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

    Great food and great value. Slightly odd place for a restaurant but very close to tubes.

    Sardine was excellent. We had the prix fix dinner -- cod fish and the three of us thought it delicious. Environs are well done. Dinner was very enjoyable. Thanks to the staff.

    Every dish was amazing. Very impressed and the price was great too.

    The chilled almond soup with melon was incredibly tasty and refreshing, a perfect summer starter.
    We followed with moules marinieres with potato beignets which were also delicicious.
    Our drinks were as great as the food and the staff managed to be attentive yet discreet, which was really appreciated.

    We enjoyed the mussels and the sea trout. Chips very good. Only downside is that we felt little hemmed in by the nearness of the other seats.

    My request for a small table didn’t seem to have been noted but this was provided as soon as we arrived. Both plates- peaches and mozzarella, and lentils were delicious - and the ice cream was just right for the hot day with a fennel biscuit to die for.

    The menu was not what was on the Bookatable site. I essentially had sausages and baked beans for a main as I didn’t want the mussels or the vegetarian option and there was only soup or cucumbers to choose for an entree. Dont go for the bloody Marie cocktail, it is very unpleasant. Overall disappointing experience, won’t be back.

    The restaurant staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the cod with clams and a light tarragon broth/sauce. The pork chop also got a big thumbs up. Great wine; ot too expensive. Highly recommend.
