I visited the restaurant for dinner with my partner on a Saturday night, the food was very good. We took the set menu and each dish - from start to finish was great. Fantastic flavours, nice portions (not too big not too little), the courses came out at a nice steady pace with time to relax between each one. The... More

Wow. Completely astounding food. Beautifully complimentary flavours. Who knew that avocado with almond broth could be so delicious. I honestly have not had as good a meal as this for several years. Cool surroundings and a bar downstairs that we didn't know was there. Can't fault anything and only wish the reviews on here were more reflective of reality. You... More

I have visited this restaurant twice and both trips have even utterly memorable. The best dish a very simple asparagus with mayonnaise and toasted hazelnuts. No knives and forks. Pick up the asparagus in ones hand, dip in glorious home made mayonnaise, cover in hazelnuts and eat. So simple but so perfect. Dishes always unusual and served at the perfect... More

The food and service were of the same high standard that we had experienced at our first visit earlier in the year. Once again we chose the tasting menu for it's variety of dishes. The flavours were memorable and all the courses were well presented. I would recommend Dabbbous to anyone seeking an intimate restaurant for Fine Dining.

There are two menus. A tasting menu and a set menu, so selection is limited. We had the set menu and the food is good and interesting. This is a more down to earth one star michelin.

I visited Dabbous with a couple of work chums on a Thursday evening, we ordered the tasting menu and therefore can only comment on this food! The food was delightful, interesting and a nice eclectic mix when travelling through the courses. Service was attentive and non intrusive. The only one negative is that once the dishes have been served, the... More

We had the taster menu with accompanying wines, but no course or wine left us wanting more. We'd waited months to get a table and were left wondering why?

The good: Service The bad: Food - What restaurant has only has two starters, one raw fish and the other baked aubergine? Price - ludicrously expensive for what it is Decor - Faux industrial, echoey, uncomfortable Location - If you are in Fitzrovia fine, but it has to be the most over-hyped part of London. Its the back side of... More

Initially I was attracted to this restaurant because of its architecture/ interior. Moreover the menu was alluring. What I found was a nice dinner spot with 2 tasting menu options. Plates looked creative and the food was very enjoyable. Ideal to enjoy an evening with your better half. The service was very down to earth and attentive. The wine choices... More
