Lovely place for brunch. Seated by windows and was quite chilly. Loved the chorizo hash and cakes.

We went for brunch for my birthday. The food was amazing and the staff even better. They were friendly and so attentive and would stop to have a chat and a laugh with us. Really made the experience incredible.

Loved the ambience and the light room. Easier than than the Caravan Kings X as not so chaotic and loud. Great attentive staff.

Great ambience, and amazing waitor - but food was average. Eggs were overcooked (not runny) and the baked eggs were a bit tasteless. King's Cross is better!

I love Caravan - their food, their ethos and the people who work for them, all have made London dining much better! My only reservation is the noise levels - I would much prefer to have more ambient and atmospheric music - at the moment, it rocks out too much for my taste.

Really love this venue! We came for a breakfast meeting, I really like when you book in advance you get sat in a more spacious area at the back of the restaurant and it feels very relaxed. The food and coffee are fantastic!

There was 10 of us for breakfast. It was quite full. And service a bit slow; overall food was good. we we were
asked to leave
20 mins before 12 noon for them
to prep for lunch. That was the downside.

Poor service
Average food
Not a winning combination
After 25 minutes of no service we got up to leave after our meal and we were welcomed to the restaurant!!! We just wanted to pay and go for pudding somewhere else!
Very disappointed and never again!

Great meal and would definitely return. Only criticism was that it was slightly understaffed meaning the (very pleasant) waiting staff took a while to attend to us. I also didn’t then appreciate being queried as to why we were paying slightly less tip.

Caravan has an excellent selection of tasty vegetarian and meat dishes. We chose a selection of the nibbles, small plates and salads and found that we had plenty to eat and it was all delicious. The deserts weren't so good - quite basic chocolate ice cream/chocolate cream and some biscuits. Wine selection was also great and good value.

Atmosphere good, service slow
Delivered the wrong dishes a couple of times.
Side dishes arrived later than main dishes and had to be asked for more than once.

I have been to a few of the Caravan branches across London, including at King’s Cross and Bankside and so was a little disappointed with my experience at the Fitzrovia branch, considering my great experiences at the other locations listed. The food, as always, was delicious. We shared around 5 small plates between the three of us, with the cornbread and greens as side orders. However the service is what really let the whole experience down. We waited a long time to get asked what drinks we’d like and then another long while until they arrived. In addition, all of the plates were brought out in a peculiar order, for example we were served our side of greens on its own, with no other plates to accompany it. We also had a really hard job of catching the eye of any of the waiters/waitresses in order to ask for more drinks etc. It wasn’t especially busy for a Saturday night so I am not sure why it took so long to be served. The restaurant is big and all of the customers were really spread out, so this may have been the reason. We ordered two desserts at the end of the meal, the angel food cake which was delicious and the Madagascan dark chocolate cream which was really not good! It was extremely salty, which was not described on the menu so none of us could really eat it. We’d have complained to the serving team, but it was so difficult to catch one of their eyes that in the end we gave up as we needed to leave. We mentioned it at payment and they apologised and said they would tell the chef, but its not what I really expect from a high end eatery such as Caravan.

Food was fantastic as always but very disappointed with our waiter. I love the friendly warm welcome you always get at Caravan in Kings Cross so my friend and I were surprised by the indifference and rude service we got from our waiter. Definitly not a patch on our fave!

We really liked the food but the service was a bit disengaged. We weren’t asked if we wanted drinks while we were looking at the menu (we did), then several times we were offered food that wasn’t ours and one item we asked for didn’t arrive. It wasn’t especially busy, our waitress just didn’t seem very interested. But we like the room and the food, with better trained servers it would be really good.
