Let’s go Royal at The Duchess

Another restaurant within the W Hotel complex, The Duchess is hosted in an old bank building and keeps the interior of the caveau for a precious dinner. The promise is ‘eclectic classics with a fresh twist’ and to be fair, it is indeed eclectic classics, with a good hommage to tradition.I personally love the small donuts filled with foie gras as entree, the duck breast and  the Beef Wellington as main (yummy). The ambience is very well curated, with candle-lit tables, yet the overall feeling is not pretentious, and the service is friendly and good without being excessively formal or stiff.
