Great for Groups
Had dinner at BBB Shoreditch with my sister for a catch up. We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselved, great atmosphere and fantastic service from the staff. With the TopTable offer, the food was worth the value, not sure i'd pay full price. Good food, but not graet. The venue is perfect for groups, lots of lively atmosphere, definitely booking for the Christmas Party :)
Wheelchari Access, you sure?
there is no wheelchair access although it implys there is on the site; AT ALL.
But its a nice place, foods fashionable and its a nice crowd.
Great Fun and Food
Had a lovely evening meal, great value on the top table offer
We had the 50% off food offer. Four of us went and had a fabulous night. The food was excellent the the service was superb and very friendly. The front of house guy was quite pretentious which doesnt give the best first impression however once sat at our table all the staff were really lovely and friendly. I would definitely recommend going to this restaurant.
Great Cocktails, Good food!
On arriving at BBB (on a Thursday evening) we were shown to our table, the restaurant/bar has a great atmosphere and the decor is luxurious. We ate on the Toptable 50% off Set Menu deal, which was great value for money at only £17.25 each! The cocktails however are £10 a time so I think if the food was anymore expensive the final bill would have been way over priced. On saying that though the food was of a good quality, I think some of the items on the menu may have contained a little too much Garlic for some, but luckily for me I really like lots of garlic anyway! Dessert was great and staff were attentive. Would definitely recommend BBB for group bookings, special occasions or for couples!
Great celebration night
Took my wife there for dinner and the quality of the food was of the highest standard. I had Cod and she had Venison- both brilliantly cooked. The service is fab and the waiters are very attentive and eager to help. Loved the deco and the subdued lighting.. all in all a great place to eat. I will definitely go back. Our waitress Chrystal was excellent..and sexy !
you are not disappointed here
Booked for party of 6: All very efficient. Place was packed on a Saturday night. Wanted the East End with good vibe + atmosphere that allows for dinner, party, drinks and dancing without change location. Food was very good although portions on the smaller side but nothing to complain and service was quick, attentive and accommodating. You can choose rareness of your burger, which stands for quality. After dinner just go downstairs, join the party crowd and have a good time. All ages, all very friendly, dressed up, and you feel good being there. We left 'already' just past midnight to go home, but decided that the evening was a great success, particular for those not used to the London buzz!
Top class experience
I took a group of 11 people, including 6 friends visiting from Norway. The food was delicious (I would happily have had my baked cod and lentils main course and bread and butter pudding again). The service was discrete but attentive. Our waiter checked with me when he noticed he only had 11 orders but we'd booked for 12 - one person couldn't come. With the 50% discount on food the evening was superb value too. This was my second visit. I'll definitely be going again.
The birthday experience
The Host Nico always makes you feel a million dollars, his politeness and professionalism are refreshing and extraordinary at the same time.
Dario , the waiter of our table , is definitely the best waiter in London.
Thank you for the great time ! Unbeatable value!!
Hard to find a better set menu!
Had the 50% off set menu which is originally priced at £30. therefore, at £15, this is an absolute bargain for what you get. Got seated straightaway by a very friendly waitress. Bread was warm and was given with soft butter and some garlicy stuff which was great! The set menu had a lot of variety and the ones we chose were amazing. I got the crispy belly of mutton with this outstanding mint jelly, followed by fillet steak which was cooked to perfection. The white chocolate creme brulee was to die for! Definitely going to go again!
We went on a Thursday evening to Beach Blanket Babylon to celebrate our anniversary. We were given a booth on the upper level and had a great view of the bar and restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly and there was a great atmosphere as the restaurant filled up. The music playing was great - old school RnB and the way the restaurant is decorated is amazing.
We had the 3 course set menu which was delicious. I had the caramalised onion and goats cheese tart and risotto, both of which I would highly recommend and we shared between us the chocolate tort and white chocolate creme brule which were divine.
All in all for what we had this restaurant provided a great place for us to celebrate our anniversary and great value with the Top Table.
BBB was overall very good.
BBB was overall very good. Food dishes were simple but tasty. Good value for money. There was also a good choice of cocteils. Everything we tried was nice. I was expecting to see a vibrant bar on a Friday evening but it was rather quiet, although the bar area was nice.I will go there again.
