Harden's survey result
“Understated Holland Park local” worth discovering on account of its “consistently delicious and always changing British food” – an “inventive menu providing enough diversity to make it a place to return to on a regular basis”. It’s “cosy” too, with “charming, quirky service” and an “excellent, interesting and different wine list”; in short, a “perfect neighbourhood bistro”.
“An exceptional local” – this “small” modern bistro in Holland Park attracts folks from neighbouring postcodes and beyond with its “most delicious” Gallic-influenced dishes (from an ex-Terroir team) and “an interesting wine list with some unusual choices”. One or two reporters discern “a lack of ambience”, but for most people it’s a “cosy” place with particularly “charming” service.
“Clever without being pretentious” (with “something always tempting on the specials board”) characterises the somewhat “unusual” Gallic-influenced modern cuisine at this “classy” (if “cramped and noisy”) neighbourhood spot in Holland Park, where supporting attractions include “well-chosen wine and a warm welcome”.
“At last we have a terrific local” – Holland Park types are cock-a-hoop with this “buzzy and busy” indie newcomer (just 40 seats) from an ex-Terroirs duo. Service is “impeccable” (“no pomposity or smugness here”), the modern British dishes are “lovely, fresh and beautifully cooked” and there’s a well-selected wine list.
