The food was, on the whole, very good. (The torched sea bass was delicious.) But the service was unacceptably slow. We had booked for 8pm and arrived very shortly after 8. No trace of our food for over 1 hour. We were warned by the waitress that service would be slow - but 1 hour is far too long to wait (even when we were given complimentary olives after about 45 minutes.) We did not dare order a sweet having observed people at the next table apparently waiting for the best part of an hour after their main course before their sweets appeared.

Lovely restaurant/ bar, it’s a little gem. Small and intimate. The decor is beautiful done.

Services was great and will definitely go there again.

Both myself and my family enjoyed it very much.

Overall lovely with really good food and wine list . Two slight issues though: we were sat by the sliding doors at the front and our party were cold - and then a bit cold even in the middle of the room , where we were located. On a windy or cold day, there seems to be drafts everywhere, so not particularly comfortable for guests and be aware in winter. Personally I found the only veggie option on the menu (main course) to be a little boring / bland, but my wife (also a veggie) was very happy with it. A couple of veggie options might be better in the future, as there seems to be more and more of us now...?
Otherwise really lovely.

We decided to try this restaurant having seen good reviews. We visited for Sunday lunch which was probably a mistake as lots of children so rather noisy. Service was slow to start and we felt invisible. My friend tried to order a beer but her first choices from the short list were not available, even though the brewery for one of them is literally 2 minutes from the restaurant! I ordered a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and was advised that that was the last available glass of that wine. The food was fine. They need to improve their ordering system for drinks supplies.

I have already recommended Park's Edge Bar & Kitchen to friends and family.
The front of house manager, was so attentative, we wanted for nothing (I think I am in love).
The food was fabulous too. The fusions of English and Caribbean worked so well.

My wife and I had a great time at Park’s Edge. Attentive but not overbearing staff and excellent food. The complementary Prosecco when they found out it was our anniversary was an especially nice touch. We will definitely go again.

I booked well in advance for a Mother's Day special for the family and we were not disappointed. The starters were good especially the ham hock. The traditional roast mains were appreciated by all who had them . My husband chose the salmon and was very pleased with that. I was too full for dessert but everyone said that they were delicious.
However we all had a lovely meal. Would certainly go again!

This review is based on our last visit. The first two would have rated a four and five start. Really good! . But the last one was marked by a very poor menu with little choice. We opted for burgers..which already says a lot since burgers are fine for a 'café/restaurant', not a restaurant with excellent food ambitions. And even then the burgers were mediocre.
The lesson for prospective diners: see menu before you book. We should have done so. Incidentally, this was a Thursday and the restaurant was pretty empty. Perhaps knowing this the chef decided on a restricted menu?
To end on an upbeat note: our previous two experiences demonstrated that they can do much much better. Hope so. We need a really good restaurant in Herne Hill.

We thought the service and ambience were excellent but the food slightly disappointing - not bad, but not as good as it might have been. Certainly no wow factor. Just slightly too expensive to go back to on a regular basis for the quality and variety we would like. Having said that the table service was excellent, friendly and attentive without being overbearing; that's worth a lot. On balance if we lived very close by we might use it more than we are likely to. So we would suggest close locals try it out a few times.

We had a lovely meal and very attentive service. It was disappointing that the restaurant was not more full and I think that pricing is a little high which will put people off and a three course set menu deal will pull in the punters which is what is needed in my humble opinion!

I booked a table for 4 for lunch and had to give my credit card details which would have been charged with 10 GBP per head in case of a no show.
What I didn't know is that they don't do lunch but something like brunch just with a very limited menu.
There was just a very small menu with 3 main courses. All of us 4 went for a burger as there were no proper choices. The burger was ok, but not great and the meat was rather dry.
I don't quite get, where those raving reviews come from as the food we had was just average. The place was half empty. Even if this would be a brunch place the menu would be way too small. If I remember correctly there were less than 10 items on it incl. 2 cocktails.

This is our fourth time. Some dishes and service is good even very good. But sometimes they are not. Cocktails are always v good and the staff are friendly. But in the end consistency is a mark of a good restaurant. Hope it can achieve this.

Absolutely lovely venue, beautifully decorated and the food was exceptional. The service was a little slow at times with staff not always on the look out for customers trying to get their attention, but when they made it over they were so friendly that this was easy to forgive. Highly recommend for a Sunday roast, especially the vegetarian wellington which was sublime.

We arrived quite late, about 9:20, but were looked after perfectly. The food was different and delicious. Very impressed as a place with a bit of originality.
They didn’t charge us for a bottle of wine, and wouldn’t respond when I contacted them to correct the error. So a very good value meal.

Park's Edge is an absolute gem of a restaurant. The menu is a hybrid of caribbean and modern european flavours but with a unique twist and no matter what you choose, the taste is amazing every single time we've visited. The owners and their team are so welcoming and make a point of ensuring every diner is satisfied and this makes a huge difference to the dining experience.
Great wine choices and delicious cocktails are available with wine tasting events, poetry readings and even live music to boot. There is nothing about this restaurant that I do not like. Well worth a visit!
