“Paradise for serious foodies”“a street notorious for once being crime-ridden is now home to Hackney’s best-value dining experience: £39 for a seven-course tasting menu”, according to practically all reports on ex-Pidgin chef, Adolfo de Cecco’s “intimate-feeling” foodie venture. “Thoughtful food is excellently executed by a team with evident passion” and if “a few technical slip-ups can creep in, the charming, passionate service (often by the chefs themselves) more than makes up for this”.

Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

My wife Silvia and I have not eaten inside ...
Reviewed 1 months, 22 days ago

"My wife Silvia and I have not eaten inside a restaurant since the start of the Covid epidemic, though we did visit the garden at Casa Fofó a few times before it was roofed in with plastic to weather proof it. Since the end of the last lockdown we have visited Casa Fofó some 15 or more times and sat at a table placed out on the pavement for us under the canopy. In the winter and early spring we had to wear our winter sailing gear but this was no deterrent, and will not be in the future as we move into autumn & winter again! The reason for this determination to revisit Casa Fofó on such a regular basis is the shear quality and variety of the tasty food and the truly wonderful, friendly service. We actually had an apology one time when Adolfo repeated a dish we had had only a fortnight before! Our rating for ambience is a carry over from the last time we ate inside in January 2020 and does not reflect the entertainment we get from watching passers by as they come and go when visiting the supermarket next door."
