We have been here many times, but most recently for an anniversary. This is the most welcoming venue- all of the staff are warm, friendly and helpful. The drinks menu is extensive and they have some superb wine. But to my mind, it is in the food that they truly excel. All of the dishes are fresh and delicious, and... More

This place was around for a couple of years before I even noticed it. Now, I can't stop finding excuses to eat here! Excellent service from friendly and attentive staff, a great atmosphere, and truly gorgeous food. Prices are modest, too. I have been to this restaurant several times, and I heartily recommend it.

Friends of Flavours is a consistently great restaurant serving delicious food. Since they have become more popular they have put their prices up so they are no longer the quick and cheap meal we'd grab if we came home late from work, but the food remains fantastic, nonetheless (it's also a shame they have lost their linen napkins and replaced...

We booked a table for approximately 20 at 9.30 on Friday night. We were unsure exactly how many were coming and we all had luggage as we had travelled from Glasgow. Nothing was a problem for the staff. They could not have been more friendly or helpful. They were great with the kids. The food was delicious and so much... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by friends so thought we'd give it a try. I'm so glad we did. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and we were lucky to get the last table for 2 as we hadn't booked. I wasn't expecting it to be so busy on a Tuesday evening! We both went for the... More

We weren't expecting a restaurant of this quality in the high street of a small area in south London. It was delicious and the service was exceptional. Highly recommended.

You'd never expect to find a restaurant of this quality tucked away in a south London neighborhood but thank goodness we did. It's classic Italian food well cooked and served with a smile. The staff are very friendly and professional, and having visited several times, they remember us and are extremely welcoming. We love having dinner here!

We've been past this restaurant many times on the bus but today we finally went in for lunch. It was lovely; I wish we'd been in before. I had prawns with a honey and chilli dip. They were deep fried but not at all greasy. The pasta stuffed with aubergine in a tomato sauce was delicious too. We remembered Bruno... More

Delicious food, good beverage list and friendly staff. What more can you want? Every dish was well prepared and quite delicious. Coincidently our group all ordered fish, sea food or pasta and all were really good. On previous occasions our family had eaten meat and chicken and said they were always more than happy. My grilled sea bass with an... More
