    Right near the river and just sublime in the evenings for a walk after a nice meal.

    Celebramos Nochebuena allí, ambiente tranquilo y acogedor. La comida estaba muy rica si bien no es la comida que como española esperaba para esa noche. Relación calidad precio muy buena

    I have this exquisite restaurant several times because of the variety of the dishes and the ambiance.I decided to surprise my friend and decided to take her.She loved it immediately,and repeated her delight during the visit. We both had the Prawn dishes and shared it between ourselves.The dishes were to die for. This was followed by the Mongologian Lamb and the Lamb Chop. The presentation,quality of the food was delicious. My friend decided that she will definitely visit for her milestone birthday in a couple of month Very pleasant staff. My favourite restaurant and the view was breathtaking. Thanks for a lovely evening.

    The restaurant could do with a face lift and some tlc. It felt like an old hall and the food tasted as if it had been warmed up in a microwave. Such a shame because thee location is lovely and it has so much potential.

    I wanted to surprise my lady friend by booking Rafayel for her birthday dinner. She was most impressed with the location,view, food and the staff. I am very happy that she enjoyed the time we spent at the restaurant. We'll be back

    We arrived there and they had a private party on and said they had no booking for us! Very unhappy! We had to find another restaurant elsewhere!

    Food was good value. Nice view of the river. But a lot of work going on and there were few staff and very few staff in the restaurant area (only one). We were only served two cake portions instead of three for three people. But the member of staff was excellent and it was all good value for money and the view was nice so we may return in the summer.

    Lovely restaurant; with beautiful decor. I went for lunch and the food was absolutely delicious without exaggeration. Perfect portions for starter, main and dessert with Lovely presentation. It actually made my day as I hadn't been before and didn't know what to expect. There were beautiful art pieces and a flower wall which adds to the overall vibrance of the place; even the bathroom was nice (I'm an interior designer so I can be picky).. honestly, I'm coming back in the evening next time just for the ambiance and the Perfect night view of the Thames.

    We love this resaurant, but had never eaten there during the evening. We enjoyed live music, superb chilli prawns, wonderful location by the Thames that also gave views to Battersea heliport. Great ambiance, and good mix of clientele too.

    This restaurant was such a lovely surprise. A sunny day by the river and delicious food washed down with French champagne, what more could one ask for. Go and enjoy!

    A great experience on the whole, I would visit again. The food was tasty and the Riverside atmosphere and music made the evening relaxing and fun. A great place to hang out.

    You really cannot beat the views of the River Thames from the restaurant! I would definitely recommend ordering the chicken tikka masala and garlic naan bread, it was simply amazing. The owner was really kind and welcoming as well.

    Booked a table and turned up but they had no spaces available, don’t even bother! Staff were very unorganised and didn’t seem to be serving people as lots were waiting.

    Great location. Right on the river, has heaters as well in the covered area. Not great service, completely forgot to bring us our drinks order and then charged us for them! Food average. Generally felt disorganised. Would go back but just for drinks
