Fantastic service and lovely atmosphere. Desert let it down though. I chose chocolate fondant which is one of my go to deserts. This one was dry and overcooked. Did not have the met in your mouth factor at all. A shame because everything else I had (oysters and chicken) was nice. But desert is usually the main event for me.

As we discovered, the menu here has changed so anyone who loved the old style of sharing plates and flavoursome South American style food may be disappointed. Other than the padron peppers, the dishes we tried were bland. Even the steak, which is expensive, was average quality and sauces tasteless. Service was good and cocktails ok but unfortunately the overall offering has deteriorated.

The restaurant was absolutely lovely. It looked very well decorated.
Food was if a high standard as were the waiting staff.
A little on the pricey side, but to be expected due to location.
Didn’t really like our seat as we were right next to another couple that were constantly bickering at each other.
As a whole it was a great evening.

Vistied Isabel for a birthday treat lunch. Service was friendly and relaxed. Decor was stunning, each bathroom was decorated individually.
Staff were very knowledgeable and food was delicious. So much attention to detail it was worth the cost for the overall experience.

I did enjoy dining here. However the only negative I have is that they need to improve on their social distancing. The tables are extremely close to each other, I had to ask them to separate the tables more because I felt very uncomfortable. I understand that it’s a hard time for businesses but at the same time you need to look out for the well-being of your customers and follow the guidelines. Other than that the service was amazing and the food was good. I would say rather on the expensive side for what you get.

When we arrived we were told we had our table (for 2) for 2 hours.
We were seated and given the menu and cocktail list. When the server came over for our order we asked for the wine list. Twenty minutes after first seating out food and drink order was taken. The starter arrived at the same time as our aperitif.
The main course arrived about 5 mins after the starter and we were done within the hour.
As well as feeling rushed we did not feel well protected. Whilst our temperature was taken at the door, the staff didn’t wear masks and the tables were close together. Whilst the food was good I wish we had left.
