While the restaurant must be a sea of suits during the week, lunch on a Sunday at Coq D'argent proved to be an incredibly peaceful and relaxing affair. Up on top of 1 Poultry, the Art Deco interior is just as attractive as the views past the alfresco eating areas and rooftops beyond. The menu is creative and unfussy and there's a good choice of dishes; we all had difficulty in making a decision. Cautious of anything involving uncooked meat, I decided to break with tradition and started with the venison tartare. It was lovely and fresh, the richness of the meat set off by the accompanying horseradish cream. All our main dishes had a very favourable response (from the braised venison to the milk fed veal) and the desserts disappeared quickly enough! The food is well-portioned and well-presented and worthy of its price tag ( £30 for 3 courses). Neither could we fault the service and I can only assume that the kitchen must have been undergoing some disaster during the previous reviewer's visit. If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the West End, then this place is definitely worth a visit, particularly as it makes a memorable meal out of Sunday lunch.
