Harden's survey result
Aggi Sverrisson’s “sublime”, Icelandic-inspired cuisine – in particular “a refreshing and very imaginative twist on fish” – again wins one of the survey’s highest food-ratings for his well-established flagship, just off Portman Square. To the odd reporter, the low-key space (actually part of a hotel, although you only find out when you look for the WC) can seem “dull and cold”, but most reporters like the fact that “there’s something a bit different about the style of the place”. “Very warm and welcoming” service only adds to its refreshingly un-poncy approach.
“Unbelievable… everything was magnificent!” – Aggi Sverrisson’s “more-than-first-class” venture (now over ten years old) is a showcase for his truly “superb” Scandi-inspired cooking paired with an outstanding wine selection, too. “Service is occasionally hit and miss but mostly good”. Top Tip – don’t miss the fish tasting menu here.
For 31 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).
