Great place for a quick lunch. We had three dishes off the tapas type menu. Value was very good. Food very tasty. Ideal for a light lunch. Good atmosphere. Busy place for lunch time.

This restaurant served the best meal I have eaten since I arrived in London nearly a week ago. The service was next to none.

Today we ate here around midday during a break away in Glasgow. What a lovely place! We were immediately greeted at the door by a lovely young man I believe was called Alistair. He was very smiley and welcoming which was an immediate great start....More

Busy, but service was great . Food and drink were of a good standard . Didn't feel rushed even though they could have refilled the table

Central location with friendly and helpful staff. We sat in the basement in a booth for a late lunch which turned into a champagne afternoon tea. It was beautifully presented and so so tasty

Menu sounds good but we were a party of six and chose six individual dishes but each meal was worse than dreadful, definitely the worst meal we have ever been served along with the most awful service.
