I felt like we were treated so badly..couldn't wait to leave. First waitress barely spoke any English and didn't understand our order. We had our drinks order taken three times by three different people. Red wine was freezing cold and only excuse was "it's kept in the cellar." My friend ordered steak and they didn't ask how she wanted it cooked. When it arrived it literally looked like cat food. Refused us an extra side order of fries they aren't an "official side" on the menu. Generally a lot of flapping and arguing at the back of the restaurant. Couldn't wait to leave.

Based on the ever more bustling Battersea rise the restaurant Soif has developed a bit of a following and reputation over the last couple of years. I’d heard good things from closer friends so it was about time a visit was done. On the off-chance my better half (Katie as she shall now be known) and I arrived without a booking on a rainy Tuesday night – not too late into the evening and already the place had a nice buzz to it. We were sat near the kitchen at what seemed an impossibly narrow table for two people comfortably dining. When i say ‘Impossibly’, I obviously exaggerate, but suffice it to say it wasn't a square table and felt a bit odd. The menu seems quite British, with a contemporary twists and continental elements also. Selections on offer include Duck Rilletes with Cornichons, Abruzzo Bean soup and Pork Rillons with Lentil Vinegrette & Bitter leaves for starterds – with mains showing items like Whole Dorset Crab & Mayonnaise and Red Wine Braised Rabbit Leg with Prunes, Chestnuts and Panceta, Onglet a l’echalotte with Pommes Frites. We went for some Moules Mouclade to share as a starter and then the Lemon Sole Meunière and Pork Galette with January King Cabbage, Carrots and Crushed Potatoes. The starter of Moules was not bad, the sauce was a little watery, and if anything the Moules were perhaps a little overcooked. The accompanying bread was clearly homemade and was pretty good actually. The mains of Lemon Sole and the Pork Galette again weren't bad, the Sole being well cooked and flaky with the Pork galette also not being too bad at all. As far as a lot of things seem nice and appetising on the menu the food we were served was OK, but alas nothing beyond that. I don’t feel a lot of people will be shouting from the rooftops about it unfortunately. It is a shame as I had looked forward to it. Ultimately its up to you. They do say they have a daily new menu, so it could be we were just unlucky and went on one of their slightly off days.

Not bad - pretty competent steak, etc. Wasn't madly impressed, though. Service was fine, although rather slow to let us actually pay for the bill once they'd brought it. Just distinctly average all around, really.

Good but a little inconsistent

I was disappointed by the breakfast menu. But hey the name gives it away, "Soif" means "Thirst" not breakfast :-/. I think it would be better to go for a drink or some food in the evening or afternoon.

The food is damn tasty! Went there with a group of six at lunchtime - we all had different stuff and everyone was "wowed" Really nice meats and cheeses too, plus an interesting and good value wine list. Friendly service. It was a bit quiet and I'd like to go back when it's a bit busier for a bit more atmosphere.
