We dined at 8.30 on a Saturday night and had pre drinks in the sister restaurant next door. We opted for the taster menu of 8 courses and a bottle of Champagne. We have eaten in many of London's top restaurants and this place deserves to be considered one of the best yet. The food was delicious, the service was perfect and the ambiance was relaxed yet perfect for the sea food offered.

Reasonable food. The fish soup was wonderful. The fresh fish was average - Dover Sole served off the bone and swimming in butter. While reasonably good, I'd have expected better at this price. The wait staff were attentive and helpful, and the owner sat with us for a while, which was good. Nevertheless, the overall impression was of a restaurant that thinks a bit too highly of itself.
