Great food and great service. The fillet steak was very good and easy to eat. The carpaccio was delicious. Most importantly you did not feel heavy afterwards.

I have to say this was honestly the best steak I have EVER eaten so far in a London restaurant. My partner who loves steak ordered everything and I was not disappointed. We ordered the Ancho a la pimienta which is the rib eye steak...More

I was on my own in London as my husband was in hospital. I popped into the restaurant and ordered a salt-free meal of fillet steak. Unfortunately the first steak came with salt but the staff were so nice and polite (although they must have...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
