Really not a good meal or experience. Cold air-con (in December) so all of the sharing plates got cold before we could eat them. Not helped by the fact they all turned up at the same time rather than in a steady flow. I had a steak that was so crusted in salt it could have been preserved. Uncomfortable atmosphere and not authentic.
We chose the VOC because we needed to be somewhere close to the station and in that respect it's in a great spot tucked away from the main road in a quietish courtyard. All in all it was an enjoyable experience; tasty, well-presented food in a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere but I couldn't award five stars because of two things: we asked if they served Irish coffees and after hesitating the waitress said 'yes'. Irish coffees were made but they didn't resemble an Irish coffee. Also, we had trouble getting in. Two men on the door, which seemed to be locked, asked if we had ID (we're all in our 40s) but I think they were just customers who were 'having a bit of fun'. Not fun if it's freezing outside, so the VOC need to sort that out. I would recommend if you're in the area, but I wouldn't travel out of my way to get there.
I booked a table late on Friday afternoon which was really easy to do, its a bit hard to find but called restaurant and a very polite lady gave me direction to which she was waving at me though the window and still giving me direction very helpful indeed when arriving at restaurant/bar told them I had booked a table and got a tab instantly from the bar tender no question/card asked for, we sat down @ 20.00 and a very kind and polite waitress was at our service explaining how the menu worked we decided on 4no tasters 1st which all I can say were 1st class Michelin style,and with the wine we ordered with our main coarse was absolutely fantastic. all I can say we will be back very shortly I have passed this on to a lot of my colleagues for them to try. PS well done for a great evening to you and your fabulous staff a hidden gem if I say so myself..
Great service. Excellent range of cocktails. Food very nice but expensive for what it was.
The decor was amazing, as soon as you walk in you're greeted by the staff behind a bar full of character. They couldn't do enough for us and both myself and my date loved the food. My steak was perfectly cooked and although I was full I wished to try all of the food on the menu as they made an amazing job of the food that we had.
It was a good place for a work lunch, though the dishes were a bit too small and the service was a bit slow.
Trouvé dans le livre " London insolite " et site internet très attirant ... malheureusement une fois sur place cela nous a semblé trompeur
Pas mal mangé mais sans plus, déco moins top que sur les photos, service un peu froid, pas eu envie de prendre un verre après
Bien que renseigné sur le site, le tip (pourboire) d'office facturé est de trop ... nousn'aurions rien laissé sinon !
Pas conseillé du tout !
Lovely bar and restaurant tucked away from the crazy Kings Cross.
Cocktails looked amazing, taste was good but didn't fully deliver on the alcohol content.
Menu was mainly tapas style and beautifully presented. However all of the food was brought out at once rather than when dishes were ready. The lamb cutlets was delicious; however everything else was quite ordinary. Crispy duck salad was also nice however it was hunt the quantity of duck. Slightly pricey meal and drinks for the quality offered.
Very friendly staff, excellent service and delicious food and fun cocktails Only negative is that we struggled to fit all the plates on the table, I would suggest serving the tapas style choices on smaller plates. Other than that a great night out. Thanks
The food was delicious. The staff were very attentive and lovely.
