This little restaurant with only 14 covers sits unassumingly in the middle of Dorchester. However if you get past the front door the food is a delight! There are options for 4,6 or 8 course tasting menus. Our group of 6 opted for the 6...More

Perfect birthday treat in the form of Sunday lunch at Sienna. The cote de boeuf is perfection: brined for extra flavour and succulence, served pink with huge Yorkshires, 6 wonderful veg, horseradish and gravy. An absolute feast. Excellent bottle of Argentinian Malbec and all rounded...More
