Lovely as always. It was maybe our fourth visit to Dandelyan, and it is always worth the trip. The service was friendly and knowledgeable, drinks are the best I’ve had in London. They’re also doing well, as they become well known, to not let it ever get uncomfortably full; we saw numerous parties turned away on a Saturday night that was fully booked, which kept the vibe busy without being too rowdy - reservations are a must.
Lives up to the hype of best cocktail bar in the world. Drink menu is fantastic and rivals any in the industry. What separates Dandelyan is that on top of serving one of the most interesting/delicious menus I’ve seen in a while, it maintains a fun atmosphere without feeling stuffy. Overlooking the Thames is a bonus. A must visit for any cocktail enthusiasts in or visiting London.
Service was very slow - cheeky when they have a time limit of table booking.
Great cocktails , great barstaff, very relaxed atmosphere with great music
We booked a table at Dandelyan for post-dinner cocktails for my partner’s birthday. We had a window table, which had great views over the Thames. The drinks were very well-prepared, mine was a velvety whisky sour, with my other half opting for something more fruity, which she enjoyed.
The ambience is great, low lit without being dingy or dark.
All in all, a great evening.
Amazing cocktails with amazing service. Not super stuffy and formal as expected. Only gave 1 star for food as didn’t have any.
Best award-winning bar I've been to in London! Amazing cocktails...highly recommended!
Great cocktails. Disappointed that the manager told us that we weren’t allowed to swap a stool for a more comfortable chair.
Cannot recommend enough. Beautiful place! Close to Southwark station, drinks were impeccable and service exceeded expectations.
excellent service; beautiful space and delicious cocktails. Lives up to its world renowned status.
Nice cocktails, service a bit slow (which makes the 12.5% charge hard to swallow) and I guess its to be expected but not cheapest.
Great atmosphere and drinks with a great view along the Southbank. Highly recommended.
Amazing experience bartender are great !!! Enrico made our night really good. Always available to reply every single question
Ottimo cocktail bar. Tra i primi tre al mondo in svariate classifiche, eccellente.
I had a reservation and was still placed immediately inside the main doors. Not cozy at all. Vegetable flatbread was tasteless and too doughy.
I have been once before and the high quality service had not changed at the bar. Although I did have trouble finding the ladies loos and asked several times for assistance.
Best cocktail bar in the world!
Such a beautiful location!
A reasonable hotel bar with good service and accommodating staff. However, the much-vauded cocktails were disappointing, and although decent, were nowhere near as good as those found at many other cocktail bars in London.
We attended Dandelyan bar last night and were blown away with the cocktails! As gin lovers we were pleased to see so many gin based cocktails on the menu and we certainly tried lots of them. My favourite was ‘All Tomorrow’s Parties’ - a gin based sour which was so subtle and smooth to drink.
The ambience was great and we really liked the chic, mid-century decor. The view of St Paul’s was also incredible.
Although we did not indulge in any snacks, we were offered the menu promptly.
Feels very personal when being served. They customize the menu to your interest in cocktails and overall great vibes and music. Daniel who was serving us was fantastic.
Lovely cocktail venue. Everything was top notch, our only comment would be staff weren't very attentive considering it is table service. We had to wave at staff each time to order.
We didn't have food so can't comment (wouldn't let us submit without putting a rating).
Great bar and amazing drinks. The place does feel a bit like your average hotel bar.
Beautiful bar, delicious cocktails. Highly recommend.
Fabulous,cocktails,setting,service & music!❤️ Not sure if the complimentary cocktail was out of sympathy for two of us turning up in practically the same dress,looking like candy stripe bridesmaids or for the entertainment we provided..either way,it was delicious & very kind❤️Thank you,we’ll be back!..just not dressed the same...
Despite the award and the hype, making its claim to to be the best bar in the world is a stretch.
We visited at 11pm the lights were low and the bar was perhaps half full. Despite that the atmosphere of this location is, at best, dull. It has (as it is one) the air of a hotel bar. It lacks the intimacy and warmth of many of the worlds truly great cocktail bars.
The drinks were fine. The hype was, as it so often is, far to much for the bar and its condescending wait staff to be able to keep up with. Had I not already known the bar made many of its own infusions etc, I would never have been able to tell. This trip was made especially to taste 2 or 3 of the bars famed classics. All of which fell short, were pounds more expensive and had little impact other than the failure to impress.
An old teacher of mine used to say that if you could not find anything good to say about a piece of artwork, you could always talk about the frame.... With that in mind, the hotel that bar is attached to has a wonderful representation area (if only the bar had a similar interior decor) and lovely restrooms (wrecked only by a gent taking coke in one of the stalls).
Era un lugar bonito y las bebidas estaban ricas, solo que nos pidieron dejar la mesa 1 hora y media después y por eso no volvería
Excellent cocktails but they are varying sizes and sometimes small, slightly disappointing at times although very yummy :)
Creative cocktail menu, delicious & beautiful cocktails, pretty interior, amazing view of the Thames, and friendly service. We went for an after dinner cocktail at 8:30pm on a Thursday and were surprised it was not packed, nor noisy. The servers were so friendly and attentive. The bonus was being able to sit on a Platner Chair while sipping my cocktail.
