All Bar One
Euston Station, London
Reviewed by Erin Hussey
All Bar One, located in the bustling Euston station, is a tranquil hub that can take you away from the busy London life beyond its’ doors.
On arrival we were seated quickly by friendly staff, towards the back of the restaurant. Most of the seats were occupied by 5pm on a Thursday evening and it soon got busier at the bar where many people were just coming in for a drink, however this did not interrupt our dining.
We consulted the menus and when asked for our drink choices we decided to ask for recommendations on cocktails. The waiter enquired about our taste preferences ‘fruity’, ‘sweet’ etc and was quickly and confidently able to recommend the Royale Raspberry Mojito. The cocktails arrived beautifully presented and tasted delicious.
We were soon asked for our food order and similarly proceeded to ask for their recommendations on their previously highly recommended, tapas menu. We decided to order three dishes (priced at £15.00 for three) and the same waiter was able to recommend his personal favourites, the Tomato & Mozzarella Arancini Balls, and the Halloumi Skewers and let us decide on our final dish. We decided on the Chicken Satay Skewers.
The food arrived on separate trays and we were easily able to share all the dishes. They were all very impressive, all tasting very fresh and complimentary. The rest of the menu was similarly impressive and it was noticeable that they had a good proportion of vegetarian dishes available. Three dishes were perfectly sufficient for just two of us, which makes it brilliant value for money. However if there are more of you, you can purchase 5 dishes for £24.00 or 7 dishes for £33.00.
We were able to sit in the restaurant comfortably after we had finished our food, in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. The only disappointing part of the experience was when, just before we started leaving, a group of people stood by our table trying to secure it for themselves after we had left. Understandably it was a busy evening in London in the Christmas period and the staff did look apologetic when we were leaving.
Overall, the dining experience in All Bar One in Euston was a very pleasant one. The food was beautiful and the service was outstanding. For a well-known restaurant in a busy area of London we were very impressed by the friendliness and ambience. Try it for yourself, you will not be disappointed.
