You are assured of a wonderful meal, created with such special thought and touches by an amazing chef! The flavors chosen for each and every composition are beautifully presented and combined to allow the guest an explosion of tastes in every bite! The set menu was phenomenal. The staff, including the owner, the sommelier and the front of house are... More

I had wanted to try Dabbous for a while but never got around to it until yesterday. We were six people and went for the tasting menu. All in all, the food was great. Naturally, people's tastes differ. Four of us thought the food to be exceptional, and the other two felt it was average. Serving staff were superb. I... More

Relaxed, calm environment for great food. Simple ingredients cooked to perfection with imagination but no desire to over gild the lily with unnecessary presentation. Lemon tart dessert with marigold petals and blueberries was divine in particular.

What a disappointment for the price we paid... We took the tasting menu. Except the starter (mint & pea) which looked promising, the rest was bland and really average for both textures and taste. On the positive side, the wine list is fair priced. Being used to go to Starred restaurants, I cannot understand how this one got one.

Nice bar and restaurant. Good English food in a modern way. Staff very nice. Two set menus available. There should be more options and wine list a bit expensive.

Drinks with cucumber are delicious - must try. This place Works with a Taste Menu of 5 courses. The first course was a mixture of peas and mint puree that was my favorite course. The seabass I had at the end was ok, the king krab on a creamy soup was great. A blackcurrant ice cream with pistachio nuts as... More

I am no food snob but when I go somewhere like this and pay these prices I expect great service and excellent food. I got neither. The restaurant was busy so maybe the kitchen was under pressure but other than the starter this was quite a rubbish experience. Serving staff appeared inexperienced and some a little arrogant. Got a mix... More

We chose the taster lunch menu. This has to be had by all table members. They cater for allergies and adjust the set courses accordingly. Each course was small and exquisitely tasty. We started with a cold pea dish hat was so concentrated in flavour we wanted to savour each mouthful. We had 7 courses in all. Each one was... More

Paid a visit for lunch because of the Michelin star award. Requires online reservation. I chose a 3-course meal, with burrata cheese salad, charred garlic scapes and cod brandade. Ingredients are pretty fresh, and you can always feel the special touch in every dish. Overall it is a nice experience, but not really impressive. A bit disappointed.

I bought my boyfriend here for his birthday lunch on our day out in London. Lovely small restaurant. Staff were very friendly and attentive. We had the four course tasting which was really lovely, and good value for money. Food was special and the service was warm and friendly. They bought out a dessert with a cane in for my... More
