We'd eaten at Bruno Loubet by accident during it's pre-opening week. The food had been sort of average but we'd been lured back by the great service and the fact that they'd unexpectedly reduced our bill by 50% as the restaurant wasn't officially open. A real result we thought. This time, we went with my investment banker step-son and his barrister girlfriend. The three of them had cocktails to start with, we worked our way through two bottles of over-priced wine, two glasses of dessert wine (very generous measures) and some water. The wine list is difficult as it's expensive with a bottle of Moulin a Vent (Beaujolais) priced at something like £50. Ridiculous. Two of us had three courses, two had two courses. The food was mainly good and well cooked, my starter of beetroot pasta was, I thought, outstanding and my husband's main course of lamb cooked in three different ways was, he claimed, quite delicious. Our waiter was great. He looked and sounded Italian but was, it transpired, Portugeese. Very well informed, good natured and able to answer all of our menu queries. However, at a cost of £170 for two people, we felt that it wasn't great value and that there are other, better places to eat in London at that sort of price. It wouldn't stop us going back as a twosome where we'd be in better control of the alcohol consumption and keep the cost down a bit!
