“A nice steak but nothing special”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We ate here with a living social deal, the food was good, an average steak worth it at the price we paid but wouldn't pay full price.

“Superbly Cooked Steak”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I dined at Meat People on New Year's Day. The weather was atrocious, but our damp spirits were soon lifted as we were seated in the warming atmosphere Meat People offers.

The starters, ox's heart burger and halloumi wrapped in bacon, were just right, both in taste and size. The burger was a particular highlight for me. I would certainly recommend it.

As for the main, we opted for the meat platter: onglet, iberico and rump. Each piece of meat was cooked to our tastes. We had an assorted of sauces to accompany the meal; all of which did not disappoint. The bone marrow gravy is definitely worth trying.

All in all, the food was extremely well presented and cooked wonderfully. I will be back.

“Well worth a visit.”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Went with a Groupon voucher. Steak and Chips and a Pint of Beer for 2.
We got a bottle of Lager instead of the Pint. The Steak was really nice, and the Chips were delicious. There was no hasssle in trying to get us to buy wine or desserts etc. Very friendly waitress.
One slight grumble - The chairs are a bit like old school chairs. A bit uncomfortable.
But on the whole, not a bad place. we would definitely go again - Especially if we had a voucher.

“Best kept secret in Angel Islington”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Meat People is based where the old S&M restaurant used to be. It is just off Upper Street where it seems a lot of people hang out these days. However if avoid the crowds of Upper Street and come here you will find a real gem.

From the moment we walked in we were treated by a professional yet casual service. The food arrived promptly and the steak was of equal quality to that you would find at some of the better/top steak houses in London.

A great place to take a special someone on a date in Islington where it has a relaxed and quieter atmosphere yet quality food
