The three of us greatly enjoyed our lunch at this friendly, quirky and intimate restaurant. My starter of smoke duck salad was fresh and tasty. My cod with gnocchi was delicious. The service was friendly and professional. I will certainly return on my next visit to London.

Without exaggeration, the worst service I have ever had the misfortune have in a restaurant. The place was moderately busy but the 2 guys serving seemed more interested in each other, endlessly chatting about their social lives. A bottle of wine that we ordered at the same time as our starter didn't arrive until the starter was long finished. Our... More

I must start by saying that the food was delicious. But the decoration of the tables and the service probably can be better. It was also terribly warm.

Food is excellent and wines well selected and presented. Staff is super friendly. We had a sunny lunch on their terrace which is super tiny but hence very quiet and cosy. The overall restaurant/terrace might need a bit a refurbishment and there was some smoke inside the restaurant which has probably been unpleasant for the people dining inside but we... More

The atmosphere was very cozy and hygge. Definitely a great place for a date. The food was very delicious too. I have never tasted olives so delicious! There white chocolate and pistachio cheesecake was incredible. Highly recommend.

Dropped in here on spec after the restaurant we'd planned to go to was fully booked. Very happy we found this place. Small, more intimate type of vibe. Food was excellent. Too had a good vegetarian option - stuffed red peppers with halloumi, wild rice - not just a footnote like a lot of places-this was very good. The other... More

Never heard of this restaurant before but have just had the most amazing meal. Totally delicious and the service was faultless. I can't rate this place too highly and I would like to thank the staff for making our evening so enjoyable. Definitely need to book.

We had booked a table well in advance and arrived to find that our error had meant we were a day late. However, they were so welcoming and accommodating and found us a table - with such good grace and charm. It was the first night of our honeymoon in London and they made it such a great evening -...

We were recommended to eat in this place by friend and she was so right the fish dishes were excellent. We have such lovely food in an ambient atmosphere. The place was lovely. The service was fantastic and we would like to tell everyone to avoid the queues elsewhere and book a table here.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
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, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red 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 most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
