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, 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, stuffed courgette flowers and grilled octopus, potato capers & 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 & olives. As the name suggests, fish is a specialty with turbot, red mullet, mussels and Hhake often featuring on the menu.

Amongst the classic desserts at Sardine in London, savour seasonal delights such as grilled white peach, raspberries & brandy cream. Focussing on regional French & Italian bottles, an impressive wine list is also on hand to compliment your meal, whilst renowned bartender Clotilde Lataille brings her expertise to the fore with a specially curated French aperitif cocktail menu.

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.

  • ((((( 5 October 2017 by Kathrin Meyrick from London

    Excellent food and service.

  • ((((( 7 September 2017 by Matt Seakins from London

    Overall a fantastic experience and will be back. Service started exceptionally with both hosts looking after us exceptionally. Started with a drink, the negroni was small but punchy and the foraged martini an unforgettable treat.

    Onto the food, excellence is certainly in the entree, loved everything we tried here particularly the salt cod. Onto the mains and the real hero was the duck.

    It was very good indeed. Superb grouse, not dry as it can be, in fact quite possibly the best I have ever had, and the pig's head starter was vg. Good non-alcoholic drinks, and the waiting staff were just right - attentive but without intruding, and they got things done briskly and well. Thumbs up!

    Simply the best restaurant I've been to in London in years. Everything about it was superlative. The food was exceptional, the service was exceptional, atmosphere, drinks everything. It was perfect.

    This is the third time we have eaten at sardine and the only time we have not been 100% happy with the overall meal. It was a grand bouffe the courses were nice other than the bourride my daughters had no potatoes in it and had to wait for some to be bought to the table. And the fish gurnard and cod was mainly gurnard as could not decern any large flakes associated with cod.
