Great place to have a drink and maybe some nibbles but the final bill was a lot, so a little underwhelmed by the food quality. That been said the service was lovely and enjoyed a great cocktail.

The whole team at Blixen were fantastic. I can't wait to go back again. I have some special dietary needs and they were very helpful which was a hug relief. It's beautiful in there.

Good food and lovely venue. One small problem - the food came too quickly after we ordered. It made the brunch feel a bit rushed. It also made me question just how freshly prepared the food was - which I am sure was unfair.

The food was absolutely exquisite! Such a beautifully tailored menu, around the seasonal produce avaliable.

Our waiter was friendly and approachable, explained the menu perfectly and catered to my partners allergies.

I literally cannot find a fault in anything: the food, cocktails, service or decor. Everything was beautifully simple, but you could tell how much work had gone into everything. Outstanding!

Food was really poor unfortunately. Gnocchi absolutely tasteless. Spiced ravioli was like an odd curry. Croquettes tastes frozen and served on a tea saucer. Even desserts were odd and covered in salad garnish. Just a bizarre meal. Good looking restaurant but just really disappointing food.

The place was great, but the 1.5 hour max at the table is a bit poor - especially if you're the kind of people who like to enjoy their food and drinks. I appreciate that some people will just order one thing and sit there all day, but there are also people who will spend an awful lot of money if you let them!

A place full of character, where eating is only part of the experience, notwithstanding that the quality of food is excellent. The staff was really nice and they let us chat in the garden room well beyond the allocated time.

Garden section makes you feel like you're sat in a terrarium, what a great atmosphere. Food was delicious and more interesting than your average full English (highly recommend the rosti), coffee was tasty, seating was comfy. Will certainly return.

Very good service and nice decor. Good selection of drinks and eclectic menu selection. We were in the garden room reminiscent of my childhood. The main dinning room looked interesting with lots of booths. Unsure as to the mix of so many flavours in each course. Beautifully presented.

I knew my date was going to be delayed and phoned the restaurant to modify the timing. The staff were excellent and happy to accommodate this change.

On arrival the staff were friendly and courteous, they found my booking and showed to to the table immediately.

The ambience was great my date and I agreed is was lovely like a beautiful garden and we appreciated the open kitchen area too.

The food was excellent and the wine we chose was very nice too.

Overall the service, food and ambiance were excellent. I’d definitely revisit.
