Inventive contemporary European bistro-style cuisine has earned Soho’s Arbutus bistro deluxe restaurant a much deserved Michelin star. The multi award-winning restaurant serves charming and flavourful French and European dishes in a smart and sophisticated setting.

With imagination and creative flair, Arbutus restaurant London serves staunchly seasonal dishes alongside plats du jour. Whilst ever-changing, the Arbutus menu often features favourites such as the Cornish mullet with soft herb risotto, saddle of rabbit with caramelised endive and the slow cooked Scottish beef with roast salsify. Desserts include cold chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream and appealing morbier cheese. Arbutus restaurant Soho also boasts an selective, cosmopolitan wine list of around 50 labels, with all bins available in 250ml carafes.

In relaxed and intimate surroundings, Arbutus restaurant London is a sleek and seductively-lit restaurant, with plush leather seating in its long, spacious dining room. Arbutus London is just a 5-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road Tube Station.

    Food was great quality and tasty, but portion size a little small on main - some more vegetables and potatoes would have helped or have been offered them as an extra option

    Excellent value deal - the food was really good. The game pappardelle starter was gorgeous, the star of the show, but all the dishes were excellent. Nice ambience and very friendly service. The wine is expensive as you expect, but the cheapest Rioja was actually very pleasant. Highly recommended.

    Food was good considering I'm a vegetarian! Unusual combinations and with taste! Portion sizes smaller than most Michelin restaurants and overall the food was underwhelming.
    Waiting staff were inattentive and far too laid back with nothing else to back this attitude.
    Almost overcharged (check the bill carefully!).
    Nice ambience however.
    Nice place to dine on an offer and not sure I would otherwise.

    I've been meaning to visit Arbutus for a couple of years now and finally got around to it this week, it certainly won't be the last time. We eat in a lot of "fancy" restaurants and have always enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere rather than the more stuffy places, Arbutus hits the nail on the head. We were made to feel welcome and comfortable, the service was professional yet unobtrusive and the meal was fantastic. We went for the prix fixe menu, as we had a show to get to, which was very reasonably priced, might have a look at the a la carte next visit and take a bit more time over the meal.
