Restaurant description

Specialising in wood-fired meats, day-boat fish and signature corn tacos, temper Covent Garden is one of London’s most exciting barbecue restaurants, championing 'whole animal' cooking to minimise wastage. The rustic wood oven sits in the centre of the open kitchen, and is offset by cool, contemporary design and a grey & cobalt blue colour palette.

Offsetting its time-honoured cooking methods, the temper menu embraces innovation with its recipes and flavour combinations. Enjoy succulent beef skewers with kimchi or porchetta & almond mole from the grill, or taco fillings like goat, and soft shell crab.

The open kitchen at temper restaurant in London is surrounded by counter-style seating: offering full views of the chefs in action. There is also a carefully compiled list of world wines, beers and playful house cocktail concoctions.

Tucked away off the main throng on the quiet Mercer Walk, temper Covent Garden also boasts an outdoor terrace for relaxed summertime dining. Covent Garden Tube Station is a 2-minute walk away.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    I booked a table for two after an email from Temper mentioning available tables just before lockdown. I booked the supperclub but unfortunately Temper did fail to explicitly mention that the supperclub was sold out for the day. As you can imagine upon arrival they were unable to provide us with the offer. I was quite gutted because we were looking forward to the offer. Manager Mark understood where we were coming from and was still able to accommodate us and allow us to join the offer. Not only do I want to point out how amazing the food at Temper is but above everything I want to thank Mark for how quick he acted. Especially looking at all the stress he must be going through with the lockdown. He didn’t get frustrated with me and stayed kind. Above all, he came by at least three times to check on us. I can honestly say that Temper Covent Garden has won my heart like the Soho branch. Let me not start on the desert- brigadeiro cookie- IT NEVER FAILS.. please support Temper as one of the fav restaurants in London! Order the cheeseburgers, wings, the dessert, ANY steak

    We had a great time, our server Ray was exceptional even though he was serving a large number of tables on a very busy evening. The whole table had the steak club menu which was excellent value for money and we were pleasantly surprised by how drinkable the 'bottomless' red wine was. Some were disappointed by the T-bone as the meat from one side of the bone had been removed.

    I’ve been to the temper soho which was fantastic - couldn’t fault it. This one however was a real disappointment. Slow service (albeit the waiter was very friendly, but wasn’t able to be attentive), some of the food arrived luke warm and the steak was chewy and not nice. For the price it was really dissatisfactory and I will not be visiting again.

    Unfortunately wasn't as good as expected, we saw 'bottomless BBQ' and thought wow, should have read the reviews before booking. Food was a little disappointing though the Burger was very tasty this is all I ate with a handful of chips, gave my husband the 2 chicken pieces and the couple of slices of sausage, only one choice of white wine and red, we did ask if we could maybe pay some more and upgrade to Prosecco but were told no. Would I go again? no would I recommend ? sadly no Waitress was friendly !

    Food was really good but the service we received was terrible. It was super slow especially when trying to get the bill. Would only recommend on a quiet evening.

    Excellent! Bottomless meat platter was tasty and the bottomless drink menu included wine, beer and an array of cocktails! Great value for money and will definitely be booking again!
