We visited on a Saturday afternoon for the bottomless cocktails, they were great!
The food was lovely and great value for the deal.

The service was fantastic! Thanks for a great afternoon.

Perfect place for a date, really warm and friendly service, it was a really beautiful building which was classy without being pretentious.
The gentleman that served us drinks was a proper host, felt very welcome. Great experience, little pricy for what you got though.

Unlike many of London's ubiquitous modern European restaurants, Michael Nadra's menu is refreshingly distinctive in both variety and taste.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food + service was very warm and welcoming.
Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys great food in a nice setting - you'll feel you've had an evening out without any pretence or stuffiness :)

The restaurant is set in the lovely location. With not many people there it feels quiet and relaxing which I like. The service was good either, can't complain.
However, I found the menu choice to be very limited and the food simply bland. My main dish (seabass) was lacking flavour and didn't stand up to the price. The dessert was good but again nothing special. I found the restaurant to be very overpriced for the food quality and ambience they offer.

Valentine’s Day. Set menu had some terrific highs, but also some disappointing lows. The tuna sashimi was exceptional. The beef carpaccio also extremely well prepared, a real treat. But the welsh lamb was a disappointment. The meat was thinly sliced and tender but it had very little flavour. It was served with a fried cylinder that reminded me of cheap buffets. Fortunately, the passion fruit tart was very good and prepared to the perfect consistency. But I was left with an unpleasant burnt aftertaste which I am sure the chef had not intended. So all in all, this was sub par for a restaurant with a Michelin star.

As ever, we had an excellent meal. Since it was Valentine's Day there was a 4 course taster menu, proceeded by a glass of champagne. Each course was better than the next - beautifully presented and wonderful and interesting food!

Went for Valentine’s Day menu. Ambience and service were both very good. Unfortunately food wasn’t great. Really disappointed with lamb main - wasn’t seasoned at all. Maybe because it was Valentine’s Day.

The cooking is done by someone who knows what they are doing
Waiter charming but would not serve outside this is the punters choice not because it causes inconvenience to the staff
The delicious food would be helped by a fixed price lunch menu or bigger portions or both

As an American in London this is my go-to restaurant when I'm burnt out on pub food and want a lighter, trendier and elevated cuisine, with clean/fresh ingredients and preparation. This spot is reminiscent of the best restaurants in New York or Los Angeles. His fish dishes never disappoint and his meat-mains are flavored packed (usually rich), plus amazing vegan options and ever-changing seasonal menu, and my British boyfriend's favorite Sunday roast in town!

Extremely friendly and accommodating staff, VERY DOG FRIENDLY, best Lychee martini in London (or any cocktail you might want the bartender to create for you). Can't beat the 2-for-1 cocktail deal during happy hour, every day of the week!

About 6 barstools at the narrow bar counter (not great for eating, but perfect for drinking/happy hour), plus bar lounge/couch seating (my preferred, because it's comfy and you can watch all the comings a super cool brick cave/tunnel, which was originally used as a horse tunnel to the Camden stables.

Don't be deterred if you poke your head in and it looks empty, this place is worth the visit! And be sure to have the Chocolate Fondant dessert... it's like dying and going to heaven!

Entre la vie trépidante de Camden Town et la tranquillité de Primrose Hill, nous avons découvert au bord du canal le restaurant de Michael Nadra !
Un bel établissement dans un décor raffiné avec une belle carte des vins du monde qui nous a proposé un menu spécial réveillon original et bien exécuté.
Il ne manquait au tableau que la précision du service à la française pour faire de cette soirée un moment inoubliable ...

The food was the best I’ve ever had in my entire life & I’m 54yrs & well traveled.

The sea bass was to die for, it’s was my fiancé & I first year engagement anniversary, the staff & Michael himself were only to accommodating.

We will definitely be returning here very soon.

We had to wait around 25 minutes until we got our drinks after arrived, and when the drinks finally arrived one of them was wrong, so again we had to send it back, even we got that drink on the house, it’s too much syrup so my husband couldn’t finish it.

The food was very good, unfortunately when they gave us the warm bread rolls they were very burnt, we asked for some non burnt one, again it was quite burnt too and they said that’s the best they could do.

We went to this restaurant for many occasions and each time was very good but unfortunately definitely not this time. Hope they would take our experience this time seriously and improve for the future.

We tried this restaurant when it first opened, two or three times, but somehow hadn’t been for years. We’d found the food nice but not exciting and we don’t go out a lot. We went with friends this week and had the tasting menu. The food was both delicious and beautifully presented, the combinations were clever without being over fussy, and the wine choices were good, interesting and not, mostly, ones which any of us had tasted before. The portions, both of food and of wine, were very generous - perhaps too generous considering the number of courses! We just about managed to finish everything, being rather greedy. We are all looking forward to going again as we had a really wonderful evening and we would all thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

What can I say apart from this has to be one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Great atmosphere, wonderful food and service. The house wines are delicious and the Venison was out of this world. Can’t wait to return on our next visit to London.

My starter (venison sausage) was quite dry, but the main course (yellowfin tuna) was very good. Service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant seems to have a policy of sitting diners opting for the Open Table special menu in a room apart; we were on our own in an initially quite cold environment. This policy is questionable and should be made clear when booking.
