The plan to ‘grab a meal’ at a decent place near the Academy pre-show, turned out to be the most wonderful suprise for us. A corner table in the cosy top floor of Upstairs was the perfect spot for us – we were first presented with a perfectly put together Aperitif list – I could not resist the Cancun Mojito – a spicy (nutment and cinammon) take on a whisky sour which was superb – so much so that my usual whisky-free drinking partner who had a try, was full of praises. The gradvalax starter was served with the most delectable, light “crisp-like” flavoured light cracker – beautifully presented and melt-in-mouth goodness. This was followed by a sea-bass fillet with prawn consomme – fresh and delectable. The flavours in everything we consumed (including the amuse bouche) was perfectly balanced and divine. Ambient lighting with a mix of music which included beats from Stéphane Pompougnac's Costes albums, washed down by some very good value wine selections, made the whole experience a wonderful treat. Service was smashing and attentive. Our only regret was not having enough time to have desert – we will be back for the seven course tasting menu!
