Summary

This “really friendly” and supremely “cosy” stalwart (opposite Andrew Edmunds) is little known, but has long been a good option for a “romantic” bite in Soho. It earns consistently solid praise for its modern European cooking, with some “excellent dishes” on the small menu. Top Tip – “sit in the great secret garden” out back.

This low-profile stalwart makes a particularly “cosy” choice for a sociable meal in central Soho and provides “very enjoyable” modern European dishes (“though the menu could vary more often”); cute rear courtyard too.

Summary

“A fantastic little find” in Soho (rather eclipsed by Andrew Edmunds across the road); staff are “very friendly and helpful”, it has a “charming” vibe, the “regularly changing, seasonal cooking” is “dependably good”, and “its cute courtyard is lovely in warm weather”.
