Dolada almost "staggeringly good" but dear, says critic

Italian restaurant Dolada in Mayfair serves great food but at ridiculously high prices, according to the Metro's food critic.

"The food just misses being staggeringly good, though some dishes actually get there," says Marina O'Loughlin.

But she adds that the price isn't all right, with the wine list "wholeheartedly marked up".

"You'd need to be a Kashoggi to study the menu with any degree of aplomb."

Fay Maschler enjoys a seasonal British menu charmingly served by owner Thierry Tomasin at Angelus.

"Tomasin's admirable view of a restaurant meal - quite different from that of most employers - is that customers should "forget about work for two or three hours"," the London Evening Standard's food critic says.

Kitous first launched Comptoir Libanais at Westfield but last month launched a standalone site on Wigmore Street.
