    Pretty good value, food was very nice if not quite as good as it used to be in the old days pre-Covid. Doesn’t feel quite the same under new owners but generally good friendly service and still a special venue.

    Really very good food, wonderful ambience and extremely attentive staff. Air conditioning a bit cold if you sit by the window but staff did correct that too

    There is always a warm welcome at Kettner’s and having dined here since the early 1990s the familiarity and history of the restaurant and building guarantee a cosy and relaxing dining experience.

    this was an early dinner pre Ronnie Scotts. Being 6pm we had the dining room to ourselves. The food was excellent and the service too. The waiter extremely helpful - he doubled as sommelier and made a very good recommendation.
