A hotly-anticipated arrival in Soho, Belgo is part of the Belgian restaurant group established way back in in the 1990s. Choose your favourite brew from the Belgo bar, which showcases over 50 different beers.

Favourites on the Belgo menu include shredded duck croquettes and Mussels traditionelle. For something a little bit different, swap the classic mussel sauce for kimchi or smoked chorizo. To finish, guests can build their own indulgent pudding, with a squishy Belgian waffle as the base. Belgo also offers a dedicated children's menu, as well as pre-theatre and express menus.

Sprawled over 2 floors with huge windows, an open kitchen and walls decked with colourful pictures and photographs, Belgo has a laidback but vibrant atmosphere. Belgo Soho is equipped with 4 individually themed caves, seating up to 14 people, offering the ultimate private dining experience.

In one of central London’s buzziest areas, Belgo is a 5-minute walk from Leicester Square Tube Station.

    We go to Belogo Central regularly and Chalk Farm occasionally but this was our first time at Belgo Soho. It's one of our favourite chains, hence the choice.

    I was delayed so my partner ordered wine and a starter. On my arrival I asked about the pre Theatre 2 or 3 course deal as booked through Bookatable. A separate menu appeared but we decided to go for items on the regular menu. We placed the menus on the table next to us and waited for our order to be taken.

    It was fairly busy but they had 4 or 5 staff covering our room. No one came to assist despite our looking. Eventually an apparently more senior member of staff came and removed the menus without talking to us. He immediately went to the waitress who had delivered our menus and clearly admonished her for giving us the 'deal' menus (this was confirmed later). A further considerable period of being ignored by these two led me to find someone else to take our order. We believe our original waitress was discouraged from seeing us and do not hold her responsible, her service had been fine.

    It felt odd and uncomfortable and not at all like the friendly Belgo way.

    We mentioned the situation to the manager who thanked us for flagging it and said she'd address it.

    Food was very good although the milk chocolate sauce (no dark chocolate available) on the crepe was rather limited. The ice bucket for our wine had no ice, just an inch of water - addressed on request.

    An experience that has driven me to write, most unusually, and one that concerns a Bookatable offer.

    Good atmosphere,even though we were there early. Service quick & largely efficient. Food was good and reasonably priced.

    The steaks were too dry; the sirloin more like a rump cut. The mussels and the starters that were available were very well presented. However it did take approximately an hour for the starters to be brought out..

    Food was nice but we were very rushed, the waitress came to take our dessert order whilst we were eating our mains.

  • ((*** 2 November 2016 by Yasmina Ruano from London

    We ordered the mussels because we love them but in this case they were small and expensive. We expected more that it was. We booked for a taste menu but when we arrived the waitress said that in Sunday they don't have the taste menu then how the booking page allowed to book it?
