Wow this place has some of the worst decor I have seen in a restaurant for ages. Pretty shocking given the prices and chi chi location. Think sofa cushions from a P&O ferry and bar stools from a 1990s Barrett show home. Add this to...More

I am mystified as to how the previous reviewer could have had such a disappointing dinner one day, and then we had an excellent experience the next. Maybe the restaurant was having a bad day, but all I can say is that we went there...More

Tucked off the Main Street, this excellent restaurant has helpful staff and very tasty food on the menu. Good for all occasions.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

The eating area can be sectioned off I believe and it is an ideal wedding venue. Regrettably the facilities are in a basement down stairs, Hope this helps.

I don't remember seeing a child's menu. That said, we were 4 adults with a late dinner reservation and our biggest concern was that it took almost an hour for wine to be served and then even more time for the martini's... More
