Have eaten here once when it first opened and also recently. The quality still remains - beautiful creative plates, delicate and interesting flavours. It's obviously not everyday food so it's best for that treat dinner or a foodie outing. The room can feel quite stark and cold so it's nicer to book later in the evening when it's in full service and buzzing (we were the first diners and initially the restaurant lacked atmosphere). The youthful staff are very passionate and cool, it's a hipster version of Michelin dining! The freshly baked bread served in a cute brown paper bag hand-stamped with the date is a nice touch.

Ads:Excellent customer service, ambience and a good wine list. Dis: What let Dabbous down was the food. The food was dull, unoriginal and unsatisfying. I have tried a lot of tasting menus in London (the Ledbury, chotto matte, Nobu for example) and this failed to come close to these. The two main courses were far too similar in taste. The desert was just glorified ice cream. One thing that really annoyed me was i had to eat again after the meal as i was still hungry. You expect the portions to be small at a place like this but Dabbous was at the extreme end of the scale. When you spend £250 for a meal for two the one thing you at least expect is to be comfortably full.

Have been here 3 times now and thought it was great until the last visit - they'd changed the menu. Cocktails are great though.

Outstanding food - but good luck getting a table! With extraordinary food, presented breathtakingly, you'll be in for a real treat. Whether it's delectable, tender meat, foams and soups or rich, homely desserts with a twist, everything that Dabbous serves is delicious. The only problem: you'll find it next to impossible to get a table - they disappear immediately booking opens. Hit the website hourly, and something might appear if you're lucky!

I haven't been to the upstairs restaurant, but the bar downstairs is not pleasant if you have come, like most people, to have a social experience. The bar itself has a DJ despite the fact that there is no dancing so that outrageously loud music can be piped in to ruin any chance of conversation (even if you scream). Moreover, the entire place seems to have been acoustically designed to be as loud as possible - sure, it sounds like everyone is having fun, but you won't be. It's £10 a cocktail, which is standard London prices, but you can get better elsewhere with a chance in hell of actually talking to the people you came with. Would not recommend.

If you like waiting for 6 months for a reservation which then is at 6.30 for your dinner... If you like being seated next to the kitchen even though you are the first guests to arrive and being denied your request to be reseated without being given a reason... If you like being stared at during dinner by a whole group of the waiting staff whose dress code elicits unpleasant associations to the gang from Clockwork Orange... If you like being rushed through the courses of your dinner... If you like sommeliers that do not make recommendations but only state what is already on the menu... If you like a head waiter with unpolished shoes clicking his pen next to your table frenetically throughout your dinner.. If you like to leave a restaurant hungry... If you like to spend nearly 100 quid a head... ...then you should give Dabbous a try to figure out what the buzz is all about. I would describe the cuisine as 'interesting' but will surely not return.

was there last night. was really really good. It is not your usual a la carte menu. prepare to go for a tasting menu or set menu. about £130 per person. but worth it. Rea
