We had a lovely lunch at Blixen. Food was excellent. Staff were friendly- we were there for my dad’s birthday and they brought out his dessert with candle and chocolate happy birthday which was lovely. Really relaxed vibe in there- recommend it! It’s great!

Great food - paneer wasn't very flavourful, but otherwise excellent

Nice portion sizes - ddn't come out stuffed but also wasnt still hungry after "fancy" food. For 4 people we had 2 apps (the specials), 4 entrees with 2 sides, and 2 desserts. Loved the space, and the menu was really varied.

We had a really wonderful time at Blixen. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was a modern but romantic spot with truly outstanding food and lovely cocktails. I asked to be seated somewhere quiet due to a disability and the staff responded without any fuss, putting us in a very quiet but very pretty spot. Service was attentive and quick without making us feel rushed. I'd definitely go again.

Everything was perfect. The food was spectacular and if you get a snack or a starter, the portions are really good to make you feel perfectly fed at the end of the night. We went for a dinner with my mom and a friend of mine and we all enjoyed everything. Some dishes are presented better than others but I don’t think that’s a problem at all. The ambiance was great and our booth was really comfortable. And the best part of it is that the service was amazing. Attentive, quick, helpful and incredibly friendly. We had 2 people wait on us at different times and they were both amazing! I would recommend for all sorts of dining. However, it is slightly on the more expensive side but what do you expect coming to a place like this? Overall, we were very pleased. Thank you!

Amazing menu, and choices available. Beautiful room. Service was brilliant while eating - constant flow of water topping-up, however became very slow once finished as it took us forever to attract attention

This was my second visit to Blixen. The first time was for dinner and today was brunch. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel that the brunch menu was as appealing as dinner. Our food was warm/cold, so that wasn’t great.

No fault of the restaurant but the garden seating area was out of action.

We came here for brunch, and all of the food was really good (except the pear-pistachio tiramisu, where the flavours didn’t really merry together). The dishes overall were really great (we tried their burger, a haddock dish, burrata starter, asparagus starter, couple of desserts). The cocktails were average (but nice!) and the coffee was good. I would definitely come back, mainly for the atmosphere.

Wonderful staff, good food and tremendous ambiance.
The only downside was the two wobbly tables that the four of us were allocated. The staff did try to remedy the situation, however, the fix was only temporary.
That said, we will certainly be back.

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.

Beautiful setting, slow but nice service, food is OK. A friend had to send a dish back because it was doused in strong mustard, yet that wasn't even listed as an ingredient on the menu. The chicken was good but there wasn't much to the dish, so I wasn't blown away.
