One of my favourite restaurants in Mayfair. My guests who were there for the first time were impressed too. Food, decor, service and overall experience are 5 stars.

Food so so, staff on this occasion were lovely (reception team especially) and the atmosphere was chilled but lively. Went back the next night and initially all was lovely. We sat at the bar, the bar tender had no wine knowledge as he wasn’t a sommelier so couldn’t answer our questions (didn’t offer to ask another staff member for us) and later in the eve when we asked if we could order some food we were given menus and we placed an order but about 15 mins later a manager came to us and said he had cancelled the order as there was a private party and they could not accommodate us. When I saw the restaurant manager I said this to him because it wasn’t a great experience and he said we could order from a smaller set menu that the party were having - why didn’t the first manager say this instead of refusing us food? We looked over it but it all seemed quite a lot for the time of the eve so we decided to move somewhere else. We left at around 10.30pm but would happily have stayed and ordered another bottle of wine. I liked the place so much I brought another friend back with me on this evening but she didn’t have a great experience. Especially when there was a couple beside us eating plates of pasta. Thanks

Nice spot in town and good atmosphere, but the food wasn’t too flight and also lacked imagination. The mark up on wine was even more exaggerated than normal. More of a lunch spot than dinner.

Service was excellent and it’s a lovely place. But £45 steak was way below average. M&S steak tastes better. It was slightly over cooked and majority of the piece was just fat and also quality of the meat was not what you expect from top tier place and for that price. Sides were basic and dry. I will come again but stick with drinks and nibbles as ambience is very nice.

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.

Awful food. No matter how many times I’ve come back I’ve never had a good restaurant experience there. Yes the bar is pretty, but not worth it. Food lack flavour and waiting staff are not welcoming or attentive.

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.
