What a pleasant surprise. This exceeded all expectations from the moment we stepped through the door. The staff were very professional, without being cold and injected personality into their service. Any of our questions about the wine or food was met with enthusiasm and we really felt like they cared about giving us a top notch experience. The food was equally as impressive, perfectly timed and some of the best I have had in London. I will definitely be returning and is well worth the money.

We had a lovely evening here on Monday - the staff were delightful, obviously very proud of working here, had all of the answers to our questions and were attentive without being overbearing. The brioche smoked salmon starter was light and full of flavour and the snails were the best my husband had ever had - served out of their shells with a parsnip sauce (I think) but whatever it was it was delicious. The 'Welsh charcuterie' was indeed fantastic, especially the air dried lamb. All in all a lovely evening with exciting French food and excellent service - we will be back!
