Fantastic menu - really recommend the pork crumpets. Will be back
These were the worst burgers I have ever had in my life. The meat is chargrilled (borderline burnt) and it really ruined our lunch.
As always this place just keeps getting better and better with every visit, it was excellent the first time I visited and now it’s amazing, being seated in the conservatory area is a must, it’s like Kew Gardens palm house with a bonus restaurant inside. Friendly and happy staff, great floor manager, cocktails to die for and the food is out of this work, chefs current new menus are really some of the best in London currently. A great combination all round, the new outside seating area is ready for the sunny London days and long summer evenings. Cannot wait to visit again.
Lovely vibe in the conservatory. Tasty food, great gin
We actually ended up cancelling our booking on arrival as the menu had changed since our last visit. The reason we chose Blixen is because we adored their pancakes and gin cocktails. But the pancakes have been taken off of the menu by the new chef, which is devastating and meant that there was nothing on the menu that either of us wanted to eat. PLEASE BRING THE PANCAKES BACK!
Nice food but the drinks service was incredibly slow, they also charged for food we didn’t order, but rectified it when we queried it.
We had lunch at Blixen during a busy workday and it was a real oasis of calm. All the dishes were light and full of flavour, particularly liked the cured salmon. Didn't sample the wine list because lunchtime, but i'm definitely going back to try it. Really tasty, and a great location between Liverpool St and Shoreditch, in Spitalfields Market.
We had an amazing dinner at Blixen. The location is super cozy and the food was great. Great wine list.
Recommend lunch in garden, friendly staff, great location, situated next to market and cool east London
Lovely. Just the cocktails were tacky. Brilliant in every other aspect though.
Perfect brunch in the garden area!
Simply the best!
Very disappointed that there is no option to book in the garden. Food is good. Service is good.
Very nice brunch, lovely buzzy atmosphere, efficient staff (maybe a bit too much-they’re keen to turn the table I think). Would recommend and come back.
Lovely ambience and comfortable seating although my five month pregnant daughter might struggle with the booth seating! More plain food options would be welcome too.
Amazing food great service stunning environment
Used to go to this place almost every week and it was incredible. We went a few months ago and had. A bad experience so stopped going, we thought we would try it again this weekend and once again terrible service, pre-prepared food. I won’t be giving it another chance.
Good lively restaurant, buzzy atmophere. Good food, service could have been better but overall a lovely evening.
Return visit to Blixen did not disappoint. Good food range and wine list, service was fine too.
Lovely lunch, I had the trout and avocado, my colleague the risotto, both delicious. Nice unpretentious lunch venu, will definitely come again.
Staff were rather unfriendly and miserable. Ordered two juices and the glasses came so full of ice there was barely a couple of mouthfuls of juice.
Food came before juice which was disappointing and whilst the quality was reasonable, the price was pretty high for what you actually got.
Nice drinks and decor but very poor food, tasteless salad that was £14
Great atmosphere and lovely setting. Awful service , rude staff .
Friendly and helpful staff, but my order got mixed up so I ate after my friends had started, the server was very apologetic and told me I could have it half price, when the bill came it wasn’t half price and a £10 service charge was added. Disappointing BUT other than this we all had a great time and the food was amazing.
Been here twice now and received great service from the staff. Very nice design inside and comfortable. Food is really good and well priced.
My girlfriend and I went to Blixten to celebrate my birthday. The brunch menu was really appealing but unfortunately we did not like 100% our dishes. The cider and the pancakes were awesome though! The thing that we liked the most was the environment and what we liked the less was the service. Our waitress was unpolite and unfriendly, furthermore she forgot our pancakes and we waited for more than 30 minutes.
Great dining experience for a 21st birthday brunch. Blixen staff made such a lovely effort with the cake we bought with us. Thank you so much for a friendly, warm and unique dining experience.
Came here for brunch on a Saturday and were seated in the outdoor area. Really liked the outdoor design and was a good atmosphere for brunch and a few cocktails. I ordered the trout, poached eggs on rye bread. The portion size was good and I enjoyed the dish. I was disappointed to see no salmon dishes on the menu. Also would have liked to see some standard lagers on the menu such as Peroni, Estrella. Overall, had a good time and would come back.
Great vibe, well- executed and absolutely delicious food with attentive service . I can highly recommend the Jerusalem artichoke risotto- outstanding!
Great location, especially in the indoor garden. Food is just average, not to remember. Coffee not worth it. Service seems inexperienced but kind. I’ll try again for a drink, since the ambience is really amazing.
I like this restaurant but the last few times I've visited there have been issues with service. Both times we were made to wait 15mins to be seated even though we had booked. Once seated service is good and the food is very nice.
We have spend a cozy Sunday Brunch at Blixen and fell in love with the beautiful interior, the amazing food and happy atmosphere of the place. I would highly recommend it!
The food was great but the service terrible: the waiter was rude to us, and this is inacceptable. Too bad for the restaurant because despite the good food, good place, good price, we will recommend our friends to avoid it.
I went for a lunch with friends and I really love the atmosphere and the food. All the people working in, are all really good and professional.
I really recommend the part of the restaurant called the Garden.
Very lovely setting and great food
It was chaotic. We waited 45 minutes from ordering to be told that all 4 of us could not have the dishes we had ordered as they had run out of a main ingredient. While we chose something else, I ordered some dips for the table. They arrived with the revised main courses. The only thing that saved the restaurant, and our experience, was how pleasant the staff were as they struggled to cope.
The servant wanted us to leave when we just finished our meal.
Excellent as always!
Very good Shoreditch bistro. Excellent welcome by Sam the host who found us a great booth. Waiting staff were efficient and at tentative but not over so. Food looked and tasted great. Good lively ambience.
Great food, great staff and great atmosphere!
Definitely will be back soon!
