Too little for too much! Having picked the 5 course menu, I was ashamed towards my fellow table guests. The portions were this small it was ridiculous for the money charged! We had to order 2 plates of French Fries to make up for our hunger. This may never be the case in any restaurant. And certainly not in sophisticated place as this pretends to be. All the compliments to the Quality of the food. This was excellent, but to pay this many for so less food is criminal!

Booked for my wife's birthday on a Saturday night. She chose the nine course menu and matching wines. Letizia and her wait staff were spot on with skills, knowledge and timing. The kitchen staff were superb with the detail and finesse applied to the dishes. The only aspect that outshone the former and the latter, was the delectable tastes derived from the dishes and the matching wines. My wife has already recommended the "Krobuta pork jowl, elderflower, blueberries" dish to her friends. My favourite aligned more with the "fresh cobia, passion fruit and daikon" dish. That is not to say the rest of the course or wines were not spectacular as well. A great exploration into fine dining for us. We have plans to return in the new year to share our experience with our friends. Leo

Not fine dining restaurant. Too public. Uncomfortable seating and poor table positioning. Fine dining food but not fine dining ambience. Food excellent coupled with great adventure. Great service

It might lack a beach view but Room81’s terrace is as bright and breezy as the service - ideal for those lunches that extend into dusk and beyond. A plate of radishes and soil in a tiny terracotta pot
