It's acosmopolitan, buzzing, comfortable brasserie-style restaurant on two levels with a modern European menu that pleases all palates. The ground floor restaurant has big, bright, conservatory-style windows, while the lowerground dining room has soaring ceilings, plenty of natural light, and a pianist to entertain you every evening. The menu includes starter of shellfish boudin with hazelnut and white truffle potatoes and a butter chive sauce, and main course of thyme and honey glazed confit of duck leg onbubble and squeak with a citrus jus, and pudding of praline parfait with banana and rum sauce. The wine list is delightfully heavy on the French side with very interesting contributions from the remainder of the wine-producing planet. Service is reliably good, and that's a pleasure, too.

And it's good for business entertaining, too! Your largish - up to 24 - group can be happily accommodated in the main restaurant, or a private room can be hired to accommodate up to 60 seated or up to 95 standing. The decor is smart and sophisticated with mirrors and warm neutral colours and linen and silver. Canape and buffet menus are available, as well as main meals that include starters like wild mushroom risotto with truffle oil and shaved parmesan, mains like grilled fillet of salmon on roasted Mediterranean vegetables with a tomato and basil dressing,and pud of white and dark chocolate mousse.
