“Still ranking as the best overall restaurant in town” for many reporters – Terry Laybourne’s “consistently excellent” flagship – in several guises and at different addresses since 1988, and still one of the most commented-on destinations in town – “delivers every time”, with “exciting and appealing” brasserie-style cuisine and “staff who take a personal interest in customers”. “It’s as good for a business lunch, as an evening dinner or Sunday lunch”.

“Terry Laybourne’s original venture and his best” – this “consistently excellent” city-centre all-rounder remains the most commented-on venue in the City, and many locals’ “preferred choice for every special occasion”. It “reliably produces superb brasserie food, while staff are outstanding and professional” and “though it’s a bit too rammed and noisy to be a relaxing experience, if you like the buzz of a crowded restaurant you won’t be disappointed”.
