Yes, this restaurant is one of the best three my husband and I have ever tried. Everything was perfect. If you are crazy about food you must to put it on your list. Eating there was like going back in time to a day in your childhood when you and your family spent it on the beach. Bravo!!!

We were very excited to be going to The Fat Dack while on holiday with my daughter a few years ago as it was a birthday celebration for my English sister in law from her son. It was really quite different from any other resaurant I had been to. The dishes served were very adventurous and as I don't like... More

A big heartfelt thanks to everyone at the Fat Duck for making our wedding anniversary on Tuesday an absolutely amazing experience. The friendliness and helpfulness of all the front of house staff was beyond criticism, and the quality and inventiveness of all the kitchen staff elevated the dining experience to an amazing level. Superb!

A once in a lifetime treat, the food is incredible, the service unbelievable, and whilst very expensive it is worth it. We arrived at 7pm and didn't leave till 1am - it didn't actually feel like we were there for 6 hours - though towards the end we were all starting to get a little tired. My wife was pregnant...

You just have to come and experience this food & wine journey for yourselves! I don't want to give too much away, but it was mind blowing and we travelled all the way from Australia!! Need I say anymore!!

What a rip off! Real food blended for people with no teeth. Not one exceptional item on the menu. People rating this place must be embarrassed by how much they've paid for a very mediocre experience.

From the moment you enter the Fat Duck, you forget the outside world and travel on Hestons journey with him. The food as expected was without fault, and the flavours of each course were exciting, and the four hours that it took to eat the meal flew by. My son now wants me to take him after his A levels...

OK, this is a hard review to write, because you do want a lot of elements to be surprises. I have been to the Fat Duck before and found it one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had. So much so, I thought I would treat my partner. The new menu/experience is almost completely different, so if you... More

We agreed to go with friends to celebrate both our wedding anniversaries. We had no idea what it would be like, although we knew about Heston Blumintil's scientific food creations and the history of his restaurants. The only way to describe our evening is to say it was an experience which we will never forget. The theme when we went... More

Absolutely incredible food - the preparation and effort that goes into the experience is just mind-bending. The only reason I've not given it 5 stars is because of the price, which I believe is justifiable give the time and effort that goes into each dish, but once you start adding drinks etc it really skyrockets, and leaves you wondering if...
