what the critics say

The Independent

Lisa Markwell - 7/10

Sunday, September 11, 2011 - My main course, spiced slow-braised lamb with rainbow chard and chickpeas, is a disappointment (too pappy a texture and unappealing in a barrel formation)...Claire's thrilled with monkfish, cauliflower, pistachio, mint and preserved lemon cous cous, declaring it one of the finest balances of flavours and textures she's eaten in years. A fantabulous cherry variety pack of clafoutis, cherry and chocolate rice pudding and cherry ice-cream is pretty and toothsome and just right for sharing. Joe's deserves to be for ladies who breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is delicious, pretty to look at and satisfying without heft.

This Is London

Fay Maschler - 3/5

Thursday, July 21, 2011 - A lack of cooking precision is more easily forgiven when the meal price is 15/17 pounds for two/three courses as can be enjoyed at lunchtime at Joe's. It is the meal that accounts for the three-star rating of this review. The winner was he who started with an incredibly subtle soup of early Cornish potatoes with cavolo nero and lemon oil, followed by char-grilled glistening sardines with panzanella salad and completed with apricot fool. Thai-style squid salad with buckwheat noodles woven in preceding pasta rags (aka maltagliati) served with wide ribbons of courgettes, chilli and lemon was not quite so diverting or well balanced but nevertheless, speaking as a lady, a good lunch.
