 (London)·Dined on 28 October 2017

Culinary Excellence, without seemingly effort

We chose the 10 course taster menu with wine pairings, the optional truffle course & cheese.
Simply put it’s probably the best meal I’ve ever had, each course brought with it a new wonderful surprise and cornucopia of beautiful smells & flavours .

Each dish was marvellous well executed, the ingredients well chosen for seasonality and clearly the finest available. Staff were incredibly knowledgeable on the every detail of every ingredient and wine pairings were spot on.
The restaurant has a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere, it’s fairly small (less than 30 covers), which you rarely see in Michelin star restaurants, more’s the pity. Also being in the same room as the kitchen was really nice, not noisy at all.

 (London)·Dined on 7 October 2017

This was one of the most amazing food experiences I ever had and although it left a significant hole in my monthly budget it was worth the money. Once my account recovered, I would always come back for a very special occasion. It was sensational!

I would have loved though to take a written menu - including the accompanying wines - home but was told as every table has an individual setup this would not be possible. Given the time we spent there (four hours) and the amount we spent (600 GBP) I honestly think it should have been made possible...

 (San Francisco)·Dined on 3 October 2017

One of the staff at In Situ in San Francisco recommended this restaurant. It was superb. The chef/owner gave every diner personal attention, including delivering dishes where necessary. We were able to sit at the bar where we could observe the kitchen; the attention to detail was impressive. Each dish was meticulously prepared, and carefully served. One gets what's being prepared that evening, and we enjoyed it all. It takes a while to get there from downtown London but it's worth the trip.

Another amazing meal at Hedone. The combination of flavours in each dish are outstanding, and every dish delicious. I have been to Hedone a few times over the years now, and it's great to see the restaurant going from strength to strength. No need to travel into Central London or outside of London for fine dining food like this, when it's on our doorstep! If you haven't been, go.

We went to Hedone for a wedding birthday at lunch. Charming interior, you can sit behind the counter and watch all the yummy food be prepared in front of your hungry eyes. We did chose the "light" options with 4 dishes, and our palates and appetites were extremely satisfied! Special mention to the Oysters and scottish scalops, a marvel of freshness and cooking. We were just surprised by the way of asking to choose the wine - before even knowing what will be your menu made of.
The chef came to briefly discuss with all the clients and was around all the time, which was nice.
We plan to come back here for the tasting menu :)

Hedone was a stunning experience. Aside from the food which was obviously incredible, the service was flawless, the staff and manager were funny and open, visibly as excited about everything was being served as we were. Final touch, they sent us him with a goody bag of gorgeous sourdough loaf. Thank you!

The whole experience was excellent. A great table, friendly service. Some beautiful food and amazing wines. We had the 7 courses tasting menu. The savoury dishes were outstanding. The pudding was OK but not up to the standard of the rest of the meal. The petit fours were horrid!

Lovely celebration dinner. A very small and intimate restaurant. The food was amazing and we took the wine pairing too to ensure we fully appreciated the food. Also, as you don't know what you will be eating would be challenging to choose an appropriate wine.
Great service but also very friendly.

 (London)·Dined on 13 July 2017

We went there for my husband's birthday dinner, chose the tasting 7 courses menu with matching wines. My husband is a fine dining chef himself, so the dinner place, is always a difficult one to pick. Hedone, however, fulfilled all our expectations.
I was pleasantly surprised how 'informal' it was. Other fine dining restaurants we've been to, were a bit more formal than that.
The fact that we could see chefs 'in action' added to the experience.
The staff were very polite and informative. The wine waiter was bit rushed, I felt, on the other hand maybe he didn't want to disturb for too long?

Highly recommend, for special occasions rather than every day dining.

As I have said before, the whole experience is like a dream. When you enter that unpretentious door, you feel that all is well with the world. You are well taken care of, there is no rush and no wait, no harsh noices, no difficult choices to make, and you are served the most amazing flavours (it feels like a sacrilege to call it food). This time we had the prestige wine pairing which was divine. I'll be back.

Clearly one of the best restaurants around at the moment. The creativity is such that you forget the absence of menus (which normally annoys a lot).

The room is extremely well executed- cool and calm with the right amount of buzz.

Service is exceptional without fussiness. Watching the kitchen brigade is a delight. The small but superbly chosen wine list is almost worth the visit on its own. Not cheap but still amazing value. Cannot think of a better place in London/UK or Europe.
