I was with a very old friend and we had a lot of catching up to do. Cigalon was ideal! We had the set menu with the wine pairings to make choosing easier and we were not disappointed. The food was very good, the service good, but not too intrusive, and the wine choices unusual but worked well. I will be back!

The placed looked nice when we entered. 25gbp is fair for 3 courses in London. A wine flight was selected for each of the diners. They were supposed to match each dish but were one generic glass of wine for each dish. The starters were presented well but poor in quality and execution. The mains were warm but lacking in flavour. The deserts were the best thing there. Staff did not pick up on issues with the food or enquire for our desire to leave early. Would not go back again, far better places for quality and value in the city.

We started to enjoy our Friday on the Bar downstairs the restaurant, and after we decided to go at Cigalon.

We went for a dinner, and it was ruined by the surliest waitress i hsve ever been enfortunate enough to encounter. She barely said a word to us, plonked our food down in front of us and didn't top up our glasses once.

When paying the bill, she simply showed the card reaer in my face without even a greeting or asking if we had enjoyed the meal.

the food fortunately was good!!

My wife and I recently had our wedding reception at Cigalon and later our evening party downstairs at Baranis. I can't explain how highly i think of the staff and management at Cigalon. They were amazingly helpful and with their help we had the perfect day. The food was brilliant, the atmosphere was amazing and venue perfect.

One of the reasons why we chose Cigalon was because of the high standards of food they cook. I have eaten there on a number of occasions and i, nor the group of people i have been with have had anything less than a wonderful meal.

I highly recommend anyone goes to this restaurant.

We had a lovely meal. Enjoyed the set meal with champagne cocktail to start. All for £ 20 pp.
Amazing value. Excellent staff and good wine list. Went early evening prior to a concert. Will return.
