Going to Nopi for brunch is a real experience in great, simple cooking and presentation. We went over the Easter break and had a delicious brunch there; the black coffees were strong, using a rich blend, and the kale, cucumber and apple juice was exceptional - so fresh and vibrant. When the food arrived we were very impressed by both the style and generosity of it: there were no scanty brunch portions here: French toast was chunkily cut, perfectly cooked and accompanied by a brilliant compote; the croissant was fresh and buttery; and the skakshuka is worth going for alone: spicy tomato sauce, sharp labneh and on the point braised eggs. Amazing, and made even better by olive oil-drenched griddled crusty bread. We can't wait to go back!

NOPI was somewhere I always wanted to go while living in London and it did not disappoint. My friend and I chose the seating downstairs as we preferred the more casual shared table space. The staff were amazing and basically chose our dishes for us - which were all perfect. I would highly recommend the Valdeón cheesecake - it's a complete experience in itself. Don't hold back on the menu, try everything. I can't wait to return!

You might think bitter is a hard taste to appreciate...it isn't at Yotam Ottolenghi's Nopi. The mathematical theorem states two negatives can become a positive. That is what has been proven here! Do try the roasted beet root and a glass of orange wine, No - not the fruit, the color. This is an homage to Tahini and the uses of dates.
Go Wild...

Having picked NOPI our due to its location, rankings and reviews, we were lucky enough to get a seat upstairs at the bar for dinner. You might be a little put off about sitting at the bar but we thoroughly enjoyed a different experience, with sufficient room for us and our bags and we loved interacting with the bar staff who were excellent throughout.

After ordering a couple of cocktails (one bespoke one - thank you!), we picked a few dishes out to start with... the courgette fritters, the aubergine dish and the lamb sweetbreads with oyster mayo were fabulous. We topped it up with some breads, burrata and an oven baked cheesecake with beetroot.

After a little orange wine (well worth trying), we shared a delicious chocolate desert which was just enough between two.

Now I must say that once you start adding alcohol to the bill (cocktails are £12-£14), it’s certainly not a cheap eat but then we are in London, it is an Ottolenghi restaurant and it was a beautiful meal and dining experience. Highly recommended!

First time but unforgettable experience. Visited with my wife and our son and his girlfriend. Great food and great ambience.
