Staff here must be programmed to please. A heart-warming experience was had from the time I picked up the phone to reserve a table until the time we had lunched and were last to leave at 4.30p.m. I don’t know how to begin to describe the quirky décor of the dining area. To me it appeared that two or more people with contrasting styles compromised on the design – but not elsewhere. However, the ambience and service could not be bettered. Had the food not been so good, then we would still have relaxed and enjoyed the comfort of the room and the generosity of service. A very busy Wednesday lunch spoke volumes. If you don’t like detail, then give this place a miss because the food is intricate both in terms flavour and appearance. Oodles of style and substance is delivered from sweetbreads with candied walnuts to delicately spiced seafood. Having enjoyed starter so much I felt quite confident that my main would deliver – lamb is an unusual choice for me and even more so for the fact that it was billed as ‘Breast of lamb’ given that I have a big aversion to lamb fat, but it was the ‘crispy’ description that gave me the courage to go for it. Lamb done 3 ways (small canon slice included) was divine. Our Portuguese wine choice from a reasonable spectrum of internationals was another bonus. Desserts and petit-fours impressed too……what more need I say?
