I liked everything about this restaurant from the style of cooking, the presentation, the very friendly attentive service, the décor with the myriad of spice-filled (apparently) test tubes suspended from the ceiling which adds a fun element to an otherwise elegant and very comfortable room. Oh and I had better mention the food. The tasting menu attracted attention, which I thought consisted of 5 courses but actually turned out to be 8 with a generous John Dory dish which was not my favourite. Prior to this I was in Lobster Heaven billed as being served with White Olive Oil and I must return just to experience this again. Even my fish and seafood averse partner enjoyed the lobster, so I struggled to even filch some extra succulent pieces from his plate. The 3 canapé reminded me of L'Enclume style (except 4 fewer), with 2 out of the 3 scoring pretty highly. The two desserts were excellent. We opted for a very good bottle of red which equated to the value of a wine flight each. Value? Maybe a bit heavily priced.
