If you know your tapas Navarros is the place to go. It's menu and quality of dishes are second to none. I have lost count of the number of times I have enjoyed a meal at Navarro's and will certainly keep going back. The wine list is great and the atmosphere is busy and lively. We've never had problems with the service and have found the staff to be friendly and approachable. Authentic Spanish dining. Brilliant!

There is nowhere on Upper Street where I would rather dine. Isarn offers a great menu with superb quality food, time and time again. The service is excellent and the restaurant provides a vibrant and pleasant environment for an all round enjoyable dining experience. Isarn is very good value for money although the wine list is pricey. Have been there several times and not once has it disappointed.

I love Suruchi! The food is amazing - they have all the regular dishes and an impressive array of house specialities which are inventive and tasty. I can't recommend the quality of the food enough. There is a terraced area at the back of the restaurant and they have made a real effort to make it special - lots of plants and candles. Service is very good. Suruchi also provides an excellent take away service but I would definitely recommend making the journey (with a pre / post dinner drink in the lovely pub next door).

What a great restaurant! After wandering around Crouch End looking for a nice restaurant on Friday night we tried Florians. We were given a great table and were spoilt for choice with the menu. Dishes were varied and inventive with inspired combinations(e.g. chestnut papardelle with wild boar sauce) Excellent wine, good service, vibrant atmosphere and really really good food. Not cheap but you certainly get what you pay for. We will definitely be going back!

Having read the glowing reviews about this restaurant we tried it out and I would have to say that I found it to be a reasonable restaurant but certainly not an impressive dining experience. The food, service and atmosphere were all fine but nothing more. When we asked for black pepper (we had to ask for it!) we were brought a bowl of powdered pepper with a teaspoon in it - I couldn't believe they didn't have a pepper mill! The menu was standard and good value for money but certainly not the best Italian food to be found in London.
