I lunched at Murano on a Saturday with a friend, for his birthday. It’s a beautiful room, with well-spaced tables and fantastic lighting. We sat at the top of the restaurant, with a view of the kitchen through a large window – when we arrived, they apologised to us for sitting us there, but we thought it one of the best tables – not least because we could see that Angela Hartnett was cooking that day, which we got very over-excited about.
And we were right to be. It isn’t often you have a faultless dining experience, but this was truly it. The food was absolutely sublime – in particular the quail raviolo that I had as a starter. The little extra touches – the arancini and delicious salami that came before the first course; the intensely flavoured sorbets that came before pudding (special mention for the basil one); and the fantastic breads, all meant that this excelled any of the other Michelin starred restaurants I've eaten in in London – including the Square, which has been my favourite for some years.
The service was very charming and I'd also like to specially commend the Sommelier, who gave us a great recommendation for a white, which was exactly the same price as the one we told him we were thinking of – a very tactful response, we thought.
I’ll definitely be going back.
