Food was absolutely fantastic, however their practise of placing 6 hors d'oeuvres on your table that appear complimentary but actually add £100 to your bill leaves a sour taste.

I loved this place. The staff were lovely and their attention to detail made the evening. We had the Crickets and Zebra to start, and Crocodile and Alpaca for main. In hindsight, I wouldn't opt for the crickets, but even they were tasty enough. We...More

From getting the passcode to paying the bill we thoroughly enjoyed the unusual archipelago experience. We tried the full range of out-of-the-ordinary fodder and can reliably report it all to be well prepared and tasty. Service was friendly, attentive, well informed and reassuring.

This is somewhere you have to give it a try. Crocodile and Alpaca for me which hit the mark. Very good value and amazing setting.

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest
fashions, gadgets, and souvenirs. Fitzrovia is
conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite

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.
