“Outstanding fish”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Thus is really excellent. Lovely Greek mezze, especially the spinach and cheese in filo pastry. The fish is simply cooked, to perfection. Excellent value. The service is very friendly and attentive. Unsurprisingly the restaurant has been full on both of our visits,and is very noisy.

“Simply put - Go and eat there”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Its not often that I firmly recommend people to try a restaurant based on my recommendation but the Carob Tree deserves this.

1. Its not fine dining - who cares - the service is warm, friendly and attentive
2. its not fine dining - who cares - the food is very well cooked and the fish plates are splendid
3. Its not fine dining - who cares - I had one of the finest creme caramels I have ever eaten

If Greek food is not your thing then don't go, if you want pretentious food don't go there, but if you want decent value, large well cooked portions, super fish and a lively atmosphere then this is the place for you.

“Finest grilled fish in London”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

One enters Carob Tree to be greeted by Louis and his fine team as though you were a close member of their family . From then onwards the attention to detail and service is impeccable . The fish is always simply grilled and quality the best . Portions are generous and dont be afraid to ask for a "doggy bag" . The place was buzzing on our Saturday night visit . Will definately return .

“Really Good Food”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Really nice food decent portions and the service was good, really enjoyed the liver - well worth visiting.

Possibly the decor could have been a bit more lively but that's just nit picking
