We did the taster menu supported by the wine flight. Every course was fantastic and we are very privileged to have such a beautiful restaurant In our home city. Definitely worth a visit for special occasions. Thank you very much.

Fantastic meal with no issues at all in dealing with one of our party who was a coeliac (gluten free). Food was top class and staff were excellent. Great drink selection in a wonderful location.

My wife treated me to a birthday meal and was a superb experience! Every course was consistent and memorable. Flavour explosions and well presented. Superior in my opinion to some Michelin star awarded restaurants I've eaten at. The staff were formal but pleasant, I loved...the decor and ambience. I'm sure we will be back againMore

This restaurant is amazing, the staff are very pleasant and hard working. The food is exceptional, all locally sourced, seasonal foods. We have eaten in Michelin starred restaurants and can honestly say the food was not as good as what we ate here! The flavours...were delicious, every course was simply divine. We will definitely be returning to try the winter menu.More

We had Sunday lunch at this first class venue. We notified beforehand of specific dietary requirements and our Waiter was well versed in these. The service was excellent as was the delicious food. Such a treat for Hubby's birthday Thank you

On the off chance I enquired if the restaurant could accommodate us at short notice, they were wonderful and said yes if we could eat earlier. We could and I am so glad we did. My husband is vegetarian and his menu was in parts...similar to mine but exceptionally tasty and so well presented. Often an issue for non meat eaters! He doesn’t choose risotto as a first choice however the summer squash and blue cheese one presented to him was the best he has ever tasted and he would definitely have again - praise indeed! The food was exceptional, the service was attentive without being intrusive and the whole evening was wonderful. If I had one complaint it would be its just too far to come back for an evening from Norfolk, but we will try!More

Absolutely fantastic food and service, experienced staff with perfect wine flight. You won't get better than this. The only thing missing is the décor/atmosphere of the restaurant. Otherwise, everything is absolutely perfect. Food is delicious, service is amazing. Highly recommend.

First time for me, partner had been previously for a private event; was a special evening for us so he decided to splurge. We could only get a table at 8:15, months in advance - so that was v promising! On arriving we were greeted...warmly and seated at our table, the decor was relaxed but lovely touches - the little nods to #27 everywhere were fun! The ‘nibbles’ mentioned were significantly more food than we’d anticipated and all so tasty so we knew we were in for a treat. Wine list was great and we had a bottle of red and a glass of champagne to start. Given lots of info and feedback around the menu and options to make slight swaps to accommodate tastes. Every course was phenomenal, attention to detail was on point. Lovely service, relaxed atmosphere and all told reasonable price for the quantity and quality of what we ate and drank. Thank you for everything - the little gift of fudge to take home topped off a wonderful evening!More

Quite simply the best food and dining experience we've ever had. Heaven knows we've been to some great places, but this beat them all hands down. Taster menu and accompanying wines were delicious and perfectly matched. Atmosphere and staff were a delight with a light...yet attentive touch. Overall, sensational.More

Second visit to Portsmouth’s premier restaurant for anniversary dinner. As expected the food was amazing and service excellent. The only thing that detracts from the evening is the managements casual attitude towards the dress code. Felt more like sitting in a McDonald’s than a top...restaurant. People sat in trainers, shorts etc. Otherwise very niceMore

Very good quality tasting menu and wine flight at a reasonable price. Nice atmosphere and excellent service. Not every course was perfect - the hot chocolate pudding lacked texture and the charcoal bread was a bit cloying and stodgy - but overall very good indeed!

Third attempt to visit for special occasion - well worth the wait, and perseverance. Couldn’t find fault with food or service and nice ambience too. Glad we went with the wine package for an extra dimension. Wish we could afford to go every month! Unfortunately...not, but we will be back!More
