The food was very good although the menu was a bit boring. The restaurant was half empty on a Friday night which was a bit worrying but the two waiters served us were good and attentive. With such good food we wondered why the restaurant was so empty on a Friday night....

A trendy pop-up venture from one of the UK’s most celebrated prodigies, Luke Thomas, Retro Feasts offers a quirky taste of childhood. Expect reinventions of forgotten recipes, served in a vibrant Mayfair setting.

Compiled by the unique culinary partnership of Luke Thomas and Mark Fuller, the Retro Feasts menu is filled with signature twists on bygone recipes. Enjoy Retro Feast restaurant favourites like de-constructed pea and ham with a runny-yolk egg, tuna salad made with meaty tuna steak, or comforting potato dumplings.

The memorabilia-emblazoned dining room at Retro Feasts in London features vintage advertising collages, and a quirky tuck shop-style counter offering views onto the kitchen. Reinventions of old school snacks include juicy skewered pineapple with blue cheese bon bons, or meaty crab on toast.

Described as a ‘rare talent in the kitchen’ by the formidable restaurant critic Jay Rayner, Luke Thomas brings some of the restaurant scene’s most talked-about innovation to Retro Feasts in Mayfair. Piccadilly Circus Tube Station is a 7-minute walk away.

    Luke Thomas, you should be ashamed of yourself. He is an extremely talented chef and this endeavour, in our opinion, did him absolutely no favours. If this was a modern take on retro, bring back the originals. It was undoubtedly the worst meal we have had in London in years. Every dish chosen by our party of four was pre-plated and totally unimaginative. Retro? no... a throwback to an england thankfully long gone, maybe.The service was slow and trying to gain staff members' attention was a game in itself. The dining experience(!!) was marred by crazily high decibel rowdy non-dining boozers at surrounding tables. Luke, you can do a whole lot better than this! I know, because I was privileged to have enjoyed aspectacularly memorable dinner cooked by you at a friend's house a few months' ago. Maybe that's why you did not come up to say hello when I asked to see you...

    Food very average when it finally arrived. Very slow service considering the restaurant was only a quarter full. Very disappointing.

    This was arguably one of the worst meals I have ever had in London. Since when was serving a full turkey dinner, followed by christmas pudding "retro"? even if it is christmas time....The first round of drinks were wrong, the main course was wrong, our dessert choice was not possible as apparently the chef "wasn't happy with it", and they also ran out of the Meantime beer we were drinking, offering only Heineken or Sol as an alternative - isn't this supposed to be "retro"?
    I would not be going back and would be embarrassed to recommend this place - thankfully, it's only a pop-up so soon it will be gone....

    Great tasting set menu. Not super busy, which surprised me but meant I could chat easily with my friends I was dining with. Nice menu and great service. All in all a really good dining experience. Would highly recommend for a catch up with girlfriends.

    I booked this for myself and 5 friends to catch up before Christmas. The deal on BookaTable was great £30 for 3 courses plus a cocktail. All seemed well when we arrived with the waiter confirming we were on the Special deal. That's where it then went sadly wrong... Have to say the food was amazing but the service was soooooo slow - it took 45 minutes to take our order and then another 45 to serve a pate starter! And how disappointing when we got the bill to find that we had been charged for each course and our cocktails adding nearly £80 to our bill!! The waiter did apologise for the mistake but I wonder how many unfortunates have paid without checking. I hope the chefs do "pop up" again but you need to recruit new waiting staff!

    Cocktail appeared to have very little alcohol in it. Food disappointing: avocado and prawns had hardly any avocado, traditional turkey was merely a rather tasteless turkey roll on a bed of mashed potato (with no roast potato), dessert looked as if prepared long ago.

    For a Friday night in is a real shame that this place isn't kicking. It has all the right ingredients to work but just not enough foot fall. We had a lovely evening, simple food that tastes good. Cocktails that were fun, jjust missing an atmosphere and buzz. I am sure big parties of people would get things going. Come on retro feasts get some marketing going.
