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.

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 .

Very slow service, food not as expected certainly not good value for money. Not worth £200 paid including drinks.

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!

Such a disappointment, lovely decor, great outside space, food was atrocious. Truffle that didn’t taste of anything, potatoes which were annihilated by shallot and mustard, so underwhelming and due to that extremely overpriced

The snacks and starters were excellent. The Galician beef was rather tough exceedingly gristly and underwhelming. The accompanying leaves and tomato tartlet were delicious and made the beef all the more disappointing.
The desert choice was quite limited and not very appealing. The caramel tart was quite good with excellent ice cream but needed an extra texture.

I went with my parents for a delicious lunch. The three of us are lucky to eat in some fabulous restaurants (and can be critical) and were really impressed with everything. Lovely friendly and professional service, delicious and beautifully presented food and a wonderful ambience. Don't hesitate, just book!

Food was delicious and great value for £35 with the early bird set menu. Service was friendly, polite and informative. However, I really don’t understand the extortionate mark up on drinks. In particular, spending over £30 on a bottle of wine, I know it might be”cheap” compared to the rest of the bottles, but would at least expect to have a cork and not a screw top.

tasting menu is always a really good options for foodies, I felt like some ingrediants were repeated a lil too much but it was a nice variation. The bakery breads were out standing but the desserts were sickly. I dislike artichoke but the crab dish was such a perfect array of flavours balanced.
wines list felt overall expensive but the building, the ambiance and décor felt like a very high standard

A lovely evening. The food and wine were great. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and not too intrusive. They wore masks throughout and were respectful of social distancing.

There was a nice buzzy atmosphere and, on the whole, good spacing.

We travelled from the Barbican and it was quick and easy to get to.

Worth a visit. We will go back.

Visited on our 48th Anniversary, we had a nice greeting at were shown to a lovely table. The food came promptly and we were pleased that when we ordered two bread platters the waiter told us we would only need one, he was correct and it was appreciated. The first course was amazing fresh crab and melon, our main was also a delicious beef sharing dish. We didn't much like the sweet which didn't have the caramel taste as advertised and the licorice ice cream just wasn't nice ( personal view ). Thought the wine was a bit pricey but overall a good experience.
