Oysters and other fishy treats – plus an interesting selection of wine – headline at this family-run two-year-old, which, on initial reports, is a bit too good to be located in Crouch End. It’s well decked out too, with green banquette seating and a white marble bar.
Harden's survey result
“Big flavours and lots of spice” characterise the “inventive sharing plates of seafood” from the British Isles, prepared with influences from around the world, at this “lovely” (if “cramped” and “noisy”) Crouch End three-year-old, where “there’s always a great vibe and staff are super-friendly”. Top Tip – “fabulous squid-ink bread and whipped butters”.
“Top-notch small plates, oysters and superb fishy delights” – plus an interesting selection of wine and “lovely service” – inspire nothing but rave reviews for this family-run two-year-old, which didn’t get the memo that good restaurants aren’t allowed in Crouch End. It’s well decked out too, with green banquette seating and a white marble bar. They must be doing something right, as they have already opened a second place in Hackney (see Hackney Coterie).
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. 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).

Lyon's Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Finely presented food. Interesting wine list. Not cheap but worth it."
"Frequent visits, for groups through to a snack at the bar. Prices can move up if you get tempted by the oysters, but excellent quality ingredients with an Asian twist justify prices. Acoustics can challenge at times, but services is warm and professional."
