Patio Restaurant London Reviews

Great value, great volume - Odd. That’s what springs to mind the moment you step into The Patio. Not in a bad way you understand, but everything that the place encompasses is, well, a bit on the strange side.

The dining room is like stepping back in time. It looks like a grandmother’s house. Not mine as such but just a stereotypical, perhaps Eastern European Bubushka’s gaff. Chairs don’t match, and nor does anything else. Every fork, knife spoon and plate come from a different collection, as do the glasses and crockery. Paintings crowd the walls and tables are so close together it’s like sharing your meal with your neighbours.

There’s a charm to it though, built upon by the service and food. In fact the service can be genuinely great, happy to help if you’re not sure about Polish cuisine.

If you go in the evening there’s a three course menu for just under £16. Now, if you go for it, be warned. Go hungry. I mean, skip lunch hungry. The “welcome” vodka that’s brought to the table should help matters get under way but nevertheless.

Starters go from Borsh, both traditional with meat dumplings and white with traditional dumplings, to blinis with smoked salmon which I went for. Fluffy little home made pancakes with salmon and sour cream went down very well. Bigos, or hunter’s stew, is another option to start with and although a hearty and warming dish it is a bit substantial to have at the start of a meal.

Mains were duck in a plum sauce which was also good, though the vegetables were a little over done, and golobki, stuffed cabbage leaves, almost like a Polish cannelloni and probably the most traditional Polish dish on the menu.

There are puddings too, but I’ve never had room so I can’t say much about things like their cheesecake.

All in all the food at The Patio isn’t great, but it does represent very good value for money. It’s a fun place too, great to escape the cold on a winter’s evening.
