I had the most incredible evening at the Coal Office. The food was exquisite, and the chefs took the utmost care with every single detail. Staff are amazing, fun and lively vibe. I recommend sitting on the high seats so you can be close to the action.

Great environment, we were in the restaurant and had more space than those in the bar. Loved the food - light, tapas type food. The bread was gorgeous and warm.
Wine is expensive but we got the cheapest and it was lovely

Excellent service. Greeted very warmly, sat at the bar and given Complimentary Arak and a Broccoli dish. Both delicious. Sat in a lovely spot on the water side. The restaurant is gorgeous and has a lovely atmosphere. Amazing service from Andreas, who practically ordered all our food, on our request. He made exceptional choices and is just so nice! The food was flavourful, plentiful and beautifully presented. I particularly enjoyed the octopus, aubergine tartar and Tahini ice cream but everything was delicious!
Thankyou again for a lovely evening!

Food was multicoloured and looked great, but all a little bland.

Definitely not worth the inflated prices.

This place is amazing. The food and flavours knock your socks off. Nice varied menu to suit all tastes.
The service is also very good - professional, friendly, and they ensure you don't order too much.
Sitting near the open kitchen is also very interesting.
We were there for lunch but will definitely go back in the evening, when the place is a bit more lively and possibly there is an even wider selection on the menu.
Highly recommended.

I was eating on my own and was pleased to get a place at the counter. It’s great entertainment —so lively! The chefs are efficient, good humored, warm, and welcoming. I was treated like royalty or rather like treasured family. I received little extras — mushroom appetizer and a little refreshing grapefruit and anise cocktail. The food was wonderful. Delicious broccoli—crispy and flavorful — and kingfish with cauliflower. Small plates but so much food! My second time here. I love this place. Oh and great music as well.

Amazing food, particularly if you're vegetarian (although we weren't it was great to have some many interesting vegetarian dishes rather than the same tired old options). Can't say enough about the food and how good it was. Worth noting though it's a reasonably loud place, all hard surfaces, so not for those looking for a romantic meal or who suffer in loud spaces.

Great different food that i have been wanting to try for months. Took my boyfriend there for his birthday and they printed Happy Birthday on the menu which was a nice touch. Waiter was great and attentive without being too much - however i would have liked to been asked if we would like to pour the wine or if we were happy with him doing it.
He gave good advise on how much food to order which was super helpful and spot on. Will be back
