Visited this restaurant with my elderly outlaws. Despite it being a bit of a walk from the tube station (worth bearing in mind if you or your relatives find mobility a challenge), once seated the restaurant made us very welcome. Whilst the tables were quite...More

Quite a nice restaurant offering limited choices that are nicely cooked. Perfect service and atmosphere. Not so impressed by the desserts but the mains were delicious, especially the octopus.

The octopus. Wow. A sensational dish. The wines were also very good. The service and ambience was also spot on. No downsides - 5 star dining.

Very nice restaurant with perfect service and cozy ambiente. We had the clams as appetizer and the Risotto with Scampis and the L-style octopus afterwards. It came along with a great white wine.

I agree with the reviewers on top. The restaurant is fairly small but on my visit, I noticed behind me a large group (approximately 10 people) seated at tables which had been joined together. I would suggest giving them a... More
