Wonderful! Booked for lunch. A selection of gorgeous breads with olive oil and mixed olives to start … so different & interesting. Then two hot mains with four unusual and very tasty vegetable dishes. It’s a meal you might not have the time - or...skill - to cook at home. Takes you out of your comfort zone, which is why it’s so nice. Accompanied with two chilled glasses of white wine … perfect and more than enough for two. On leaving we passed the shop and were easily persuaded to buy some mouth watering cakes for later🙄More

My daughter and i stopped by for breakfast last Friday, the restaurant was empty as we had made an early start but we were immediately made to feel welcome and that it was no problem to leave the table and browse the shop. We ordered...flat whites which were exemplary and eggs Shakshuka which was out of this world, every composite part perfect, portion size generous but not out facing and presentation rustic but perfect even down to the starched linen wrap round the hot pan handle. Service was discreet and friendly, We had high hopes after 2 years in Canada reading the books and these were exceeded. Bill was 35 for two including tip, please go here.More

Great breakfast today, I had the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs with a side of bacon and my wife ate the cinnamon French toast with jam. Coffee is good and strong. Everything is freshly prepared, the ingredients are first class and servings are large. Service...is friendly and efficient and the bill, at £38 including service, is good value for Islington. One small quirk, why have glass doors on the loos (admittedly frosted!)??More

Having lunch at Ottolenghi in Islington is a feast: extensive choice, all perfect made, friendly staff, good atmosphere, reasonable prices. (For Ottolenghi) Also deserts are absolutely delicious.

I went there for lunch and had one of the best meals I ever had! I am vegetarian and it was really nice to see so many options for me. I recommend the aubergine with tahini dressing! For dessert I had a vegan tangerine cake...which was amazing. The staff is really nice and professional. 10/10 recommendMore

Food is great. Service is second to none. Love coming here for breakfast! The scrambled tofu is to die for. The cakes are all incredible too. I love the chocolate tart with the mascarpone cream + the vegan yuzu and pistachio the best. Would recommend!

The food and the service during our evening meal was of excellent quality and good flavours. However, for an average of two little dishes each, one glass of wine, and half a desert each, the bill came to £50 (inclusive of service) per person £200...for 4)and we left peckish. The prices have clearly escalated significantly and for banquette dining on a shared table this is considerably more than a private members club. I guess they are cashing in on our Covid savings. I would limit the food to takeaway in the day.More

Does what it says on the tin really - all dishes were very tasty and exquisitely presented with great complimentary flavours. The attention to detail and effort put into the vegetable dishes was particularly noteworthy. The Cod dish was delicious, we could have, and nearly...did, order it again. You must have the flourless chocolate tart. You must. Service was very friendly, helpful and quick - shout out to Gio, thanks for making our evening great in all aspects!More

It can be as formal or relaxed as you wish. It really is a "no pressure" type place. Have a lovely meal!

Sorry don't know, suggest just phone them up or drop them a note. We like it here and by London prices it isn't too outrageous. The flavours are interesting mixes and we have never been disappointed. If Theodoros reckons it... More
