Decided to try this as the menu appealed to us - mezze. I was dubious as I've been disappointed before at other restaurants. We were the first diners for evening service and received a warm welcome by an experienced maitre d' who excelled at his...More

very concept of global time was established at Royal
Observatory, just one of several buildings of
architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole
