Our second visit to Casa Fofo since lockdown eased; tasting menu as delicious, creative and innovative as ever, matching wines worked well, warm welcome despite the masks. Great evening out only slightly marred by noisy music which made the food and wine descriptions hard to hear from behind the masks.

We were so pleased to have discovered this gem. Came across it by chance. The food was divine - interesting, varied and beautifully presented. The staff were lovely and attentive but not overly so. We sat in the garden on a warm summer evening. It was a special night and we booked immediately to go back. I could not recommend this place more highly.

Great to see Casa Fofo back open and having such responsible social distancing measures in place for the safety of it's customers and staff.

As always the staff, food and wine were excellent. The outdoor dining space is fantastic!

Stunning. This was our first meal out after lockdown, and I'm so glad we went here, it was a really special night. Don't fill up on bread, the eight courses were more than enough, and every single one had been throughly thought through. The setting is totally unpretentious, but the food is stellar. The whipped caramelised butter that came with the sourdough is reason enough to visit on its own.

This was the menu on the night:

SNACK
Pickled potato, salted eel

FIRST COURSE
Tomato, almond, squid garum

SECOND COURSE
Mushroom, braised kohlrabi, mushroom dashi sabayon

PRE-MAIN
Cavatelli, beef paitan sauce, beef fat,

MAIN
Pork loin, egg marinated pork garum, greens, cucumber

PRE-DESSERT
Agastache frozen yoghurt, peach mousse

DESSERT
Strawberry ice cream, roasted white chocolate, sake lees parfait, lemon verbena

We were delighted to return to Casa Fofo for the first time since lock-down and find the food and service just as good as ever. We dined outside in the little garden for the first time on a warm evening and found the tasting menu and paired wines characteristically original and creative, all well explained and enthusiastically served. Booking again next week!

Great local restaurant. First meal out after lockdown and was great.
Would prefer upstairs seating as downstairs ambience is not the best.
Really great food though and that’s all that matters

This is the third time we have been and always delighted with the meal and service. Would like to say the music is not really suitable for dining. Too loud and wrong sort. Soft jazz would be better.

Fabulous food for a very reasonable price. Very interesting menu with variety of textures and flavours. Chefs genuinely interested in your feedback and worked very hard to ensure excellent quality and beautiful presentation. I probably would not recommend the wine pairing because there are too many whites. If you do go for it then perhaps some written information about the winewould be helpful before you choose

Really special evening with good service and delicious food. I recommend the wine pairing- it was really worth it even though a splurge. It was a bit over 2 hours to move through all the courses and we were perfectly full at the end (didn’t opt for any extra dishes).

A third dinner at Casa Fofo and still as good as the first. Their creative menu of different flavours and styles continues to tantalise the tastebuds with one or two standout plates each time that live long in the memory. It's a fun and friendly spot with great service and a general enthusiasm for the dining experience that makes this a real joy to look forward to. Long may it last.

I don't normally write reviews, but Casa Foto was amazing, I had read other reviews ahead of booking and had expected the food to be good. But it was so much better, amazing flavours, presentation, lovely staff , even the chef serves the food. A real surprising find in Hackney. The cooking was sublime, and could easily be served at any top end restaurant in the West End.

Just an excellent meal. Lovely food, great ambience and service. We all thoroughly enjoyed it! The only small suggestion to improve would be to widen the non-alcoholic drink selection beyond just water. A non-alcoholic beer option would be good, and certainly a choice of soft drinks. But that was a minor gripe on an otherwise near-perfect dining experience.

Everything was great, the only issue potentially was that we were on a share table in the downstairs room rather than a single table of four - having said that, that's incredibly nit-picky because everything was excellent.
