I've eaten at Gow's a few times before as it's right next to Liverpool St station and handy to stumble from after a few bottles of vino but my trip there last Wednesday night was the best yet. It's normally pretty quiet in the evening but they have started a new set menu which is obviously drawing in the crowds as it was busy with a lively atmosphere.
2 of us had the set menu which was fantastic value at £19 for 3 courses - food of the same quality and taste as the a la carte. I had grilled sardines with watercress sauce to start which were filleted and tasted great, poached haddock and egg for mains and finished off with a gorgeous chocolate cheesecake.
They do meat and veggie too - my fiend had confit duck leg.
I cannot praise the meal enough, and we had a couple of lovely bottles of wine recommended by the waiter, who was a star all evening and made us feel very welcome (even though we were dawdling over coffee).
To pay the money we did for such excellent food in the City is a bargain and this is one restaurant I would recommend to anyone.
