"The parsley dumplings with my plaice and chestnut mushrooms were roughly the size of marbles and tasted as if the chef had mixed a bit of chopped-up herb into some regular Sunday lunchtime mash. The lemon and garlic flavouring was as uninspiring as it sounds." READ REVIEW

"Our main courses confirmed that he has hired a chef with an amazingly light touch, rare mastery of textural contrast, and the inventiveness to compliment his technique." READ REVIEW

"In short, this is a seafood restaurant for people who don't like seafood. All the essentials – terrific breads, salted butter, crisp fishcakes – are present and correct. But the edges have been smoothed away." READ REVIEW

"I followed that with hake. Nice to see it on the menu. Not so much on the plate. It was okay. Nice crust on it. But not very hot. And a bit dry." READ REVIEW

"It’s admirable that Outlaw has chosen to transfer his more casual style to London, rather than try to replicate his two-Michelin-starred dining room... but Outlaw’s is a bad fit for the intimate, luxurious surroundings of the Capital, which will always be haunted by the ghosts of haute cuisine past, however much its owners might want to exorcise them."

"Over-salting and a decision — or default position — to serve everything tepid is common to our chosen main courses. The roasted cod fillet seems to have been brined, which can add backbone but here the outcome is just saltiness and opacity." READ REVIEW
