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.

Interesting flavours from a great variety of ingredients. Enjoyed all the dishes we ordered; the prawns & trout in particular were cooked just right & not over cooked.
The staff were pleasant & helpful.
Will certainly go back again.

I am a huge Otto Lenghi fan and was really excited to be eating at Rovi. I have eaten at all his other restaurants and found this was not up to the same standard. It felt as if he had used up most of his ideas and was trying to invent new one's which did not really work for us. We ordered a variety of dishes and nothing stood out as special. The service could have been better - we ordered two prawn dishes and one came at the beginning and the other at the end of the meal. We were a party of 3 and were all disappointed. The decor however is great.

This will be a highlight of any visit to London or a very special evening if you live there. Not fancy but exquisite detail to all the plates, be ready to share, the menu is designed that way. 5 small plates one big enough for 3 and lovely interesting desserts. A great evening, the only picture of food I took on my week visit in London.

Different than NOPI and the Spittalfields location, in the decor, offerings and setting, ROVI did not disappoint in any area. Outstanding staff, amazing food and a reasonable bill will bring me back again--with more friends! Super simple booking through OpenTable, too!

Lively atmosphere with attentive service and explanations/recommendations. As non meat eaters there was plenty of choice and loved the 'small plate' idea. For lunch our 4 choices for 2 people was ample. Our favourite was the celeriac schwarma.

the food was great, and the waiters were very professional and friendly at the same time.
great time for a birthday evening . We chosen Rovi and Ottolenghi especially for the event, even if , as italians, we are quiet demanding concerning food. We were also in Nopi the evening before, and we can say that both are great, but the cuisine and the service we founded in Rovi was a little more "perfect"

Beautiful textures and flavour combinations. A wonderful restaurant, consistent, with some locally-sourced ingredients and many vegetarian options bursting with flavour. The only negative point is the the high noise level.

We loved the food and our fantastic waiter! The only thing was that the food came so fast we didn’t have enough time to even order a full bottle of whine, we had received our first courses before we could even finish our aperitifs.. felt a little rushed.

Portions are very small so order enough

We visited to have lunch to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday and all our expectations were met - efficient, friendly service, amazing food and great ambience! Our waitress was wonderful - I'd arranged to have a birthday message written on a dessert plate and without any prompting on the day a lit candle was also produced! A small thing to some maybe but it really finished the meal off nicely! Thank you to all for making the day a special and memorable one!

Every dish except the cheese snack were absolutely delicious. The halibut was stunning but overpriced. The Mackerel and Celeriac are star dishes. Everything with the design of the space is slightly wrong cheap light boxes definitely didn’t help.

Amazing food, great layout to the restaurant! Surprisingly easy to get a booking at the time we wanted.
The waited seemed a little anxious, and wanted us to order in a specific way which we found odd. He kept insisting certain dishes would take a very long time, but was with us within 5 minutes.
Regardless, we would come back and recommend!
