Mexican
Madera at Treehouse London sits at the intersection of elevated Mexican cuisine and experiential dining. As the little sister to Los Angeles based Toca Madera, this ingredient-forward concept is built for the bustling London diner. Active throughout the day and primed to hit another gear at night, Madera offers unique interpretations of Mexican food and cocktails served across breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. As the sun sets so do the lights, but everything else rises - energy, music, expectations. The experience is completely chameleonic - shape-shifting for each meal period while highlighting authentic Mexican flavour complemented by London's best view.

Found hair in the food which ruined our appetite to finish our meal. The restaurant discounted the cost of the dishes served and assured us they will investigate the matter further.

Really disappointed with Madera.The interiors were lovely, but the music was a bit questionable and incredibly loud at times.

The menu is not particularly cheap, but the food resembled the likes of TGI/Wahaca and while one member of our party had her main delivered, the other 2 of us were left waiting over 20 minutes for our food to arrive.

Disappointed as I had heard good things but the food could be improved massively.

The food is much smaller than one would expect and the tequila prawns basically arrive on a pizza.
Completely surprised me!
Views incredible.
Overvalued for pizza and tacos are tiny!

Not an ideal experience - arrived with a booking and was seated in the very corner of the bar, behind a pillar in front of the section where all the condiments were kept for the waiters to grab and give to customers (i.e. not an actual seat). A different member of staff was surprised to see me sat there, she quizzed me as to whether I had a booking and then asked if that was where the other staff had seated me (perhaps it would have been more appropriate to ask your colleague who seated me?)

Despite this I wasn’t moved to a different seat (there were a number of free seats that weren’t filled and it was an hour from closing time). Of course, because this wasn’t actually a seat, I kept getting forgotten about: my cocktail only came out half an hour later and only after I’d received my food, and it took a while to get service in the first place. Food underwhelming and stodgy. Cocktail was messy and arrived dripping all over the table. Not enjoyable for the price. The views are truly stunning though!

Food was inedible. At some point we had to send the salad back not because it was not tasty but because it was so salty that it was a torture to eat. Luckily the waiter took it off the bill. My friend could jot finished any of her 4 meals. Frankly this was worse than MacDonald’s and then the prices are simply horrendous. This is a shame as music was great and the atmosphere was really lovely. The chef should be fired!

Food average, service was okay, our waiter was attentive.
Wevhad booked this place to celebrate a very special birthday, and wanted to be able to converse and catch up with our friends. We couldn’t talk, had to shout to hear each other, as the music was so loud! Had to request for it to be lowered, but didn’t happen. Felt as if it was a nightclub without the dance floor!!!

The staff were very friendly but we waited 40 minutes for drinks, twice. We actually only had 2 drinks in the 3 hours were there based on the lack of service. The food was nice but over priced. The view was incredible. And the whole vibe was lovely. But the service time let the whole place down. As mentioned, the waiter was lovely, but seemed very overwhelmed and mentioned he was working 7am-1am which seems absurd. They did give us a free drink at one point, but by then we were over the whole evening.

Great spot, amazing views, but avoid on the weekend. Kitchen clearly can't cope, we waited 1h30 for food, and was overcooked. We have been before during the week, and service was great and food arrived promptly and was delicious!

The atmosphere was great. It truly is an amazing restaurant with a great vibe, but the food was actually quite bad except for the desert. Both me and my guest felt sick the next day, it was that bad. So, I would only recommend going for a drink and starters maybe.

Great views and service! Such a friendly waitress from California, she was tip top on service. Very good mezcal margaritas and food, especially the churros! Only disappointing course was flatbread with tequila prawns, could barley taste the tequila flavor and too much like a pizza which when doing Mexican didn’t really have feels for. But a personal opinion!

Amazing atmosphere and excellent cocktails. Food was good, there wasn’t a particular dish that stood out but then with Mexican I guess it’s all sharing and tapas style. The vibe was amazing and great views of London.

Tasty food and attentive service. Nice setting, but some may find the restaurant too loud. A few of the menu items are bizarrely expensive (£14+ for two very small tacos).

Twice they
Forgot to bring. Food , told they were taking tacos off bill for bad service , yet They took fish tacos off but added an in ordered steak ( x2),
Asked if we wanted desert when half our food wasn’t delivered , then denied they forgot . Table behind us was table for 4 , with added chair to make 5 , who then was back to back with me . ( I shouldn’t have to deal with other tables issues if they allowed go Extend , go ahead but don’t make it my problem ) .
Management , kept trying to push it back on me , we didn’t forget about the food (
Twice )but had no reason why service was slow .

I’m a big surprised as I’ve been there a few times and this is first time from start to finish there were problems

We had an amazing evening at Madera treehouse. Got a table right next to the window. The food was amazing and enjoyed the live DJ. We went a bit early 6:30 and happy we did so as it got more busy around 8pm. Have already recommended to friends and will definitely go back. A bit on the pricey side but I feel the value overall justifies. Thanks for having us
