This was lunch before hitting Borough market. RSJ is a bit unimposing from the outside but the very friendly welcome received meant we had made a good choice. We were shown to a cosy corner table by the inimitable maitre de . A most polite and jolly gentleman who made time for us lowly travellers. We decided on ox cheeks... More

Very good, but looooonnggg meal here with friends. The roasted Hake was fresh and perfectly cooked, but the casserole vegetables it came from, disappointing - bit like a Tesco's pre pack. The Venison our party chose was declared delicious. The sticky toffee pudding was excellent but the banana ice cream an acquired taste. But what did I expect? Cheesecake with... More

Dined in this unpretentious little restaurant friends last evening. The welcome was friendly and the drinks and food orders were taken efficiently. What was outstanding about the evening was, however, the quality of the food. My starter was roasted butternut squash with goats cheese and crispy fried sage leaves. Delicious. Surely things couldn't improve from there? They did. The sea... More

We were a party of three and ate here on a Saturday night. It was a busy night in London due to the fireworks. We arrived at the time of our booking and had to wait downstairs in the small reception for 15 minutes. We were in doorway of the kitchen so it was a bit awkward. After a while... More

Went to this restaurant with a party of eight colleagues, several of the group having dined there previously expectation levels were pretty high. The evening started well and we were warmly welcomed before being shown straight to our table which we had booked for 7.30pm. Menus were circulated and drinks orders were taken. Then we waited.....The wine arrived after 30... More

A great place for a date - a lovely dining room with white linen table clothes and with completely unpretentious service that is a nice balance of formal and informal. You won't feel out of place dressed-up, but equally will be welcomed if you're casually-dressed. Best of all you won't be rushed out at the end of your meal. The... More

Dined here last night with my boyfriend - had booked after reading reviews on tripadvisor. We were staying in the Mondrian hotel and this is about a 5 minute walk from there. He had the set menu which is really good value, about £16 for 2 courses - he had ham hock terrine to start and hake and vegetable broth... More

I had to go to London today and, having completed my business, fancied a decent lunch, rather than a pint and a sandwich, before my train home. RSJ, only a short walk from Waterloo was the obvious answer and it certainly came up trumps. They have an excellent and very reasonably priced lunch menu but today I opted for two... More

My friend and I stopped by after seeing Electra at the Old Vic for a lovely meal. A sauvignon blank to start with and then on to starters which comprised of arbroath smokies with a duck egg and salad. Venison as a main which was perfectly cooked, A robust red to go with our meal which was just perfect. It... More

Stayed at Mondrian Hotel and were looking for somewhere to eat within walking distance. Found RSJ on Tripadvisor - about 10 minutes walk - perfect. Looks nothing from outside but a warm welcome and great food inside plus a fantastic wine list - the owner certainly knows his Loire wines. My wife had hot foie gras with figs and I... More
