Square Meal Review of Waterloo Bar & Kitchen ?

Pitched just round the corner from The Old Vic, this chilled-out bistro is naturally an evergreen favourite with theatre types, commuters and locals alike. Solid wooden floorboards, whirring ceiling fans and worn leather booths set the tone for a menu of no-nonsense, cosmopolitan fodder that delivers a mix of unchallenging but ‘imaginative’ ideas from far and wide. Starters such as crispy duck salad with a hoi sin dressing can be ordered as mains, and the full line-up spans everything from herb-crusted cod fillet in a lemon butter sauce to rosemary-marinated rump of lamb with red wine jus. Decent pricing and belly-rubbing puds like pear and frangipane tart keep locals coming back for more, while the brief wine list offers tasting notes for matching grub with grape. Brunch and Sunday roasts play their part, and pre- or post theatre deals also come ‘highly recommended’.

    Rate My Bistro :: Waterloo Bar and Kitchen – Waterloo

    Waterloo Bar and Kitchen had an old sort of feel to it. Its dark wooden furniture, black panelled walls and some booth cushioned seating made up the dining area. The back of the restaurant is where the open kitchen was. There is always something good about being able to see the food being prepared and made. There was also a small bar area. There was a good range of food on the menu. As it was a cold day, it felt like the meal should be started off with soup. The soup of the day was Vegetable Soup. It was a fairly big bowl of soup and I couldn’t finish it all. The soup was tasty but was also spicy. I am not sure if it was due to chilli or pepper...
