About Rochelle Canteen at ICA
Rochelle Bar & Canteen at The Institute of Contemporary Arts on The Mall is now open. The ICA opened in 1947, a space for artists, writers and scientists to debate new ideas. In 2017 Stefan Kalmár of Artists Space, New York took over as director with an exciting new programme of exhibitions, films, talks and events starting at the beginning of October. The building has been stripped back to its former modernist simplicity, with our new bar and canteen to complement it. Rochelle Bar & Canteen will include a daily changing menu reflective of our honest, classic cooking style. The ICA also has two beautiful rooms upstairs overlooking The Mall available to book for events. Ben Coombs is head chef, while Fin Spiteri has designed our drinks list and will be in overall charge of the bar and front of house.
A difficult one but one more non-meat dish would assist. Your starters and puddings are marvellous but judging from my last two guests they were a tad hesitant when on the mains. I am so okd and overweight that I prefer to do 2 starters . As a non- drinker I appreciate that I threaten the profitability if your marvellous enterprise! K
Such great food everytime, complemented by special wines... it's always a treat to come here!
Food and drink both very reasonably priced. Portion size is very generous. Simpler dishes (brandade, pate, pavlova, peach tart) were all excellent. Not so impressed with slow-cooked lamb: similar style to Moro (and much cheaper) but not similar quality. Friendly and relaxed service: would happily pop in here again for lunch but genuinely a canteen so perhaps not for celebrations.
The perfect venue and menu for a Friday night dinner with one of my oldest and dearest friends. We will be back!
The most delicious meal I've had in a long time!
Had a lovely lunch at the Rochelle Canteen - scrumptious food and great service from the attentive, friendly staff. I can recommend the duck leg. I was feeling virtuous so skipped dessert and so was left madly jealous after a sneaky mouthful of my friend's delightful and generously proportioned pavlova!
Was quite disappointed as your original site in Shoreditch is a lot more on it and much more fun!
Russel was an amazing server!
Top three meals we've had this year. Everything was so fresh and delicious. Can't wait to come back.
Little gem in a lovely location!
Nice place, food is almost perfect. Nice waiters but a bit forgetful. Very very noisy.
Best new(ish) Restaurant in London
Always fun, always delicious
This was our second meal at the ICA ( I’ve also been to Arnold Circus twice) and as before we really enjoyed it. The food was very good and the service close to perfect. The space is nice and relaxed. Will definitely be back.
Awesome lunch! Thank you
Delicious quail, best Dover sole I have ever had. Really enjoyed it.
Such an enjoyable evening
Lovely fresh mackerel. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere - very relaxed. Perfect spot for catching up with friends. Excellent service.
Feedback is for July 17th specific, been a long time diner at Rochelle's. Our food was delayed on this particular night, however there was very little service or apology due to it. After our main courses no one offered us a dessert menu. Understand kitchens due have delays from time to time, but I think the waiters could of done a a much better job at reflecting that to the customers. Will not likely return to ICA next time.
What a delicious lunch. Radishes with smoked cod's roe to nibble on with Campari spritz as an opener set the tone, followed up by skate nob, gazpacho, quail with radicchio and rounded off with a bang with Eton Mess. All served with a wonderfully relaxed, welcoming yet informed team. Can't recommend the place enough.
Outstanding meal! Flavor, texture fabulous. Angela Jaeger NYC
A really exceptional meal - everything we’d hoped for our evening.
The food was simple. A lot of good taste. Fresh ingredients. Easy going atmosphere, but just a touch too much hullabaloo from the bar downstairs.
