We are adding nest to our list of fav London places.
Excellent food and great staff!
Loved it, great service, intimate setting and great food
This was our second time at Nest and it was excellent. The service is great and food is delicious. Thoroughly recommended. Thank you!
Lovely place, friendly and attentive service and wonderful food. Love the use of one type of meat to invent different menus with no wastage. Look forward to returning soon!
Super great, amazing
Fantastic experience - we have already booked again.
Great food, all taster menu was memorable, but the potatoes !!!!
Really enjoy the food and time there. I received a text to ask about dietary restrictions. Because I am pregnant, they customised some dishes for me. The service was excellent! I like it's a small restaurant, feel cozy and very nice atmosphere. The sizes of the portions were perfect too.
My wife and I went here for our 9th anniversary and had a fantastic meal. The food was so delicious that, although the menu appears to change so regularly they may no longer be serving it, I can't in all good conscience write this review without mentioning the asparagus in Jersey royal sauce, the scallops with XO sauce, the cheese and onion tart or the oyster custard. The service was very attentive without being intrusive and, to top things off, the restaurant added a couple of nice complimentary flourishes to make the evening even more special. A ten course meal, including 5 small glasses of wine and an impossibly delicious espresso martini each, came to roughly £150 between us. This is a small fraction of the price you'd expect to pay for a tasting menu of that quality anywhere else in London. There were only four staff, including the two owners, covering both the kitchen and front of house, so it felt very intimate and personal, without them ever seeming stressed or overworked. All four brought plates to the table at one point or another and it was clear they were all very passionate about producing a high quality dining experience for their guests. I honestly couldn't recommend this place highly enough.
Quirky, Friendly and Extraordinarily Tasty A lovely little restaurant about 10mins walk from Hackney Central. They have one tasting menu, which showcases a monthly meat choice (ours was rabbit) and includes a plethora of tasty treats, ranging from a delicious oyster custard topped with brassicas, a divine rabit liver parfait, a fabulous plate of brown crab well worth the supplement of £8, the rabbit in many guises and a prune stone ice cream to name a few dishes. The service was friendly, knowledgeable, charming and perfectly paced and each dish was served with real love for the ingredients. They pride themselves on wasting as little as humanly possible, the one meat rule really helps here and they fulfill this ethos without once compromising on flavour. All this for £38 a head and wines starting at £24, we will certainly be returning and can't wait to take our friends for a culinary treat. The only thing I would tweak would be the wine list, though the Soave was certainly quaffable and a crisp, clean Pils would be nice. However this didn't dent our enjoyment in the slightest as the attention to detail, to sourcing super quality ingredients and to knowing every aspect of their supply chain made this a meal to remember which has me licking my lips again just thinking about it. Thanks
Lovely late Sunday roast. Great vegetarian option, bread, beer and bloody marys. Dig.
Top restaurant! Great front of house staff and good food
Thanks for another lovely meal :)
We had a fabulous evening. Totally loved the small intimate dining space. Service was attentive, helpful and informative. We all really enjoyed the tasting menu especially as it removed all decision making apart from the wine and we still asked for recommendations, of which were very helpful and well considered for the menu. Only criticism would be that of the many courses, most were rich and creamy (albeit very interesting, tasty and beautifully executed). Thank you for a great birthday evening, really love having such a fabulous morsel of a restaurant in our neighbourhood.
Nest is an amazing restaurant - the tasting menu is excellent from start to finish, the atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable with everything from the restaurant rooms, candles, menus, decoration etc. just perfectly matching. The staff is fantastic and does a great job also with pairing wines to the individual courses. Very highly recommended!
Great food - what a treat. We came away totally full and loved each of the 11 courses! Our week was rabbit week, and it was just as good if not better as the time I went and it was mutton week.
Brilliant meal, lovely atmosphere and really friendly staff. Will definitely be back.
Best fine dining meal we've had in London. Loved every little bit of it.
One of the best meals and new restaurants in London I’ve tried in a long time! My wife and I absolutely loved it, such an interesting menu. Will definitely be going back
Inventive, flavourful, playful dishes. Lovely, understated atmosphere. All served with unobtrusive charisma. And excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
