I wanted to be blown away by Honey & Co given some of the reviews recently but it didn't quite hit that spot for me or my partner. We went on a Saturday lunch and it was packed. Clearly popular given how quiet this area of Fitzrovia is at weekends. Booking absolutely required. It's tiny and cramped but we expected that. Staff were very friendly and helpful despite being so busy. I'd say unusually friendly for London. The food, which is the main event, was good but perhaps not quite as brilliant as we would have liked. The falafel starter went down well as did a good octopus. Good seasoning in both. The mains were also enjoyable though I found the stuffed courgettes I had just a little too lemony for my personal taste. Maybe as a carnivore I was regretting having gone for a non-meat choice. The cheesecake was a revelation and did hit the brilliant spot for me. Overall we were left hoping it had just been that little bit better given all the hype. We've both eaten well in the Middle East, including Israel, and maybe we have been a little bit spoiled and our standards set too high. Don't let this review put you off as it is a great place and a wonderful addition to the dining scene in London. I wouldn't hesitate to go again but I might just lower my expectations a tad.
