We had the degustation menu (again!) and it never fails to amaze. The venison tartare is the best I've ever tasted, life-changing! This time we saved enough space to demolish the cheese course too, stunning.

Top quality restaurant. Characteristic location (i.e. a bunker! therefore some darkness comes with it). Chef cuisine. Definitely recommended.

Excellent food with good service. We had the lamb and pork belly and couldn't fault these meals, very good portion sizes - delicious! Highly recommended and will return

I would describe this restaurant as 'cosy and unique'. The bunker has a limited seating capacity, being such a small space, and thus relies on 'turnover' to survive. The walls, and part of the ceiling are wood paneling, along with a small bar section. There is a small fire place in the centre of the restaurant, which added to the ambience. The service was friendly, professional, and attentive. The waiter explained each dish as he placed it in front of you. The food was well presented. I had the fillet steak which just melted in my mouth. My friend had the lamb dish, which he reported to be tender and delicious. The dessert menu did not tempt us, and perhaps they may like to review the selections offered. We decided to opt for the cheesed board. Overall, I give it a 'very satisfactory' rating.
