    Delicious starters, really well decorated dishes. Go for peanut butter dessert 💔

    Best restaurant experience I've ever had in London. Fantastic food without any of the pretence. Great staff, incredible food.

    Counter in front of the kitchen was an interesting proposition, though the atmosphere did not help improve the mediocre fine-dining experience.

    Ask for the vegetarian menu. They are generous with truffles!

    Great food in a relaxed setting. Best starters were the octopus and the egg. For mains, The hake, pig belly and lamb were all full of flavour. Enjoy on a date or with a small group of friends.

    Save room for dessert, or order it even if you don't have room. Each dessert is unique, beautiful, and delicious. Perfect end to a delicious meal.

    The pork belly is really good, but the flat iron steak was so chewy that my jaw was hurting! Service was extremely slow.

    The bartenders are usually the same from The Blind Pig, so the drinks are really well made. Come for the food!

    Relaxed and well designed atmosphere, good service and delicious foods. We tried the Festive Menu everything was absolutely perfect exactly the thing that you expect from a Michelin star restaurant.

    Exceptional. Can't wait to return. Mushrooms in a bag with truffle toast was mind blowing!

    The food is amazing, but the service isn't. Why have 5 waiters when 1 would do the job?

    Second time here. The food is as usual palatable. Lunch set is an absolute value for money. Though the pig cheek that day was a bit heavily-sauced.

    Unassuming ambiance let's the service and food shine. Veal melts in your mouth and cod was cooked to perfection. Trust your server's reco's.

    Great restaurant. I have been there twice and each time food and service were amazing . Although it is a Michelin star, the atmosphere is pretty relaxed. Good place to go for a date or with friends.
