We went for the Valentine's Night set menu.The food was great and we had no complaints - But... When we arrived the waiter insisted on putting us on a table that was in the main thoroughfare, even though the place was empty. We asked if we could have a table nearby and after consultation with the manager the waiter eventually allowed us to move. Service was very slow - 6 course tasting menu took from 8.00 pm to 10.45 and even then we skipped coffee. The aircon drones on and it was freezing and although we asked 5 times for it to be turned off we were told they had aslready put the heating on. The woman next to me was wearing her partner's suit jacket - it was so cold! Great food but Mr Ribband needs to sort out the front of house - this was bad.

This is a gem, particularly in Holloway Road and the northern end of Upper Street area. Pleanty of space between tables, attentive but not invasive service and such pride in their country and its traditions. The food was great, and great value. We will be back soon!
