Salon is a relaxed and informal restaurant that specialises in an ever-changing seasonal Set Menu, with all the finesse and attention to detail of fine dining, but without any of the fuss.

Our weekend brunches (Saturday & Sunday daytime) are legendary, with props in The Guardian, Time Out and Harpers Bazaar to name just a few!

We have a bar space downstairs where we serve cocktails, natural wines, beers and snacks.

Upstairs in our Dining Room we offer a 4-course Set Menu and a 7-course Extended Menu, please specify on your booking if you would like the Extended Menu.

Top quality food from the tiny kitchen at Salon. Sweetcorn and duck heart a particular highlight, the Nduja croquettes a close second - or maybe the crab and cucumber. Whichever way round, it was really enjoyable - made even more enjoyable by some wonderful staff who made my little boy feel super welcome and part of the experience. A little too part as he tried to scoff my crab. No chance mate. Will be back soon without the child to make the most of the wine list next time!

The food was amazing! So well presented and great quality food. We had the set menu on Sunday which was perfect if you can't decide what to have because everything sounds delicious!

Salon is one of those restaurants that surprises. In the middle of Brixton market which has many places to eat but this one stands out as a special place. Not cheap for the extended tasting menu (i.e. expensive for Brixton but cheap for anywhere else in London). But it is well worth it and do choose the wines to match - lots of interest and they really do pair. Our favourite dish was the beans.

Salon is v v special indeed. We don't know the neighborhood so it was a bit difficult to find but well worth seeking out. The adjoining wine shop is top notch as well.

The restaurant is beautiful and feels busy and exciting. Immediately when you walk in it feels special.

I visited with my partner as we had heard very good things. As we entered we were excited and were immediately wowed by the service and introduction to the menu/restaurant. The food was clever, fresh and delicious. Starting with a tomato and basil gazpacho followed by a crab and peach dish. I was excited to see what was next. I hadn’t spent much time looking at the menu as it was set and I had no dietary requirements.

Generally the food was great, ideally I would have appreciated a little more care from the waitress explaining the food as it wasn’t busy and she seemed very quick to disappear when putting down the food. I had to keep asking her to repeat what she had said before leaving and she would rush and tail off as if not quite sure about the ingredients.

The main came and me and my partner had opted for one meat, one veggie to try the whole menu. Sadly the meat dish had been very over cooked. This hadn’t been such a problem until the bill came and I noticed despite it being a ‘set menu @£39’ the meat option was £6 more. When I asked the waitress said ‘oh yes we get that a lot, it probably should’ve been more clear’. Considering there is two options for anyone dining I felt this could have easily been highlighted when explaining the menu. The service at this point had become pretty poor. It Was a shame as it had started so well. In the defence of the staff it was very hot and we were struggling just sitting down.

On the whole I felt a little disappointed when we left. Partly because the staff had gone from welcoming to really not that fussed/rude. I would suggest this place to a friend who wanted to impress someone with the appearance of the place but generally it won’t be going down on my list of special places, I wouldn’t return.

Overall it was £120 for two people with a bottle of wine to share. Wine wasn’t great at all @£25

My second visit. We opted for the tasting menu with matching wines. Overall £85 each but I feel it’s a great experience. Not something I would do everyday but still a good experience. Wines matched very well with the food.

We had a brilliant night at Salon, eating our way through the extended tasting menu with wine pairing. It’s a lovely room with friendly and knowledgable staff, and we loved the food. And the wine...

Cool atmosphere, friendly and professional staff, food is amazing, we ordered the set menu and regretted not having the extended one. From the bread, to the butter, to the wine to every mouthful, everything was delicious. The salted chocolate & cherry dessert was to die for.

Only bad side is the noise. The music is chilled and not loud but the voices of customers are in all a quite loud (was packed on a Friday night). Some acoustic treatment of ceiling or walls would help enormously.

We will definitely go back.

Décevant. Service correct, atmosphère agréable quoi que bruyante, nourriture très décevante ( petites quantités, pain carbonisé, sauce très salée, plat hyper acide tomates baignées dans du vinaigre)

It was the day of my birthday so I decided to go for a meal, I tasted sweetbreads for the first time and had been craving a hearty pasta dish for a while. It was perfect, got to say hello and thank you to the Chefs since the kitchen is open plan. I left tipsy, full and really really happy. I’ll be back for sure.

I saw Salon recommended in the Desmond & Dempsey paper and thought we’d give it a try. The food was great, we sat outside with a heater to keep us warm. The staff were friendly and the service was efficient. I had booked a table online, but found we could only have the set menu upstairs, but fortunately they had a table for us outside so all worked out ok. If you want the bar menu, suggest you check when booking a table!

Tucked away in part of Brixton's fun and quirky market space is where this bijou of a dining establishment resides. It's a place where you can relax enjoy great dishes created with love and attention to taste. A great wine list with a fine variety. The staff are excellent and very thoughtful too!
