The food was good, not brilliant but, as said by others, the portions are tiny. It is hard to see how a Restaurant like Thornton's lost its Michelin stars yet Patrick Guilbaud's retains two. Let me be clear, the restaurant is good but nothing is...More

I´ve only dined at the restaurant once, and then I saw people with everything from suits to denim. It´s fine dining so I will not recommend jeans, but if you must then at least wear dark ones and a shirt. Enjoy your visit :)
