Beautiful room, and very good service. The food was perfect. Costs a bit more, but worth it for a special evening. A little hard to find inside the national gallery but lots of staff to help you navigate and its a great setting.

Hi, I dont think they do but maybe you can try emailing them. Their food is great but will be a bit on the high side.

There is a bar inside the restaurant with high stools... not much room and waiters rush by. Better bet is the rooftop bar. The view is wonderful and the restaurant routinely send customers there for pre-dinner cocktails... More
