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

    High quality canteen-style dining. Was a bit smoky from the kitchen though, hopefully this can be addressed!

    Excellent meal, excellent service. They coped well with my gluten allergy and they allowed the dog to come in. Altogether a very nice evening

    Intimate but buzzy. A short, highly inventive menu with temptations in every dish. Excellent service and friendly chefs who were happy to chat at the end of service. Portions were generous and the food was perfectly presented - and delicious! Sensibly priced - especially the wine. Would definitely recommend it for a relaxed dinner with friends.

    A favourite restaurant that always delivers big flavours in its regional offerings from South West France. Great value set menu, too.
