Have never been to this place before but have been a couple of times recently whilst on The Shoreditch Pub Crawl on Saturdays. Really nice vibe for dinner/cocktails or a big group night out, would definitely go back.

We were a group of friends who went there on a Sat night. It wasn't terribly busy but there was a barman who was very slow and irritable. He got our order wrong and after we pointed that out, he just took back what he...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

"A lively, buzzy, stylish eatery and meeting place in an exciting part of town. The Light is a newcomer on the Shoreditch scene which is attracting lots of positive attention. The funky decor and French/Mediterranean menu, attract a young, vivacious crowd, including city folk, media and design types. Lunch is busy, evenings romantic, and you won't have to shout your sweet nothings over the pulsing background music, because there isn't any. Aaah, start with a half-dozen oysters served with shallot vinaigrette, pickled lemon and chilli salsa, either with a pint of Guinness or a glass of champagne. Main favourites include oxtail in crepinette, with celeriac puree, roast shallots and root veg. Blistering wine list. "
