Everything was very well organized, the decoration is elegant, food was very good. I rated 9 because de cocktail wasn’t was I expected. Mojito with sparkling water was…surprising but not my taste. Thank you

The overall experience was very good. We have appreciated the really good atmosphere and decoration. We nevertheless noticed that the dress code was not enforced. It's not a big problem but somehow it is impacting the overall impression one has when having a dinner or lunch.

The décor is gorgeous. Two of us sat at a table for 4, which subtracted from the intimacy a bit, though I do see why we were seated there. It's a nice spot. The seating was low for the table, and unless you pull the table way in, it's too far away from the bench (I'm not short) - I had to switch places to a chair rather than a bench and sit on a big cushion so the table wasn't chest height. Need to be able to lean in without my chin resting on the table! The starter I had was DIVINE, the main (lamb) was cooked to perfection, but I kind of wished it was just a straight up roast lamb with roasties and a rich gravy! It needed more sauce - the harissa paste and yoghurt were not enough and couscous is always quite dry. The sticky toffee pudding was served almost cold, not much sauce, and was a little dense inside. I understand if they're frozen and stored they might not be perfect when they are "reanimated", but sticky toffee pudding needs to be super light, hot and very saucy! I asked for more treacle stuff but I don't think server heard me. I did send it back to be warmed up a bit. I'm pointing out flaws, because that is possibly the feedback you're most interested in? But overall, the place is stunning, the meal was delicious and service outstanding. Will certainly be back!
