I loved the entire experience. Only minor quibble - when I visited the restaurant 10 years ago the ‘LoveBug Salad’ was presented with complete bugs in one bowl with the salad. This time the ‘bug parts’ were incomplete and served in a side bowl. I’d like the option of the original serving style!

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.

    We had the most amazing evening, the food and experience was out of this world with zero faults!

    We love going to new restaurants and trying new foods and I have to say this is the best restaurant I have been too because food, experience and atmosphere were perfect and you don’t find that in many places.

    The staff were also amazing and talked through the dishes to give you some background. They came over to ask how you were finding it but it wasn’t overwhelming.

    I have recommended to all my friends and family and we will definitely be making another visit!!

    Excellent service and exquisite dishes and atmosphere. Great personalised birthday treat.

    We eat in a lot of different restaurants and are always looking to try something different or unusual.
    The problem is that sometimes it's more about the experience then the quality of the food which is not the case at Archipelago.
    What an amazing menu, so unusual but also really good, tasty food.
    The restaurant itself is very quirky and the staff were good fun.
    I really would recommend giving this place a try.

    Food was phenomenal and Father and Son served my wife and I for the evening, so many small intrequate details to the evening that made it very memorable and personal. No other restaurant has thought of the additions these guys have, will most certainly return and recommend.

    For a friend's birthday we decided to try something totally different, and in truth expected the food to be a bit terrible but the whole experience would be entertaining enough to make up for it. As it happens, however, the food is actually really very good - in particular the zebra and the ostrich - and all of the desserts are very good also. We would all certainly return for a 'normal' dinner out, this isn't just a place for special occasions or something different.
