A Mexican and Spanish fusion eatery, Decimo in Kings Cross is the debut London brainchild of Michelin-starred chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesia. Situated on the 10th floor of the Standard Hotel, the glamorous restaurant offers floor-to-ceiling window views of the cityscape in an on-trend, firepit-flanked interior.
The Decimo menu is packed with flavour, boasting a range of dishes designed for sharing. Small plates include marinated red peppers with sourdough, a Manchego cheese quesadilla, and a broth-like spicy crab and jalapeno aguachile. Elsewhere on the menu, find the likes of tortilla generously topped with caviar, extra-large garlic langoustines and the signature crispy suckling pig leg.
Open late at the weekend, Decimo restaurant serves drinks until the early hours, where diners can gaze over Kings Cross from the undoubtably elegant and impressive wooden bar. A Mexican-inspired interior is peppered with potted tropical succulent trees in amongst the red-tiled tabletops and red chairs, while above, a patterned rattan ceiling adds an exotic touch.
A hot dining destination, Decimo in London is only available for bookings 6 weeks in advance. 10 storeys up, find the Mexican restaurant across the street from King's Cross St Pancras.

Atmosphere and interiors are great, food and drinks are overpriced. Food was nice but not amazing, still an enjoyable evening!

Having spent a lot of time at The Standard in both LA & NY I was so excited for their arrival in my neighbourhood. The views across London from the 10th floor are beautiful, I love the design of the hotel. Attentive staff. Great bar but the cocktails are hit or miss depending on who's making them, for the price they need to be improved! Moving onto the food sadly my dining experience was hugely disappointing. The menu itself is good, however, the portions are minuscule, the prices are way too high for what they serve, there are far better restaurants in London I'd rather spend my money at.

Being located on the tenth floor of the Standard you are hoping that Decimo lives up to expectations and it definitely didn't disappoint. Taking the lift up on the outside of the building with amazing views over St. Pancras and then coming out in to an amazing bar area and a large restaurant. The atmosphere was vibrant, the staff super friendly and helpful and the food was excellent in both variety and taste. Make sure you try the cocktails too

Very nice atmosphere, came to taste the caviar tortilla! I was celebrating my birthday. Dishes were served a little cold, from my expectation. Especially the caviar tortilla, furthermore we were served a caraf of wine without asking. Server was very informative and helpful. Music was great! A shame I didn’t get a birthday cookie/dessert from the waiter but I’m not sure how that works at Decimo.

Not great! Too expensive for what is is! Not worth it!

A supposed “hip vibe“ and sexy staff, obviously chosen for their youthful good looks rather than their skill or knowledge, are not sufficient to offset the tasteless food, bland presentation and ridiculous prices. The last time I had a meal presented on a piece of grease-stained brown paper on a wooden platter I was in a ghastly gastro pub in the midlands in 1997 - it was horrible there and it’s horrible here - interrupted by staff too eager to move us on to the next bottle of wine (££££) and out of our table so that the next punter could be ripped off, we felt rushed and disappointed. The newspaper critics who have written this place up must either be on the payroll or so desperate for something “different” that they have been taken in by the Arizona mock Frank Lloyd Wright designed nightclub atmosphere, complete with raffia matts on the ceiling, and forgotten that the basic requirement of a good restaurant is good food.
