Modern European
Fresh, light, modern, and sophisticated are words that describe both The Light House restaurant in the south London suburb of Wimbledon and its meltingly good Italian fusion cuisine. The dining room is pleasingly modern and spacious, all pale walls with striking artworks, blond floors and furniture, and there is a lovely patio for lingering on and on. The Light House menu changes every day to make best use of the freshest seasonal ingredients and each dish is an adventure. Try perroche bruschetta with piquillo peppers, caperberries, babaganoush and Greek olives to start, perhaps followed by pan-fried sea bass on wild garlic leaves, courgettes, ratte potatoes and romesco sauce. Black pepper cheesecake with gooseberry compote is a winner, too. For chatty lunches, romantic evenings, memorable Sunday lunches or satisfying meals when Wimbledon tennis is in full swing, The Light House is waiting with excellent modern European food and friendly service.

    Great Easter Sunday Lunch, varied and good value set menu with around six options for each course. The five of us had no difficulty choosing delicious options for each course and plenty of wines by the glass to satisfy most tastes. Simple but expertly and consistently executed dishes. Not cutting edge in terms of ingredients or techniques but none the worse for that and all in all we had an extremely enjoyable meal and experience.

    Booked this on a Monday night early evening slot, a nice restaurant well set out with plenty of seats. It was quiet we were met with a smile and the service was good. The food was lovely and more importantly hot when it came out. I had the monkfish which was very tasty. A bit pricy i thought so be prepared for that. Overall a decent experience.

    Lighthouse is the precious gem of Wimbledon’s village. With an always creative and cosy menu, there is no way to have an amazing meal and good time with family! Staff is always friendly and welcoming. The open kitchen allows you appreciate the chef’s passion for his food! Every time I visit the restaurant, it is a 100pc delicious experience from starters to desserts. This is one of my favourite restaurant in London! Well done!

    We had a wonderful anniversary celebration with Light House ticking all the boxes. Our starters were delicious and the cod main was superb- a generous portion, perfectly cooked with just the right texture and with a nice mix of accompaniments. Service was welcoming and attentive. We brought our own wine from the year of our marriage and the manager was happy to carefully decant it for us for a nominal corkage charge. Light House continues to stand out in Wimbledon— long my it continue to do so!

    Service efficient but brusque. We were not told about the mid-week 3 course deal, and only noticed the advert outside after we paid. When we queried there was no price on the dessert menu other than a supplemant for cheese the waitress said it was a typing error! I didn't feel a valued customer. Roast cod excellent but pate could have been garnished better. Probably won't return.

    Our group of four was very impressed with the menu and all delighted with our choices. It was my second visit to this restaurant and I plan to return. The only teeny, tiny criticism I would have is that there was a distinct smell of fish when we arrived. Every other aspect of our visit was close to perfection.

    I came here with two friends for dinner. Two of us had the risotto which was tasty, however the two large pieces of leek which were part of the dish were undercooked and I found it a bit indigestible and not what I had expected, It also meant there wasn't a whole lot of risotto in the dish. So for the price I would have expected better, according to the standard I have previously experienced at The Lighthouse. My friend and I shared a dessert - orange pudding which was nice.
