Such a fantastic local gem. I was completely surprised at the standard of their set/tasting menu - every single dish was exceptional. The service was also great and such brilliant value. I’ll definitely be back!

Absolutely fantastic - last time I went I had a cold so could taste nothing but this time all the flavours were there. Great wine list, delicious autumnal menu, super service. I wish them the best of luck in these tricky times for the industry, such a gem

Very interesting and delicious food. Many distinct flavours in mostly small dishes they do leave you filling happily full at the end. Prices are a little bit high, especially as with 2 of 3 mains the price is £45p/p without drinks. The staff were very attentive and not intrusive, which is also very nice.

We had such a wonderful night at Levan. We had been looking forward to going for ages and it didn't disappoint.

The staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food is seasonal, fresh and comforting whilst also pushing boundaries.

The atmosphere created in Levan is buzzy, energetic and comfortable.

We will be back again and again

Excellent meal, we had a set menu as that was on offer the evening we attended, every course was of a high standard and a couple were exceptional.

I highly recommend and will be going again at some time in the future.

The food was amazing but the service was awful.

I am allergic to dairy and when I asked if they could do the menu dairy free (as it is a set menu) the waitress had a lot of attitude and said well it is a set menu... then she said well do you at least eat meat? No I do not... once a lot of awkward discussion around the menu happened and checks with the chef it was sorted.

Then we ordered a bottle of the Rioja and it was definitely corked, it tasted tangy and this definitely isn't how a Rioja should be. We were told that this is how it should taste... we ordered another bottle but a large glass of the Rioja was charged.

I have lived in Peckham for nearly 3 years and have always wanted to try Levan and after this experience I was super disappointed. I don't expect to come across such difficulty with dietary requirements, especially in such a foodie area.

Then at 9:40pm we were just given the bill and rushed out of the restaurant - yes we are totally respectful of the 10pm curfew but they way it was done was just very rude and unwelcoming.

Such a shame as the food was amazing but staff let it down big time.

Great food, especially the Comte Fries, Cod Crudo , pork belly and agnoletti.
Really good wines, with excellent choices by the glass/carafe so you can try interesting wines.

Another outstanding visit to Levan. We had a reservation for 8.30pm which was a bit of challenge given the 10pm curfew - but the team made it work and we felt very welcome. The food was absolutely delicious and we will rebooking again!

Usually the food at Levan is fantastic. On this occasion it was all too greasy or creamy and the salad was drowning in the dressing to the extent that I couldn’t eat it. The pork belly, however, was spot on with perfect crackling.
