Wow!!!!!! Nothing can describe it. And you dont want someone else to cloud your own experience. Taste explotion. Delicate and beautiful plates. Surprice flavors and gimics. Food to die for. Winetasting menu is fabolous. Ordered the biggest one. 595£ per person and worth it. Krug champagne, Montrachet Wine and 15 others. ALL fantasticly paired with the food. 1 1/2 hour... More

...no seriously. Where dreams are made. It is difficult to write this review without spoilers - i do not want to give any, you see the surprise is all part of this experience. If you are lucky enough to get a ticket to go here, do yourself a favour, visit the Fat Duck website and leave the rest of your... More

This is an absolute must. I booked here as a surprise 30th birthday present and it didn't disappoint. An amazing experience from start to finish, food is incredible down to every course. We had paired wines with each course which was also good. Each course the waiter explained every little detail. Yes there is no doubt that this place is... More

I came here for my 35th Birthday and forgot to write a review and now I will be returning to Bray to visit the Waterside in tomorrow so I thought I best write one. We came here as a surprise Birthday lunch gift from my wife followed by a trip to the Harry Potter studios. First impressions of the restaurant... More

As expected very good but a little over the top. Not the place to go if you dont want to see £1400 for four people evaporate. Some very nice touches with the presentation including the liquid nitrogen cocktails in front of you and later the minitaure gummy scotch bottles. Expected a little of a show but 5 hours worth was...

It has taken us years to secure a table at The Fat Duck - it was absolutely worth the wait. This is a truly phenomenal culinary experience. It is ruinously expensive so can you justify the cost....? I think you can because this is not simply lunch or dinner, this is an experience. Prepare to go on a journey -... More

A long awaited trip to The Fat Duck was inspiring to say the least. My wife booked online and managed to reserve dinner for 2. I will not give too much away about the food but the experience (and yes it's an experience) was one to remember. Exceptional food and wine accompanied by superb service. Highly recommended.

Every single detail blew us away and exceeded.our expectations. The decor was minimal so as not to distract from the food and service. We opted for the wine matching and every glass perfectly complemented the food. The service was perfection with every dish perfectly explained and served with a flair. It is hard to get a reservation especially if you... More

This was an amazing experience which I don't think I will ever forget! The food was exquisite, but also every dish said a story. From the time you get to the door to get in to the time you say buy - there is nothing you can fault the restaurant for! Everything is perfect: food, staff, interior design, every little... More

Everyone who loves good food must go at least once to The Fat Duck. This restaurant is part of the triumvirate of excellence together with Alinea in Chicago and Noma in Copenhagen
