Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Fine dining restaurant that features a very fancy 12-course degustation menu. It’s not cheap, but is well worth a splurge for a special occasion.

Food and art go hand in hand at this fine dining restaurant, where the walls have been treated as canvases for creative types to let their imaginations run wild. Quirky in the truest sense of the word, its unusual name is inspired by The Wizard Of Oz, and refers to chef Michael O’Hare. He and his team have been brought out from behind the curtain of the kitchen to whip up their feasts in the dining room, so patrons can see their mind-boggling meals take shape.

At £65 a head, the 12-course degustation menu isn’t the cheapest dinner you’ll have in the city, but it is one of the best. Each dish is composed of a number of unusual ingredients, produced using a multitude of culinary techniques and served on beautiful tableware. It’s a place where your cutlery is served in a presentation box and each dish is brought out by the chef who made it. A destination restaurant that’s truly worth a visit.
