We came across the Fat Fig by chance and were really glad to have done so. The service from the start was excellent. I think our waiter was called Steve who is a friend of the owner/chef. My wife and I, as well as our 3 year old son were made to feel very welcome. I had the Fat Fig... More

Been here already 4 times and will certainly come back. Lamb meat is delicious and perfectly cooked (can't miss the lamb shoulder!), dips with pita very good, the side salades and potatoes are incredibly tasty! Portions are rich, ingredients genuine and dishes freshly prepared in the open cuisine. The service is friendly, a part from a slightly rude welcome once.... More

I was amazed to see so much authentic greek food on the menu having been to Greece and not found the same food in England! We had pitta, dips, falafel, greek salad and a Y-something (can't remember the name- but... More

I've been coming to this place on and off for many years. Originally called Mastouras, was run in mid noughties by a very charismatic chap. Food excellent and good atmosphere. Sold late Noughties to Spiros who was not everyones cup of tea. He changed the name to Fat Fig. I liked him but he had many 'Off Days' when he... More

I have to eat here at least once a week... The service and food is exceptional and value for money is unbelievable. Its brilliant that the kitchen is open and you can see your food being freshly prepared. If eating in Bedford Place then there is only one restaurant to visit.... The Fat Fig :-)

I did not know anything about this restaurant before we happened upon it that evening, but the TripAdvisor rating that was displayed there looked promising! On entering the premises, my first thought was... More
