We were off to a show and checked TripAdvisor for somewhere to eat. Number 3 is well deserved for a great start to the evening.
She loved the focaccia that came out. We shared the Boullibaise, which they brought out in separate bowls. Delicious, finely flavoured with rouille like in Marseille. She had the seared scallops entree for middle and I had the fresh fish which was a pan fried groper. Both were delicious and perfectly cooked. We left it up to the waiter for a wine match and he was very knowledgeable with an interesting Vouvray and a Pinot Gris. He also managed to tempt us to share a very enjoyable Tamarillo Creme brûlée, complemented with a glass of Quartz Reef.
We loved our meal which was a great start to a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Will have to book in for next week before the ballet.

Unusual restaurant for a mall, tucked away. Elegant decor, good food with lots of fresh herbs, well presented. Very noisy though when full. Service was only average and I was surprised to be asked if I wished to tip before receiving the bill - surely this should be left to guests to decide.

We booked as a party of 8, with friends over from Wales for the rugby. Busy with a buzzy atmosphere which I like - can't bear places where the sound of cutlery on plates is all you can hear!
Not a huge menu, but this meant that what they had was cooked well. Very friendly staff. We arrived around 7.30 and had the table for the evening and were just about the last to leave. We weren't hurried which added to our leisurely evening.
I would definitely visit again and I would definitely book to avoid disappointment as not the largest restaurant.
The setting is lovely - New Regent Street is a quirky street, with it's own very individual style of architecture. The restaurant is upstairs and they are hoping to convert the downstairs area to a bar.
Enjoy!
