what the critics say

Telegraph

Matthew Norman - 3.5/5

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 'This is unbelievable,' enthused Frank of his roasted Norwegian halibut fillet with langoustine dumplings, a truffly cassoulet and sauce bisque. 'Firm, fresh, crispy skin, fantastic flavour. Wonderful. I really love my fish, and can't understand how I'd never heard of this place.' The ref had the wild fillet of Cornish sea bass cooked in basil oil, with barigoule sauce, fennel compote and tapenade. 'There are loads of notes going on here, all glorious.'...We settled the bill and left agreeing that One-O-One needs money spent on its decor and staffing levels, and then someone to promote it.

Went here (01/11/12) to experience the cooking of Pascal Proyart, we stumped for the terre et mer tasting menu and wine matching, what a great time, the food is spot on and definitely not "tasting" size that I have encountered before, they are full on starter/brunch size portions! Needless to say, I couldn't manage all my dessert and couldn't handle cheese, which looked fantastic.

The dining area was fairly quiet, I can't think why with this level of cooking. One minor point, the sommelier, although very efficient and knowledgeable, couldn't pour the same amount of tasting wine into mine or my friends glasses! Something that we found highly amusing. Also, a request for peppermint tea yielded a twinings peppermint tea bag in a teapot! At this level, thats a no no.

Even so, I highly recommend this restaurant, a la carte next time!

Read good things about the food so decided to give it a try. Booked for 9pm, and turned up around 9.15 pm on a Saturday evening, and only about 5/6 tables were occupied. Since I had read that the place is not too busy despite the good food, I was not worried.

Starter was a crab risotto and tuna tartare with softshell crab, mains were a seabass and dover sole. Everything was very good, taste and presentation wise. Clear to see that the chef puts in a lot of care and effort into each dish. Could not believe the place was not more popular, but it seems to have gotten recognition from some restaurant guides/critics.

Service was discreet, prompt and professional. Atmosphere a little stuffy/formal and quiet but probably due to the emptiness of the place (by 10 30pm we were the last ones there). Prices on the high side but given the location and quality that was expected, so no surprises (except £6 for a bottle of highland still water!). Highly recommended.

Delicious- as always!

Started with the Organic Salmon-Beetroot cured on Toasted Brioche, King Crab, Egg and Endives-Granny Smith Salad. This was delicious- the poached egg and crab creating a delightful emulsion to accompany the salmon.

Had a wonderfully rich scallop dish with mushroom fricasee and finished with a Ray fillet with Brown Caper Butter and Parsley, truffle Potato Mousseline and Crispy Pork Belly. The ray was very delicate and the whole dish exploded with flavour- the little salty capers proving a great foil to the delicate ray.

Service faultless- One-O-One richly deserved the 6th best restaurant in the UK award that it recently received through Hardens and the Sunday Times. Cannot wait to go back!
