The food was very good - beautifully presented and very fresh and flavoursome. There was a good, but not extensive selection on the menu. The only criticism is that we felt the staff were a bit over zealous and eager to remove our plates, on a couple of occasions, before we had finished with them which made us feel a... More

Went for an early dinner with my family, which meant we could have the set menu. The food was lovely, portion sizes just right so we could have all three courses, and with it being so reasonably priced, why wouldn't you have three courses! Service excellent too.

Came on a busy Friday evening as my partner booked the Barbican Kitchen as a surprise for my birthday. We had both never been before but it was a perfect evening. The service from the girl that served us was efficient and not too pushy and the food was amazing. Lovely atmosphere and we will definitely be returning soon. Probably... More

We hadn't visited the kitchen for a few years so we thought we would give it a try. First impressions were good and the menu was just what we fancied on this occasion. Our first course was mussels and unfortunately they were not cooked to our taste and only just opened meaning you had to prize them open and what... More

Having not visited for about a year, decided to go again in mid March. . This really is an excellent restaurant slightly hidden away in the Plymouth gin building in the Barbican. The meet and greet was warm and genuine, our table was ready. the menues were spotless and clearly presented. Unusually we both chose the same from the special... More
