The place was so cozy and friendly. The food was delicious. They will give you a password when you reserve. It looks you are going to a hidden place that only you can open the door. I would recommend it if you come to London.😊

This restaurant is really worth a visit. The food is great and the staff very friendly. We tried the crickets, crocodile and ostrich and all of the courses were really well made. The place is quite small so reservations are recommended.

Been to Archipelago twice now and on both occasions they have been sensational. On my first outing I had the zebra starter and alpaca main. The zebra is so good! Really didn't know what to expect but it has a unique flavour and texture. So...More

We went as a family and had the £15 lunch sharing deal. Overall it was great value for an unusual food experience. The food was tasty enough to stand on its own, ignoring the novelty value. The sharing platter contained crocodile fritters, pulled alpaca, Mexican...More

The food overpriced. The food quality disappointing. The portions truly pathetic. The experience left us feeling conned. Subsequently, the date ruined. The summary, avoid at all costs. There are so many better restaurants to eat at in London, this place ain’t one of them by...More

We visited on a Saturday night courtesy of a TimeOut voucher that, quite frankly, allowed us to enjoy a sublime meal for a fraction of the cost. Not only was the food extremely unique and far from anything I'd ever eaten in a restaurant, the...More

Visited on recommendation. Quiet Wednesday lunch time. Superb service and exotic and unusual tastes, beautifully presented. A real surprise and would definitely return.

Very eclectic setting, worth a visit just for the decor but that is not why you would go there. It's not all about eating exotic and unusual animals. There are vegetarian options and some more conventional meat dishes for the more squeamish. I had the...More

Nice furniture and atmosphere, definitely good for taking your date. Music is low, lights are dimmed, service is outstanding. Food was not worth the money though.

Description
If Archipelago were a film it would definitely be one of the Indiana Jones series. First, the menu features all manner of exotic beasties - locusts, zebra, crocodile and second the decor is an exotic mix of golden buddhas, dwarf palms and giant peacock feathers. The staff will talk you through each dish, but there's also chicken, fish, lamb and extensive vegetarian options. It's a great night out for the more adventurous - or if you happen to be having Ray Mears to stay.
