As a group of 5, all of our food was excellent and arrived together. Portions were adequate and overall would highly recommend. I had the Duck Tikka starter which was very tender.

About the restaurant
Utter Waffle is an award-winning Brunch & Street Food restaurant, as seen on ITV News & Sunday Brunch!
Found opposite Brockwell Pk in Herne Hill, here at Utter Waffle we specialise in…you guessed it - waffles! But here’s the thing, try to forget everything you think you knew about the humble waffle, these are life-changing, and just as good eaten at breakfast, brunch or alongside a craft beer or wine for dinner! Think award-winning breakfast waffles, waffles stuffed with chorizo & mozzarella, or even a club waffle, stacked with fried chicken, bacon & bloody Mary relish...yeah baby! For those with a sweet tooth - fret not, we’re also the proud winners of The Best Dessert in the UK (British Street Food Awards).

We pride ourselves on a super-inclusive menu. Co-owned by a coeliac, we are allergy specialists with 99% of our menu being suitable for coeliacs; plus we boast loads of vegetarian and vegan options too…really something for everybody!

Indigo is both our signature restaurant and a neighbourhood jewel famed for flavour open for a hearty breakfast, long weekend lunches or a delectable dinner date. We’re always delighted to see old and new friends in Indigo’s calm and elegant space overlooking the vibrant Lobby Bar – a prime position from which to keep an eye on the hotel’s comings and goings…

About the restaurant
Since the Romans left, the Italians have been operating a policy of conquering the world's palate, plate by plate, and traditionally-run family restaurants like Cotto are their failsafe. The welcome is unfailingly warm here, the decor is authentic in feel, with murals on the walls, and the pleasures of the table are taken seriously indeed. Cotto is a 5-minute walk from the London Eye and the Aquarium, perfect for before or after family outings and it's also very popular with business customers during the week. There's live music on offer, too. As for the menu, try classic Tricolor salad to start, one of more than a dozen pastas, like Spaghetti carbonara, and a main course of simply and beautifully grilled Sirloin steak. Or just opt for a pizza and be happy!

About the restaurant
We also make gluten-free pasta every day with a rolling pin and are certified with coeliac uk. In the heart of London, the City, Mattarello Bolognese will bring you the ultimate Italian cuisine experience.

We brought the Bologna's traditional cusine to Aldgate, with our signature fresh hand-made pasta.

We have installed a gluten-free kitchen to offer you the safety and taste you need, and import certified quality gluten free products as flours, pasta and hams directly from Italy.

Every day you can watch our "Sfoglino" making fresh pasta in front of you at our premises and soon you will have also the chance to learn all the secrets of fresh-pasta production from him with our exclusive courses that will start this year.
