This was my second visit to the Palomar with my previous being a couple of years ago when I queued for the bar. This time I went with my parents for lunch rather than dinner and it was exceptional. The service was superb and they...More

I have been to Palomar before over a year ago and its popularity means that my spur of the moment eating decisions usually rule it out. This time I booked ahead and found it as good as ever. The room is small, quite loud and...More

When visiting London some friends recommended this place to us and we were very pleased. Only complaint is they are too on it with filling the water LOL. Would return.

This place has become very popular in London. I didn't know Israeli cuisine, and I am not sure this is truly Israeli, but I am sure quality of food is very good. It is not a cheap place, expect to pay around 40£ for starter,...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

Yes, absolutely! The Apollo is on Shaftesbury Avenue, and The Palomar is on a side street off of this - probably less than a 2-3 minute stroll. I'd recommend it, truly.

I remember it being casual, although we 'dressed' up a bit. However, we went for lunch. Might be best to check.
