chef’s pedigree”. “Very happy staff”, “a lovely atmosphere” and thoughtful wine list complete the picture.

"Great food but one huge problem - the wine list! It is hard to believe they could get so much right in this restaurant but get the wine list so wrong. Two or three rather eclectic wines at the bottom of the price rankings to start with, then ramping straight up to a ridiculously overpriced list. It looks like it is deliberately designed to force you to part with a minimum of £45 plus per bottle. I will not eat there again until they fix it - you just feel like you're being ripped off. Three friends from my office said the same, unprompted. What a shame."

"Worth going for the anchovy bread alone Amazing whole turbot Beef very solid Loved the attitude wine list a bit eccentric but just about works Tables too close together - if you were on a date you’d struggle to have an intimate conversation "

"Great food all round and a nice relaxed atmosphere. The highlights were the turbot and the clam starter. Amazing high quality food."
