Island Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: From the outside, the sleek glass and stone looks slightly daunting, but the inside affords a great view over Hyde Park. The décor is dark wood tables and light-coloured floors, with a slate-topped bar taking pride of place on one level. The cooking is dependable with dishes like antipasti to share, grilled lamb cutlets or pastas hitting the spot with the largely hotel clientele. The cocktails are good; the wine list is fair and varied and the staff is anxious to please. Pre-7pm supper 2 courses £15, 3 courses £19.
