10 Cases reviews

By Josh C.

10 Cases on Endell Street is a gem of a restaurant slash wine bar. I went their for a friends party, he hired the downstairs room, which is basically a wine cellar, the food was excellent, the service was very good (i think we were looked after by the owner who was incredibly knowledgable about the wine we were drinking). All in all its a great little place. If you are fed up with the chained restaurant around the Covent Garden area you need to drop into 10 Cases.

I was left a little disappointed with the lunch offering and service at 10 cases, the food itself was a little tasteless and the service was extremely slow. I know that they were busy but it is all about first impressions and mine will not be seeing me return!

10 cases is a small, well designed venue, where you eat some lovely food surrounded by hundreds of bottles of wine The waiter was telling me that they will be selling wine online so I may take them up as the choice was stunning and so varied. I will be looking at booking the whole place out as it would be lovely for a small party and the wife has a big day coming up, a very nice little venue

By Terry J.

10 cases is a beautiful little bistro, they have small tables to sit down on with racks of wine all over the walls. I had a mackerel salad which was extremely nice and shared a bottle of wine with the wife, being a lover of wine you are spoilt for choice. I do think you should take bookings as it gets very busy and it would be shame to turn up to find your full

10 Cases was where we ended up on the weekend This was a nice surprise, the selection was spot on, not too much but a selected amount of quality meals. There was a wonderful selection of wine to choose from and a great service from their team. Thank you very much

10 cases may be pricey but the food is goooood. My husband and I both had the crab linguini even though we’re not usually fans of fish it was really tasty, shall hope to go again soon.

Delicious! Dropped in by chance on Friday afternoon, seeking shelter from the rain and from my increasing hunger, for a late lunch with some friends visiting from Australia. The waiter was extremely helpful - helping us rearrange tables, as well as pointing us towards some very acceptable wine. The wine seems to be a particular focus for the owners, I think the waiter told us that they only bought 10 cases of any particular wine, ensuring a fairly frequent turnover of drinks. The food was a real winner, I had a leg of lamb steak, which intrigued my cook companion, while oysters and duck were also enjoyed. The one slight criticism I think we had was that the snails - brought before the meal - were somewhat flavourless. Only a small wrinkle, though, and I'd definitely recommend this spot to anyone who might be looking. We managed to work our way through a few bottles of wine before braving once more the damp streets of Covent Garden but I look forward to my next visit with much enthusiasm.

I visited 10 Cases with my family for a birthday and we had the downstairs room for our meal. The selection of food was great and we had a decent amount of meals to choose from. Not too much choice where it was hard to choose. I had the crispy pork belly and the pork was cooked perfectly. The chef is outstanding and the food is brilliant.

London restaurants do sometimes veer towards the pretentious, but 10 Cases strips it right back to a simple premise that's executed incredibly well.

The Venue
10 Cases is a cute little bistro in Covent Garden. The bold black front is eye-catching and the swirling lettering of the signage adds to its appeal. The large front windows open out in the summer months for that alfresco dining appeal and inside the décor is simple, with a white and cream colour scheme punctuated by dark wooden tables and black leather chairs. A simple bar is something of a centrepiece to the room, and the daily-changing menu is chalked up on a large blackboard each day. That’s about all, folks. Oh, except for a downstairs private dining room if you want to add a fancy edge to eating here.

The Atmosphere
Being located in the heart of tourist town means that 10 Cases does attract its fair share of out of towners. However, as a new and rather trendy central London restaurant opening, it’s also pulled in a fair few foodies looking for the city’s next big thing. The staff are incredibly welcoming to everyone, regardless from whence they came, and it’s clear to see that they want word to spread – and spreading it certainly is.

The Food
The premise of the modern European menu is simple: it changes every day to three different starters (£5-£7), three mains (£12-£15), three sides (free!) and three desserts (£4-£6).

To start the steak tartar is as good as at any of the capital's higher-end restaurants, with wonderfully fresh and perfectly seasoned beef topped with a rich egg yolk. Surprisingly light on the stomach, it’s well portioned so you don’t feel too bulked down before your main course.

For mains, the salmon steaks are a delight. Perfectly cooked so the fish flakes easily at the touch of the fork, the salmon’s natural saltiness is aided by some judicious seasoning. Served with crisp sautéed potatoes, deliciously fresh and well-wilted spinach and a simple green salad, it’s an excellent dish that’s light on the stomach but packed with flavour. Alternatively, the rolled lamb shoulder is incredibly tender with a delicate sweetness that's also been cleverly matched to their three set side dishes. It’s clear that they put a lot of thought into the combinations to keep it as simple as possible without sacrificing on quality.

For dessert, the apple tart is very well balanced with a soft, perfectly-cooked pastry and a not-too-sweet apple filling that lets the natural sweetness of the apple to shine through without becoming too sickly.

The Drink
Wondering why the name of this restaurant is 10 Cases? Well, as with the menu proper, they put their emphasis on easy selection of wine too, with a choice of 10 reds and 10 whites, and 10 cases of each. When it runs out, it runs out, and they replace it with something new. And every single bottle is also available by the glass, which is excellent as you can sample more expensive bottles without forking out a small fortune. The menu itself is hand written and then photocopied and the cheapest glass is under a fiver with the most expensive coming in at closer to £10.

The Last Word
With so many fancy restaurants in the capital going one step too far, it’s good to see one that has stripped it back to basics to simply offer excellent quality and value for money.
