Absolutely delicious! Even the simplest dish, asparagus with butter, was simply phenomenal. We went for lunch, and it was a quiet, casual feel. Service was excellent. Would be interested to see how dinner service is. Would definitely recommend to others! More

We absolutely loved our experience from start to finish. The staff were very attentive but not over powering, we were at the restaurant on a Sunday so had the 3 courses for 35 which is unbelievable value for the quality of food you receive, everything was cooked too perfection and would highly recommend paying extra for the confit potato’s as they were so good. Such a lovely environment to spend our Easter Sunday. More

A very good meal it a decent price. Efficient friendly service, and a wine list that doesn't inflate the overall bill. There could be more specials on the board I guess, the choice is not fantastic.

Friendly, well-informed staff, great cocktails, good wine list that is sensibly organised by price and delicious seasonal food. Good deals as well, including a BYOB on a Monday with no corkage. More

Good value limited choice lunch menu. Food is excellent. However, book with OpenTable and not the restaurant web site. I initially used their web site, got a “we’ll get back to you to confirm your reservation” message and they didn’t! So, I cancelled the initial unconfirmed booking and made an OpenTable reservation - which they simply cancelled! We were lucky and got a table but their system is, at the very least, not clear and not efficient. Lesson learned!! More

SMITHS Of Smithfield No.3 Restaurant & TerraceSMITHS Of Smithfield No.3 Restaurant & Terrace
370 reviews
$$$$
British | Farringdon, City of London

Smiths has three levels - bar on ground floor, bistro on second level and posh nosh on top floor with great views and a quiet and polished atmosphere. I have taken important clients to the top floor restaurant on several occasions (so that in itself is a recommendation) and it has always had the desired effect of rewarding good clients and impressing new ones. Being in Smithfield a steak is usually on the order and this time my guest and I shared the chateabriand at £95. It was cooked well (medium rare) and there was plenty of it. They place it on a small elevated rack on your table, it takes a while to get through that much meat so if they could add some sort of warmer underneath it would stay warmer. I did mention this to them but only at the end when I though of it. Even a tea light would help. Good food, good service, nice surroundings and great views. Big bill but (almost) worth it for the desired effect of a special occasion. More

Caphe PhoCaphe Pho

Vietnamese | Farringdon, City of London

I've been a regular at the old Caphe House when they were in Bermondsey Street, so when they moved to this new spot near Smithfields Market I thought I'd pop by to see how the new place looked. It is about 20 times bigger than their previous joint! Nicely decorated, clean and spacious. Most importantly they have kept up the quality of their food, in particular the pho tai (rare beef pho) was still amazing. The most tender beef is used (compared to some other Vietnamese establishments, some of whom use dry, stringy, untasty beef) and the stock I could drink all day long. Great Viet coffee, very slight complain is it is always too sweet so from experience I would always request for less condensed milk and that works a treat. Lovely banh mi too, second only to Banh Mi Bay 10 minutes walk away. Overall I am glad to say that I still love this place and am very glad they kept the food amazing despite moving to a different larger place (We went at 2pm though so can't comment on how they deal with a bigger lunchtime crowd). Menu has also definitely expanded which is a good thing I suppose. Not sure about its location, it's sort of behind some large buildings in a warehouse-y area, very much off any main streets. Not a place you would walk by easily and stumble into. More

Not having visited Hix for several years, I was delighted to find the standards were unchanged - excellent menu, great welcoming service and at table. Outstanding Chablis 1er cru and oysters got us going. Sole needed to be cooked a bit more but when “re-done” was delicious as was my breaded pork cutlet. It was all a delight and my Swiss guest vowed to come back. More

Great place to eat. Definitely worth a visit with a bunch of mates ....a corner of Ibiza in the middle of Clerkenwell, just with a few more chimneys and a bit more grit Great food, excellent for sharing - only realised it was a Fuller's pub as we left, which explained the quality. As chains go, they are up there. More

Went for dinner on a Bank Holiday Monday, was told when booking that main courses are 50% off on Mondays but assumed this wouldn't be the case on Bank Holiday. However this was the case, and as well as half price food which was already fairly priced without any discount, draft pints were also £3 on Mondays. I think they have a deal like this for every weekday. On top of that the food was great with top notch service in a nice setting. 10/10, can have nothing bad to say about it More
