Anniversary meal with the other half and was recommended this as one of the best places to dine in Croydon. And they were right. Food seemed French inspired but with good quality British ingredients shown off to their best. Nice use of game in the starters and mains. Deserts used seasonal fruits and were elegantly presented. This is fine dining... More

Paid a return visit to somewhere we used to frequent when it opened a few years ago before we moved away. We recently returned for a Friday night out and this was the chosen venue.A group of 7 friends led to some varied menu choices and to a man (& woman) there wasn't a complaint raised about quality or quantity....

Every time I go to Alberts Table I am always impressed. It's wonderful to have quality cuisine outside of London. The service is top notch.. Quietly attentive. The environment is elegantly understated, and last but by no means least the food is excellent. The menu changes every day, so no risk of boredom. Some other restaurants which have tried to... More

If I go to a restaurant the food is the most important part and I rate the establishment on the basis of the 'food enjoyment to cost ratio' and I believe this is where they failed to deliver. We paid £90 for two with one cocktail between us. We ordered: Starter: Tureen of rabbit with local bacon, apple puree and... More

Visited for the first time for Saturday lunch and was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. I had been told it was good but still was not expecting much. I was wrong to have been skeptical. The service was very good and, although the restaurant was not full (a very rainy, miserable day probably didn't help bring in passing custom) the... More

I have visited this restaurant with friends and expected an amazing meal and it was quite disappointing as the food was just average with above average prices. Not really worth going in my opinion, there are better restaurants nearby where you can have a meal in a more relaxed atmosphere. Won't be coming back I'm afraid.

Visited Alberts Table for lunch today with my husband without making a reservation first. The maître d, Patrice, made us feel very welcome and as usual the food and service were excellent.

I attach a copy of a letter I sent to the management at Albert's table as my review. I received no reply. I have eaten here three times, and my feelings have not changed regarding this place. If you are looking for a good restaurant avoid Croydon, you can do so much better in Clapham Junction or central London. I... More

Food is considerable limited in option. Service was really nice from the waitress but to have a 12.5% charge for waiting 5 tables was ridiculous that came to £15. We had a gourmet society card and when we called to book the table it was assumed that it would be 2 for 1 per 2 people. But alas this was... More
