Vegetarian dining at its best: Carnivale offers great Mediterranean food from Tabouleh to salads and sandwiches. Trust us: This is some very inspired cooking taking place on Whitecross Street. No surprise that Carnivale were able to quickly gain a loyal following among the many that are looking for light and healthy food in London. Come by and try some of the best Mediterranean food you’ve had in a long time. Or, even better, have it delivered to your desk: There’s a delivery service during lunchtime.
Easily one of our favourites: Carnevale on Whitecross Street is a charming and quiet vegetarian
restaurant, quite a rarity in a City full of flashy chains, distinguished by some of the best cooking,
whether it be vegetarian or carnivorous, in the area. The use and combination of ingredients is
imaginative and brings out the most delicate of flavours. Lemon gives a tang to goat's cheese tart,
passion fruit adds a sweet freshness to a sensuous chocolate mousse.
At Carnevale you may well encounter the most delicious artichokes you’ve ever tasted, in another of their savoury tarts. Excellent organic wine complements the food. The smallness of the interior space is off set by the tiny glass-roofed courtyard. Unspoilt by taped music, Carnevale on Whitecross Street is a natural meeting-place for talking to friends while savouring the food.
Good quality, thoughtful, well made food for vegetarians (and no complaints from meat eaters too). Surprisingly good organic house red wine too! I haven’t been here in a while and I’m really glad to see it’s still doing the business - don’t change!
The food is great here (large portions too) and the staff were so charming and welcoming even though we were late. It tends to be quieter in the evenings but if you are looking for good veggie food its great. (and they had a grüner veltliner white wine on the menu) my favourite white wine.... well worht the visit ...
very quiet - very good - very yummy. Always great food - will go again - very busy in the street outside. thank you X
