The food, ambience and service was good but low star eating was they gave no time to relax between courses. And didn't wait for both of us to finish before removing the plate from the first finisher. Bill was over £100 for a three course meal and coffee but did include a half bottle of wine and two glasses of... More

Wandering around the quaint little alleys of Hampstead we came across this delightful little restaurant. Small menu but delicious sounding dishes. That was last week and we returned today for lunch. They have a very reasonable 2 course lunch for £14.95 but I fancied the fillet of Scotch beef with garlic mash, green beans and red wine jus and my... More

Plenty of tables available at this little tucked away place in Hampstead. The service was very pleasant and friendly and the steak tender end excellent so was the lamb stew. Small tables,tablecloths nicely laid but somehow a rather old fashined formal ambience. Surely they could improve that ,make it more cosy and comfortable and the place would be a real... More

The only time I've ever felt compelled to write a review of a restaurant. Andrew, the owner, is a lovely guy who went out of his way to make us feel welcome at every turn. The restaurant itself is cosy and refined without ever feeling contrived or pretentious. It's not a budget restaurant, but the price is very much reflected... More

Food is very good tastewise, as is the atmosphere, but the scallops (means one scallop), and the swordfish comes with veg only and no carb. Wine is nice, but about £17 per half bottle. All bills are done by hand, and the math is incorrect, so do check. Also, it is another restaurant where cover charges, water and service charges... More

I have visited this restaurant several times, and been satisfied with the food and service ,however, this time I realized that I should not have been too relaxed by trusting them. When I checked the bill on the following date of dining out I found out that I had been charged £185 for a bottle of red wine although I... More

The cuisine is very good although not especially very French!! Located in a cosy street in Hampstead; you can eat in this proper restaurant for quite cheap ! We go there as a family every time we are in London ! I recommend it
