OK. I am a foodie and my expectations were high. And I was not impressed. The place is overpriced and the food is very average. We had the 6 courses which mainly consisted of onions, potatoes, pumpkin and celeriac. All very inexpensive ingredients... To charge £55 for a set meal of the cheapest ingredients seems a bit, well, ambitious. Of the six courses there was only one which included meat or fish. Bread was considered a course of its own which I found unusual. The amuse bouche were so unspectacular, I can't even remember them. I can't give them more than one star out of five for their food. They are also trying too hard which really got on my nerves. The pot with a duck which was steamed over hay and herbs and some other stuff was presented to us at the table in its oven dish. I guess this was supposed to impress us or enhance our dining experience but we just found it hilarious. OK the chef is 27 or something but this place is so far away from the wonderful Viajante or the ever impressive Chez Bruce as London is from Tokyo. Won't go again.

Went for dinner here with friends. It is a beautiful restaurant, great wine selection and some of the courses on the tasting menu were really excellent - like the lemon dessert. However a few items were just not up to scratch. The real issue here is that unlike most tasting menu's in London the portion size is just not adequate - at £75pp not including drinks or service it is such a shame you leave hungry. Slightly larger portions and a few more hit dishes and it would have got more stars!
