One of the most unusual restaurants in London, Archipelago is a colourful den of exotic and adventurous flavours. Sample everything from crocodile and kangaroo meat, all in a seductive setting of tribal masks, fertility statues and peacock feathers.
The Archipelago menu is a true taste of the exotic and experimental. Hot and spicy jerked alpaca is served with candy beetroot, while sweet chilli smoked python carpaccio comes with green tea and wasabi crackers for that Asian-influenced crunch. There are aromatic curries, creamy blue cheese parfaits, and more recognisable options like the honey-glazed Mexican pork belly.
Side dishes at Archipelago in Fitzrovia are just as exotic, with Colombian queen leaf eater ants available to much on. To drink, there is a diverse wine list of international vintages, and some signature cocktails with eclectic infusions.
A truly unique restaurant in London that is perfect for the adventurous diner, Archipelago is a 5-minute walk from Goodge Street Tube Station.

The restaurant is a total one off, from the menu to the decor. We tried four of the starters and two mains, and really enjoyed most of it. The things we were not so keen on was completely down to personal preference and not to do with the cooking. The waiter couldn’t have been more friendly or more helpful with answering questions on the menu, and realised it was my partner’s birthday without me saying anything - he brought out a small dessert with a candle to make it special. Really great service and fun to try something completely different!

The food was amazing, the service was fantastic and was one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. The decor really is interesting and matches the time and attention given to the food. I will be back :)

So quirky inside, very good service, the host explained every dish to perfection. We started with Python and crispy zebra. Both were very tasty. Mains we had the crocodile curry and Ostrich steak, the Ostrich steak being the highlight of the meal personally. We also had mealworm, silkworm and locust salad as a side dish which was surprisingly tasty even if a little crunchy. Price was around £130 for myself and my wife which was expensive but after reading the reviews beforehand, expected. We were on a break for our wedding anniversary so didn’t mind paying the price for a special occasion. In summary, amazing food, great service and fab decor. Ok you will pay a bit more here than a usual run of the mill restaurant but this is definitely not a normal restaurant, if you like something totally different but a totally enjoyable experience, I recommend Archipelago.
