Savory food was excellent with a capital E. Winter endive with gingerbread, mint & bergamot was one of those rare crazy genius dishes that works so well your mouth is sure it's tasted that before even when it obviously hasn't. Octopus was cooked perfectly, pork was so tender and succulent. Service was a bit confused and the dessert (Gram flour pancake cooked over charcoal with honey, lemon & beeswax) was decidedly a miss but the savory courses were good enough for me to overlook those (admittedly minor) flaws and say, "don't miss it."

Disappointing. Three pieces of lettuce opened the set menu and dictated the tone for a collection of unimaginative, high-margin dishes. The Iberico pork was a highlight, as was the octopus, potato and fennel dish, but all in all there was a disappointing lack of ceremony about Dabbous. I wish we'd eaten here three years ago, with the hope it wouldn't have come across as such a well oiled, soulless money spinner. London has so many interesting and cheaper places to eat, all of which make Dabbous look out of touch and boring. That's all... Oh, and the gram flour pancake, that had sand like texture was a low point. 🙈

Food: This place is famed for it's innovative cuisine and boy does it deliver! Pretty much every dish was a complex combination of flavours that I've definitely not tasted before. Whilst all these flavours wowed, I would I was impressed by the exoticness of the flavours, rather than saying the food all tasted amazing. The cocktails were very nice especially the earthy beetroot cocktail they had on. Price: Expensive, but you knew that much when you came across this place. Suck it up and get the taster menu. Ambience: Dimly lit and subdued. The decor is quite industrial which I was not expecting; it worked nicely in the downstairs bar, but a bit too rough for such an expensive dinner. Service: The staff were friendly and courteous though our waiter appeared to be a little new to the place so minor mistakes were forgiven. Worth a Visit: Definitely. As I said, the food is completely different - whether you'll still come back after your second or third time is another story.

I have to say the whole experience was underwhelming. Service was attentive although not particularly welcoming and just "matter of fact" throughout the evening. Now I understand some people prefer this and that's fine, but it's not what I expected from a place so hyped about. What's more important is that food was just bland and lacking punch. We had the 6 course tasting menu and, to my surprise, a restaurant serving a fixed set of courses has problems keeping a steady pace between them, so we were left waiting between them. The pre-desert and the desert could have been inverted and be equally disappointing - a peeled grapefruit with watery burned sugar and first, and elderflower ice-cream after. It all gets compounded by the decor, made to resemble an austere industrial complex (cheap pine tables and poor lighting included), which in the middle of central London is looks just ridiculous. In short, Dabbous lacks imagination and talent; it's a £250-a-couple cookie cutter restaurant for boring people.

Very nice food served in a delightful and sometimes surprising way. Nice wife selection to accompany the food. Avoid the caneles flavored with vanilla, not worth it.

Great ambiance, friendly staff and Oskar's bar is just a perfect place to hangout over drinks. Did not try their food but will definitely go back to give that a try too.

Loved both meals I've had here in my time. Felt informal too, which is a plus in my book.

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.
