Great, cosy venue with good music and good cocktails.

Food is very average. Mains are not too bad but the charcuterie platter was very poor quality.

Music is very decent and the staff is helpful.

Great little Swedish cafe lovely food, great place, service very friendly but sometimes not focused. Overall if you enjoy Swedish fine food this is a great place and the home made breads are fantastic. Would highly recommend.

I love the ambiance in Lisa’s and the food is even better. They recently changed the menu and the crab pasta and ceviche is to die for!!!!! So much so I went back the following day for some more!

Lovely atmosphere due to live music. Lisa’s is such a cute little restaurant and you actually feel like you’re in Sweden. Perfect location for an evening with friends!

Bit underwhelming. Service was pretty slow (required quite a lot of prompting) and food was just ok. Lunch options were v pricey compared to the breakfast menu for very similar size/quality dishes.

Left disappointed when we were rudely asked to vacate our table ahead of agreed time. An abrupt end to a good night. We left feeling a bit shell shocked.

Very lovely place and the staff is very sweet and friendly. One major issue though is that you don't have one wait staff attending your table which would be fine except during the course of dinner you are asked almost on a constant basis by several different people how things are on repeat. Basically only a few minutes would pass before another person would ask "how is your meal?" Or "How is your drink?" I counted 5 different people that attended our table. It made conversation with my fellow dinner very very disruptive and also made it seem like they were rushing us to turn tables. They were very nice about it but just not the best to spend your whole dining experience saying "yes, very good thanks" every few minutes.

Loved everything about Lisa’s. Nice vibe and the noise wasn’t too bad, perfect for Dinner where you have loads to discuss, as you can actually hear each other 😉

Food was great and the service delightful.

I went 2 Saturdays in a row and last night the food was cold, tasteless and the mussels were not fresh.
I was a bit disappointed.
It’s usually a place that combines good food and a good ambiance, but yesterday it was just about the ambiance unfortunately.

Gorgeous food, great service. The stool seating near the bar was a little uncomfortable and tight for dinner for four and the live music which started at around 8.30, although lovely, it was a little hard to talk over and hear what each other was saying. Having said that I would definitely go back.

The portion sizes were ridiculously small for brunch, and it was not value for money - even for London. Do not recommend.

Ambiance excellent, food is consistently good. Staff a bit all over the place - forgot orders, charged for 3 more cocktails than ordered and barely apologised when pointed out. Have been coming for some time and feel that service gets worse over time which doesn’t quite match price point - even in a London context. Otherwise a nice little restaurant/bar

I’ve been to Lisa’s twice. It’s a fun place but both times the over priced food has not been great. This time I had the tuna and it was off (tasted very “fishy” and not fresh) with vegetables that were over cooked and over seasoned. On the last occasion I went, I was in a group of 4 and my main course never even arrived! My advice - go to the bar and enjoy the music and atmosphere but eat elsewhere beforehand

Such a cool and great place. A hidden gem really. To be honest I was thinking to skip going there because the area is not the “prettiest” one. But got wowed.
As a tourists we order number of things they suggested and everything was delicious. And we are picky when it comes to food.
Drinks with herrings are great too.
In addition to food and drinks, service was simply fantastic.
Two thumps up. Would go back anytime.

Found this restaurant by accident when going to nearby event and really enjoyed a quick meal sitting outside. Returned for early dinner inside and left before the live music started. Efficient, simple food served very well and great staff. Will definitely return.

Great food and super friendly staff. Inside can get very loud though, so don't pick this place if you want a quiet conversation (but you can sit outside where it is quieter and where they give you blankets if it gets chilly).

Very nice and cozy place.
The music was loud , so it is not really the place to catch up but more to listen nice music and dance
