'A prime territory for those in need of first date ideas.' - GQ Magazine

'A gold star for resourcefulness' - The Guardian, Food & Drink

We had a lovely meal, we shared 6 small plates between the 3 of us and it was plenty. We had a delicious bottle of Rose wine although we did feel the wine was on the pricey side

As soon as I came across this restaurant and I saw some of the pics of their food I got very excited about it. Well, my excitement grew even more as soon as started tasting the food and as I started chatting and meeting everyone who worked there. What a delightful bunch! Mao, John, Carla and so on and so forth. I can’t wait to go back and taste other dishes on the menu. Great job you guys! A big shout to John for all his recommendations around town.

The service was great and the wait staff lovely but the food was absolutely dreadful. It tasted as though an amateur chef had gone shopping at Tesco’s and cooked for a below average dinner party. £40 pp for a small meal with wine as well 😱. Better to either splurge at Elliot’s nearby, queue for Padella, book for Boro Bistro or wander down to Bermondsey Street. I don’t understand how this place has so many positive reviews.

Airy, high ceiling room right next to Borough Market. I had asked for a quiet table and we were in a corner where conversation was easy. Good advice on cocktails. Gin/Martini correct and my Baby Doll was very tasty! Very mushroomy pasta, excellent roasted cauliflower with yoghurt and raisins, good chicken pâté with Aperol jelly and a good Herotage Tomato salad. Only one grumble- £7.50 for a 125ml glass of Provence rosé seemed a little steep. Service was very good. We’ll be returning.

Food was really good. Staff very friendly and attentive. They forgot one of our side dishes and immediately rectified it said no charge for it and also a free liqueur. Had a good buzz about it but not massively noisy.

I do not think as 60 somethings we are the clientele this restaurant prefers. We were seated in an out of sight corner, were overlooked much of the hour or so we were there, and were ignored when we asked our courses be spread out so that we could enjoy them slowly. Once we put our orders in, everything arrived quickly, with no chance to finish one item before the next appeared. If you are a young diner, you may enjoy this restaurant more. The food is good and the atmosphere lively.

A great meal - especially if you want to try several small plates (four plates for two of us was plenty for lunchtime - and great service. My only slight gripe is that the 90 minute time slot was a little tight - 120 minutes would be preferable.

Great little cosy place close to the bustle of Borough Market but quiet enough to escape it if you need some time out. Team there were very good and we felt relaxed and welcome at all times. Food was delicious - really good mix of veggie and non, all of it very tasty. Such a great spot for lazy lunch that doesn't feel corporate. Keen to get back there for dinner and to work our way through the impressive wine list!

Really enjoyed sitting here, drinking wine and slowly snacking our way through their menu for a few hours. Brilliant, friendly staff, a lovely calm atmosphere, lots of delicious treats and decent prices especially considering the location! A definite favourite. A glass of date liqeur with a side of dessert is not to be missed.
