Originally, I’d booked Margot London for it’s dachshund themed signage, but later for it’s close proximity to my hotel and upscale Italian menu.
The dachshunds even managed to provide a joyful touch to the apero.
A small piece of foccacia and a perfectly measured tablespoon of olive oil warranted a 1 GBP cover charge. This just felt like a cheap way to earn an extra buck. It wasn’t Italy after all and if it were, they’d leave you with a fun variety of bread basket.
My starter of scallops with chevril root puree was satisfying and delightful.
For the main, I opted for the crab stuffed ravioli which came with a few blistered tomatoes and saffron sauce. It was also very good and exactly the kind of dish where you’d have liked another piece of bread for saucy purposes.
Margot was a very nice ambiance and cuisine and I would return again to try more of the menu including the desserts that I’d seen photographed that afternoon at a sidewalk table. Be sure to book early as the place was packed.
