The meal we had was superlative. After three small Amuse bouche we had a series of dishes each better than the last until the coup de gras, if you can say such a thing, an unbelievable smoked chocolate souffle. Only one dish failed to reach the highest standard, a tuna which had been cooked through rather than seared. The waghu dish and the cheek were mouth watering, tender and full of flavour. Just simply a spectacular meal.
