AMAZING, that's really all I need to say !!! My, now, husband took me to the Fat Duck, the weekend that he proposed to me (-in March 2013). It is the most fantastic experience and I will never forget it. It is very expensive if you look at it as " just a meal " - BUT, if you look... More

Treated my wife to a meal here for her graduation. Can't fault the food, the combinations of flavours were all fantastic, even though they were things we probably wouldn't normally have ordered on any other menu. We loved the theatre of it all. The staff were lovely and friendly, very attentive, very knowledgeable, not at all intimidating.

At Fat Duck on Saturday afternoon in party of 5. First time. Nothing can really prepare you for the theatre that unfolds. Started at 1pm came out at 6pm (last out). Short intervals between the 14 courses. I did no research altho' one cannot avoid knowing about the snail porridge and the sounds of the sea. I think the less... More

The experience was once in a lifetime and I recommend anyone who has the opportunity to visit the fat duck to do so. Whilst one may need to save up some fair penny for the privilege it is well worth it. Heston and his gastronomic magic worked wonders and definitely played mind tricks as what you taste did not necessarily... More

It really is wonderful. The bill for two for food, pairing wines and service came to £800. I would normally only consider spending that sort of money on something if I can drive it away. However it's well worth making an exception for this, it really is a life experience. The only down side is it's a bit like flying... More

This has been on my bucket list for a long long while, and I finally managed to justify it due to a double celebration. I was hugely excited, and was looking forward to something I knew was likely to be something I would only experience once in my life. I was not disappointed. From the attentive service to the elegant... More

Primarely you would visit this Restaurant for its gastronomic madness, the creativity in presenting the food, the seashelfs with seabreeze, the foam crawling along the plates, the surprises in each course - never being a dissapointment - the second option if you dont eat froi grass, and I fully enjoyed the passionate waiters all 5 of them for our table...

A meal at the fat duck is a whole sensory experience, not just a meal. The food is exceptional and if you can afford it, go for the wine pairing too - the wines are brilliantly matched to compliment and enhance the food.
