Yet another satisfying visit. Their complimentary butternut soup and roll are always nice. The prawns are divine, and the choc accompanying the ice cream it's just the best. I always ask for extra sauce. The whole place is luxury, and the prices are accordingly so. The waiters are attentive, and clean the prawn shell dish as soon as it's half... More

Amazing oysters and amazing service. Noisy during the lunchtime weekends as there are events in the square. But other than that, a great restaurant

I was taken to this restaurant by work friends living in the city. They were huge fans and I can see why. From the moment we walked in we were welcomed and offered drinks while we waited for a table. We were seated quickly and our server was immediately at hand with a drinks menu. The wine list was filled... More

I took a business partner here for dinner. As other Pigalle "branches" this one is also outstanding. The service is very good and done by very knowledgeable and friendly staff. I will go back at any time. It is quite pricy though, but so are all restaurants that I visited in Melrose Arch.

Besides our table of 4 there was only one other table during lunch time. No excuse for bad service then. The service was in fact a bit slack. Our waiter forgot to give someone at our table a plate, another one didn't get a knife and fork, and another one no serviette! The air conditioner didn't work. They opened a... More

We were with a group. Fish was OK, service slow, not too many customers eating there. We dined, and I had higher expectations.
