This homely, high-end restaurant is littered with intimate, candle-lit alcoves and niches. The Arabian theme continues with traditional tobacco-coloured walls, Moroccan lanterns and rugs, cushions and Eastern ornaments. To complete the mood, diners are serenaded with soft music performed by oud and tabla musicians. The food is Moroccan-inspired and while our starter of a selection of cold mezze failed to make much of an impression, things improved dramatically with the mains. The tagines are theatrically unveiled simultaneously and the presentation is as good as we’ve seen. The quality is also excellent, with dishes containing a sophisticated depth of multi-layered tastes. Service is outstanding, with friendly staff pleased to accommodate requests quickly and efficiently. While prices are on the higher side, the setting and standard of cuisine differentiate it from most of Tagine’s cheaper rivals. It’s the perfect setting for a romantic evening and highly recommended.
