“Always on form, always interesting” – Will Lander and Daniel Morgenthau’s acclaimed Fitzrovian has won a serious culinary reputation over the years, with both an à la carte and tasting menu available lunch and dinner. Fans say its interior is “lovely and modern”, but – despite its “charming” service – the set-up can also seem a little too no-nonsense; the focus is very much on the modern European cuisine – “every dish is a success”.

Will Lander & Daniel Morgenthau’s “stark and simple” Fitzrovia three-year-old shot to fame on opening, thanks to its “clever” cuisine (for which it was quickly awarded a Michelin star); its “super choice of perfectly conditioned fine wines by the glass”; and sure-footed service that “combines professionalism with warmth and enthusiasm”. Even those who feel “it’s dropped off a little since its debut” feel “it’s still a restaurant to go to if you like to try something new”, and on most accounts a meal here remains “an exciting prospect”.

“An unpretentious Michelin winner” – this Fitzrovia two-year-old offers “modern, informal dining at its very best” and “although it looks a little sparse from the outside, inside the welcome is warm”. “Polite and eloquent” staff offer dishes “combining creativity with attention to detail, plus brilliantly chosen wines” (“ask for the specials list for some well priced fun”). “Success has bred a bit more cockiness with the pricing” however, so it’s no longer quite the ace bargain it debuted as.

For 30 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).
