Unsurpassed... an exquisite dining and wine exploration experience. A private sommelier is available for wine pairings with the chef's tasting menu. The staff gives impeccable service and the decor is beautiful. Doesn't get any better.

There is only one menu with just 4 or 5 choices for each course. This is the menu for both guests and those who are only dining there.

The graceful setting, with rich, panelled walls and twinkling Waterford Crystal chandeliers bestows a grand sense of occasion. Our resident pianist plays softly in the background while you relax and enjoy exceptional dishes from the kitchen of acclaimed Chef Philippe Farineau, recently awarded two rosettes by the AA Hospitality Awards, combined with much loved recipes of Beatrice Tollman and complemented by a fine selection of wines from Chief Sommelier, Robert Bowe.
