Just finished main course of Stone Bass, which was fantastic. Not even received the dessert yet, but top marks awarded already!

“excellent food in relaxed atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

not stiff, but very relaxed - and the food is really good.

Smallest remark is that my rib eye steak was not perfectly hot when it arrived at our table. Otherwise all was perfect.

“Nice neighbourhood type of restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Off the beaten track, on the South bank, in walking distance of Blackfriar Bridge/station, this neighbourhood style restaurant caters principally to locals. Good service, nice food (nothing super fancy, just good, but with a nice level of sophistication). Nice brasserie type of relaxed atmosphere/noise level. We believed good value for money (and not that expensive).

“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

This was our first visit to the Laughing Gravy. Great name to start off with, but it was hard to fault once we got there. The staff were young and friendly, the wine was fantastic, the food delicious and the atmosphere is fine for a slightly special evening but still informal and not at all stiff. It's also well located near the Southbank centre so if you are going for a concert or play, you can have an early dinner and then walk over in about 15 minutes. Really good.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We had a spectacular meal at The Laughing Gravy. The food was superb and the service was fantastic. I was a little worried taking my friend out who is a Restauranteur, never an easy challenge! She had an amazing time and is taking the duck & rabbit scotch eggs idea back to her restaurant to put on their menu! Thank you for a truly wonderful evening.
