What can I say about Sienna? Possibly the best meal I've ever eaten. My wife and I visited for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is cosy with only 14 covers but don't let that put you off. We were welcomed by...More

Visited Sienna with three friends and we love this restaurant. It's our second visit and the food was even more divine. We chose the four course tasting menu this time. I hesitated as one of the dishes contained a meat that I don't eat, but...More

A warm, friendly welcome to this small restaurant. The four course tasting menu was simply delicious (the mackerel came with caviar!) and the matched wines worked really well. Its Michelin listing is well deserved. The service was efficient and unobtrusive and made for a very...More

Easter Sunday lunch. Our first visit since chef and patron Marcus, took over. Beautifully balanced, perfectly cooked and exquisitely flavoured meal. The smoked artichoke in our halibut main course was a revelation, as was the delicate flavor with the ham hock starter. This is definitely...More

Party of 4 and had the 6 course tasting menu, food was absolutely delicious, lots of interesting flavours and combinations and the service was perfect. Just as good as any Michelin star restaurant I have been to, can't recommend highly enough!

This little restaurant with only 14 covers sits unassumingly in the middle of Dorchester. However if you get past the front door the food is a delight! There are options for 4,6 or 8 course tasting menus. Our group of 6 opted for the 6...More

As retirees from London, the one thing we really miss is fine dining - which is not to say that Dorset lacks eating opportunities just that we yearn for something local of the standard and panache of our old haunt Chez Bruce. Dorchester is a...More
