Perfect for lunch
Inventive, delicious food and lovely upstairs dining area. Highly recommended.
Sorry, but portion sizes were tiny, I wanted to laugh out loud when the ‘sharing’ bream dish was presented to us- all of a teaspoonful. This is like that ridiculous trend a few years ago for Nouveau Cuisine. I think this will not last. Over £100 for 2 people with a couple of glasses of wine each. Sorry you need to up your portion sizes, to avoid clientele going away feeling ripped off, like we did. If i can say anything positive, the Vinho Verde was nice, and some flavours good, but as stated not enough. Just stop trying to be hip And trendy and concentrate on portion sizes that are not baby- food sizes!
The food here was really high quality, creative and beautifully put together. There wasn't a single dish that was anything less than delicious. Service was really nice - friendly without being intrusive. Highly recommend.
Expensive in comparison to other places in the area, but the food was incredible, homemade everything!
Amazing food, well balanced, tasty and inventive. Ordered 2 starters, 6 share plates and 2 desserts between 4 which was about right. Cod was a standout but could not really fault any of the other dishes. Great value for money for the quality of food. Would definitely go back given the chance.
We were so wonderfully surprised by the incredible cooking and menu. Totally a delight and theservuce was immaculate too. Definitely will go again and recommend to all my friends
With such high reviews, we expected more from the food but otherwise, no surprises in terms of budget and service was excellent ! Our group found the menu vocabulary somewhat pretentious and needed to ask the waiter for a lot of explanations. Still one of the dishes served was dissapointingly different to his verbal description. Some dishes were outstanding and creative while others were unseasonal (lamb dish very hearty for a summer menu). The guys in our group weren't too pleased with paying a fiver for a can of beer.
Unfortunately couple on next table were so so loud but food was lovely. Acoustics need looking at.
Lupins is our go-to for dinner with friends at the moment. Sharing plates are social lubricants! Friendly staff, elegant plates and great wine list.
Lovely food prepared in unusual ways with skill and creativity. Really nice waitresses and a pretty upstairs dining room.
Second visit to this lovely restaurant. Excellent food and good service
Went there to celebrate my birthday with friends and happy to be back in this restaurant with a new menu.
We tasted the white bean crostini with a strong anchovy and lemon salsa and this set up the tone of the cooking. Cornish crab thermidor is very satisfying but the cod crusted polenta is a little pale in flavour . The grilled bavette served rare with an inspired argentinian blend of coriander , parsley and garlic is a delight when the crispy quail needs your fingers to deal with but the great surprise was the sweet: a dark chocolate ganache with sesame and sallted caramel which shows flair and passion- WEe drank with all that a very good Vino Verde and finish this celebration with a sweet wine from Cadillac: Chateau la Passonne 2005, an other discovery....Would like to live near it....
This is my second visit to Lupins. The sharing plates are both imaginative and delicious. The food was spread out so that we didn’t have everything served altogether. A really pleasant dining experience and the staff a delight. We will definitely continue to go there.
A great restaurant with fabulous small plates of food
The starters we nice - the highlight was the deep fried spring onions which were delicious. The cod was also nice but could have been a bit larger. Good choice of wines and a nice buzz. Our only complaint was the table were very small — by the time the dishes wine cooler water etc was placed on then it was dangerously over filled
Amazing food and friendly atmosphere! Love this place so much! The menu is changing all the time and it is the best in terms of sharing and variety! Great wine list as well!
Awesome food and space. It was a very hot day though so the room got quite hot and sweaty. Tiny point though... will recommend to friends and family for sure
This is one of the best restaurants in London. the food is delicious with un usual flavours
A real gem of a place. The tapas-size dishes are imaginative and top quality, and the staff are friendly and helpful. I shall be finding excuses to go back.
Took my food fanatic mother in law, who sat at the bar looking at the tiny the kitchen and was enthralled for two hours watching the speed of detailed care in the preparation and loving the range of tastes in the brilliant small dishes. ML super happy, and great eating to boot.
This was the second time I had been to Lupins and I was so excited to show my friends who were all impressed. The food and wine were gorgeous and the atmosphere was lovely. It's also very affordable!
Simply delicious, innovative food that shows love for ingredients and delivers pleasure.
Second visit- just as good as the last one. Pigeon dish was excellent- thank you 😊.
Tasty, well balanced food, good dish presentation. Just off iron square so you can have a conversation.
As ever quite delicious food - all very creative and tasty. Great price point and interesting wines.
Amazing meal. Creative and delicious food. Friendly and very efficient staff/service. Will be coming back.
Excellent food and great, friendly service. Really accommodating of gluten-free requirement.
I love this place! Delicious, fresh, incredibly tasty sharing plates in tiny restaurant in trendy Southwark.
Simple, clean, fun with lovely caring staff. A must for anyone who loves seriously good food.
Charming local eaterie with small plates and charming staff. Well-priced wines. Exquisite food. A true original.
Really excellent food and a delicious lunch. The chefs working in the kitchen (behind the bar) were more than happy to discuss the menu, where ingredients were sourced and options for gluten and dairy free. The food we enjoyed had some really great original (or at least less often seen) flavour combinations which were all delicious. The waitress who served us was really helpful regarding our wine choices and the whole atmosphere was friendly & relaxed. A fantastic place to share a late Friday lunch - we'll be going again, soon I hope!
Food not as good as the previous time, but there were some interesting flavours. Very good value for money. Wine list is due for a thorough review and change.
Amazing food and wine.
Lupins is a joy - lovely set up, superb food and great service.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent.
Hard to fault the place .
Excellent food and lovely staff
Very relaxed atmosphere. Quite noisy at times - there are no soft materials to absorb noise and there was a large shrill group at one table. Loved the small dishes to share - crab Thermidor and lamb koftas in particular. Interesting wine list.
Tasty modern British sharing plate options. Deceptively simple dishes you feel like you could make at home, but you know the reality is that you won't come close to replicating!
Crab thermidor was stand out, but all the dishes used great quality, seasonal ingredients to give classic but modern European cuisine.
The waiting staff were excellent.
Enjoyed visiting Lupins with my mum last weekend. The upstairs space is a great place to sit and our servers were really lovely, efficient people. Good wine, and a good small plates menu BUT the kitchen sent out each dish one at a time. The pace of our meal was far too slow and there were notable gaps between plates - which I really wished could have come out at least two at a time. I didn't love sharing 6 shoots of asparagus and then a small fillet of sea bass one at a time. I think almost every dish had seen some form of batter or frying too, which made the whole dinner rather greasy and spoilt what could have been some fresh, well balanced plates otherwise.
The desert ganache, however was a triumph. I'll probably return just for that. Incredibly rich, thick chocolate ganache with a slightly over-salted caramel that won me over wholeheartedly.
I'd be kinder to lupins but with Eliot's nearby, I think I would probably choose to return there unless pace is improved and plates are better balanced.
Great food, very good service. Would recommend it and would happily go back.
