My favourite restaurant in town! Great for a star spot too. Simple English fare but in a beautiful setting.

The meal was ok but the room was the star. We had a couple of very average schnitzels - a bit on the overcooked side. I had started with snails, which I usually order if they are on the menu. These tasted very good but,...More

Considering the prices that one is expected to pay, the food in comparison to other restaurants of similar stature was relatively average. The veal schnitzel was bland at best, and I must say I've had far more succulent, flavoursome versions in small family run restaurants...More

I would like to give this restaurant 5* but whilst the food was very good and we were warmly welcomed on entry, the duty manager at 7pm on a Sunday exuded an unpleasant arrogance. The restaurant has a well deserved reputation but, on their own...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

Hi, we thought the portions were perfect for us as two ladies. I'm afraid I could'nt comment about splitting an order. Just had an amazing time and were so looked after.
