My daughter and I were strolling in the area looking for dinner b4 seeing American in Paris. Special advertised incl salad and glass of wine. Live pianist, friendly service, good, fair priced meal for these American tourists. Wished we had room for dessert.

Overpriced and both my wife's and my meal were sub-average at best. We must have gotten their off meals. One visit was quite enough!

We found it overpriced salty (very) microwaved food. Service was excellent though, and the piano playing was a nice touch. Won't be going here again. I can go to Sainsbury's and get a better meal out of the freezer. Sorry but that's how we felt.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
