A True Passion for Food
The staff are so passionate about the restaurant and the food, which is always such a good sign. Recommendations on what to try really came from the heart and they took great delight in explaining how the chef cooks certain meals in specific ways to get the most flavour out of them. It really added to the experience.
Sipping on our Aperol Spritz’s, we decided to take the waiter’s recommendation and try the Scallops to start and the Pan Fried Goats Cheese with Mixed Peppers. These gorgeous round pieces of fish literally melted in my mouth and were seasoned to perfection. They tasted great with the extremely soft mash served underneath.
The generous serving of Goats Cheese was so rich and creamy – a cheese lover’s delight! As Goats Cheese can be a bit much on its own, this restaurant really hit the balance with the roasted mixed peppers to accompany it. A delicious and flavoursome dish, not to mention beautifully presented!
For Mains, we had Baby Ravioli filled with Cheese Fondue and Truffle with Cream of Porcini Mushrooms. Another cheese lover’s delight, especially when parmesan was grated on top as an extra. This was a very rich meal but cheese and pasta are two of my favourite things so I thoroughly enjoyed it. We also had Grilled Beef “tagliata” with Sautéed Potatoes, black Olives and Roasted Peppers. The beef was cooked medium-rare and was so tender, succulent and juicy.
One of my pet hates when ordering ice cream or sorbet is that when it arrives on your table it is already half-melted. We opted for some refreshing Lemon Sorbet which was so light and flavoursome. Another recommendation from our waiter was the Tiramisu so we had to give this a try as well. It was a perfect blend of crunchy chocolate shell with soft layers of coffee-soaked ladyfingers and mascarpone cheese. Sometimes a Tiramisu can be a little soggy and disappointing but the way in which the chef prepares the Tiramisu here, there is no chance of that happening!
This is a stunning and romantic restaurant in Marylebone with extremely friendly and kind staff, and a chef who really cares about the quality of food served. Book this restaurant for a special occasion with a loved one or close friend and you won’t be disappointed.
