A place firmly positioned for elegant drinks in a well organised and perfect outdoor seating area. Sublime outdoor space for the area. The wine options are varied and many good choices at the upper price points. No hesitation to recommend this for drinks as the main focus. Champagne at £16 a glass is par for the course with local places ranging from £12 to £21 a glass. Pair drinks with a couple small plates before you move to your main dinner or back home. Some food stars on the menu include the two lettuce gem hearts, (single) gyoza and spaghettone. The spaghettone was by far the highlight. Beware it is a single gyoza even though the phrase gyoza is usually used in plural form. The plum sauce also lacked sufficient acidity to cut through the gorgeous slow cooked lamb. Gyoza dough impeccable and chewy. Awesome method. Some of the wraps on the capelleti pasta came out a bit crunchy/uncooked on the wings below Al dente. Some capelleti were cooked well inside and had integrated and some were gritty/powdery/dry inside. Beware the crab consomme is now beetroot at same price and also small for the price point of £21. It felt like a very different chef prepared the spaghettone (perfect) versus the capelleti. Based on the lamb gyoza I would think the ragu cannelloni would be good with parmesan sauce. The consistency of the meat itself in the pork katsu Sando was crunchy (not talking about the crust, the inner meat). Bread pudding taste flop, and easily forgettable. Wasn't keen on the texture as it felt more like a vegan energy bar. But the small size matched the price of £7 so you have to look at it as tapas style desert, just as with £6.50 single gyoza and £9 two lettuce gems. Spaghettone £18, capelleti £21, crisps £5 (fantastic) and homemade bread (nice). Cocoa kombucha did not pair well at all. Cocoa husk and kombucha are both fermented so slight overload and the winey nature of the cocoa husk infused didn't sit well with the taste of the gelato or bread pudding itself. Missing gelato options unless you just like chocolate. The primitivo was passable after it had sat a bit with a reasonable markup approx from £1.50 to £7 a glass. Long wait at entrance of approx 25 mins - although I arrived 20mins late two free tables. Food took approx 1 hour to arrive. Busy for the number of staff so management looking to eek out the most from them. Staff very friendly once they started to relax. This is a place for elegant drinks and snack (although my red wine glass was chipped in the base - no Biggie). Table next to us seemed to return the slow cooked courgette uneaten but assured the waitress they were full and that it was good.

we managed to get a table on the terrace on a beautiful sunny day. Food was superb, an extensive wine list and flawless service. Will definitely go back again for more.

Waited too long for our meal to be served (approx. 1h). They explained the reason was because we had ordered a Rib eye steak for 2 people, which took a lot to be cooked. The steak turned out to be rather a small portion (sufficient even for 1 person) with a very small side dish included and surely didn't require 1h to cook. Nice location...but food needs to be improved...

Please be assured that we put the highest efforts every day to provide the best food and service to all our guests. We aim to continually improve our services through such feedback. Steak size is specified on the menu (500g) as well as our recommendation (for 2 to share) so a guest can make an informed decision.

Terrible service, I have asked for a table near a heater (which was free) only to be told they don’t work- however they did. We arrived with 3 children- and also asked to sit inside near the window- we were told it’s not allowed- however people arriving after us were seated there. That was clearly discriminatory to us. I will not be booking again- although food was great!
