It hits the spot

I've been to the different branches in London and the Barbacoa burrito is my favourite. Lately I chose the Barbacoa salad (nicer in Summer), much lighter and still great tasting. I love the fact that they use responsible ingredients, so when it comes to chains, definitely one I will return to... read more

We visited the branch of Chipotle in St Martins Lane, London. This place is Mexican fast food when it comes down to it, despite all the hype. It was a little difficult to understand the myriad of accents among the staff, but we were served quickly, which was good because we were time limited, with theatre tickets. My wife ordered... More

Gig last week at the Borderline so needed sustenance, had a Mex / Tex-Mex craving and hadn't tried this addition to the recent plethora of chains of that ilk. Already noted as not a big fan of chain restaurants by and large this one pleasantly surprised me. Excellent fresh tortilla chips with a good salsa and decent ( not overly... More

What a great alternative to the usual fast food burger bars, a relatively healthy option which is not only very tasty and very filling but really good value. Eat in or take away

My favourite place to eat burritos in town! I love barbacoa and hot sauce! ( the only thing, if I ask for my sauce on the side, you shouldn't charge it extra, isn't it the same than having it inside?)

I'm a big Burrito fan, was in the West End shopping, hungry and did a google search for Burrito and this came up. As I entered the restaurant, two men were walking in and one said to the other, 'this is not like the other Burrito's' and I found out why. I ordered a burrito with Barbacoa beef, I was... More

Chipotle is supposed to be a better version of fast food, combining speedy preparation with high quality ingredients and great taste. I can't say that I've been overly pleased with my experiences at Chipotle thus far, and this is no exception. I got the steak burrito, and the steak was ridiculously chewy. Although the other ingredients were good, and some... More

Not usually one to complain but from my experience so far, chains serve you well only when trying to break a new market. Chipotle used to be tasty, unfortunately the good-ish cuts of meat have become fatty chewing gum, tortilla chips yesterday's left overs & Margerita a watered down version of lemonade. Improve or go feed ducks ! Trip advisor... More

I visited this restaurant yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised because not only it is gluten free friendly, but the staff are aware of cross contamination issues (I have coeliac) and David changed his gloves and washed his hand before making my food as soon as I said I have coeliac. Very impressive! I went there with my husband and... More

Very tasty food but above all excellent service by David and the staff on Sunday March 8. My wife cannot eat gluten products and the staff took extra care with that.

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden.
