Good atmosphere, reasonable prices, very central location -- can't go wrong for lunch or dinner. We visited with relatives from out of town after a concert at St Martin in the Fields and had a great meal. Recommend the Monbazillac dessert wine.

Busy, perfectly located restaurant for several theatres. Excellent set menu at a very reasonable price. A la carte reasonable too. Tasty food and service with a smile. Booking essential.

Just go to the restaurant website and use the 'Make a reservation' facility. If it were me I would book for 6pm. That gives ample time for a two-course pre-theatre meal.
