Thought it was going to be good - wasn't expecting such superb service. Not stuffy service, genuine and friendly - Food was exceptional as were the cocktails.

For starters and mains we had: Kubaneh, Burnt Courgette Tzatziki, Yiddish Style Hand Chopped Chicken Liver Pate, Beef Tataki and the Shakshukit. Everything was really delicious but I would highlight the Shakshukit and the Four Lemons & A Poppy dessert, both absolutely memorable!!

This is a wonderful and chaotic little place in Rupert Street, off Shaftesbury Avenue. Chaotic because it is tiny, a long thin room taken up mostly by the bar and around 20 stools. At the back there are seven or eight tables for those who...More

Loved the variety of food and fun drinks, but especially loved sitting at the bar. Been there twice and both times the chefs, the manager, the host, and the bartenders (all at the bar) are extremely engaging. They chat up the food and drinks and...More

Went here for a lunch with a business acquaintance. We had booked a table in the back of the restaurant rather than at the bar (which looked like it might be good date night territory). The waitress was knowledgable about the dishes and enthusiastic about...More

A busy bustling restaurant where you can wait for weeks and weeks to book a table though sitting at the bar is an option. We were served by an excellent waitress who was not perturbed by the fact that we tasted four wines before deciding...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
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.
