Summary

This glitzy Cuban-Chinese restaurant and cocktail bar in a boutique hotel near the Coliseum has a “great location” and groovy decor. Verdicts on the main food offering, though, are variable: “first time I’ve been back for more than a decade, when it first opened: still lovely looking, starters were tasty, mains very ordinary and it was certainly overpriced”. Top Tip: “afternoon tea with an original twist”.

Summary

“Brilliant decor” and “lovely mojitos” have always been highpoints at this “sexy as…” West End boutique hotel, near the Coliseum. The Cuban-inspired fusion cuisine is “expensive”, and even fans are “not sure it’s authentic”, but “the menu always offers something unusual”, and won better ratings this year.

Summary

“The food is a pale reflection of what it used to be” in the ever-more “canteen-like” dining space of this glossy West End boutique-hotel, where the “overpriced” Cuban-Oriental fare has been “lost in translation” – a “fusion which doesn’t fuse”; “good cocktails though”.
