Bistro
Our food menu ethos is simple – to create a high quality, local (where possible) & seasonal offering. The menus created for both the deli & bistro will always be fresh & ever changing.

Our drink menus tell a story of our travels around the world. We work with small family vineyards to source the highest quality of wine from our very own english terroir to far flung shores.

Being a neighbourhood bistro and bar customers are very welcome just for drinks, grab a stool at the bar and sample the creations. Wine, cocktails, craft beer and coffee are served from morning to night.

From brunch to lunch, light suppers to three course meals, our menus offer it all. Created by our head chef Antonio, the distinctive menu takes inspiration from around the world, and at the heart of the menu his handmade pastas inspired by his Nonna.

It was a bit windy so glasses were blown across the table; unfortunately one broke. However the staff was incredibly courteous and accommodating. The food was delicious and the service was prompt. I would have liked greater variety in the menu, but will still return in the future.

The cocktails were watered down - not what you expect from a bar.

No vegan main options which was disappointing, not everyone wants to eat avocado on toast.

The staff were lovely and the food was great . The drinks came a bit randomly . The position on the high street is not ideal due to traffic but they worked really hard to make sure we had a good time . I will definitely go back again

I've watched worthy Streatham eateries come & go over the years, and SW16 Bar & Kitchen seems like a wonderful new addition. Go for the curiosity. Stay for the exemplary service, fine wine, warm ambience and delicious, freshly made pasta. I already plan to return when I can sit inside and enjoy the next seasonal ravioli of the day and one more creamy tiramisu. Treat yourself to a fabulous night out and give this one your support.

Such a great return to SW16. It’s a shame that the only outside space is on the main road but everything else was great and the staff were so lovely and willing to give us a great experience!

Food menu was very scarce and they had run out of basic options like fries and sweet potato chips. They have a very misleading drinks menu where if you order a spirit & mixer, you’re automatically charged for a double. There is a small line of writing further up the page separate to where the prices are actually listed for single and doubles shots that says their standard pour is 50ml. If you happen to see this note before you order a drink, for those who aren’t as knowledgeable on shot measurements, this is very deceptive. They kindly removed one G&T from our order to accommodate the issue but our bill still ended up being more than it should have been if we were charged for singles like we thought we were. Waitresses were lovely and attentive though and provided blankets as it was quite chilly.

The worst food I have ever tasted the sourdough bread was rock hard even the knife could not cut it, the dessert was appalling their tiramasu was simply just cream and cream and the dinner menu had nothing interesting. The only thing I managed to eat was their sweet potato fries which was also very salty. I will never go back, however the customer service was 10/10. Usually when I’m out I take pictures of the food but on this occasion I took non.

Absolutely amazing food. I came for the first time before lockdown when they first opened and it was just as good this time!

I was a little bit disappointed not to see there cocktail list because last time they were amazing, but I’m sure they are just trying to cut costs at the moment. I have no doubt they’ll be back.

By far the best bar/restaurant I’ve been to in Streatham. Can’t wait to visit again!

Such a great addition to the Streatham Hill area! Jenni and her staff are super welcoming and very accommodating. The food was absolutely delicious (we had the veal carpaccio, calamari, the pork belly and the steak) they were very good for gluten free choices. The wine selection was also fantastic. Looking forward to eating here many more times!

Lovely staff and good service! Only complaint would be the portion sizes. A slice of potato with the bavette steak? Could have been a bit more generous with the sides. But all in all it was a nice night out in Streatham. I think the restaurant is a nice new edition to the neighbourhood.
