This time I had a really really really good dinner in London. People from around took me here. Immediately I liked the big long table where all the clients were sit down. Then, a waitress took care of us recommended wine and food. To sum...More

Initially the food was excellent, but the number of small dishes confused the complex taste of each dish - a mouthful of hake, then goat on lentils, then back to the veggie, then hake.Also a bit hungry with the small portions so had to reorder....More

It was very hard to find the restaurant because the name is not lit up and the letters are somewhat obscure and not a very "in your eyes" colour. The front deli reception area was very constrained and the staff had a very unfriendly cold...More
