Good venue with great design, and food was very tasty. Value for money was a bit off as we found the bill quite high.

Lovely little spot, for intimate dinning. Staff very helpful and the cocktails were very imaginative.

The food was great, but my one comment would be that only having 1 proper vegetarian option for both starter and main was not really good enough (especially when the main was pasta).

What a delicious surprise... never sure about restaurants within hotels but YOPO certainly proved they can be excellent. Our meal was a food adventure, just what we like, with tastes and flavours which were not only there to enjoy, but make you question. The presentation was exquisite too and from start to finish we were kept on our tastebud toes.
The staff were efficient and friendly, the environment casual and warm with perfect light levels (always important).
Would definitely like to return...

Decor fun and contemporary, food high quality and beautiful (taste and presentation). Front of house very welcoming.

Service was hit and miss - over the top when we didn’t need it and not around when we did. We would expect waiters to know how to pronounce all the items on a limited menu.

Wine list has some good choices but is upper range and we were surprised to be charged per person for tap water.

Nice evening but it’ll be a once only visit from us.

Flavours of food very good. Unfortunately service was poor. Asked a few questions on menu, waitress had no clue. Brought wine twice. Asked if we we wanted to see dessert menu, when we were still waiting for our mains. I was charged for a different wine. Overpriced. Lack of atmosphere in restaurant though music was good.

Lovely looking place.
Staff very friendly.
Food was good, the Ravioli I had was a bit salty, but not a problem for me.
Good wine list but expensive.

I would recommend this place as the Hotel is beautiful & is a great destination to impress on a romantic meal.

We went to Yopo to celebrate a friends engagement - bar and ambience are v cool and food was excellent - what the excellent bar staff provided however was v much missing from the restaurant staff and the service v much let it down given how it expensive is was. Would I go back for that cost and that service? Probably not but I’d definitely go back to the bar!

Beautiful ambiance, felt like I was a VIP. The treatment by the entire team was 5 star. A few of the guys looked a little angry but very polite and provided fantastic service. Was specially pleased by the table service i received in the outside garden area by the bar (forget the names of the two ladies) and very impressed by the friendliness and what seemed genuine service from the restaurant receptionist (blond lady with tatoo) amazing. Also our server was brilliant and welcoming.

It is important to point out that for a hotel and restaurant of this calibre, one expects a snobby uptight (we're better than you) attitude from staff and the hotel and restaurant however both The Mandrake and YOPO have proven that a combination of cool, modern service can be friendly and have that old fashioned VIP service that no longer exists!

We will def be back!

The place is really beautifully done. The Ground Floor and first-floor terrace are quite unique.
But in terms of food, it needs to be refined to be up to the standards of the venue.

Very very good food. Everything we had was of very high quality and very tasty BUT it was very pricey for the quantity of food on each plate. Definitely recommended but either order strategically or be prepared to pay quite a lot.

We came for the lunch and had a really great time. The place is very stylish and beautiful. Our waiter was very nice and helpfull to explain the menu. He was also opendminded and took time to speak with us. Merci 😊 and the food is very good. Special mention for the fish served in the 2 or 3 courses lunch menu : delicious.

The food is very good but the service can be a bit inattentive. They have a DJ on Fridays and Saturday evening which makes the place very loud.....

There are a few reviews online suggesting the service in not great, I am the biggest critique of restaurant that deliver poor service, and quiet a few of my reviews are critical. The Bar and restaurant staff were all amazing, I am sure they hire people based on their ink (tatoos) too, all very arty and lovely! The food was good - not quiet Michelin but up there, the sharing portions were quiet small, but if you ordered enough it would be sufficient. The decor and the ambience of the hotel, bar restaurant - you cant get better!!!

I thought we'd try out Yopo for a Friday night joint birthday with my sister and our partners. WOW. Fabulous welcome, and within moments of being in the funkiest of bars, were shown to our table. The decor is lush, and although the music is loud, it creates just the right relaxed vibe. THE FOOD IS TO DIE FOR. That's all I'm saying, go try it for yourself and see.

I have booked this restaurant for 4 people, the atmosphere and decoration are amazing, food it is good, tasty and very well cooked but the portions are extremely small.
Service disappointing, we would never imagine being treated like this in this kind of restaurant, to be fair only was one member of the staff which I don't know her position. Hopefully, they fix this problem otherwise it would be a good experience.

I took our office team for a lunch here and it was probably the best work dining experience we have had. The room and the courtyard beside it are beautiful, rich with tropical plants and artworks which enrich the whole feel of the place. We eat from the set menu at £29 per head for there courses and at that price the food is truly exceptional (a few dishes have supplements that push the price up but only two from a list of about ten dishes so still plenty to choose from). I had a cooling and delicious ceviche to start and octopus served with mole sauces, amazing tiny blue tortillas and a tomatillo salsa which is my favourite thing I've eaten all year.

I've booked again for another business lunch in a couple of weeks and will be using this restaurant again in the future.

I had a lovely experience at YOPO. I went there for lunch and chose the set menu. All the dishes were delicious, the price was a bargain for the offer. I could have easily ordered another set menu but thought I was a tad too greedy so didn’t!
The surroundings are gorgeous and service very friendly and attentive.

Simply amazing. Probably the best in the London scene at the moment. Delicious food and great vibe. It feels a Michelin star experience with really affordable prices. The duck and the dumplings are a must try.
