Lyle’s is a clean, quiet, and serene space offering lunch and dinner, as well as a drop in coffee bar. The minimalist design of the space makes the venue the ideal backdrop for any occasion. Lyle's was awarded a Michelin star in 2015.
Saturday: 12:00 - 23:00
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
Disappointed food is ok to poor , some glimpses of ability but overall not awesome . service is mixed pace of delivery disjointed . years ago when competition was limited in the area it built a reputation feel heavily trading on bygone days
On a trip over to London from Australia Lyles was the top of my list of restaurants to visit. I can definitely recommend it was a fantastic dinner and a great evening. Awesome place!!!
Amazing food, place and service! We love every single minute and bite of our lunch today. Even the salad was unforgettable In presentation and taste, and for me that says everything!
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.
Really good food and drinks at Lyles. We had to wait a tiny bit for service but we were well informed about what was on offer and what the food and each dish was like.
The cost was moderate and I want to go again.
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.
Excellent. Recommend very highly. Lovely service, good food and nice dining room
Loved the whole experience. Food was amazing - fresh , innovative and great flavours. Our waiter , Charlie, was awesome -very engaging and attentive.
Didn’t like being ignored at the bar; but had a great time nonetheless.
The food was absolutely exceptional and the service was excellent.
The Vegetarian menu was extremely well balanced and delicious. Engaging and helpful staff.
Some dishes were spectacular, others poor.
A charge of £12 for 2 slices of cheese was far too expensive
Visit every time we are in London - incredible, clean flavors & exception wine pairings....affordable Michelin star dining
Service could be better, wasn't enough staff to number of customers.
Great Food, great staff. I missed a wine pairing to the set menu.
The waitress solved it in a great way.
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.
Love the place!! Love the grilled mussels!
Delicious, creative cooking with friendly, attentive staff.
Straight, classy food. Extraordinary smoked eel and duck-toast with damson jam that I will remember many months from now. Enough here to justify any foodie traipsing from afar!
Place itself feels stripped back and maybe even Scandi - perfect as a lunch canteen but if I was being harsh, personally, maybe slightly sparse as evening spot. Killer food, great service and beautiful surrounding but - for me at least - more of a day-time place.
If you're thinking about booking but uncertain... Just do it
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will return! Inventive, seasonal meal.
Just amazing - the most delicious food and lovely friendly and knowledgable service. You can't get round the slightly super cool industrial decor but the warmth of everything else compensates fantastically.
The restaurant was a bit quieter than I expected for Thursday lunch. The service was excellent. The menu was a bit too unusual so I found it difficult to pick but the food was all really delicious. I felt that simpler descriptions perhaps would be better.
We were recommended to have 2 small plates each which I felt was not enough... I am not a huge eater but was hungry an hour or so later. I would suggest at least 3 each or lots of bread!
Great service, nice ambience however the interiors are pretty bare and not that peculiar. The food was pretentious was missing the texture and punch to make it great and an exclusive experience.
We had heard excellent reports and were expecting very good things of Lyles but ultimately it was one of the more disappointing meals I have had. The fish was cold and accompanied by odd ingredients that did not work as a package and the approach to cooking of mutton left a tough, sinewy piece of meat. Dessert was excellent though. Service was also excellent and they noted our reaction to the food and therefore provided some complementary cheese which was appreciated. From all the good things I have heard I choose to believe this was just an aberration in terms of the menu but it did leave us somewhat disappointed.
The food was outstanding, delicately thoughtful and an absolute treat. Great service too! Although on the pricey side for a charity worker, I highly highly recommend!
Wonderful! Having read mixed reviews about this relatively new place, my expectations were frankly set low. However, the restaurant didn't disappoint at all!
Chefs needs some really good skills and great quality produce to be able to serve one ingredient on a plate. And the team at Lyle's managed it very well! Four very seasonal dishes were fresh and full of flavour. The portion size is spot on: one of the few restaurants where you don't feel bloated after having a set menu.
Room with minimalistic decor felt light and pleasant. Our waiter was very friendly and kindly explained every dish.
Thank you, we'll be back!
Excellent meal with a couple of standout dishes. The ambience was great, a nice relaxed atmosphere, superb fresh produce. An excellent modern 1 Michelin star option if like me you prefer relaxed instead of a more fussy, white-tablecloth type of place.
went for lunch - food chosen off a la carte menu, each dish was spectacular (specially the fresh peas dish which was out of this world). Definitely worth a visit. Will be coming back soon.
Overrated, overpriced and poor service!
Simply the best!
It is hard to explain how excellent Lyle's is. Brilliant yet communicative food. Best products. Extremely intelligent chef. Superb wines. One of the best restaurants in London!
Not worthy of a Michelin Star. Main dish of suckling kid killed by too much garlic. And an awful wine list filled with trendy biodynamic wines which all have a very distinctive taste. if you find it unpleasant there'll be little for you to drink.
They need to sharpen up in the kitchen, bin the no-choice dinner menu and broaden the wine list..
Wonderful experience, as always
Very disappointed experience
Mixed feelings about my lunch at Lyle's . Possibly trying to "push the envelope" a bit too much for my liking, as the place lacked in cosiness and warmth . To be fair possibly not the best place for a lunch get together with new mums and their baby!
Fantastic meal at Lyle's - food was excellent as always and a really well judged menu. We had a lovely evening though service was a little slow at times - perhaps the waiting staff were distracted by the presence of Ralph Fiennes at a nearby table...
Great cooking as usual but music FAR TOO LOUD and quite unnecessary at lunchtime.
The second time we asked for it to be turned down the waitress pulled a face as if to say "if the music's too loud, you're too old!"
I went to minibar some years ago for tapas and found it to be a nice place. Now it's transformed into a full-on bar yet still tries to maintain a restaurant component. I went for the Cher Champagne Brunch and was very very disappointed. If any of the food was prepared in-house, I'd be surprised. Pastries were stale and dull, chaffing dishes were full of grease-and-cheese laden fare. Hash brown potatoes was more greasy brown mush covered in melted cheddar than potatoes. Everything tasted the same - mediocre at best. The music was at a volume you'd expect around midnight rather than around 11am. I know this was a music-themed brunch, but not being able to hold a conversation over the music is a problem.
