I have been a big fan of this restaurant for a long time and try and call in whenever I am London. It's always been great but when I took some colleagues in recently they were blown away by the food and quality of service....More

Looking for a light lunch in Islington, we thought we would try Ottolenghi's three salad offer. Very tasty food but perhaps a touch overcomplicated? Top prices accompanies top quality ingredients but sometimes a little simplicity just wins through?

Excellent dishes and served beautifully. Some of the best vegetarian dishes I've had and very creatively cooked and presented. Not too keen on the decor but the food and customer service made up for it.

Everything is so packed with flavours here. My meal was so inspiring it made me want to buy all the Ottolenghi cookbooks. Really love this place.

Luckily we had a table for two and didn't have to share a communal table, which I wouldn't fancy at all - and don't see the point of! Service was efficient and pleasant. It's basically like having tapas - hot and cold dishes in small-ish...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
