“Great service and food - one or two things could be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Overall we had a lovely evening here. We went on the BYO night so not only did we save significantly on the wine but we also drank what we liked even if (horror) it did not go 100% with the fish.

We opted for the tasting menu which was a bit of a mixed bag.

Scallops (raw) were great. Interesting flavours and a great way to try raw scallops.
Lobster risotto also fantastic - great flavours and I could have eaten 4 or 5 times the amount as it was so good.

The two mains in the menu were mackerel and bass - these felt like fillers because it is supposed to be a fish restaurant and while they were executed well they were not very exciting or very large. I know it is a (6 course) tasting menu but never the less they were little bigger than canapes and certainly not distinguishable in size from the "starters).

The pineapple dessert was great - two very tart/acidic fruits (pineapple and passion fruit) toned down to perfection. The chocolate and lime tart was dry and disappointing - a small tart served as part of a tasting menu should be more exciting than this and it was a disappointing way to finish the meal.

Overall I enjoyed the almost 4 hour dinner, and left content but not full (good and a bad thing).

Adjust the portion sizes slightly and remove the tart and the menu is a winner.

Staff were generally top notch.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Just back from the Restaurant, having had the set menu for lunch..which, at 20 pounds a head, is amazing value for this quality - food and service.

There were four of us. Between us, we had all of starters and mains. All tasty, beautifully constructed and presented and with sensible portion size (i.e. not too small but not uncomfortably filling!). Lovely selection of fish and meat. What made the meal so special was the service, the attention to us and the sheer professionalism and discrete accommodation by the kitchen of one of our party who is lactose intolerant. (I mentioned this when booking and everything had been already thought through to make our lunch so good- from the oil with the bread instead of butter (we normally have to request this) to the kitchen having a special dessert ready in case we wanted that.
Thank you so much - we will be back

“Almost brilliant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

I'll say it again, almost brilliant! Outlaw's knows what it is doing, most of the time. The welcome was extremely friendly, as was the service in the bar before dinner. The food itself was very, very good, and the service absolutely excellent; there were five choices each for starters, mains, and desserts - not extensive, but enough variety. The bar area and restaurant are not huge, so a very nice intimate atmosphere dominates, and there is no awful background music to dull the conversation. So what went wrong? Well, they got the white wine wrong (second time around), and how many glasses we had; but, they made no fuss, and altered the bill to the correct amount, however, for a top quality place it should not happen. Without doubt I would recommend this restaurant; it is unquestionably very good (excellent without the mistakes), at a price; but hey, this is in central London though!.

“Very impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Had Lunch there today with two friends. The service was absolutely outstanding matched by very accomplished food. We had the Set menu which was excellent value indeed. I had a delectable fish soup topped with squid to start, then confit of duck with a sublime sticky reduction and finally a most heavenly blackberry sponge with vanilla ice cream. All three of us, loved the things we had chosen. The restaurant is modern yet cosy - and today, practically full. Also, it is brilliantly close to Knightsbridge tube. I would highly recommend Outlaws and will most definitely be returning.
