Thank you, thank you, thank you 💫
We we’re running late but phoned and confirmed we would be there and arrived within 15 minutes of the booking time. We were taken to the worst table round the back next to the service station looking over the playing field. I was looking forward to watching the world go by on Kings Road but sadly wasn’t to be.
The problem was when it started to rain the two other tables, one of six and one of five, moved their tables under the umbrella and then the waitress moved the service station round 90 degrees so we were both literally hemmed in on three sides and couldn’t move in any direction. I was ducking under the serving trays when they came round.
We placed our food order which were 2 dishes with slight alterations. Mine arrived which was fine but the other order for a Veggie breakfast with fried egg came as a different dish and obviously wrong. They went to replace it but meant I was the only one eating and having to listen to the conversation of the other groups right next to us. When the right order arrived they said they’d take half off the bill which sounded fair recompence.
Also I was very surprised to see a number of groups of people sat inside Vardo eating. Even with the windows down this didn’t look like the definition of ‘outdoors’.
Food was cold, and we were asked if we wanted our pancakes to come out at the same time which we thought was a very odd question as we were only two people and hadn't ordered any other food.
Coffee never arrived, asked for it 3 times. Eventually cancelled it and asked for the bill.
Very cool set up and really vibey. Food was really good although service a little slow.
My partner and I came for our anniversary just for a chill evening it was great the wine was fab he really enjoyed his food I do wish I got a different dish but the blankets given were a lovely touch and the atmosphere was lovely
Hi Sara, thanks for taking the time to review us. Glad to hear you enjoyed your evening - we'd love to welcome you back again soon. Next time if your dish isn't to your liking we would be happy to swap it to something else for you, just ask your waiter and we'll be happy to find something more up your street!
What a lovely place - can’t fault it on anything
Really lovely service, great food and drink. Was great having the sheepskin rugs and blankets as we weren't under a heater so was quite cold. Loved the music playing too
great place. a lovevly open air place to visit in London
Hi Fernandaz - great to hear you enjoyed our terrace! See you again soon!
All rather chaotic and lack of communication but grateful for “on the house”.
Food was lovely, great service and good vibes. Would definitely recommend!
Not the warmest day but great food and Sebastien our server was fantastic! But needs thermals !!
Hi - thanks for the lovely review! Great to hear you were well looked after by the fabulous Seb. We are definitely looking forward to some upcoming hot summer days on the terrace so we can ditch those thermals soon!
Very bad service and food. Duck confit was super dry, my friends had one of the sharing dish which was rib eye steak, first they didn’t bring any sharing plate for them and after 15 min they brought iced cold small plate for them which was so disappointing. Food cold and plates also cold 🤦🏽♀️
One of the waiter gave a complementary glass of processo as it was my bday but at then I saw they charged me for that which is not nice.
It wasn’t his fault probebly it was more lack of communication between staff.
It’s very nice spot but it needs a lot of improvement on its service and food.
Lovely setting and menu choice. The asparagus starter was especially delicious. It was very busy so understandably it took a little while to place our order. The chairs with the rugs was a lovely idea. Thank you.
No seating on the top terrace yet unlike the online pictures. Also very close to busy road. Sadly despite asking for a table in the sun we got a very shaded table. Blankets helped. Food was tasty but small portions and slow with serving drinks. Overall it was okay but prefer other caravan sites. It might be wonderful if you got a rooftop terrace table in the sun..
It was so nice to be back at Vardo. Just went for a breakfast coffee and green juice but great service as always and fantastic outside seating. I will be back very soon!
Hi KEC5055, Thanks for the lovely review! We look forward to your next visit on our lovely terrace!
Amazing experience as always
Vardo never disappoints. It’s a fantastic place in beautiful area!
Cool place, excellent service
We will come back.
Delicious food - service was patchy at times, with so many people running around it was never clear who was responsible for what. Our server disappeared before we could get a drinks order in (he never asked). We took to flagging down whoever was passing and that worked quite well thanks to very quick turnaround - my side dish was initially forgotten but after flagging appeared within 5 minutes. Food was absolutely delicious, every order from the Sunday brunch menu was spot-on and good value. We were close to the speaker where music was a bit too loud but otherwise good atmosphere outside, blankets and heaters provided. We will return - hopefully the service routine will settle in!
Late night Outdoor seating without heaters, although blankets were provided. Service was really slow with some items unavailable from menu provided. Food was lukewarm and would get cold really quickly outside.

At your earliest convenience, can you please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I hope to hear from you soon and restore your faith in Vardo restaurant Your sincerely, Chris Hatton General manager
I made a reservation hoping their rooftop being opened but it's currently not open. however, it was overall decent experience, recommend to people :)
Food, cocktails and the service were really good. Nice location as well.
Amazing service! All the staff were so friendly and attentive. Perfect atmosphere. Good value for the quality of food you get. Ideal location.
Amazing place - would highly recommend! Really tasty food with lovely outdoor seating. The staff were extremely welcoming and very polite, would have been a bit more efficient if there were two queues one for bookings and one for walk ins as the queue was fairly long.
Lovely atmosphere and great prices for hot drinks and non alcoholic options.
The ambience is great, you can have some drinks in Duke of York square whilst waiting. When outside, you are given blankets if it’s very cold. The food is good and arrives on time. Waiters are very kind as well. It’s the place you want to go on a friday night with friends.
The staff ask us to leave the table while we were still waiting for our food, when there was other tables that arrived before us but they weren’t asked to leave. Very disappointing, I understand you are busy but you should check your order status before asking someone to leave. Won’t be coming back. Food is not that special and overpriced.

Great food, setting and service at Vardo's in the outdoor area
Wonderful setting, stylish and comfortable, great vibe, food and service. Intrusive music mix which suits younger diners.
Booked a table for two for lunch on a Thursday. We had a table out in the sun, by the lawn. It was lovely. The food took a while to arrive but was delicious. Will be back!
Really lovely atmosphere, great food which came quickly and reasonably priced. Great outside seating area, would be nice to sit upstairs soon too
Bit of a shame that after months of time off the staff were inappropriately rude and disinterested in serving tables.
There weren’t enough heaters outside and the one nearest us was turned off? - my friend and I were very cold. Although very grateful for the blankets !!
As ever great food from inspired menu, could have chosen multiple dishes. Good service and excellent job making restaurant suitable for outside dining. Warm with lots of rugs
Our waiter Sebastian was extremely attentive, food came quite speedily, and was very good.
However, for a girls lunch, unusually we had a glass of wine each, and thought it was far more expensive £13 plus per glass than it should have been.
This tends to put my husband off dining with you for dinner!
Food delicious, nice service, price ...‘London price ‘ .
It was my second time there and I will definitely go there again .
Beautiful restaurant in amazing seating. Delicious food & great service. What more could you ask for!?
Great food and service
