Food was, as usual, fantastic; and my guests were suitably educated and entertained by the tasting tutor. A lovely evening.

The tasting menu with the whisky pairings is a fun and unique way of executing a tasting menu. The pairings were overall very good, with some better than others. Food was well-executed, but be prepared for most of the dishes to be cold dishes. Service was fine, but not as attentive as one would expect for the style of restaurant and price.

What a fantastic Host, knowledge and personality. Many of our large party were not that enthusiastic about the idea, as they are beer drinkers. But it was them who wouldn't let Olaf go after 2 hours, more and more questions!

Excellent service. Pre-theatre menu reasonably priced, food quality excellent. A good addition to the pre-theatre menu would be a house wine selection at a cheaper price point. Will definitely return.

We had a 3 dram whisky tasting. We asked the Ambassador not to be too technical and to keep it light and he did. Perfect!

We had the Library for a private dinner, food was great, Whisky and drinks too. The servers were helpful and well informed. Only issue is the door needed to be closed to keep the noise down from the lift bringing food up from the kitchen. This is awkward as door does not close properly.

Small room for 8 was very pleasant for discussion but several guests thought the acoustics were poor.
