The worst service ever our main courses were brought before we had finished our starters. Then after waiting 10mins the waiter brought the desert menu. Finally main course arrived all shells no clams. Sent back and third time mediocre time lucky

A cool venue with friendly staff and a well presented, if limited menu.

I've driven past the restaurant and have always wanted to try it. And I was not disappointed! The rib eye was so good my husband took forever to finish it as he wanted to savour the taste. We will be back!

This is most certainly the perfect place to eat on a magical sunny day in the park!

I booked a table for four for my dad's birthday. We arrived slightly before the table was booked for and saw the restaurant was busy but there was a table for four in the middle. After mentioning our booking we were told that we would have to wait ten minutes but could wait at the bar. The table for four had chairs crammed at either end to make it a table for six. We waited a few more minutes and were led to a table which was for two or three at a squeeze. Two of us were crammed on one side. I asked to be moved to a bigger table and were told we could move in ten to fifteen minutes. Twenty minutes later we decided enough was enough and left. Poor and off-putting experience left me disappointed and put a dampener on birthday celebrations.

Had a lovely lunch in this amazing setting - and the staff is not only incredibly charming but also knowledgeable and careful (regarding allergies). The food is very nice and classic with interesting twists - but it is the setting makes this place absolutely perfect!

amazing place with great and interesting food. friendly and professional staff, really good wine list and we had incredible cocktails there too. I can recommend for lunch as well as pop in for a drink with friend and definitely family brunch on weekend and than walk in the park or some activities on serpentine river. I've visited few times and will come be back for sure!;)

This is the place that must be on your list "to do" this year! Extraordinary architecture, surrounded by beautiful park, very open and light space. Now food - beautifully presented, unusual and really, really delicious. It's not cheap, but definitely comes with a quality. Also they do some offers. Staff, very helpful and friendly, even with special request. I've been there twice for lunch - quieter time, so great if you want to meet a friend not in a crowded place. Once I had an afternoon tea on weekend, when it is busier obviously, but still really great place!
