your comments review this restaurant and win a bottle of champagne
Came a cropper when I thought the offer was for lunchtime but turned out it was not. Two courses, drink each and £60 so not too silly.
Disappointed with the waiter's reaction when I clearly thought there was an offer. He simply and curtly dismissed without sugaring the pill.
Service was no more than adequate - the staff were clearly flustered and rushed but not inefficient.
The razor clams starter was over-seasoned for such a subtle meat. The samphire was a surprise and unfortunate addition to the plate since it was not in menu description and it was rather stringy. The risotto main was plentiful and perfectly cooked and presented.
My dining partner devoured his burger with relish (in both senses) and is a regular. He rates the venue so I was probably being over-critical and unlucky.
The dining area with the opening onto the pavement is sophisticated without pretention. On a warm early autumn evening the vista onto the verdant square was virtually Parisian. Shame the food and service did not quite match.
