Harden's says

On a Fitzrovia site that was Laboratorio Pizza – owner Ivan Simeoli has reformatted it as a second branch of his new seafood concept: cocktails, oysters, ceviche… and you can buy fish for your supper too.

Very Good
* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Incredibly fresh fish” (oysters, ceviche, prawns with truffle…) “and sea-themed cocktails” help win a strong thumbs-up for Ivan Simeoli’s “friendly” new Fitzrovia seafood bar… and you can buy seafood to take home for your supper, too. He launched it in May 2021, and it’s inherited the (sometimes “noisy”) premises, furniture and decor of what was formerly his venture, Laboratorio Pizza (RIP).

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).
