Our newest restaurant in Fitzrovia is different to anything we've done in the past. The 85 seat restaurant serves a menu with vegetables at its heart but with a fresh focus on fermentation and cooking over fire. ROVI also features a large central bar with cocktails based on seasonal spices and house shrubs, and a dynamic low-intervention wine list from small producers.

We've teamed up with farmers who are passionate about growing great produce while respecting the environment. Fruit and vegetables will be come directly from biodynamic Brambletye in Sussex, and from Organiclea, a cooperative in East London.

In the center of the room is our bar which is reservable for guests dining with us over the age or 18, or 16 if accompanied by an adult. The rest of our seating is a mixture of standalone and communal tables which can be be converted into a semi private area for up to 10 to 12 guests. To host your event in this area please contact us directly.

Absolutely delicious food, faultless. Only gripe would be that all bottles of wine/fizz were around the £40+ mark - would have appreciated some slightly more affordable options

Absolutely delicious lunch. Highly recommend the confit mushrooms and celeriac shwarma. Comfortable and cool surroundings, attentive but understated service and whilst not a cheap lunch out, worth every penny.

Delicious food, well laid out table for 5 on a corner enabling us all to chat.
I didn’t particular appreciate the slightly obsequious service (I am definitely not a “mademoiselle”) but otherwise it was efficient and friendly.

Considered good for vegan/vegetarian but food was not tasty. Some not cooked properly.. sad to have paid a high amount for very average food.
Ambience and service was great.
Would go back for a drink but not for the food.
Shame the ottolenghi name is connected to it as ottolenghi food is great!

There are interesting items on the menu but some dishes are not well-balanced, flavour wise. I love anchovy but it overwhelmed the swede dish. My recommendation would in fact be to stick with the 'nibbles' section of the menu and try the many different excellent wines they have on offer.

Wonderful service - adapted the menu for dietary requirements without fuss. Food came in perfect order. Would highly recommend it. For those with smaller appetites we had three small dishes, a nibble and one side between two of us and found it difficult to finish. But wonderful combinations of textures, flavours and colours.

The food was absolutely amazing and the service was impeccable.
Thoroughly enjoyed lunch at Rovi for a long-time-no-see get-together. Friend visiting from NYC texted me about how good the Squid kebab and beetroot fondant even on the next day.
Would defo go there again! Next time for dinner either cocktails maybe ❤️

Rovi is a fabulous place. The tables are beautiful wooden designs and this is also abundant throughout the restaurant including the toilets. Food is outstanding and so delicious that you appreciate every last morsel. The mastic ice cream was divine. You will not be disappointed. We had the Argentine red wine which was fabulous.

Busy vibrant atmosphere, plenty of room at and between the tables.
Amazing food (both meat eater and vegetarian) - really novel and delicious. Generous portions - make sure you go there hungry!
Table staff were polite and efficient. It took a little while to get to our table but that was an opportunity to savour a cocktail.

Good food. Service was a little slow. The main problem was that the gluten free options were basically just removing the bread from the dishes. Given that many of the options were dips or liquids, just removing the bread made the dishes a little underwhelming. Would not recommend to Coeliacs but otherwise a fine brunch experience.

The food was absolutely outstanding! It was my second time at the restaurant and the menu had changed a little, we were 4 and had almost all the vegetarian starters on the menu as well as the celeriac shawarma (must have) and a fish for mains, everything was delicious with elements of surprise here and there (that pepper on the herb tempuras: brilliant!). Cant wait to go back.
