“Exceptional food and service”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

Knowing about the reputation of Simon Rogan's restaurant, L'Enclume in Cartmel and never having been close enough to go, my wife and I were in London the other week (to see Collaborators at the National) and booked for a late lunch at Simon's temporary London venture, Roganic, just off Marylebone High Street. Having seen how well Mr Rogan did in The Great British Menu, we were hoping our lunch would be memorable - and it certainly was. We booked for the set lunch of 3 courses and, after a very warm welcome, we sat at a table by the window and agreed that each course would be a 'surprise.' Every one was a very happy surprise indeed, from the amuse bouches to open through to the poached pear, sweet cheese and hyssop to finish. There were 6 courses all told (we think!), every one a delight and all testament to a kitchen knowing exactly what it was doing. We loved every minute of our 2 hours at Roganic - and all for around £100 including a bottle of wine and coffee. Very highly recommended - while it is still there.

“10 courses of exquisite food”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

We visited on a Saturday night when the only menu on offer is the 10 course tasting menu. Each plate was absolutely gorgeous, all of them unusual and beautiful to look at. The wine matching worked brilliantly. The service was top notch, friendly and attentive but not over the top. The restaurant was small but not cramped - all in all a fabulous restaurant but this is a 2 year pop up - so get in while you can!

“Wow”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

This place completely blew me away. The food was very inventive, but the flavour combinations all worked extremely well. One of my two top meals in London on this trip (the other being Joel Robuchon).

We went for the 6 course lunch menu, which was about right.

Service was both competent and friendly.

At GBP 55 it was a bargain. I would go back in a heartbeat.

“Truley excellent! Highly recommended”
Reviewed 8 June 2012 via mobile

Went to roganic for lunch and had the 6 course tasting menu.
We had a bit of a blow out week and went to Dinner the next day, but roganic blew it out the water!
Each course was fantastic and full of interesting tastes
The staff were fabulous and really enthusiastic about the food they served which added to the experience
It is only here for another year go now!
