My friend and I were quite impressed with the food though my wife, who has discriminating tastes, found more average. Perhaps this place does meat dishes better than the veg ones. I have to say this place is very quiet and well priced, and we found it to be a real value. We'll definitely try it again.

After 18 months, 129HRD is still offering excellent value for money. We’ve taken lots of people there, and all have been impressed.
It’s contributing to the recent improvements in standards along that part of the Holloway Road.
Long may it remain!!

This would have been a four star experience, but for the amount of butter used. Too much for my personal taste.

The menu seems to have reduced since our last visit - it may be because it was a match day at the Emirates? Some very noisy football supporters who raised the noise levels in the restaurant. We may not return

This is my second visit to 129HRD. This is a cosy place within walking distance to the Emirates. On match day it can be a little noisy as it is a small space. The owner is very welcoming. The menu is limited but a good mix of continental inspired dishes. I had Buratta as a starter followed by Boeuf bourguignon which was very tasty. Portions are not big which means that is it good but not outstanding value for money.

We had the lemon sole (delicious!) and veggie burger with a bottle of chenin blanc and we left two empty plates! And we had a complimentary limoncello to round off the night. Would like to see this lovely spot busier on a Friday night.

I went to meet an old friend to have a meal and drinks before going to a match at the Emirates. It was quiet when we arrived but filled up later.
The staff were welcoming and attentive without being too obtrusive.
Although the menu is limited the food was really good and well presented. Our steaks were done to perfection .
I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant .
