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.

Much needed fine dining in the area. Food was beautifully prepared though not every item was a hit. That said the cocktails were delicious, the staff took great care of us and the space was chicly furnished, with a lovely chilled ambience despite it being a quiet brunch time.

Beautiful restaurant and fabulous food! Friendly service, but staff seemed distracted/weren't listening properly and they got a couple of things wrong with our order... They quickly fixed this when we raised it though. Would definitely go back and highly recommend!

Although I know things are strange because of covid we were able to book for 830, but our waiter rushed us throughout our meal, and didnt make it an a pleasant experience, perhaps consider having a booking up till 8pm so neither party feels rushed, food however was outstanding. I wanted to try a dessert but we didnt have time. Chicken dumpling and pollock starter/main were delicious, the restaurant itself is lovely.

Absolutely delicious food, a fine dining experience in an unexpected location! Each course was beautifully presented and explained to us at the table, service was efficient and attentive, a thoroughly enjoyable evening. 2 courses for 2 people and a couple of drinks each came to just under £180 including service.

We’ve been wanting to visit Allegra for a little while and it didn’t disappoint. We had the kale & anchovy salad, cod brandade, lobster taglierini and Paris-Brest for dessert. All delicious! Service was exceptional as well. We’ll be back!

Had a really fabulous meal here on Saturday evening. My courses included confit chicken and parmesan dumplings, followed by grouse. I rarely choose desert but the previous courses were so good and the choices so interesting I ordered quince Mille-Feuille with almond ice cream. A beautifully balanced desert.

Beautiful restaurant, really excellent staff and some very top notch food that we thoroughly enjoyed.
The only exception was the quality of the rib eye beef that we all had (4 people). Ours was medium rare and edible but not a pleasure as it was very chewy , borderline tough. Our friends was well done and really not edible. It was rib, but not good enough quality to match the rest of the experience.
Their meal was grudgingly replaced when they sent it back but it wasnt the way it was cooked that was the problem, as the staff suggested, it just wasn’t good enough. Beef removed from our bill , as expected,

This is a fantastic restaurant, everything was faultless. If they keep this up they should get a Michelin Star soon, in fact it was better than some 1 Star places we’ve been to. The food is light and elegant with deep complex flavours, it’s refreshing not to feel like you’ve had a whole block of butter. The environment is modern and simple, they let the food do the talking here, there’s no need for overly fancy decor. We went to Galvin Le Chappel a couple of weeks earlier and this was easily as good in my opinion.

Wow. A nice restaurant in Stratford! A real gem. Delicious and ambitious food. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Will certainly return as the menu had lots of appetising and appealing options. Its really good. Recommend it. Nor what you may expect for a hotel restauant in Stratford. Its as good as any restaurant in the nicer parts of London.

While the food and service was good, I was a little disappointed that having emailed about it being my friends birthday and the offer from you of a little cake to note it, nothing appeared. Yes, I could have asked, but it was a surprise that would have lost impact. The offer was only made on the morning, so a very short time before to have been missed.

Went here with my girlfriend for my birthday this Sunday and was seated out on the terrace. The meal started off well but the service declined throughout, the waiter spilled a drink onto our table and we waited an age for the bill. When the bill arrived they’d tried to charge us for a side of greens which we didn’t order, but they did bring out (we thought it was complimentary). They also charged us cocktail prices from the Main menu rather than the brunch cocktail list which was the one we ordered from (same cocktails, different prices). Food was good value but not sure we’ll be returning given the rest of the experience.

Fantastic food, wine and service. At the expensive end of the spectrum but was great for a special occasion. They have made sure that it doesn't feel like a hotel restaurant (which can sometimes feel a bit souless).
