The hollandaise eggs sat nicely atop a big mound of tasty pulled steak and crispy buttered bread – a very gourmet breakfast version of a philly steak indeed, and a lot of food for £9. (…) The dishes we had were very good, if not perfect, and the eggs and the duck confit show lots of skill and good produce on display…

There’s nothing to match Duck and Waffle for a quality breakfast with a stunning view to match. I can’t wait to go back – after all, there’s still lunch and dinner to look forward to…

It’s rich and hearty fare, very much of its time and place in that the dishes are good for autumn and this sort of food — big flavors, small portions — is currently popular in London. Duck & Waffle holds its own against its earthbound rivals…

The restaurant has been designed for people who want to be seen in this kind of place, and they deserve one another. But I’ve had more inspiring food – character, taste – from a bag of nuts…

I ordered a sazerac, which was served with a blowtorch. Resident mixologist Richard then whipped out a block of charred wood and proceeded to set fire to it (…). He then flipped my glass onto the wood, filling it with smoke, before pouring in the cognac, rye, amaro and bitters. Truly excellent…

Some of it is original and fun, such as the fresh raw shards of scallop draped on chunks of apple with lime and truffle, served on a huge, pink, posh salt rectangle (the single gayest plate substitute I’ve seen this year, and I’ve seen a few) and the crispy bbq pigs’ ears in a brown paper bag…

The food at Duck & Waffle is not faultless, but the experience is; and there are plenty of enticing dishes I didn’t try (a whole roasted chicken beckons). On the way out, I ask the chef if he’s ready for the travails of the all-nighter. He says he can’t wait…

Best of all was a tiny burger of Herdwick mutton, with that funky meat-on-the-turn flavour you get from big-bollocked animals who have lived on a windblown hillside…

There’s a lovely, buzzy, let-your-hair-down atmosphere about Duck & Waffle, and the fact that it stays open late for Londoners like me and you who don’t wish to be sent to bed by the council at 11pm has made it a new addition to my little black book…

BBQ-Spiced Crispy Pig Ears showed a flair for presentation, with the thin, chewy strips of cartilage presented in a brown paper bag, like a clandestine takeaway of pork scratchings…

I tried at breakfast the duck and waffle itself: a fried duck egg on a confit duck, served with mustard maple syrup. This was a fairly odd combination, the sort of thing that might be suitable for breakfast after a heavy night on the town…

Duck & Waffle expertly walks a line between spectacularly glamorous and accessibly homely, and I defy anyone to spend an evening here and not have the time of your life. I intend to be a regular…
