Conveniently located - wide range of options on the menu from tapas, pasta, meat, fish, vegetarian - a choice for everyone. Laid back ambience. Friendly staff. Definitely worth a revisit.

Life competes with Tasha's upstairs and does a good job at that. It is a lovely place for a quick light meal or a coffee and well worth a visit!

What a lovely spot in Hyde Park Corner. The decor is amazing and fresh. The food is always always always fantastic. And with the amazing salad bar there is great options and variety. Lovely for slow afternoon with friends and family.

With an unrivaled salad bar (the tempura zucchini are a MUST) and reliably good food, this is a regular haunt for me. Some of my favourites include the Artisan Dip Platter and the breakfasts are fantastic.
