Wild Honey

Wild tasting

Wild Honey
Located in Mayfair, Wild Honey is a single Michelin restaurant serving modern European cuisine, I've eaten at it's sister restaurant aka Arbutus a few weeks ago and found the cooking was not able to reach the 1 star Michelin level that I was expecting so I was hoping Wild Honey would provide something better as its positioned itself as a more premium offering compared to the more relaxing Arbutus.

Sicilian burrata, Williams' pears, candied, walnuts

We opted for the Autumn tasting menu and not a single dish on the night disappointed me, the Sicilian burrate with William's pears and olive oil was so simple but it offered so much freshness and taste sensation. Best dish on the night had to be the Lincolnshire smoked eel, the oily and meaty taste of the fish delivered a lovely rich flavour and married in nicely with the sweet spices and mango chutney which offset the bold taste. I was also a fan of the blackberry dessert, the soft fruity and sour notes came with different elements in the panna cotta, sorbet, granola and meringue.

Overall I really enjoyed the cooking at Wild Honey, everything was simply done yet it delivered plenty of fresh and delightful tastes. Service was also brilliant taking great care of us without being over the top. We visited on a Monday night and yet it was fully packed with buzzing atmosphere. Wild Honey offers fine cooking at a reasonable price and truly deserved its Michelin star.
