Accompaniments somewhat overpowering

A pleasant meal somewhat spoiled by heavy handed use of flavourings in the kitchen. Salmon with horseradish starter would be more accurately described as horseradish with salmon. So much strong horseradish that the salmon couldn't be tasted. Spicy spatchcock chicken was very good but again the... read more

Faultless from the food to the service. You will struggle to find somewhere better within the area and I will continue to return time and time again.

Everything about this place was good! The service, the ambience, and most of all the food. By London standards it wasn't horribly expensive.

We went on a Tuesday night. Fairly quiet in the restaurant .Good service... Madeleine Peroux playing unobtrusively in the background (not the actual woman!). Mondays to Thursday's, lunch and evening, they have a set menu. Two courses for £15, three for £20. This was excellent value. An example would be squash and Parmesan risotto to start, then a fish curry... More

We entered Joanna's and I found myself in a... More

We went here recently for our anniversary on a s Sunday and it wasn't as busy as a Friday or Saturday night and we were well looked after. Not cheap but worth the extra expense, especially if it's a birthday/ special occasion. Our bill came to £80 with a tip and that was 1 starter to share, 2 mains.... Which... More

My husband and I have been going to Joannas for approx 10 years and it is our fave local restaurant. We always receive excellent customer service, great food and the restaurant has a wonderful ambiance. The menu caters for all tastes and is changed every so often. Our favourite meals are the pork belly, the lamb cutlets and the confit... More

We arrived early so sat at the very welcoming bar and had a couple of cocktails during happy hour (from 5pm - 7pm). These were expertly made and delicious. It was obviously very popular as lots were being made and it was very interesting to watch. My main course of crab risotto with cod and spinach was delicious with the... More
