If the thought of feasting over homemade pasta, pizza and perfectly cooked fresh seafood makes you weak at the knees, look no further than Islington favourite The Fig Tree. The creatives behind this Upper Street locale have made it their mission to bring their love of Mediterranean culture to the London gastronomy scene. The stylish restaurant has a wildly delicious menu and extensive wine list to boot and their team can assist you with matching the perfect drop to enhance the flavours of your meal. While London has no shortage of incredible restaurants at it’s fingertips, The Fig Tree offers something unique and truly special.
Inspired by the rich culinary culture of Italy, Spain and the Mediterranean, The Fig Tree restaurant in London’s vibrant Islington is a chic and elegant space producing high quality and wholesome dishes to satisfy both traditional and adventurous tastes. Located on the bustling Upper Street, The Fig Tree specialises in traditional and modern Mediterranean dining, with an extensive menu including tapas dishes and a delicious pizza and pasta selection. It’s clear the talented team at The Fig Tree have an affinity for creating superlative culinary dishes.
We recommend selecting a few entree items to share – perhaps the funghi ripieni, mushrooms stuffed with peppers, onion, garlic and breadcrumbs, antipasti prosciutto, and the delectable gamberoni piccanti, king prawns with garlic, tomato, chilli and fennel set over toasted ciabatta. Follow those up with lubino, a pan fried fillet of sea bass served with lemon butter sauce, baked cherry tomatoes and roasted new potatoes. Last, The Fig Tree’s homemade tiramisu served with mascarpone will melt in your mouth. Mediterranean food comes from a place of love and inspiration, and The Fig Tree in London emulates this perfectly. Book now to sample this Islington favourite!
Clean environment, good customer service , lovely staff and food was delicious. would definately recommend. I will also visit again as the experience was pleasant. Went with a few friends and everyone really enjoyed their food
Used the 2 courses and a drink for two groupon voucher. Throughly presentable restaurant, friendly staff and the food tasted absolutely delicious. Definitely a restaurant I would go to again.
Had a lovely dinner with my daughter. The menu offered a good choice and was delicious. The male food server made us feel welcome and confortable.
Lovely restaurant. Great atmosphere. Excellent staff - helpful and attentive but not over attentive. Food was good but not special. Next time will try the pizzas.
Restaurant and service was okay. Food was ok. But over priced for what we got. Stuffed mushrooms only got 4,m which costs less than a pound to make and mixed burgers entree was 1 small burger. Dunno what's mixed about that? Steak was advertised as fillet but more like normal steak that had been pulverised to it was tender. By 7pm on a Thursday we were still the only people eating there. For the £28 pounds paid I would have got a better deal at home.
Great customer service friendly staff. The food was lovely didn't have to wait long. Nice and comfortable surroundings. Overall we had a lovely evening would definitely recommend.
The food took ages to arrive although there were only 2 tables to serve God knows what would happen if the restaurant was full The food was bland not a great experience never again
Pretty good food but very poor service. Good value for money but one meal came ages after the other two and my order was also wrong.
Incorrect starter provided, however this was replaced with the starter ordered fairly swiftly. Children's main arrived and found to be under-cooked (burger) which was returned, replacement offered but declined - overall disappointed.
