Sinabro is one of my most favourite restaurants. If you appreciate 'taste' and 'quality' this is the place to be. The atmosphere at the restaurant was great and the service efficient, but relaxed and unobtrusive. The wine menu was excellent and reasonably priced.

Came here for a Friday night treat. First time we have been to Sinabro and we will definitely be going back. We had the taster menu. The courses were generously sized and delicious, and uniquely for a taster menu you got to pick your dessert. Not only was the food amazing the service was great and we both really enjoyed watching the chef at work.

Food served to the standard of a high-end restaurant in a casual setting. The menu is small so best to decide if they have what you want before coming.

I had hake and chocolate fondant - loved every bit of both!

We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu at this discrete gem on Battersea Rise. Each course was presented beautifully and with an inventive and exciting mix of French fine dining with a slight Korean twist. It was extremely enjoyable watching Yoann Chevet prepare each intricate course on the other side of the bar in this tiny restaurant. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Every time we visit this restaurant the service is always first class and nice to see a restaurant which is ran by a couple who are obviously dedicated to their profession. Lovely little place where you can watch your food being cooked and with an ever changing menu always keeps things interesting.

Had a fantastic St. Valentine's Feast at Sinabro, with their taster menu and wine pairing. The restaurant is very small and if you are sat in the front you can watch the chef preparing all your meals which is fantastic. The food was incredibly tasty and we both loved every 1 of the 6 courses on offer.

My only gripes were the slightly inflated prices for it being Valentine's night but the service was fantastic and the team made it a very special night for us both.

Such a gem in Clapham/Battersea. Me and my partner had the tasting menu with wines. The food was exquisite - so clever. The wines were a great match.
Only downside is it was a Tuesday during Christmas and wasn’t busy inside at all so bit quiet and service was a little rushed. Would have liked a bit more atmosphere for £100 per head.

Sinabro is lovely, can't really fathom why we haven't discovered it before - perhaps because it's tucked in and pretty low key. It's got some nice decor, and cosy seating either at tables or the bar.

We had the tasting menu, which was great - excellent, home made bread and smoky butter in the beginning. Starters and mains that followed were seasonal, and finished to an exceptional standard. Just when I thought they couldn't top it, the dessert arrived.

This is a small restaurant with an unusual layout - most of the seating is at a bar directly in front of the chef preparing the food. The three members of staff were exceptionally friendly and the food was exciting, and I felt very sorry for them that it was not full. I am sure that it would be if it were in a more central location.

The restaurant concept is interested - well produced limited menu. It was mid week so quite quiet and while interesting we did not find the menu outstanding. Overall this is a good place to try, and is different from the other local restaurants.

We booked at Sinabro following the outstanding OpenTable reviews it has received.
It is worth commenting on the set-up: Much of the seating is at a bar that surrounds the kitchen, so you watch your food being prepared - exciting and interesting. You are offered a 'Tasting Menu', or else a la carte (choice of 2 or 3 courses). There are only two starters, two mains and two deserts on the menu and the tasting menu essentially offers you both starters and mains, and one desert. There is an affordable wine list or else a set menu of wines to accompany the tasting menu.
The food is excellent. We especially loved the lamb and the bass. The onion soup was most original in terms of presentation and tasted wonderful - even for my partner who really doesn't like onions! The honeycomb in the pudding was also a real treat,
Wine is affordable - a pleasant surprise for a restaurant of this standard.

Sinabro is small, but perfectly formed. The five-course tasting menu (the only option on a Friday night) was beautifully cooked, looked and smelled wonderful and was attentively served by our host. Particular highlights were a gazpacho with onion confit and the beef onglet. A great night. I can highly recommend and will definitely be back.

It was the best tasting menu we have had in a while, with clean elegantly executed dishes from the bread to the 64^ egg to the fish and pig mains. We brought our 2 year old and while it would have been more ideal as a date night the staff was very accommodating and great with her.

The food was just outstanding. Every course was so well put together. We sat at the bar/table watching the chef at work -which was truly a master at work. A rare treat and it felt like it. Pea Ravioli with Parmesan foam and the Hake were the highlights for me - although i finished every plate off which on a fixed set menu is a rare feat. Just go.

This place is fantastic. Very high end food. Not cheap but it's worth it. Deserving of a michelin star I think. However their chairs are very very uncomfortable. If they sorted out their chairs, this place would be virtually perfect.

I had the set menu of 3 courses with tomato salad, guinea fowl and chocolate mousse last Wednesday. As my first experience was just superb, I booked again to try the extremely well-priced tasting menu. This time the menu was changed - the green peas ravioli was incredibly fresh and tasty. The small surprises the chef was serving before and between meals was a nice surprise and very thoughtful. The wine list also reasonably priced and we could try most of fine French wines with under £40. The service was absolutely exemplary - charming, attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I thoroughly enjoyed my two visits here and can't wait to go back to try the chef's new tasting menu with wonderful wines.

My partner and I dined last Saturday evening and enjoyed an amazing experience. We had the tasting menu with accompanying fine wines and enjoyed every single dish! It was my third visit and even better than I remember.
The food was phenomenal, innovative, beautiful and excellent value! For me, a guinea fowl stood out, full of flavour. The service and atmosphere make this a truly special restaurant. I'm really happy with their simple new menu and no doubt it will make this tiny local restaurant even more stands out. All in all it was another memorable meal and we would definitely return soon.

The restaurant was lovely and service pleasant.

I'm not knocking the food but it didn't really have the spark you would expect for the price paid.
£59 for taster menu followed by an additional £39 with the matching wine. For the amount given it may have been better to go for a few bottles over the recommended glasses.

Service was good but all came a bit fast not really allowing for time to enjoy the courses or the wine. On several occasions an attempt was made to take away glasses the still had wine in them.

I would love to see a business like this do well but I think a few minor changes to the menu, price and service would benefit Sinabro.

Very sorry to say but Unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations.

Hidden local gem! Don't make the mistake I did, and believe a word of the Fay Maschler review of this place. Pretty much everything about it is wrong!
We had great service, and the best seat in the house overlooking the kitchen.
We had the tasting menu which was both innovative and generous, and the matched wines were excellent.

Our only regret is that it took us so long to find Sinabro, but we will definitely be back!

My wife and I had an excellent meal at Sinabro, served with grace and efficiency. The menu is short and imaginative. The wines by the glass we selected were very good (there are some interesting wines from the Loire Valley). The cod we had as a main dish was beautifully cooked and served, the accompanying vegetables and sauce being particularly subtle. We will undoubtedly go back. The meal was not cheap, but we did feel it was good value for money.
