I had a truly great meal at Edwin's. I booked a tank for 14 people for my birthday and the experience was a delight from beginning to end. Reserving the table was a breeze and Albert was very helpful given I wasn't sure on the exact numbers until last minute. We had the set menu, which was delicious and not... More

Had a great evening at Edwin's last night, food excellent and service superb. Lovely atmosphere and a real treat. This was our second visit and certainly won't be our last.

Edwins is a lovely spot with a charming atmosphere and excellent service, somewhat let down by the food which is not quite up to the same standard. Conveniently located close to Borough Tube station, the street level door gives way to a romantically lit staircase with an eccentric but attractive dining room at the top. The waiting staff are friendly... More

I went here for Valentine's Day due to its location; booked very last minute so not much thought went into but what a surprise! My boyfriend and I shared the scallops in filo (very light, perfectly cooked, a must!), hand cut chips (again, cooked perfectly), lobster ravioli (quite small but great consistency and taste), and the quail. These were all... More

A little hard to find, and no parking nearby, however when you get upstairs this is an interesting and quirky restaurant. Due to terrible traffic we arrived late and were advised that 3 course Sunday lunch would take longer than the hour that we had available. We settled for 2 courses - great value at approx £20 and had a... More

Have been here a few times but not for a while. Returned last week and was not disappointed. Amazing food (lobster ravioli, guinea fowl, cheese) great cocktails (possibly too many!) Edwin's has a lovely cozy ambience that makes it difficult to leave.

This was the first time we have visited Edwin's and could not be more impressed. The atmosphere and layout of the restaurant is wonderful. The food was exceptional, the staff were just so accommodating and their knowledge of the menu's content was tremendous, also their knowledge of the wines and suggestions were second to none. Can't recommend this venue enough,... More

Excellent atmosphere in a small(ish) restaurant lit by candlelight. The food was seriously good and the staff first rate, very attentive without being intrusive. It's not that obvious where the restaraunt is, but well worth the search!

Thank Malakker