Initially some difficulty with communication as they told me on the day that I needed to get our party of 8 to pre order of the set menu, but it was almost impossible at that late notice. Device was good but mostly because the resteraunt was empty and the food was very good, I had steak which was excellent. We had the 50% off the 3 course set which made it good value but the alcohol is expensive and the total bill ended up being fair. I would say it would have been overpriced at full price .
really good place to go out for a good night with friends.
Perfect Birthday Party
I had a group booking for 20 people, we had to pre order which meant everything was taken care of in advance. The food was delicious, perfectly timed and everyone left happy. Thank You.
A Quality meal with the lady
Simple put our experience of Beach Blanket Babylon in Shoreditch was amazing!
The food was perfect, the cocktails were of a very high standard, the service was first class and the ambiance perfect to celebrate with my lady.
The staff were excellent, very attentive and not invasive of the evening i was sharing with my lady.
Entree's came quickly and the finished plates taken very quickly, the main of Chateaubriand and lobster with dauphinoise potatoes and sautéed spinach was incredible!!!
Overall an extremely enjoyable experience and i would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality evening!!
Good food, just not great value.
Overall experience was pretty good. Very helpful and friendly staff.
Food tasted great. My date wasn't as impressed as i was, but she's a pickier eater anyway ;)
We got the Valentine's Day treatment, so it was a 3 course meal, nicely prepared, starters were great, sides were nice enough (chips, though you can get mash/pots if you'd like).
Drinks were a bit of a mixed bag though. You get a free cocktail with your Valentine's package, but then you're offered a winelist, which seems more appropriate... and then a glass of bubbly towards the end - so a bit of a mixed message.
Also - i thought the wine was a bit pricey for what it was. £39 for a £9 pinot is fairly heavy, especially in an area more famous for its Pop-Up eateries than swank.
the retaurant is on the steep side but other fanstastic cocktails, great service and good food and really good ambience.
Went here for my birthday
Had to book a table for 10 people, last minute for a friday night in February was worried I wouldn't find anything. I wanted somewhere where we could have drinks and food but had a lively atmosphere. Luckly Beach Blanket Babylon came up as available! Frankly I couldn't have planned it better Beach Blanket Babylon had a great atmosphere, nice decor and played some great 80's, 90's and 00's tunes!!! Maybe not everyones cup of tea but me and my friends loved it! The food and drinks I thought were great for the price which everyone finished. And the staff were friendly and attentive. Slight downside was the club downstairs. Not that many people but it might be just that night?
Dinner with a friend
Ate at BBB with a good friend for the first time having been to the Notting Hill branch numerous times. Very different vibe from NH but excellent food, ambience and service as expected. P Star martini was delicious!!
Going back again soon
I had the venison which was lovely and didn't order starter so that I could manage dessert. However the portions were fairly small and next time I shall go for all 3 courses. Amazing cocktails.
Fabulous food, fabulous venue
I went with my boyfriend on Saturday night for dinner to celebrate my birthday. We arrived a little late (I called ahead to warn them) and the host was very pleasant and accommodating. We started with delicious cocktails. Our food was absolutely divine!! My scallops were cooked to perfection and my boyfriend ordered the most delicious cauliflower soup. For main i ordered the venison which was mouth watering and my boyfriend had the chicken which was equally delicious.
My only criticism. of Beach Blanket was the wine list was a bit over priced. The staff were very attentive and pleasant. I would highly recommend Beach Blanket Babylon and will definitely be returning in the near future.
Good service, good food, but a bit on the pricey side
Staff very attentive and pleasant.
Staff very attentive and pleasant. Food was very good . Very lively atmoshere . Well worth a visit.
Went here for dinner with
Went here for dinner with a friend recently. The decor was eclectic but fairly tasteful and the food was outstanding. I had a lentil salad which was extremely fresh. Would definitely go back again.
Cocktails were great & there's
Cocktails were great & there's a good bar downstairs. The food was good but nothing jumped out at you.
