It's Soho, so being overpriced is a given - and this place is tiny, so getting a table in itself could be seen as a victory. There's no faulting the service, which was good humoured. Was the recommendation that the dishes are for sharing also...More

went for a pre-theatre meal. As we had not been there before the staff guided us through the menu advising on portions etc and even let us try a couple of wines to help us choose. Interesting and tasty food

Amazing restaurant with such great food. Tapas style Israeli food. So delicious. Relatively small restaurant with bar area and dining room at the back. Service great too. Highly recommended.

Had a tapas lunch at the Palomar with colleagues. Food we delicious....interesting combination of flavours. The ambience was great. I often travel and I'm on my own....would be very comfortable sitting at the bar counter which overlooks the kitchen when I return.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,

Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

Yes, absolutely! The Apollo is on Shaftesbury Avenue, and The Palomar is on a side street off of this - probably less than a 2-3 minute stroll. I'd recommend it, truly.
