Excellent experience as usual. Great service and good food. The sauce accompanying the seabass was not to my wife’s taste, but everything else was really good. Special mention for the cheese platter...and the wine, of course.

So good to get in after and before the lock downs. Food is amazing as always.
Service 2nd to none. The compulsory barriers between tables is a shame but they have adapted well to this current situation even with a covered & heated outside dining area.
Delicious food and wine in impeccable presentations. Can't wait to go again.

Excellent as ever. A real shame that it has to close again so soon, but at least I understand the takeaway service will operate for a few days more prior to Xmas.

An oasis in the pandemic. Socially distanced tables separated by tasteful plastic screens. Fixed price lunch but a good choice for all the courses. Excellent service,well paced. The truffles and the Turkish delight rounded off a splendid,relaxed Sunday lunch.

We had an excellent lunch David, Melania, Voula and Mattias looked after us very well. I had Taleggio arancini as a starter, absolutely great. My partner had Crab Ravioli excellent. For our mains we had hte steak with snails and roast guinea fowl, ending with Warm chocolate mousse and salted caramel tartlet. All beautifully cooked, presented and served. David gave us a little taster treat of special parmesan cheeses. We will definitely return.

Wonderful as ever.

Medlar remains amongst the best of the best in London, and the perfect place to lose an afternoon or evening. Wonderful food in a delightful setting, perfect hospitality, and a spectacular wine list to boot. Best of all, the value remains truly incredible- almost unbeleivable. Thank you David and team.

An excellent value three course lunch of Michelin standard. Excellent staff, nice ambience and a plus is the £10 corkage at lunchtime. Elegant Covid-19 partitions. My go to restaurant in London.

All the food is delicious here, I would eat everything. But you do find dishes that you would not find elsewhere and that is why we go.

Excellent news that Medlar is open again; it was much missed during the last lockdown, although the takeaway service is also first rate. It really is one of the very best restaurants in London and why it has not been given its Michelin star back is beyond me.

Dining at Medlar s is always an amazing experience. The staff is very friendly and experienced. They know how to advise you on food and wine. The quality of the products is outstanding. The dishes are succulent. The chef makes any dish taste fabulously. They set up a heated terrace for up to 6 people. We are going back this Sunday for a pre Christmas family celebration!

Where shall we go after second lockdown to cheer ourselves up? Let's go back to Medlar. And it was wonderful; knockout raw tuna with tempura prawns and my partner's crab ravioli equally so; halibut for her and wild sea bass for me cooked interestingly and to perfection; and a refreshing lemon grass and ginger jelly with pomegranite and lime granita to finish. Sommelier helped us choose an excellent Californian chardonnay. Social distancing not good for the restaurant balance sheet but for the selfish customer it's rather nice!

Excellent evening at Medlar. Food goes from strength to strength and front of house staff are a delight. Wine by the glass (with help from the sommelier) was excellent paring with our food.
