Went there for a mid-week lunch and was delighted to have done so. My wife and I agreed (unusual!) that the restaurant has a really good ambiance. To start I had the Smoked eel sandwich, which was enjoyable. Better still was the Octopus, fennel &...More

Quo Vadis is a venerable establishment, but transformed under new ownership several years ago. The old, leaded windows belie the modern interior, which has been tastefully refurbished and gives the different rooms a cosy, yet not congested feel. I wouldn't want to describe the style...More

We decided to visit Quo Vadis after being impressed with the very ingredient-centric approach taken by chef Jeremy Lee on Great British Menu. Whilst there is a small (4 seats) bar area, we chose to have a quick pint beforehand in the nearby pub. The...More

Great staff and fantastic atmosphere. Love the Super Sonic and Eel sandwich. I would recommend for a nice dinner or just pre-drinks.

Walk in early lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. Lunch meeting with colleagues at Dean Street and we opt for Quo Vadis for lunch. There are many restaurants in Dean Street but this is one of the few fine-dining ones in close proximity Good food

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,

Quo Vadis is one of London’s most iconic restaurants, with its instantly recognisable facade and fascinating heritage. The “Grande Dame of Dean Street” has been around since 1926 and continues to be a Soho institution, beloved by local residents, foodies, regulars and tourists alike. Restaurateur and food connoisseur brothers Sam & Eddie Hart took on the restaurant in 2008, and in 2012 the inimitable Jeremy Lee came on board as Chef Patron. Jeremy along with General Manager Andy Smyth, runs the building with charisma and charm. The menu at Quo Vadis changes change daily according to the produce offered to Jeremy by his enviable list of suppliers, many of whom Jeremy has built up very close relationships with over the years. Seasonality and sourcing is of paramount importance to Jeremy and his kitchen. Diners come to Quo Vadis to enjoy an eclectic array of dishes from the a la carte menu, which also features a popular Theatre Set menu that is available all day. The succinct and reasonably priced wine list has been put together by Sam Hart and wonderfully compliments all aspects of the menu. Sam does not rely on names or reputations but chooses wines on whether he thinks the customers will enjoy drinking them. He likes to blind taste and tries to select wines that have a real sense of terroir and place and from those, where possible, he picks organic and biodynamic wines.
