Headed up by Alex Jackson - former Head Chef of 2 Stevie Parle restaurants - Rotorino & Dock Kitchen - Sardine brings wood-fired cooking inspired by the south of France to east London. An uber-cool, laidback venue, expect flavour-rich southern French dishes using the best quality, finest ingredients. Sardine is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner and uses a special "vertical grill" allowing for traditional cooking a la ficelle. Fresh garden peas 'a table' followed by some 'ideal-for-sharing' snacks compliment a menu of starters, mains and some generous sides with new dishes added each week. The wine list is constantly evolving with good value offerings by the glass / carafe and also on-tap. The French aperitif bar is run by Clotilde Lataille (formerly of Hawksmoor Spitalfields Bar) and impresses with Aix Dirty Martinis, Negroni Jaunes and more.

We have had a lovely evening and amazing food. The sardine and rabbit rilette were amazing and the mains (liver, sole and lamb) tasted fantastic. I would also like to recommend the desserts and the homemade liquor - orange cumin...

when full the place feels cramped . our service was initially rushed : before we finished our snacks the starters arrived . I had to tell them not to rush the main course . 2 snacks and 2 starters we tried were OK but no more . the bread content was overgrilled , the mozzerella salad was a presentation disaster with a blob of mozzarella and scattering of figs ! the cod main had too many potatos and the beans in the lamb dish were veering towards overcooked territory . both dishes were lukewarm instead of piping hot . in such a small place , with so many servers I expected everything to be spot on ; sadly it wasn't .
