Great restaurant with fantastic food and an excellent selection of wines. Love the semi-suburban setting too!
Food was ok, trying a little too hard and not hitting the right points at times. Probably a little too much for the quality of food.
Service was good and it is a nice place, however I came away wanting a proper meal. The portions were ridiculously tiny, some tasty and some not. Some just thrown together, the anchovies and tomato on toast sounded great but the toast was burnt with a sad looking fish draped over it. Woke up hungry and disappointed the next morning, will not return.
Daily changing menu (posted on instagram that day) which is seafood focused, but plenty of vegetarian and meat dishes too. Great ambiance and beautiful courtyard. Great for a summer evening.
There’s no doubting the skill in the kitchen. But too much of our food was served with excesses of greasy (if tasty) sauces/dressings that dampened our enjoyment of the whole meal.
The space and courtyard garden are fantastic, though internally the acoustics do not favour quiet conversation. You may need your ear plugs.
I am fine enough with the faddy natural wine list, but the value of the wines is poor. Though on a plus note all wines are available by the glass.
So this showed tantalising glimpses of greatness but it was sadly a rather flawed experience for us.
First time dining here - the tapas-type menu is original and very tasty, lots of choice, well-priced. Loved all the food, esp the butter beans and really good Iberico salami. Deserts - a kind of apricot trifle and a brown bread ice cream - were delicious. Having read that the wines are over-priced, I disagree because the quality is so good (and the cheapest wine was £4.50 a glass). The service was really good - informative and friendly - and we weren’t rushed out at the end. A really interesting venue.
This place continues to be seriously good!
I’ve been watching Westerns Laundry on Instagram for a bit now. Finally had a reason and an evening to go for a meal. The overall experience was excellent! Ben talked us through the ‘natural wines’, we enjoyed a couple of bottles of them. The food was well cooked, nicely presented and delicious! We were impressed watching the staff erase sold out items from the board and replacing them with more delicacies! Very god service, charming interior and a great evening out!!Cheers!
Great setting, great food, great service. Will definitely be coming again!
Anchovies were amazing! Lobster was underwhelming / overpriced- small portion of lobster in a big dish of pasta, though delicious.service was great! Ravioli and ceviche was excellent! Lovely atmosphere!
Unbelievable food and service. One of the best restaurants in London. Can't wait to visit again. Big love to Fran and the team for looking after us.
Delicious food, lovely service but very hard to talk to my friends which was really the reason I was there.
Excellent!! Food is delicious, the ambience is lively and the staff is really nice. Great for a Friday night dinner I the neighborhood.
I love how low key and unceremonious this place is. Every dish we had was clever and delicious, served without pomp, and with exceptional friendliness. A brilliant place all round.
The menu is constantly changing and it's always exciting, different food. Lots of meat and seafood options. A few for veggies too. Nice wines and cocktails. Great service, very friendly. It's a nice place to go on a date or with a foodie friend.
This restaurant was on my wishlist for quite while. Unfortunately it does not deliver and the food and flavours are a bit disappointing.
Fantastic food. Small plates to share were nice. Busy and fairly loud exciting experience. Overall wonderful meal
Excellent food, excellent service. Really enjoyed it. Thank you!
All the food is lovely and to the same standard. Staff / service is also excellent, friendly and professional.
Wonderful food, very nice people. Wine is pricey but I suspect it fairly reflects the cost of production.
As always, we had a fantastic experience dining at Westerns Laundry.
Wonderful attentive waiters. Incredible food with cool and edgy vibes. Highly recommend!
Well worth the journey from the slums of SW11 to fashionable N5. The food and service were excellent and I will return.
Food and service was excellent, but they need to sort out the acoustics. It was deafeningly loud (conversation not music). Highly recommended otherwise
Great ambience with an Australian feel to it. Expensive wine, service a bit patronizing but good food.
Everything on our plates was delicious. I am coeliac and the waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful, advising on the gluten free options. Restaurant was nicely lit with a good vibe. Good for a romantic dinner.
The only downside was the expensive wine list and no drinks served after 11 (we had the late sitting).
Was utterly brilliant - the best place to spend my birthday with friends but also a wonderful place to go for a relaxed date - or anything in fact!
Hidden neighbourhood gem - off Holloway Road in Islington. Great vibe matched by the food and friendly staff. Excellent value...I'm not the biggest fan of natural wines, but loved the compact and bijou blackboard menu....
Sensationally delicious but simple and bold pairings. Reliably. Perfect service. Lovely place. And great value for the quality. An all time favourite.
I've been to the sister restaurant Primeur often and knew what to expect regarding food and enjoyed this one as much. Beautifully cooked fish and a list of more palatable low intervention wines rather than full on natural (I thought). Perhaps I should have given more thought to my order or asked advice about the combination of dishes but that doesn't distract from the food itself. Do check the menu daily, that dish you loved last week probably wont' be on the menu.
Food, ambience was great. Shame about the impatient aloof service we received. It really did spoil the whole evening.
U guys do a brilliant job !!! ....always great......glad to see you have some alternatives to natural wine. You are either a fan of it or not......
As wonderful as ever, the fish was perfection on a plate.
Really lovely weekend lunch. Great service, tasty food and good wine.
Beautiful setting and fantastic service. The food overall was delicious - particularly enjoyed the pork chops and the octopus pasta. On thing we were disappointed with was the Turbot Head - it was tasty and came with a nice leafy salad, but wasn't very much meat on it. Aside from that, it was a lovely meal and I would certainly return.
Great friendly service, delicious food and a brilliant last minute find. Fairly priced for the quantity and quality you are getting, but don't go expecting a cheap meal.
The menu is made up on the day based on what they get, so everything is fresh, go earlier in the day to avoid missing out on dishes that run out.
Great ingredients, great cooking and charming service from knowledgeable young people. Could you include a few standard wines alongside the non intervention ones - to me the often oxidised taste, especially of your whites, obscures the pleasure of the grape and terroir.
Had a lovely meal here. It’s not the cheapest but the food is fresh and the menu is unique and obviously thought out. It has a really great atmosphere and we’ll definitely go again.
A great find while visiting London, incredible food, service and a very attentive staff.
Excellent food and some interesting wine choices
