£26 to £40
Contemporary British
Mirroring the spirit of our Saint Lucian sister-restaurant, guests enter a hushed space, with reclaimed wooden furniture, low-wattage ambience and a rustic iron bar, all of which open onto a terrace overlooking one of the capital’s most eclectic marketplaces.

On the menu: a unique blend of Anglo-Saint-Lucian cuisine; contemporary dishes influenced by the West Indies and Britain, with roasted cacao beans used as a subtle savoury spice and garnish – just as they had been in the centuries before chocolate was invented – as well as the rich, deep heart of desserts.

As part of our ongoing efforts to create a serene and safe dining experience for our guests, we’ve embraced another echelon of safety standards for our restaurant:

Lovely venue and the food was delicious. The cocktails weren't quite as good as the menu suggested, but still fine. The mash potato is incredible.

OMG. Cannot recommend this place enough. The cocktails are absolutely amazing. Stick with them through your meal, you will not be disappointed. Make sure you have room for Appetisers, Entrees and deserts. Everything is amazing. Our waiter, Marin and the staff where great. The right amount of attention, humour and advice. If you are South of the River, put this on your must visit list.

Brilliant evening ! Sat outside overlooking Borough Market. Warm night and lights from the closed but still busy market added to the occasion. Table booked with a Buyagift voucher but the smaller menu was still delicious and unusual. Flavouring was subtle but different. Would thoroughly recommend !

We were sat on a table on the terrace are and it was a lovely atmosphere contrasting the calm of the restaurant upstairs with the busy hussle and bussle downstairs in the market.

The staff were all the right balance of friendly, chatty and informative without being intrusive.

The food was amazing, big portions and delicious. The cocoa/ chocolate addictions to the food were subtle but really added something magical to the dish.

Deserts and drinks were also very tasty.

Really enjoyable experience in all aspects.

A blast frtom the past. I've visited a few times but had a hiatus of a few years.

We went at lunch and sat on the market terrace. Food was good but the menu has not changed. Discretionary service was a little cheeky.. We had to work hard to be served but on the plus side we didn't feel like we were being chased out!

Food was excellent and good quality. I had the Garden breakfast and my husband had the full English and both dishes were delicious, so were the berry smoothies. Highly recommended it.

Rabot 1745 has a terrace with a lovely atmosphere that juts out over Borough Market. Service was friendly and attentive. We had some incredible cocktails, all with a chocolate hint or twist.

Food menu is select but all options we tried were delicious, and enhanced by the cocoa inspiration. Alas we were too full to try any of the tempting desserts - but now a great excuse to return.

Food was ok, the presentation was nice.
Drinks were scrumptious, though the water was not topped up.
Servers were nice, helpful and friendly.
Ambience, we sat in the covered terrace. The smell of bins and Borough Market and the noise of the cleaning vehicles let the overall experience down. Though this is no fault of the restaurant.

Wait staff were slow and took order of people seated after us. Got a dish of complimentary nuts because of this. The food is always excellent but staff need to do better. Roof terrace was very noisy.

We have been to this restaurant quite a few times now and it will always be one of our favourite places. Every time we we have been you can never fault the staff. They are always super friendly, helpful and attentive. 10/10. Also helps the food is absolutely delicious too and reasonable prices.

Poor service, had to wait nearly hour for the main course and no waiters topped up our water. Other than the nice starter and great espresso martinis, the main course and dessert was underwhelming.
