This was the fourth time I have eaten at Medlar and I can't praise it highly enough. Beautiful food, good wine advice and friendly, attentive, unobtrusive service.

Eight of us talked and laughed our way through a wonderful lunch here. Vitello tonnato was excellent (almost too large a portion), hake cooked with skill and the passion fruit parfait and petit fours were delicious. I didn't pay so have no idea if it good value but I can say we had a terrific time!

I have to say that Im not keen on 'Michelin Star' fine dining. I don't feel at ease with all the coddling and excessive service. Which is why Medlar was such a delight. In some ways its a characteristic michelin star, fine dining experience but it execution is with such great balance that you always feel at ease. We visited... More

We needed a family birthday Sunday lunch at very short notice: Medlars came up trumps! The food is uniformly tops and the wine matches. Staff attentive and helpful: go try!

Very competent, confident cooking. Good choice of wine served by carafe and a knowledgeable, helpful wine waiter. I will certainly return soon and recommend this as an excellent SW London choice. Service generally good, but not uniformly so. Perhaps one waitress was just having an off day, but didn't really engage with customers.

First visited the Medlar in 2012 and loved it immediately. Revisited the place last year and its still my favorite restaurant in London! Both my sister and I ordered the crab raviolo again as that was the dish we had been missing most. It was exquisite! i had the stone bass as the main and it’s fair to say that’s... More

Medlar is a great place to kick back and have a leisurely lunch with the girls. The food was lovely. I particularly liked my starter of crab raviolo and dessert of yoghurt parfait. I also had the roast guinea fowl which was nice but a bit too heavy and too much for me. Service was excellent. Since all four of... More

This cosy neighbourhood restaurant is definitely heading for a star and would advise anyone reading this to go there asap. The food. To start - We had tuna tartare with ponzu dressing, avocado puree and... More

My wife and I visited Medlar for Saturday lunch. We had the £30 set menu and we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and professional, the service was really good without being too formal ....just right for a chilled out lunch experience. The food was amazing as good as any michelin star restaurant we have eaten in. Great... More

I did show up 45 minutes early in the restaurant as I forgot to take the timing difference between Luxembourg and London into consideration. The staff was very helpfull and friendly. I had the time to go over the extensive wine list in detail ( it is a complete book). The wine list is extraordiary. They have all the great... More
