Guess I expected more from a resto with a head chef who has such acclaim and ratings. Nothing was off but none of the dishes (including the 36 quid 4 scallops) was amazing. Much of the flavors were a bit flat/bland, not sure if it's made for the median palate but def thought we'd get a much more flavor and taste experience.

Excellent service and food. Only slight problem was that it was a little too much background noise/ music which made conversation a struggle at points. But everything else was truly wonderful. Thank you

Really nice ambience and stylish room (downstairs so not naturally lit, maybe best for evenings), a good place to meet as there is a bar upstairs and not too crowded. Really interesting and tasty food, but quite steep pricing if you were to do a full 3 courses

Very nice venue, service and food. Go for the Joselito cured ham as starter, it’s worth every piece. They have a good offer of wines as well as Spanish beers to accompany the food. Scallops are amazing as well as the Chuleta cooked medium rare. The lamb is very nice too, quite smooth and tender.

Great creative Basque food with emphasis on creative.
I would call dinner excellent scallops outrageously good as well as polpo.
Pepper juice reduction with soy sauce has incredible umami like a rich veal stock.
Every bite layers of flavor and worth the £’s.
Great value.

Loved the restaurant and the food a bit pricey but food was delicious. I liked the way the restaurant had lovely warm low lights and the music was not loud. The restaurant was cosy and warm and the staff were brilliant

Excellent venue with oval tables that seat 8 meaning that nobody is at the end & everyone can converse with each other.
Food presented imaginatively & often exceeds the description on the menu.

We loved the feel and ambiance of Eneko. We were in rather a rush to get to the theatre so did not really get the opportunity to fully appreciate the experience of this restaurant but the staff were very attentive knowing our time restraints and the two courses we had were amazing. We intend to return to have the tasting menu at a more leisurely pace.

The food is amazing - however it’s really expensive for what you get. The server suggested 8 starters between 4 people - there’s £200 right there! The sharing platters are upwards of £50 each which it suggest are for 2-3 people, in reality it’s not really enough for 3 people. Fantastic meat but really pricey. With wine we paid £300+ And came out hungry!

This is an unusual but cleverly designed space and nicely low lit. My scallops starter was served with a bit of dry ice Theatre and were delicious. My octopus was also very good. Not cheap, but the warmth of the service was very much appreciated.

As a setting for a special birthday supper with friends who always have much to talk about, this was perfect.
Wine list included lots of new gems.
Hake tempura and lamb were highlights.
Service was lovely, caring and discreet.
And although the restaurant was busy, we could hear each other.
Thank you, looking forward to our return visit.

Five star service, but food let the restaurant down; the rice and clam starter was good, the vanilla sponge pud very good, but the pork rib main lacked meat and wasn’t tasty

The food was delicious and great value for money. Even though it was busy the tables are configured in a way that you have plenty of privacy. The decor is great too. Friendly, informative service. It is my second visit and I would definitely return.
