SquareMeal Review of Comedor Grill & Bar

Although the name is Spanish (it translates as ‘dining room’), South America is the foodie reference point at this refurbished eatery on Islington’s main drag. The kitchen is visible through a glass panel, allowing punters to watch the action as chefs grill slabs of Argentinian beef and prepare other staples of Latin American cuisine. Ceviches, empanadas, quinoa-stuffed aubergine and chicken aji panca (strips of marinated breast in chilli sauce with yellow potatoes and huancaína sauce) could give way to a massive 700g churrasco steak with, say, rocoto pepper sauce and yuca chips, while dessert might bring traditional alfajores biscuits with dulce de leche and lemon sorbet. Comedor also turns tricks as a drinking haunt with a lively list of South American wines and a 70-strong roster of pisco sours, mojitos, piña coladas, margaritas and other cocktails.

Five of us for an early meal so very quiet but to be expected. The staff were very good. The food was very good. We all had different cuts of steak. Mine was one of the best I have had. The puddings were also very good. Will definitely go back.

Ive been to Comedor with a group of friends and had a lovely time there. The atmosphere is relaxed and lively and the service was really friendly and professional. I tried the Ceviche and then the fillet, both delicious , one of my friends had the sea bass and said it was the best he ever tried. A large selection of wines we tried an Argentinian Malbec and we loved it. Good value for money Im thinking of celebrating my birthday there.
