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.

                      Our waiter was very friendly and our main courses were both pleasant but overall the food was average. Our crab starter was disappointing - the flavour was slightly strange and not what you’d expect from fresh crab… sadly closer to tinned crab. The restaurant was pretty enough but the chairs were not that comfortable for dining. I wanted it to be great but unfortunately we were a bit disappointed overall.

                      Food was well presented and photo-worthy, however, the balance and flavour combinations of most dishes sadly didn't match. We had an early sitting, service started well, our waiter was great, but halfway through the tasting course it started slipping — longer waits for clearing plates and bringing next courses, getting water topped up and getting the bill. Interiors had a Scandi touch, beautiful, aesthetically pleasing but not the most ergonomically correct for dining. Does suit a lounge vibe for enjoying drinks though. Pleasant enough experience, but be better to come and enjoy a drink and some oysters at sunset on the balcony next time.

                      Patrick our server was outstanding, a really nice guy and was on top of everything. The leg of lamb and all the sides and starters (oysters and the excellent bread) we had were brilliant. Can't rate it highly enough, will be back soon. I think some people were put off by the pretty loud music near the entrance but thankfully we were far away so it didn't matter to us.

                      The restaurant itself is lovely. Our waiter very attentive. Drinks are good. Food mediocre. It was my mums birthday, we both chose a chicken dish as our main. It looked lovely presentation wise, however it tasted of literally nothing no seasoning no flavour just devoid of any passion. When we spoke to the manager to say we wanted to change this for something else, she was very reluctant to remove the items from our bill citing we ate some of the food (I mean how else were we to know it was inedible?). And for a plate costing £40 each, we would expect it to be above the level of Nando’s (Nando’s actually tastes far better). We were given a 15% discount and a free desert as an apology. So my mum literally had bread and a desert for her 74th birthday. And the bill for 4 still amounted to over £200. We were robbed. Will NEVER eat at Allegra again. The manager on duty was rude, unhelpful, just awful.

                      It's a good thing I'm not a Michelin inspector as this was a classic case of good food being let down by poor service. Service whipsawed between over attentive - the waiter hovering while we tried to enjoy our oysters then snatching up the bowl before my wife had a chance to even swallow the last one - to non-existent - we waited 34 minutes between wanting to leave and actually having received the bill and paying it. I know this because we were checking the train times from Stratford International and ended up missing even what we considered at the time to be the worst case scenario. The food was undeniably excellent and everyone else seemed to be receiving better service so you should probably still go - you'll almost certainly have a better time that we did

                      Becoming a bit of a regular now.. oops. Amazing Sunday lunch as previously experienced. Salted cod starter followed by superb lamb that fell off the bone.. Tried a bottle of Riesling as recommended by Max the Sommelier and it was outstanding, had to follow it up with a bottle of cheeky desert wine which again was top notch. Superb service by Martin, Patrick and Serjie as always. Live music added to the chilled vibe. Perfect Sunday.!

                      Very nice restaurant with live music on Sunday. Great wine list and beautiful food. I gave 4 on 5 on food only because we were not impressed with crab dish that taste only more like curry then crab. (But I am pretty sure that is only our personal opinion). The staff is very attentive, (only the welcome should be more warm). An overall great experience really racomand.
