The Angler is the perfect place for a culinary treat! The food is to die for and the service was one of the best I’ve had in London. The decor could use an upgrade but the food is sublime! Would definitely recommend and go back

What a lovely evening!! This restaurant served superb food, even on a £35pp deal. Lots of extras before and after the 3 set dinner courses. However, what made our evening really special were the staff. ALL of them were fantastic! We were brilliantly looked after by Hareo and Alessia but my special thanks go to the sommelier, Greta. I am old enough to remember when condescension was a part of their job description. She is the exact opposite - kind, helpful and understanding that not everyone can afford a £100+ bottle of wine.
Afterwards we had a drink on the terrace. Despite the restaurant closing down, Miguel and Barbara spent time talking to us and offered brilliant travelling tips. It was late and this was definitely beyond their call of duty. Much appreciated. Thank you!
If I were to be ultra picky, it would suggest that the main course should be a little bit bigger than the starter. This would keep any males, needing more food, happy. For us (two women), the amount of food was just right.

First impressions was a cool and calm setting with crisp white tablecloths. There was an option to sit inside or outside on the veranda where the awning could be adjusted depending on the weather. We had the lunch menu which was good value. Sourdough bread with caramelised butter was crunchy and warm. Tiny garlic infused onion tarts also went down very well. Starters looked Devine and was fresh with subtle flavours. The main courses again were well presented and colourful with a successful medley of flavours. No room for desserts although we were served some delicious cake like items which finished the meal off nicely. I will be back for the a la carte next time.

Why is is that some Michelin starred restaurants load you up at the start of the meal with large chunks of bread and several amuse bouche courses, is it to disguise the fact that the portions are on the small side? Starters of crab and mackerel were very good, but both small. My wife’s Dexter beef was excellent and to be fair a decent portion size, however my Turbot main although cooked to perfection was disappointing, when you pay nearly £40 a pop for a main course you expect a little more than a standard serving of fish marooned in the centre of the plate looking a little lost with nothing else around it but a drizzle of Dashi tea broth to keep it company. For the price it should have been better.

Thanks for the surprise deco of our dessert and the instant photo celebrating our wedding anniversary and my husband's 60th birthday. The sommelier is full of passion and so convincing that we enjoyed hearing his description/intro/recommendation of wine.

Tiny, tiny portions at exorbitant prices. For another £5 or so you can get a whole Dover sole somewhere like Scott’s instead of their tiny turbot which was so small that they served it in a cereal bowl. The starter of rabbit cannelloni and langoustine did not taste of much but it looked nice. Two extra mains were ordered as people were still hungry after their starters and mains. They give you plenty of bread, presumably to fill you up. We didn’t order any desserts as we saw at other tables how small they were. We shall not be returning.

The meal was good. Mayonnaise/cream in earlier taster menu dishes could have been less, and other flavours more pronounced. Later courses in menu good. Second strawberry dessert very good. Wine selection could have been broader but was acceptable.

We had an absolutely amazing time.

We were probably too loud a group ourselves. However the hosts were incredible, helped us chose a perfect wine. The meals were incredible, both delicious and beautifully put together.

We tried the 7 course taster menu - this was excellent. If I'm really picky one of the dishes was perhaps slightly too salty, but the overall standard was very high. The highlight for me was the rhubarb, ginger and basil pre-desert. Good service and I think good value. We will return!

Arriving earlier than my guest, I sat out on the veranda in the early evening, abgreatvview of the working city, the service was excellent from start to finish.
The food was perfect and the flow of the evening was uninterrupted and flew by quickly

Restaurant, food and service were great.

However, as I had booked table through the Opentable website I thought I had booked the Evening Standard offer. Unfortunately the offer was not available on Saturday night but when I made the booking this was not made clear to me. I therefore went with my friends on the night only to discover we could only have the A la Carter menu. Much more expensive than I had expected and very embarrassing to be told my understanding of what I had booked was unavailable!
Would it be possible for the Opentable website to make sure I am notified if an offer I have selected is not available for that particular date and time?

Meal started well, with the usual pre-starter bits and pieces, starter was very good sand the service impeccable.

The meal was let by a bland main course for both of us, with flavors so subtle as to be almost invisible.

The Evening Standard 3 course deal is great value anyway but the exceptional quality of every dish (incl 3 amuse bouche) make the Angler a standout option every time we go. Coupled with excellent service and a relaxed atmosphere, this is a must.

We've been meaning to try Angler for a long time and finally had the opportunity. The setting and spacing between tables was excellent and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a shorter tasting menu which was varied and very tasty as were the amuse bouche's. I had brill which was melt in the mouth and my husband had halibut also delicious.
We will definitely return - it was outstanding
