Dabbous somehow reminds me of an beautiful, swanky person with a silent 's'. You've heard they are hot and in hot demand. You want to see what all the fuss is about. You get to speak with them. They know they are hot and have multiple offers - and as a result make absolutely no effort. You find them wanting... More

I took two colleagues here for lunch a couple of weeks ago. I must admit, the last time I went, it was better. It was £32 for a 4 course. Very little choice, but not a problem if it is good. First up, was a paper bag, with bread inside. Good bread. But why in a paper bag ? No... More

We went last night for a special meal, unfortunately our experience was tainted by an incredibly loud table next to us. I'm not talking laughter and the odd loud comment (that I'm fine with) but actual shouting and banging fists on tables. It was like being in a pub. The food was amazing and the service was great (we had... More

I have to say that I don't really like minimalist restaurants, nothing to absorb the noise, and I don't like restaurants with very few choices on the menu. So I should be giving Dabbous a really low rating. But despite it being indeed very noisy mostly due to a table of hooray henrys and only having a very expensive Tasting... More

The tasting menu was really good and creative, really enjoyed it. They don't serve their famous egg dish anymore, which was a bit disappointing.

The staff were wonderful, i loved the industrial look. But i didn't like all the courses. We chose to have the tasting menu. the boys loved Raw scallop with eucalyptus, i wasn't too keen. i loved the little dumplings, himself wasn't keen. The beef was delightfully tender, but the sauce was billed as horseradish, but just tasted of cream. I... More

The industrial look with little to no unneeded decorations pays of to give this place a special feel even though the acoustics could improve,it gets a bit loud when it's crowded. We ordered the £32 lunch. The truffle dumplings were a pleasant and tasty surprise. While the bbq lamb with aubergine and herbs alone would have earned this place top... More

The restaurant itself, looks nice. Although once you enter, I can't say it had the most warm, friendly inviting atmosphere I was hoping for. The service is outstanding, attentive, and friendly. Not a fault there, except for one waiter with rather strong halitosis, I wish I was brave enough to say something but I was too embarrassed. The food looks... More

We tried for reservations at Dabbous for the last 2 years, during trips to the UK, but never were able to get in. I emailed the restaurant before travelling this year and they very kindly accomodated me. The atmosphere is chic industrial. We had the tasting menu and felt all the courses were well prepared. Of special note, their bread,... More
