"Fresh mojitos are probably the main reason to go. The food nothing to write home about. Ambience is colourful but a little bit too loud."

"In this prestigious area of St. James's, the set menus are excellent value and compiled with imagination.The service is impeccable - but the vast single room can seem a bit deserted outside peak hours"

"An excellent deal of four courses and a glass of prosecco for £28. Unusually cheese was available as a dessert choice without a premium."

"A great Mexican, a few minutes walk from the craziness of Liverpool Street and Spitalfields. The food is a good standard, very tasty but not quite as good as Wahaca. Service was great, our waiter was really helpful. A good place for a relaxed catch up with friends"

"Exceptional fish that is apparently sourced directly from West Country fishermen Very fresh and as a result not everything on the menu is always available......fine with me as it shows a commitment to only serve the freshest fish Pea purée is fantastic and the monkfish is exceptional Have been several times and found it consistently good"

"Simplicity is the name of the game. Chops - crispy on the outside and juicy in the middle - pork, beef and lamb all delicious. Service adequate and atoms loud and frenetic. Wine a sideshow (shame). My inner caveman loved this place."

"Interesting menu using locally sourced products. Friendly owner & staff. Always very busy. Samphire is not just outside the town centre as previously reported, it is very much in the town centre being only 2 doors away from Wheelers"

Harden's review of the reviews
hawksmoor manchesterJay Rayner weighs in on the north/south restaurant divide question

The Observer's critic-in-chief heads to Manchester to try out the new Hawksmoor and stumbles across a veggie dining room, 1847, serving great food – well, apart from the desserts. Read our roundup of restaurant news in Manchester and enter our Hawksmoor Manchester competition.

 

 

Meanwhile the Guardian's Marina O'Laughlin pays a visit to the much gushed about Kitty Fisher's

Everyone else love, love, loves it but Marina can't help but feel she's ended up at a house party she wasn't quite invited to, particularly as the restaurant staff seem allergic to answering the phone. We can attest to that having called them on at least 10 occasions without success.

 

The award for most ferocious review this week has to go to The Sunday Times's A A Gill

The critic has a thing or two to say about Mayfair's 'ridiculously overpriced' Mexican, Peyote, including: “...fiddly, neurotic preparation with pale, polite taste and silly, parsimonious sharing plates that aren’t bounteous or fun and are more like eating the catering pitch for a drug cartel’s wedding.”

 

Over at The Times, Giles Coren gives his opinion on Russian-imported pizza chain Bocconcino

“Bocconcino isn’t a bad restaurant. It just isn’t a necessary restaurant.” At £202 for pizza and pasta it's not hard to see why Mr Coren might feel that way – mind you, a £46 bottle of wine probably helped nudge the bill up.

 

And last but not least, Ms Maschler reviews Brindisa's new Morada Asador

The Standard's long-standing critic heads to the latest outpost of this tapas chain (in Soho) and finds the meats are the reason to flock here – from the 'delectable' milk-fed lamb to the Secreto Iberico.