I was disappointed because
I was disappointed because on Sunday around 3pm we had very few choices
From morning to noon menu! They should allow clients to order from the afternoon menu!
Because I did not want breakfast I had their burger! Homemade bread was crazy!
It was a nice burger although I wanted to eat durck !
venue stunning, stafftoo attentive?
Venue is beautiful, I took my mother to celebrate her 50th and she loved it. Very quirky.
Although we had the table for 2 hours, I felt the waiter was trying to finish our service asap. Possibly because we purchased the £21 wine, as opposed to the £201 wine?
Approaching us every few minutes to ask if we were ready to order infuriated me, I was there to catch up with my mother after having not seen her for a few months, not get rushed out. And quite frankly it made me want to take longer to annoy him (which I did). Unfortunately he did not take my hints and I had to tell him he needs to leave us with more time.
THAT SIDE, FANTASTIC FOOD, STUNNING VENUE, ATTENTIVE & WELL TRAINED STAFF, EXCELLENT COCKTAILS(!!) & ALL ROUND GREAT RESTAURANT
Great place and tasty food
Excellent service, atmosphere and food. Waiters and bar staff were friendly, food was devine although not a big enough portion for the men in our party.
The service was exceptional.
The service was exceptional. Too often people are happy to complain but not compliment. Our main waiter was Matthew and he was amazing. Coupled with the tall girl (manager maybe??) that sorted a table downstairs in the club. Two workers that are a credit to customer service.
One small downside, the bar downstairs didn't do the cocktail menu that was available upstairs. My girlfriend ordered some upstairs and asked the batman if he could help her take them down but he said "No!"
A small blotch on a great night. Highly recommend the Camembert cheese box as a starter to share.
Went to Beach Blanket Babylon with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. The food was excellent and the service was very good. It's great value and the place has a real buzzy atmosphere while still being suitable for a date.
We even got to have a chat with Rex Newmark the Executive Chef there who on hearing it was my birthday was kind enough to get us a round of drinks, such a gent!
We all had a fabulous time!
I had dinner here with a friend and wanted something a bit more special than your average London Brasserie. The staff were fantastic, the ambience perfect - relaxed but classy. Only two niggles which admitedly, aren't really a big deal. The brand new menu only had 1 vegetarian main (I'm sure they would have been able to sort something had I asked) My friend ordered the beef but wasn't told it didn't come with sides, potatoes etc. so all he had was a simple slab of meat! Again, this was the first night of a new menu and I think things will tighten up once the staff are used to it. Overall it's a lovely place.
BBB IS THE PLACE TO EAT AND DRINK
Had a fantastic brunch and great cocktails the decor is lovely and great atmosphere. only down point is that i paid cash including service charge but waitress did not come back with my change it was only a few quid but its not the point as I already paid the service charge so she ended up with nearly a tenner tip as I was to embarrassed to ask for my change if she would have bought the change back I would have left it for her. Apart from that it was absolutely lovely. You should def give it a try.
Good fun for birthday celebration
We went to BBB as a 'girls' night out' for a joint 50th birthday celebration. We were concerned about the 2 hour limit due to the restaurant's policy of two seatings on weekend nights, and they allowed us to shift our start time 30 minutes earlier, to have 2.5 hrs. This allowed for cocktails beforehand and late stragglers to join us without feeling too rushed. Only complaint was that they ignored my request for a seat at ground floor level (we were up a half-level) due to one of our party's accessibility issues. This led to some embarrassment / difficulty for access to the WCs (downstairs) during the meal. Otherwise, good food and pretty good service, great venue!
The food, the service, the drinks - all were excellent. Looking forward to my next visit.
Very Funky Place with great food
I'd been wanting to try this place out for some time, and it didn't disappoint.
There was a real buzz in the place - this may have been due to the DJ on the balcony!
The food was good, the waiter was very personable and have a good few jokes with us. Quality wise, it looked great and tasted great.
