Walking around Courtenay Place looking for a meal and not really in the mood for Asian that night, we settled (or so we thought) for The Residence.

Epecting a bar meal type menu we where more than pleasantly surprised by the selection on the menu.

My wife ordered Pork and I had chicken breast wrapped in bacon. When she ordered Pork I was pleased due to the fact I normally finish her left over, however on this occasion there was nothing left.

Not because of the small poritions, in fact the servings were very generous. She ate the lot because it was just Bloody Good. As was my Chicken.

As I stated earlier we expected bar type meals, but this food was nothing short of top end, silver service quality. Whatever The Residence needs to pay their chef to keep him, it is a no brainer.

Positives; Food, excellent selection of drinks, pleasant surrondings and friendly staff. Not busy (It was a Wednesday Night)

Negatives: Entry from Courtenay Place required passing through the smoking area, which unfortunately the smoke drifted into the resturant. A negative for us but perhaps not a major issue for other patrons.

However this small set back did not and will not deter me from eating their in the future.

Excellent and Recommeded.
