“A gem” of a neighbourhood restaurant tucked away in a quiet courtyard but well-known locally; albeit “short”, the daily-changing menu is “always beautifully done”. The (ex-Castle Hotel) duo behind it, Richard Guest and Cedric Chirrosel, launched fish spot ‘Albatross’, a minute away in Riverside Place, in summer 2018.
