The food was truly magnificent and the service excellent.
The restaurant have done well with the design of the space available, however the narrowness of each area does result in a slight lack of ambience.

The staff is always warm friendly and professional and the food and wine are very good! We were seated downstairs in the basement this time though and it felt a little like a cave which wasn’t that pleasant. Last time we were seated upstairs outside which was fabulous!!! Overall a very nice dining experience.

We decided to celebrate our wedding ceremony with a small group of family and friends there. Firstly because of the fine food, presentation, elegance and flavour. Secondly for the great atmosphere of the place, and it didn’t disappoint us. They gave us privacy, and the staff was amazing, as you expect it from a place like this, however you don’t always get it in some places!
Really outstanding, thank you so much for helping us to have a great time and enjoy company and food.

I went to Micheal Nardra for a romantic date. After the waiter seated us we received warm bread and butter. I shared a scallop starter with my partner. The dish was quite small but excellent. I had the asian-inspired sea bass and my guest the lamb with stuffed aubergines. It the starter seemed a bit small the mains portions were quite generous. The bass was cooked perfectly, the asian herbs complementing the fish well without overpowering it. The lamb was also coked perfectly, all the sides and sauces creating a harmonious earthy main.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch on the outside terrace of Michael Nadra. Although we only ordered starters, we enjoyed our light lunch and will come again soon.

Lovely food, really friendly and relaxed service. Multiple dining areas from Al fresco dinning to intimate former tunnel. Great wines and cocktails too. Added bonus, awesome background music from our former DJ host.

It was our first visit to this restaurant and we were surprisingly pleased with the location, food and service. We tried the two tasting menus and they were all beautifully presented with a lovely taste. We will go back there again.

Our recent visit was very disappointing. We were kept waiting for at least 10 minutes as there was no one at the entrance desk. The service was very slow and unenthusiastic. We were given the drinks menu and then had to wait at least half an hour for someone to come and take our drinks order. The waiter asked if we would like more bread, we said we would but then never received any! Every request seemed like too much bother for the staff. The restaurant was not even busy!
We had relatives visiting from USA and quite frankly we were very disappointed and embarrassed.

We have been a couple times over the last 6 months and repeatedly we have had a lovely experience. The food is delicious and innovative without being radical for the sake of being radical. The chef discovers what makes sense beyond what is simply obvious. The service also really stands out. Friendly without being too familiar and incredibly gracious. Genuine service with a smile and a touch of sense of humour which makes it a joy to interact with the team. Since the location is not on a beaten path (unless a stroll along the canal between Primrose Hill and Camden is your norm)...it does need to be well known to succeed in the long term and I would gladly share my recommendation to anyone as I would like it to stay. Thank you for a wonderful evening out once again.

Great food. Great service which is rare in London and will continue to go back. When the server hand stuffs Olives with blue cheese for your martini you’ve found a great spot!

We had the tasting menu for my daughter’s birthday celebration. The menu was amazing, the food was beautifully prepared and presented and the staff and service were amazing. We even got to meet Michael at the end of the meal! We will definitely be returning - as my daughter said if this is what birthdays are like she would like one every day!

The service was average, the food was OK

The manager was appallingly rude; one of the worst I’ve experienced. Absolutely shocking for any restaurant, never mind one priced toward the upper end at of the market.

I can see why the restaurant was barely half full. Avoid.

Went for a dinner (around 2000) on a Thursday night (June 27th) with my girlfriend. Only had starters and mains but the whole ordeal took us more than 2 hours. We had to wait very very long for everything (getting menus, someone to take our orders, for wine & food to arrive etc.). Even when we were paying (the restaurant was more or less empty by then) it took staff solid 10-15 minutes to show up with a card terminal. To me it's an indication of either gross incompetence or structural under-staffing (kitchen, waiters, bar etc.)

On a positive note, the food was really good but I cannot rate a place any more highly if it doesn't get simple service tablestakes right. A number of tables around us had the same issues (e.g. wine only arriving when people were already done w. their mains!). Not sure I'm coming back anytime soon

P.s. what also strikes me as surprising is the amount of effort the place puts into one-day-only menus (e.g. Cinco de Mayo, July 4th etc.). They always seems to be working on something special. However, I wonder if a higher priority should be getting the basics right first...

In a party of four eating three courses every dish was a success. Exemplary service. Pricey but not inappropriate for the performance delivered. Ordinary location but not claustrophobic.

Ordered tasting menu with wines, first time we got warm food and had to wait 5 minutes for wines. With deserts, wines were forgotten completely. One wrong dish also served. Food was ok, but as a tasting menu not really worth it - you are better off buying just one main course but 580 euro 6 course tasting dinner with matching wines for four persons, neither the service, nor the quality of the food lives at least up to our expectations.
