My favourite restaurant in North London. It's the nearest good restaurant to where we live in Enfield. The food is always well cooked and the menu is always interesting and has a wide range of dishes to cover all tastes. I've never been disappointed. It's also been enhanced by Waltham Forest's decision to close Orford Road to motor traffic.

I came for a birthday dinner with a few friends. Great food and cocktails - the halloumi fries, duck parpadelle and the vanilla espresso martini were the favourites. Always a lovely atmosphere. We all had a good night. Thanks!

Food here was fine, but nothing to write home about - while the pork belly with cabbage, apples and mash, was delicious, the fried chicken sandwich had way too much going on, and was lost with the heavy slaw dressing (quite a shame really); the fried potatoes were not particularly interesting, and the halloumi fries again had way too much going on. Halloumi is flavourful in and of itself so a lot was lost with the yoghurt (?) dressing and vinegar substance at the bottom. This is all well and fine, but what really tarnished the experience was the poor service all around. Although we had booked a table, the restaurant was by no means full - nevertheless, we were placed all the way at the back of the restaurant near high-chairs and the entrance to the loos. Looking around my dining partner and I would have loved to sit near the front on one of the tables with poufs. The table was not set properly (had to ask twice for a second water glass, and when it didn't come I got up and got it myself); had to flag the waiter (who to be honest we weren't sure even was, as different people kept bringing our dishes) after about 15-20 minutes to order; and again flag them down at the end of the meal to not only get the bill, but to pay as well (I ultimately went up to the till as we were so sick of waiting). When I raised the issue of poor service the host, while apologetic, did nothing to reverse this (eg send drinks, dessert, comp. a dish). A few friends have already asked me how the meal/place was, as everyone had only good things, and I flat out said, not worth it. Such a pity as had been looking forward!

Food was delicious (I had the hake risotto and my friend had the bbq clereriac) and service was good. Always bustling in there, just a little cold when people started to go into the garden. Not unexpected London prices - £40 was slightly dear considering we had a soft drink each and only 1 course.

I didn’t find the service or atmosphere welcoming at all. It was busy and it was clear the staff were working hard however it wasn’t a friendly atmosphere to be in.

Lower rating on value for money just because the menu is a little on the expensive side but the restaurant is great for a special occasion. Thanks also for doing the candle in ice cream for my partner’s birthday - plan was almost foiled when she said she didn’t want dessert but you guys came though for me!

What a delightful evening. The service was efficient, very jolly yet unobtrusive. All the food we ordered was full of flavour with little surprises. But, the Rum baba was exceptional. The cake could almost float away it was so light.
