A Rather Unusual Chinaman
Sunday, August 07, 2011 - The whole roasted, spatchcocked pigeon was the best piece of pigeon I have ever eaten. The slight smoky char, the perfectly cooked pink gamy meat, all finished off with exemplary seasoning, bringing all the flavours out...The service was friendly and never overbearing, the food was mostly superb, and with a couple of glasses of wine and good company, even at 85 pounds a head, I think it smacks of value. Some people may think the River Cafe is expensive, and it is, nose bleedingly expensive. But my one piece of advice is to save up, and then ignore the prices. Eat and enjoy, and on the whole, you won't regret it.
