This really was good food masquerading as fine dining. When we arrived we were shown to the wrong table. Not a good start.
The menu (fixed price) was not at all extensive, around 5 choices, and I felt expensive. The main course were certainly were heavily focused on fish and certainly bore little resemblance to the overview provided on this site. When I saw the charge of £3.75 for bread, I should have known.
Service was at best average, with everything seeming to fall to the maitre d' to perform. Only one waiter seemed to be knowledgeable about the dishes and the other servers did not seem to know which dish was which. The food was good, although the ballotine of chicken was a little bland, but there was just not enough of it. The portions made nouvelle cuisine look positively generous!!
We then asked for more butter, and had to ask 3 times before it arrived, and had to order more bread to reach some semblance of feeling full.
Finally, when we attempted to order another bottle of wine, we were told that they had only had one bottle of the wine we had chosen and we could not order any more. Surely, I should have been told that when I ordered the first bottle?
In summary, good food, very small portions, average service, limited choice and London prices. I would not in all conscience be able to recommend this restaurant to anyone.
