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

    The food was amazing as always, only negative it that number of tales that are squeezed in only giving you 10cm from your neighbours table.

    The food was fantastic, it was a small menu to choose from but well chosen items that tasted great. Portions for the mussels and chips were a little on the small side. Service was excellent. Some of the charges added were not obvious until the bill e.g a very reasonable £1 for the water and an automatically added 15% service charge. Given the high level of service I was more than happy to pay them - but maybe they should have been written on the menu - the deal was for 2 courses but there was no price given if you wanted the 3rd course as well.

    It’s in an odd location but that adds to the pleasant surprise on arrival. The menu isn’t huge but had a good range - maybe a touch heavy on the chard on the day we went. The fish options we had were brilliant. It’s a small modern restaurant but the staff were lovely and the wine was really good. I’d definitely recommend it.

    We love coming here. Great food and very well priced. Often interesting ingredients. Lovely, lovely staff and interesting cocktails to boot.

    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!
