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.

    Having been to Temper on multiple occasions, every time we come down from the North East, I have to say this visit was disappointing. Pizzas just weren’t warm, still tasty but definitely lacking over previous visits. We heard another table complaining about a similar issue also. Maybe it was an off day, we will be back.

    Hi! We visited Temper covent garden for my husband's birthday. We did the unlimited pizza and wine deal. I did this about 1 month ago with a friend for her birthday and it was absolutely amazing! This time for my husband's birthday it was still good, but the pizza had changed. The portions were smaller (which is fine, as it's unlimited!), but what was once my favourite pizza (the beef/bone marrow pizza) seemed to have a completely different recipe. It wasn't as good. The beef was not very nice and smaller bits, and the bone marrow wasn't cooked through and was cold in the middle, so we barely got any marrow. I think they must have a new chef or have changed the way of cooking their meats. The overall experience was still good, as there were other good pizzas and the staff is nice, but was a little sad about the changed pizza.

    Lovely pizzas, house wine was ok and service was friendly. Found it strange that the restaurant closed at 7pm on a Sunday night in Covent Garden.

    Amazing experience from start to finish. I have previously visited the Soho branch so already had high expectations and Covent Garden did not disappoint. The bottomless BBQ and summer cocktails is a great deal! No compromise on the quality of the food and the cocktails were delicious too. As it was our anniversary we even received a complimentary dessert too which was a lovely touch! All staff very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be returning

    Service was amazing. Our waitress was a credit to the restaurant. Friendly, helpful and good fun.

    Pizzas were delicious but very filling so definitely didn’t eat that much. Wine wasn’t cold so that was the only negative.

    fairly friendly on arrival and a nice setting. Pizza was very good, but was like trying to get blood out of a stone for drinks - could have been more attentive. Asked for another round of pizza which didn't turn up - did offer free pudding ( thanks) however two of those didn't arrive either.

    Quite likely this was an anomaly, but service was dire.
