I booked online for a Tuesday evening. I was put on Stand-by. And that was it. There was no further contact. Absolutely nothing. It would appear that unless you're prepared to dine before 5.30, a booking cannot be made.
This was to be a special evening for our business, but we were forced to go elsewhere because a total lack of communication. Who knew Tuesday nights were SO busy?

We booked a table on the balcony on a warm and balmy night in February. Great for people watching!

We started with cocktails - try the Millionaire's Mojito, it's delicious.

The menu is extensive and lends itself to sharing and we had most things covered between us. The rib of beef was a stand-out, but nothing disappointed and was bursting with flavour. Desserts were amazing - take a look at the photo.

Service was excellent - friendly and efficient.

We finished up the evening with Espresso Martinis. A perfect night.

About 300 pound sterling.

The food was delicious & our waiter was lovely. However the experience was soured a little by the fact the mains were delivered really quickly ... we were still finishing the small plates, didn't have enough space for everything on the table & had not been served our wine. I would recommend only ordering the starters initially & ordering the mains a bit later - just so the food delivery is spread out. Food of this quality shouldn't be served like you are at a fast food restaurant.

This restaurant is perfect for a night out either as a couple or in a group - we enjoyed a drink in the bar first which was buzzing on a warm sunny evening. The ambiance was lovely throughout the evening and the wait staff were excellent - attentive in every way. Would definitely return.

It is fantastic! Staff is knowledgeable, informative and courteous. Menu is outstanding. We purchased a main course, four shareable items and a bottle of wine. A wide variety of meat and seafood items are available. FYI!! iPhone maps does not show the correct location. The entrance way is down an alley near the Bridge of Remembrance NOT on Litchfield St
