    Best view in West London. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff are attentive and welcoming. The lunch was expensive but we both felt it was really worth it. Well done

    Food and presentation excellent. Ambience excellent. As it was a nice day we chose to sit outdoors so enjoyed the view of the lake and the variety of people traffic.

    This has got to be the best view in London. Outside on the terrace with the Palm House across the pond. World renowned trees and plants all around. Food good. Happy to pay the price. Perfect!

    We greatly enjoyed the hake, which was well-cooked and supported by finely sliced tasty pommes. Samphire was a particularly welcome addition to the dish.

    The food and service were very good and the lovely decor in the revamped restaurant much appreciated. A lovely touch from the staff was the piece of cake with a candle for the birthday girl.
