Seriously good cooking, as you might expect from Emily Roux, with sophisticated but unpretentious service. Good value for dinner - though not a bargain lunch option. Expect to pay more than £50 for a midday meal if you also have a glass of wine.

Interesting, innovative food that actually tasted as it sounded on the menu (which in itself was fascinating). Impeccable service: friendly, informative and authoritative without being either condescending or obsequious - which, regrettably, is often the case elsewhere in the metropolis. A well thought out, eclectic and welcoming ambience. A wine list that is the result of a lot of thought. And a charming patronne who answered an itinerant writer's questions honestly and without hesitation. Not just a "petit bon addresse" - an experience worth travelling for. And one with character! Thank you

A coat cupboard would be very much appreciated - I did not like hanging an expensive coat on a coat stand

All great, good service, excellent food. Expensive, but then perhaps that's why.

Caractere was a delight. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The food was absolutely delicious. My only issue was that I ordered the signature celeriac “cacio e pepe”, which was delicious, but too heavy. The pictures of it show a light sauce on the beautifully presented celeriac, looking like tagliatelli, whereas when mine arrived, I had to actually check it was what I ordered as it was a mound of sauce. I think it would have been more enjoyable and interesting if they had just held back a bit on the sauce “cacio e pepe”. But...the amuse bouche, cheese bread and goodies, were a delight, as were the wait staff... It was a complete treat and I will be spreading the word as much as I can.

We absolutely loved our experience. Second visit for my husband, first for me. The service was excellent. The food was sublime - very difficult to pick a favourite course. I think it’s brilliant that guests can have different dishes from the tasting menu - we both got to try each other’s. We loved it and we wish you every success. We will most certainly be back again!

Exceeded expectations. Neighbourhood restaurant feel - relaxed vibe, lovely waiting staff, superb food and a knowledgable sommelier. Good choice for both meat eaters and vegetarians.

A fantastic and delicious dining experience that lived well up to up to our expectations and that reassured us that the tradition started by the grandparents continues for -at least- another generation. We'll be back.

The food was outstanding, service was everything you need (engaged and knowledgeable), portions a fraction small (never have enough of a good thing). Luca was excellent. Downsides, greeting was distracted, the same for leaving. As small drinkers, been immediately asked for our aperitif order was a bit off. That’s slight nit picking, solid8.5/9-10
