When you visit London from the country its always a bit of a hit and miss affair, unless you have eaten there previously. Well we needed a restaurant that understood gluten free requirement so my daughter googled that requirement and this was one of the closest to the Shaftsbury Theatre.

A rare combination of amazing fresh food and service in London. We were shown to our table straight away. The waitress Sonia who was was brilliant all evening, briefly explained the menu. All food and drinks came out in a timely fashion, and the dessert was incredible too. Would definitely come back here.

Fantastic Mexican food at its best, got to try some real beauts and loved every mouthful. The gluten free options were clearly labelled on the main menu with a Great so made selection really easy and painless. Tried the non alcoholic drinks too and it was divine. Staff were lovely, the place is a real find!

Really enjoyed the food - we went for the pre-theatre set meal option, and didn't feel cheated on portion sizes, or rushed. It's a much bigger place than I'd expected, and the atmosphere on a quiet Tuesday early evening may have suffered a bit for this - I imagine it's a bit more buzzy later on or at the weekends....
