Allegra is a restaurant, bar and terrace on the 7th floor Sky Garden of The Stratford, an extraordinary building from the team behind Chiltern Firehouse and St Pancras hotel. Celebrating authentic hospitality with inventive dishes using ingredients from our local, organic farm, Allegra brings an exceptional dining experience to east London.

Head Chef Patrick Powell, formerly of Chiltern Firehouse, invites guests to embrace convivial dining from long, lazy lunches through to late night dinners.

Allegra’s interiors fuse cutting-edge style with cosy, old-world opulence designed by Space Copenhagen (the team behind Noma) which flows onto the Allegra terrace where you can walk-in for drinks, sharing dishes and small plates from a more casual menu. Try our carefully selected wine offering from our sommelier or Allegra’s signature cocktails before exploring the cedar-pathed Sky Garden overlooking the London skyline.

Very nice restaurant but a little overpriced. Food quality and presentation are good but just lack something to elevate it to special. I’ve been there once and probably wouldn’t book and return as there are so many restaurants to try but I wouldn’t steer anyone away from going there. It’s very good just not special.

Lovely space and great bar. Wanted to love it but unfortunately the food was disappointing. The ceviche starter and turbot main in particular were quite average and flavourless. We also ordered a side dish which turned out to be a huge bowl of quite stodgy potatoes. They were okay but didn’t quite go with the delicate, smaller dishes we’d ordered. It may have just been an off night so we’re keen to try again based on so many good reviews.

This being my first restaurant visit after 4.5 month of locked down, it was a refeshing to sit on the terrace and being served food. The people were all using sanitisers multiple times and it all looked pretty hygienic. The portion size was very small for a main and I was still hungry. Other than that it was all good.

Birthday Celebrations 24th July 2020

You will not be disappointed with this restaurant, the food is literally "to die for" the service was amazing, and attention to detail. My husband is a peculiar eater, however they were able to customise his dish for him. The ambience was extraordinary. Best restaurant that I have been to in a while.

We met Head Chef Patrick Powell, such a lovely man, he explained the process of how the Kerry Hill Lamb was cooked. Chef Patrick is very passionate of what he cooks and his dishes.

I saw the restaurant on Master Chef and said to my husband that I would like to go there, to my surprise he said "okay lets book it for your birthday.. my treat" It was a treat that i will not forget in a hurry.

I would recommend this restaurant 20 times over.

We cannot wait to visit the restaurant again in a couple of months.

Regards

Lyris Andrews-Kang

Absolutely loved it. Amazing food and fantastic, friendly service. Obviously a little challenging for the staff in regards to new health and safety procedures due to COVID 19 but they handled everything super professionally. Huge credit to the team, particularly the pastry chef who was politely answering all my annoying questions and the Irish manager - we can’t wait to go back!

Saturday brunch was lovely sitting on the terrace and felt very calm and relaxed. Service was slightly too relaxed as our bread didn't arrive before our food and we were left for a little too long before ordering, but the food was really good. The crab pancake was delicious & my husband really enjoyed the black pudding burger. We both had the amazing doughnuts for desert. Look forward to returning.

We only went to Allegra for drinks but the table service assistant didn’t provide the service we expected e.g. not bringing over menus when asked and forgetting our drinks.

It’s a shame for such a beautiful bar!

We sat outside on the beautiful terrace for lunch on Sunday. We ordered off the brunch menu and the food was great but the portions were really small - we had to order 4 plates between 2 and that was barely enough. The wait staff were all really attentive and lovely - was a great first post-lockdown meal!

We went for lunch, as a family of 4, for my husband’s birthday. The restaurant was well attended but not overcrowded. There was an atmosphere of serenity and we had a spacious table with truly comfortable seating. The reasonably priced lunch menu had a generous selection of yummy starters and breads. The mains were expertly executed and full of flavor. The deserts delicious and perfectly sized.
Despite not being a family restaurant the staff was friendly and accommodating of our younger child.
Overall we truly enjoyed the experience and the nice contrast between the minimalist decor and the generous carnality of the food. We would have appreciated a bigger plate, rather than the butter one, to eat our share of the starters from, but never mind, we’ll go again.
