Fodor's Review

Discreet and intimate, this restaurant is a showcase for the French-inspired cuisine of Chef Michael Macdonald, who, as the restaurant's name implies, holds vanilla in high esteem. The fixed-price menu borrows the flavor of a French bistro and shakes it up a bit, so you might have filet mignon with polenta, or lamb rump with bean cassoulet, or something more adventurous, such as fennel escabeche with mackerel and vanilla. The three-course lunch menu is a fantastic bargain at £19.50, and the seven-course menu gourmand for £60 is a tour de force.
