Over-priced, pretentious and not very good food. Why do fish and meat both have to be served under-cooked despite requests by the customers to have them cooked through?

This place is undoubtedly one of my favourite restaurants! We enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu and the Fillet of beef was truly amazing!
