High hopes for our last night in Africa, after 5 weeks touring. We hoped for a really good steak dinner. We chose a prime rib, but it was rather tough. Reasonably tasty with the peppercorn cooking, but not even close to the best we have...More

Celebrated a birthday dinner with friends at Pigalle Melrose Arch. Food was excellent and service was great. A good variety on the fine dining menu (Seafood, Meat and Poultry). A good range of wines are also available.

The décor is delightful, the staff efficient and service is superb. As I was here with a tour group, it was a fixed menu but unfortunately I selected the Portuguese Steak entrée and was disappointed. The crème brulee does get high marks, as does the...More

Thank you @TravelingWoman001 for your review. The Portuguese steak is cooked in a traditional Portuguese style flavour so perhaps not for everyone's palate. I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the rest of your food as well as the staff and service. Next time...More
