On the menu: a unique blend of Anglo-Saint-Lucian cuisine; contemporary dishes influenced by the West Indies and Britain, with roasted cacao beans used as a subtle savoury spice and garnish – just as they had been in the centuries before chocolate was invented – as well as the rich, deep heart of desserts.

White Chocolate Mash
Hereford Beef Yorkshire Pudding
A starter that boasts a roast. Yorkshire pudding on a velvety cacao-red wine reduction, filled with white chocolate mash. 24-hour cacao nib-marinated, grass-fed Hereford flank beef seared rare for exceptional flavour
Actually very good. Not cheap but worth it. Good service. Brunch is excellent.
Seated at table promptly. Waitress a little abrupt but polite. Starter was good. Waited 20 minutes for main course which arrives luke warm. sauce had skin on, no vegetables on plate as advertised on menu. Table next to us received their fodd well before ours. Due to high price and renowed name it was a very expensive and disappointing meal.
Couldn't have asked for more, attentive staff, delicious food and comfortable atmosphere!!
Fabulous - again!
We were sat outside for Sunday lunch and the noise of a cleaning of Borough Market made its very difficult to hear
Great food at a reasonable price, as a treat for the family. When booked, we had to go for the outside area, but the place was only 1/3 full when we went.
Our water upstairs on the outside balcony was excellent
Service was great from Olivia and food had slight chocolate or cocoa taste nothing too powerful.
We ordered the beef and the burger - both were overcooked and dry. One of our servers was abrupt and unfriendly. The atmosphere was lovely however, and the décor is fabulous. We did have an extremely wobbly table, which was a surprise considering the price of the menu. We had a fairly enjoyable experience, but the food was a let down.
The food and cocktails are wonderful. Prices about what you'd expect for the centre of London. Quiet and uncrowded.

Was looking forward to this for my bday as I do love chocolate and I guess I was expecting something totally different. It started with a dirty wobbly table. Ended up only ordering only a starter because the food really didn't look too appetising and the desserts sounded like not much special / more interesting - which you would have expected, in a cocoa focused place. Tried the scallops which came with a weird pink looking sauce (not sure if natural or not.. even if it was natural, it just made the plate look like everything was plastic). Not sure how fresh the scallops were as they had a but of a fishy smell and although the dish said seared scallops, they had no sear, were a bit chewy, so ended up eating one of the 3 scallops in the plate. Overpriced, overhyped, disappointing.

We has a lovely calm experience. The women working there was very friendly. Our food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Particularly enjoyed the espresso martini after walking around the market with a grumpy teenager.
Hello NBoo Thank you for your lovely review. We’re very happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit at Rabot 1745 especially our expresso martini . We hope to see you again soon !
Not a chocolate lover, but the use of cacao was subtle and well done across all of the dishes.
Food was excellent, service was poor, restaurant was incredibly quiet for this time of year and staff still couldn’t be bothered to make any effort, made to feel unwelcome, luckily the food made up for it

Food and drink was lovely with great service. Restraint had quite relaxed atmosphere which we liked.
One improvement would be the quality of the venue itself.
I had booked an afternoon tea for my sisters birthday (mentioned it was a special occasion). I was told over the phone it was booked for 1pm so we planned our day around that. I received an email the day before advising it was booked for 12.30. Fine. Change plans. When we got there, we were seated in an empty restaurant in a dusty dirty corner and were served our prosecco. 10 minutes later we were told afternoon tea wasn’t served until 1 so we’d have to wait but they’d told the chef we were there so he might be able to do it earlier. Why move my booking? The waitress brought out our tea, put it on the table and left. No explanation of what was what, just couldn’t care less. Zero mention of the special occasion I’d booked for. We didn’t finish our tea because it wasn’t that appealing, the melted chocolate for the scones was split and half butter and the clotted cream was over churned to the point it was butter. I was really let down by it and we weren’t checked back on when we had our food. The staff were all too interested in having a chat with each other and when I wanted the waitresses attention, she was playing with her nails. The cocktail I ordered was severely lacking in chocolate. All in all a very disappointing and lack lustre experience. Sad to think that this is what Hotel Chocolat has to showcase

As usual we had a lovely lunch,the food was excellent and the service was friendly but not overbearing. We chose from the Christmas menu which included a glass of Prosecco.
Great restaurant, beautiful food, lovely attentive service - all and all one of the best hidden gems of borough market.
The food is delicious, Christmas Menu is definitely something to look at during the visit at this time. Friendly staffs and great ambiance. They even have miniature Christmas tree on the table as well as other Christmas decorations that is perfect for the season.

Really Great meal and fab staff. Nice Sunday lunch.
Not the place for Sunday lunch have had a lot better food on other days.
The food was exceptional, unlike anything I've ever had before. I will definitely be visiting again in the future.
Absolutely wonderful. Staff were lovely & food was amazing.
Both my daughter and I had the Mac and Cheese…….quite bland and needs to be more cheesy. Over priced for what it is. Ambience - I was searching for it all night. Deserts where very good but again slightly overpriced

The Christmas Menu was excellent and very good value.
Wonderful food and serving staff were attentive plus smartly dressed
Everything about the visit was fantastic. We started by chosing to sit outside, and after getting cold they happily moved us inside. The cocktails were excellently made, the wine (Hotel Chocolat red of course!) was fantastic, all the food was very well cooked and the waiting staff were second to none - polite, attentive and knowledgable.

Excellent - cannot fault food and service. Look forward to next visit.
First time back at Rabot 1745 in two years and it did not disappoint. Excellent service and great quality food.
Nice setting, warm and lovely views, friendly staff although a bit too pestering. Ordered the aubergine curry which I dislike, however excellent burger and chips
While I love the food and drinks here, as they have a very varied menu, I do wish they had been more forthcoming with the Christmas menu. I would have loved to try it, and didn't realize it existed until I had already placed my order.
Loved the menu, who'd have thought chocolate would work in so many dishes. I'd recommend the hake. As for the puddings....... the sticky toffee was amazing!
Me and my friend are massive chocoholics and love hotel chocolat fans so naturally when we heard about the restaurant we had try it and we were definitely not disappointed the food was exquisite and we can’t wait to go back
Just beautiful food with such flavour combinations. We’ve never had anything so tasty. Lovely and quiet even on a Saturday. Very quick delivery of meals to the table.
This is a great restaurant with a great menu and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed it.
