Casa Fofo is a lovely tiny restaurant which offers a very well curated menu. Food is delicious and a true palate experience. I would suggest the wine pairing should get more explanations by the waiters, especially for non-experts like myself!

Beautiful courtyard.
Attentive service.
Delicious food.
We were taken on chef's wonderful journey with veg, fish and meat. 6 courses melted away in your mouth.
great wine to match the courses.
I can highly recommend to visit, as romantic dinner for two or in a larger group.
try and book the courtyard before it gets too cold.
We will. x

I went for the wine pairing to go alongside the set 7 course tasting menu. The staff were fantastic, going into lots of detail about each wine and why they were paired with each course. The chef presented each dish, which is a nice touch. The food was very good for the cost. The outside area is very nice when it's warm.

Great food. They put a lot of thought into the veggie menu, which isn’t always the case at restaurants. The mains would rival any meat dish! We had 8 courses and were stuffed by the end. Really friendly staff and good atmosphere.

Dinner there was a real treat. We did had requested ahead of time for one vegetarian meal and the other went with the regular menu. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed every single bite. Each course had something special about it and looked beautiful. We also did the wine pairing which was great and did not feel “too boozy”. Great selection and glass size. Staff and service was great. We appreciated the info received for each course and wine. The restaurant also felt very clean and safe and we appreciated the steps they took to make us feel “safe” at times like these, such as staff masks and hand sanitizing of guests and serving staff upon our arrival. Overall a great find and we will certainly be back.

Original and well worth the visit here. It’s a tasting menu with each course explained by the chef. 7 courses. Really enjoyed the originality of the restaurant. Only small gripe was the wine choice was a bit pricey for what it was BUT this was minor. Really do go and try it is a lovely evening

The dishes at Casa Fofo are very well thought out and the combination of ingredients create experiences I’ve never had before. The food was memorable, service was excellent and the restaurant is full of character. I thought that it’s a nice touch that each chef brings out their dish to the table and explains what it is. Definitely a new favourite. Will return and recommend to others.

We had a really fantastic meal at Casa Fofo, after enjoying the food from here as Cook at Home meals during lockdown. Everything was elegant and beautifully presented, with amazing flavours and unusual combinations and never a case of style over substance. The aged dairy cow meat course was the most flavoursome piece of beef we had ever tasted. The little petit fours after dessert were a lovely finish to the meal. Friendly service from the waitresses and the chefs. Only criticism is that it would be good to have a few slightly less expensive wine options to choose from (pretty much all the wines on the list were £39 per bottle). Thank you - we will be back!

This was my third time sining at Casa Fofo - and the first one after the post-lockdown reopening. As with the other two times, the food was outstanding. All the courses were inventive and thoughtfully cooked. I particularly enjoyed the skilful use of fermented ingredients in unexpected ways.
The wine list is unexpected and interesting, rather than the usual mainstream labels. My partner took the wine pairing and all wines were natural and organic, which is highly appreciated and a refreshing option.
The entire team (in the kitchen and front of house) us very friendly, informal and kind. The COVID-19 safety measures taken were also highly appreciated. Can't recommend this place enough and we'll surely be back.

Do make sure to turn up exactly on time, as they need to time the dishes properly.
