"While the effect in all this cooking is fundamentally simple, achieving it requires immense technical skill. Breakfast and brunch are catered for with standard café fare, big on egg dishes (including ‘coddled eggs and UN peacekeepers’, instead of boiled egg and soldiers)." READ REVIEW

"The best dish was, predictably enough, a Gallic classic. Billed merely as “rib-eye steak”, it arrived juicily medium-rare and smothered with a luxuriously creamy shallot and green peppercorn sauce. Frites? Perfect. The plate was suitably fought over; licked clean." READ REVIEW
Critic's score: 7
