We went out for dinner in a small group with a reservation for 8:15. Unfortunately, there was a 15-20 minute wait even with a reservation. However, the staff was really apologetic and did everything in their power to keep us comfortable and happy, including free champagne while we waited. We ordered a mixed platter of cheeses, meats and breads as... More

I doubt there are enough adjectives in my overstuffed brain to describe how good this place is. Really good, really freaking good. If you haven't been, go!!!

Chef danijel does it again. Never disappointed with the food or the service. Favourite dish requested...favourite dish received. The Black George was my intro and is my "go to meal" soul food

This is a small intimate restaurant with welcoming and friendly staff. The menu has really interesting dishes. It was really hard to decide. Starers were duck carpaccio and kataifi shrimp. Both were awesome. The duck was particularly good. Mains were wild mushroom risotto and pork three ways. Again, really yummy. The service was excellent and very friendly. Even though the... More

We fell in love with Kantina the very first time we ate there and having been going back regularly ever since. We love everything about it. The food is amazing and ever changing, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the service is beyond compare, and Tapas nights consistently blow our taste buds out of this world. We recommend it often... More

I had what can only be described as a fantastic meal. First the ambiance. The place simultaneously manages to create a comfortable yet elegant environment. There not too many tables, they are very elegantly set, but the service is professional while also being incredibly friendly and approcheable. I ate at the bar alone and they made me feel quite at...

The two of us shared 5 items on the tapas menu ( Tuesdays and Wednesdays) plus one desert and found it just the right amount of food, and our cost was about the same as we would normally pay in a fine dining restaurant for appetizers, mains and a dessert. All our selections were delicious and definitely not "run of... More

We love the food and people at Kantina. We have never had a less than perfect meal here. Absolutely top notch. Top 2 in London without a doubt (could be a tie for first with David's Bistro). I had the octopus appetizer and a main course of pickerel over chorizo risotto with mussels. My wife had an incredible asparagus soup... More

Excellent Serbian based menu that is continuously updated and revolves around market fresh items. The tapas are outstanding and a must try is the Coconut Shrimp and save room for desserts. I always have a wonderful meal and the staff is awesome. I rate this one of London's finest.
