When lawyer turned food blogger turned restaurateur opened Hedone in 2011 it became one of the most talked about restaurants of the following year. But Swede Mikael Jonsson had trained as a chef before entering the legal profession, so his decision to change career had been in the making for some time.

At Hedone the menu changes on a daily basis, and Jonssonís mission is to source the freshest food possible. As such the available dishes are never published online as what is on offer for dinner that day wonít be decided till close to the time, and only tasting menus can be ordered. Dishes are kept simple, letting the ingredients do the talking.

Hedone is best for...

Experimental Food
Lawyer turned food blogger and later restaurateur Mikael Jonssonwowed critics with Hedone. A daily changing menu thatís never advertised online, his USP is to let ingredients do the talking, such as with the famous onion dish, with a quarter of the vegetable served with a barely-there slice of pear.

After so much hype and controversy about Hedone, I really wanted to try it. The friendly service (especially from the restaurant Manager) was excellent and set us off on a better footing, after the rather odd entrance and doorway, which made us feel like we were entering an odd backstreet establishment! The food was good and had some unusual flavours (puddings were the best aspect of the menu) but many dishes were rather unmemorable. The (in)famous onion dish did little to excite my taste buds I'm sorry to say... in summary, lovely interior and great service, decent food.

Went here with my wife and some friends and had a very pleasant evening.

We went for 4 courses and between us had a fair few of the meals from the menu. The menu changes a fair bit so mentioning meals is probably a bit pointless. The signature onion dish was met with indifference on our table, not sure why it's so popular. The dishes are easily Michelin standard, service ok, wine list good.
