Restaurant description

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

    Lovely restaurant and staff. The food is always delicious and excellent quality. A side dish salad was disappointing - just leaves and no discernible dressing but a minor point in an overall good meal. Cocktails are bit mean in measures (imo). As always with this restaurant, I HATE how close the tables are together. We joked with couple next to us about being on a double date, less than half an inch between tables.

    Trendy little eatery tucked away behind regents canal as it goes through from islington towards shoreditch. The food was actually delicious - especially the meat and the wine was refreshing. Staff were really helpful and friendly too. Loved the art on the walls / general decor and vibe - would recommend!
