Allegra is a restaurant, bar and terrace on the 7th floor Sky Garden of The Stratford, an extraordinary building from the team behind Chiltern Firehouse and St Pancras hotel. Celebrating authentic hospitality with inventive dishes using ingredients from our local, organic farm, Allegra brings an exceptional dining experience to east London.

Head Chef Patrick Powell, formerly of Chiltern Firehouse, invites guests to embrace convivial dining from long, lazy lunches through to late night dinners.

Allegra’s interiors fuse cutting-edge style with cosy, old-world opulence designed by Space Copenhagen (the team behind Noma) which flows onto the Allegra terrace where you can walk-in for drinks, sharing dishes and small plates from a more casual menu. Try our carefully selected wine offering from our sommelier or Allegra’s signature cocktails before exploring the cedar-pathed Sky Garden overlooking the London skyline.

We went on a Sunday. The live music was subtle, atmospheric and varied. A really nice touch

The food is always excellent. Wise beyond it’s years for the area that I’m sure will grow with it.

The sommelier is fantastic and showed me the wine cellar and takes through the wine with me

The staff and service are excellent. The view is amazing

What’s not to like. Visit and visit soon. You won’t regret it.

Plus if you’re on a date. The dessert menu has a cheeky “stay the night option” with a great deal for the hotel it’s situated in in case you’re in the mood 😂😂😂

Top quality stuff. Impeccable service and a wonderful tasting menu. For £100pp including wine pairing is exceptionally good value and I hope Allegra continues to offer such mid week bargains!

We have been to Allegra a few times and have really enjoyed dinning there. However two things annoyed me slightly today. The car park for the restaurant charged a hefty £18 today because of a football match nearby I guess., usually it’s only a few quid. Not the restaurant fault i guess but definitely not a welcoming start. Then they gave us a tiny table in the busiest section. I really really don’t understand why, why some restaurants like to pack everyone together when actually there are lots of empty tables around. I really wish the front of house would ask, would u like a quieter section or would u like to squeeze into a busy section to mingle? When you are paying over £100 for lunch I think it’s fair to be offered a nice table instead of being cramped with other ppl esp when we are still in a pandemic.
I booked the table for lunch today mainly because I wanted to try their new menu, and the gallet des rois, which were all absolutely delicious. Well done chef! And I also wanted to experience the live music on Sunday which was also very good. All in all a very pleasant experience besides the car park n seat arrangement at first.

Came across this restaurant by accident when looking for somewhere in Stratford City to go for diner.

All I can say is Wow! The food, drinks and service were exceptional.

Chef's selection menu is definitely the way to go.

It all started well with a nice service . starter were mixed ... the crab was very nice and interesting flavours while the scallops were forgettable with only 1 scallop per person. mains were ok ..the cod was good , the venison was nice but not mind blowing . the sirloin for 2 was ok but again not a memorable meat for the price .
then the poor waiter was left alone to deal with the all restaurant .. we add to wait 30min between him giving us the dessert menu and him coming back for order ...

so all in all , very mixed feeling ... If you're after a night out with friends it 's ok . if you're a foodie looking for good / new food .. maybe not .
also , the little burger with black pudding is fun and a nice idea , but a shame not to go all the way with a nice layer of cheese instead of processed one , nice buns instead of pita style ones .

Had a lovely meal at Allegra tonight. It was our 33rd Wedding Anniversary and as we are huge foodies we are always looking for new places to go. After reading the reviews we decided to try it and was not disappointed. Highlight for me was the venison with a small venison cottage pie where the potato purée would give Joel Robuchon’s a run for its money. Rice pudding which I would not normally order was also delicious. Staff were really friendly and it had a nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and in my mind it was great value for money!
