    Found Lyle’s through the world best restaurants dining website. It is highly rated amongst other TOP 50 World Best restaurants but the dishes are pale in comparison with other world best restaurants. The dishes are ordinary, it doesn’t wow us.

    Lunch for two with four dishes, and two desserts to share... well, when we finished I was ready to start again. Delicious, tasty, light and clean flavor! Definitely to repeat. And lovely staff, too, they prepared twice our last dish (the amazing red deer) because it arrived when I was changing my little baby. Really appreciated, thanks!

    Service was very good, and we specifically liked the bread! We shared 5 plates and 2 desserts amongst the 3 of us. The butter was good enough to eat on its own. We enjoyed the food and would go back again when passing through London.

    I can just say every dishes were sour, no special cooking. The dishes were so small that we didn’t feel like eat something even we ordered 7 dishes. And actually the price are so expensive. The only good is their ingredients for the foods were very fresh. Won’t come back again

    The restaurant was very quiet when we started our meal (we were first sitting) yet other tables sometimes got their snacks before us. The menu changes daily, and sadly you cannot book on the day unless you are incredibly lucky (we booked in advance due to lack of availability). The daily menu included a couple of incredibly simple dishes, which could have still been amazing, but they did nothing special with them at all. All in all, decent experience, we finished the food, so it absolutely was not unpleasant, but it was not incredible food given the Michelin star. Expensive for what it is versus a lot of the other incredibly brilliant tasting menu style restaurants, with better food and cheaper price tag.

    The food was outstanding, but too expensive. Also, it is not a comfortable place/chair to be seating for 2h and I was in an air current so cold all the time and got sick. Not the experience I was expecting for £150 for a couple.

    For the quality and creativity of the food, it was very much worth the price. Each bite surprised and impressed. We were pleased with the menu for the evening (pumpkin whey broth, monkfish & mutton) and only wish we could go back any given day to have the same meal again! The restaurant was also very kind to accommodate minor pregnancy food restrictions without sacrificing flavor or experience. Highly recommend.

    There is nothing particularly wrong with this restaurant, however it’s astonishing to me that it was awarded a Michelin star. While the food is generally good, it’s just not of the extraordinary kind you’d expect from such a place. The ambience is not very nice - very cramped space - and the friendly service becomes rather slow and sloppy once the place gets full (we were left unattended with finished dishes for about 10 minutes more than once). Overall, a very expensive evening for what we got thus we will not be back.

    Really over-priced for what it was. The menu of 60 pounds included a tomato soup, a fish, and some pork. Did not like the pork at all. I went there because it was on the San Pellegrino list - i wonder how it ended up on it

    Had a really nice dinner. 2nd time at Lyle but first since they entered the Top 50. The place was full and buzzy, but service was fast and prompt. The food is creative and is quite "foodie" - new flavours, new herbs , but cooked traditionally. The sea trout with sea herbs was to die for.

    Good food and great philosophy for structuring the menu. However, the experience has been underwhelming for a restaurant ranked 38th in the world. The cockles were very tasty but sandy; the samphire with bottarga butter was not revolutionary and the dover sole, although fresh and nicely coocked, did not have any particular twist and could easily been served by a good restaurant down the road, there was no sparkle.

    Great location on Shoreditch High Street inside the impressive Tea Building, Lyles mixes cafe style charm and friendliness with excellent cuisine. The lunch menu is not extensive but it offers a freshly created mix of dishes suitable for all tastes. The staff were friendly and offered good insight into the dishes. The Calcot based main dish was delicious as was the Treacle Tart & Milk Ice Cream.
