I was half expecting this place to empty as the local theatres got going. The last time I went it was a sunday and it was pretty quiet early doors. However, the vast majority were there for the evening and there was a great buzz in what is an elegant and nicely lit room with dimmed lamps and candles. The food was OK/good – there is little complicated coming out of the kitchen here but what does arrive is tasty and nicely presented. Actually my Wiener Schnitzel was 9/10 (I spend much time in Germany/Austria and feel I can judge this) although beware the spatchcock poussin comes with an ‘unadvertised’ anchovied topping ..not good if you can't eat anchovies ! Service is efficient, friendly and they did particularly well to find some unscripted Cranberry Sauce on the side with my Wiener (a must !) Above all, however, the place is very expensive. £75 a head including service for 2 courses 2 bottles of wine and pre-dinner drinks for 4 people inc tap water thru dinner! You can get the same meal and and even better Schnitzel in Berlin for €30 each ! London has gone mad !
