Close to vibrant Carnaby Street, Antidote is a stunning wine bar & restaurant split over 2 levels. As well as sumptuous charcuterie offerings, French cuisine is prepared with the finest fresh and seasonal ingredients, and al fresco dining is available on the picturesque terrace.

Focusing on simplicity and quality, head chef Michael Hazelwood compiles the Antidote menu, under the guidance of Mikael Jonsson, chef patron of Michelin-starred Hedone. Light snacks from the larder include a selection of cheeses, chutney and foie gras, and bar snacks offer tapas-style bites like mussels with chilli. Larger dishes include hearty mains like beef a la Provencal, and a selection of aged steaks. Vegetarian options are also served.

    The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The flavours in each dish were subtle and wonderful, and the selection is especially good for a vegetarian (as one of us was). I didn't think I would like sitting on a high stool - a change from the restaurant's previous incarnation - but it was surprisingly comfortable. And, of course, the location is great, with those large picture windows looking out on to the buzzing backstreets of Mayfair. My only comment, expensive, but, c'est la vie!

    We were meeting for a long but not heavy lunch. The food was good and carefully prepared. And , I know it was a quiet day, but the service was very attentive without being intrusive.. JA

    Very good food, delicious wine and pleasant helpful service. Bit low on atmosphere but so is everywhere on an early January Monday lunchtime. Food is lovely - but small portions so not somewhere to go when starving - but very high quality.

    however, it comes in such a small portion we ended up going to another restaurant to eat. only recommed for ladies on a diet.

    My guest from yesterday and I are both dedicated food-lovers, and we frequently visit quite a few first-class restaurants in London and abroad. The food, wine and service we received at Antidote was brilliant and most enjoyable. We both agreed that it was one of the best meals we'd ever had, and will most definitely come back again in the near future.

    Very good food, but portions are just a little bit too small

    The food arrived quickly and was excellent. Not a massive selection and with only one veggie dish it might be worth checking any and all veggies want it before you go!

    My wife, daughter & I dined yesterday (Sat.) early evening. The web site indicated the availability of the set price Christmas menu. However on arrival we were informed that only the a la carte was available!! We chose from this, & tho the quality of the food was good, the value for money was much less so. In addition, my daughter chose a moderately pricey bottle of wine only to discover that it was undrinkable. The maitre'd was less than amenable to this observation, but did allow us to choose an alternative. The service was pleasant & friendly but not very attentive & we were sat in a dimly lit corner of the small restaurant/bar area. We did dine early, but were struck by the lack of diners, we were alone in this section. All in all a disappointing experience & one that we won't repeat!
