We came across this restaurant almost by accident and when we phoned (about 5.30) we managed to get a table with about half an hours notice provided we could leave by 8 pm (they had a huge party planned). The decor was simple and the whole place quite authentic looking. There was a very ‘buzzy’ feel in he bar area as you go in and as we did go relatively early It wasn't very busy in the downstairs area, which is very light and bright with whitewashed walls and subtle lighting but the ambiance was really very chilled and the service impeccable.
We ordered the set menu, well we ordered two set menus actually because we couldn't decide and it came within about 5 minutes. There was a lot of fish in the first part (not ideal if you can't stand fish) but everything was cooked freshly and presented beautifully. Our waiter was lovely and couldn't do enough for us, although I did order a ‘surprise’ bottle of champagne for my friend and he wandered over and asked my friend, who the surprise was for, if she was ready for her champagne. Luckily though she did see the funny side and so did the waiter, when he realised what he had done. BRILLIANT MEAL.
If you find yourself in Green Park or nearby and want a lovely meal you couldn't do any better than choose this restaurant. We thought it was excellent value for money and couldn't fault it at all.
