* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Too often branded “a disappointment… and an expensive disappointment at that” – this incredible, gilded neo-Byzantine chamber on Piccadilly Circus has been through a succession of owners, of which this year-old Milanese régime is the latest. By-and-large ignored by Londoners nowadays, such feedback as there is talks of “bland food, poorly presented”.

“Another dud” – this “extraordinary neo-Byzantine dining room” (“possibly the most jaw-dropping space in the West End”) – is so “disappointing when one considers just how great it could be.” With the previous incumbent going into administration, this new Milanese régime is not only “eyewateringly expensive” but too often provides “shocking food and inattentive service”.
