Archipelago Description

Archipelago looks like someone went backpacking in Bali, bought everything possible and then transported it back into a London restaurant. They also then did a potted trip around the world and got pretty excited about eating outside the box, bringing dishes such as crocodile wrapped in vine leaves, crispy zebra jerky and pan fried chermoula crickets to London. This is the restaurant for those who want to have an adventure but don't really want to leave Zone 2. The real wild ones end their meal with the Visit from the Doctor, a medicine chest of 12 digestive potions. Try it if you dare.

“Exotic little place in Fitzrovia with unusual yet ethically sourced food in London's Fitzrovia. A lovely little intimate setting to enjoy exquisite dishes inspired from the farthest corners of the world. We had a great night out and have now listed this as a favourite spot to eat and take out of town guests for a memorable meal. I dn't know what Micheal was thinking about with his review, all the things he hated about the place, is what makes Archipelago! Who wants to go the same restuarant template that you get in most high streets! If he wanted a quick dinner, i'm sure there were plenty of take-aways around the corner. I'm glad i don't work with him, i want to have fun and to relax at my xmas party, i would love to have it there!”

“I have looked through the other reviews on this and other websites and am at a loss to understand how anybody could say anything positive about this restaurant, unless they had been paid to do so. In my opinion, it's probably one of the worst places I have ever eaten at, and a classic example of a London rip off: High prices, poor service, lousy food, and cheap gimmicks. The location could hardly be worse: It's tucked away up a windswept side street miles from anywhere, near Goodge Street Station. Things don't improve when you arrive. The place is the size of a broom cupboard, and the lack of space is made worse by the fact that it's crammed full of what can only be described as junk. Carved African heads juxtaposed with plastic Buddahs, and the like. There is no theme here: It looks like the contents of someone's attic. The result is an uncomfortable eating experience, where you find yourself crammed up next to your fellow diners. If you are broader than average, forget it! The food is also hardly memorable. I have had much better at my local greasy spoon. I had a (so called) Mexican dish, one of the only vegetarian options, and received a tiny packet of tasteless rice wrapped in vine leaves, and a very uninteresting, miniscule portion of vegetable stew. This was served on a large plate, placed on top of a piece of slate, on top of a piece of wood. This was all about presentation, and not food. The service was also a joke: It took them 3 hours to serve 3 courses! They didn't seem very interested in us, despite the fact that, as a group of 12 people having our Xmas office party, the bill was not much short of £1000. In short, avoid this rip off establishment like the plague, unless you like overpriced, tasteless food, or you are a moron who likes to pay through the nose for nothing. ”

Archipelago Food Menu

Archipelago Restaurant seek out the finest culinary influences from around the world and fuse them, bringing together the exotic, the exciting and the unexpected right here in the centre of London. Until now, many of their globally inspired ingredients have remained undiscovered by the Western European palate, which is why they offer the journey, and the key to unlock a world of flavours.

Updated 09/04/2009

Archipelago Drinks Menu

The wine list, like their cuisine, presents a refreshing and eclectic repertoire. In addition to classic European varietals, they also offer wines from independent, boutique producers. Many of the wines are produced by low-volume, small, family-owned wineries, using grapes that are not always typical to that region or country, as with the Gewürztraminer from South Africa.