I think it's around £30 per head, but I would definitely go here again if I wanted to leave a lasting impression on someone
We had the best night at BBB
We had the best night at BBB - we arrived at 7pm and were shown to our table - by a slightly stiff and unfriendly lady, but everyone else was much friendlier and welcoming! The setting was brilliant - it was a booth with a round table so all 5 of us could sit closely and have a cosy chat. They remembered everything about us throughout the night - who wanted certain cocktails made in certain ways etc, which made it really easy. Food and cocktails were yummy. The music was brilliant - really good tunes so after we'd finished dinner, our waiter also found us a great spot downstairs in front of the dj booth so we could carry on the party. We enjoyed ourselves so much and left at about 3am...would definitely go back again!
Wedding anniversary meal
When we booked we told them it was our wedding anniversary. The restaurant has a great ambience. The waiter was very attentive. I ordered a pear martini which was delicious. I was then given a cocktail on the house as it was our anniversary but my husband didn't get anything?! We then ordered a glass of champagne each. It would have been better to just give us the champagne on the house I would have thought. Anyway, besides that the food was fantastic the service was excellent. We will definitely be back!
Delighted with food and menu,
Delighted with food and menu, however we were seated close to two very loud hen parties which made it diificult to hear anything. There was also a very long gap between our starter and main, which was acceptable due to how busy it was, but no apology was given.
Our waitress was the most miserable person I have ever met.
All in all a great evening, food was great, service was good. Also close to home, so we will be back.
Great ambience, bit overpriced
Great looking restaurant, service was good, ambience was great and although the food was good it was overpriced for what you got.
Very noisy but good food
The food was good, it needs some work. The service in overall needs work too. Sometimes they were so accommodating that there was no consistency and it felt like everyone had the head cut off and didn't know where to go or do. But, they were nice so it compensated or balanced the service. The noise was very bad, the music needs to be control down, way down. People when go out to restaurant they go for the food and their ambiance but also to share and talk to one another. Here it's all about making more noise than is needed. Once they turn the volume down they will do better.
I would highly recomend BBB,
I would highly recomend BBB, lovely cocktails, yummy food, Champagne bar and amazing songs played all night long (but not loud to intefer with a good catch up with your friends). The only thing that let the resturant down was the greeting service, we got there early so we could have a drink before dinner, after letting them know we had arrived we were asked in a very rude tone "what do you want me to do about it?" A simple offer to show us the drinks menu would have been a far better way to handle this situation. It started badly, but the service was a lot better at the bar and resturant. Overall a lovely place to come.
A very pleasant evening in
A very pleasant evening in a lively environment. Food was well presented and service friendly. Only one minus point, the langoustines with the beef fillet were more decorative than a useful addition to the taste experience.
I met a friend in the bar area as she had got their first. I sat there for 15 minutes, waving and smiling at the bar staff to try and get a drink, as my friend already had one, only to give up and just go to our table. The food was average - overcooked and simple, but made to look pretty. The thing that realy lets BBB down is the staff... and they are the reason I will not return. If the definition of a waitress was to ignore customers, talk amongst yourself, tut/roll your eyes if a customer asks for anything different then BBB have the best waitresses in the country. I asked for cream instead of ice cream, it was bought in a ramekin! We waited over 25 minutes for our final plates to be cleared and then 10 minutes for the bill. Bad BBB
Nice place, bring friends
Great atmosphere, good service and food (salad was rather limited :p but meat superb) Best enjoyed with a group or five or more or just for casual drinks ;)
Great food, venue and atmosphere.
Let down by service towards the end - had to wait 30 minutes for our last drinks after dessert. Our waitress was rude also.
Went for bar snacks and cocktails
Went for bar snacks and cocktails - food was good and cocktails very good! Great atmosphere and very comfy seating. Service lacked a little as had to keep calling someone over to be served. Would go again.
Very good food but quite pricey
Very good food but quite pricey only for special occasions
Cool,quirky ambience& fab cocktails
Celebrated my 30th birthday with a group of friends, our first time at bbb and must say we had a fantastic night! First impressions- great ambience and decor, staff were very welcoming. Food was of a good standard but the choice of menu was very limited and overpriced, which was disappointing. The cocktails were fab, particularly their famous pornmartini, a must try! Downstairs they have a bar/club area, music was a mix of r&b, dance and old school classics, this was very enjoyable. Overall, it was a great night, next time I'd skip dinner and go for drinks and a dance instead!
