Cooking southern French dishes over a wood fire, Sardine - near Old Street and Angel 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, pain d’epices or a wondrous breakfast cassoulet. At lunch and dinner, Sardine's menu begins with sharing snacks and rich starters like radishes, crème fraîche & bottarga, grilled radicchio, ricotta and polenta fritters, stuffed courgette flowers and grilled octopus, or potato with capers and fennel.

Enticing main dishes include the signature dish of lamb a la ficelle, cooked slowly over a custom wood grill and served with fresh borlotti beans, green beans, oregano and olives. Winter favourites include a fabulous pork chop and roasted guinea fowl with spiced squash, couscous harissa and seasoned yoghurt. As the name suggests, fish is a specialty with turbot, red mullet, mussels and hake often featuring on the menu.

Amongst the classic desserts at Sardine in London, savour seasonal delights such as grilled white peach with raspberries and brandy cream. There’s a delightful, curated French aperitif cocktail menu focusing on ‘mini’ serves and an impressive wine list to hand, which specialises in regional French and Italian bottles.

Tucked away by the canal in a quiet corner of east London, Sardine on Micawber Street is a 5-minute walk from Old Street Station or Angel station

    Love Sardines - delicious reasonably priced seasonal French country fare in a casual setting. We enjoyed the duck & lamb - everything tender, succulent & flavourful with a hint of smokiness.
    The Stawberry millefeuille was scrummy!

    We're big fans of Sardine and always enjoy our evenings there.

    Excellent food. Service was a bit slow, but not outrageously so. Good value for money (for London). Not much choice of cheaper wines, but we enjoyed what we drank.

    Excellent food, good service, nice wine list.

    Nice little restaurant, recommended by friends as close to where I'm currently staying. Service and food were both excellent, portions are a little small but we had selected the prix fixe menu. Nice to see into the open kitchen and we were not hurried out the door. All in all a lovely evening.

    Excellent relaxed lunch. Good attentive service and we were left to chat at the end of the meal with no rush to move on. This may be different in the evening. Food was different, well presented and really tasty.
