Cooking southern French dishes over a wood fire, Sardine in Islington is led by head chef Alex Jackson, and Stevie Parle, the man behind a host of top London restaurants. An uber-cool, laidback venue, expect flavour-rich dishes using the best quality, finest ingredients.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, begin the day with the likes of ham with fried egg and lovage, or pain d’épice with salted butter. At lunch and dinner, the Sardine restaurant menu begins with sharing snacks and rich starters like black cabbage and chorizo soup or veal and pork stuffed onion. Enticing main dishes include rabbit with sausage, chicory and white beans, and grilled pork chop with salsify gratin.

Amongst the classic desserts at Sardine in London, savour the likes of apple and almond galette, and pannetone bread and butter pudding. Focussing on regional French bottles, an impressive wine list is also on hand to compliment your meal.

Tucked away by the canal in a quiet corner of east London, Sardine on Micawber Street is a 9-minute walk from Old Street Station.

    Great cassoulet, good atmosphere. We were disappointed that the £15 deal to add coffees and toast needs to be booked in advance. We think this should be made clearer on your website/mailing list!

    delicious ! earthy , conforting yet surprising, we loved it all
    the cabbage and chedstnut soup, the cod with anchovies sauce and the fennels cooked at perfection, and finally, the rhubarb tart (surprising despite a boring look) and the amazing orange sponge cake !
    thank you so much for a delicious lunch

    Very nice place. Simple. Delicious. Relaxed. The slow cooked lamb was incredible, like the best possible home cooking.

    The food was excellent. Cooked so that the flavours were to the fore, with no unnecessary additions to detract. The service was efficient and friendly, and the three of us had a wonderful time. G&T was also gorgeous!

    Informal, atmospheric, attentive and very friendly service. The food was light and delicious.

    My friend had got the wrong night and so was unable to attend at the last minute. I decided to stay anyway. The waiting staff were very thoughtful and kind. Main my main course and side dish of greens were absolutely delicious, inventive but also substantial. The pudding of galette a little less successful, perhaps slightly over done. I had a very good meal and enjoyed being there. My only gripe really was the volume of the music. I think good food should be enjoyed without shouting!
