When I walk in there's a mesmerising display of liquid chocolate being stirred at the counter, there's cacao beans scattered around, they're playing Bob Dylan, and you can get chocolate cream on your hot chocolate. There are limited seats, or maybe they're just incredibly full, but even so this hot chocolate is worth standing at the bar for.


Stopped by with a friend for an ice coffee and it was lovely. Stuff was very helpful and atmosphere is very relaxing.

I was very disappointed in my Saturday brunch at Rabot 1745. The decor and atmosphere were lovely, but the food was decidedly sub-par. 

First of all, they had run out of their signature dish - the pancakes. As pancakes are made from a simple combination of ingredients you would think they could whip something up. There was also no apology from the waitress. 

I then ordered the avocado and poached egg on sourdough, which was beautifully presented. Sadly that's where the positives end. The egg was hard, and the whole dish cold. I dined with two others, and whilst one was satisfied (her poached eggs were nicely cooked) the other was unhappy with their choice. 

The service was lackluster; no one asked about our meals whilst we were eating them - leaving no subtle opportunity to complain without seeking someone out. In all, I'd be reluctant to return.

Have been here 3 times now. Food is excellent - all dishes have a chocolate 'twist' and are cooked to perfection. Cocktails are great too. Really well thought out and very tasty. Inside tables give more atmosphere - the terrace overlooks the market which is noisy during the day and closed at night - feels a bit like you are in a warehouse with the occasional pigeon coming past too. Ask for a table inside and you won't be disappointed. Can't wait to go again!

I splashed out and had the tuna, a very good decision as it was just divine. A very relaxing atmosphere, and welcoming staff who are more than happy to go through the unique cacao accompanied menu. It's the Ideal location if you lose track of time, as London Bridge station is just round the corner.

Everything on the menu looked delicious and the dishes I chose certainly turned out to be. Also has an extensive rum menu which was appreciated. Good service.

This was a wonderful place to spend an evening sampling some unusual dishes. I mean "Choc au Vin", chocolate mash. How was that supposed to work? Fantastically well as it turned out. A great atmosphere, excellent service. Definitely one to visit if you are in the area.


Fantastic restaurant! Wide selection of great food and Rum. Love how chocolate/cacao is incorporated quite well in most dishes. Great addition to the dishes. The ambience is perfect for good evening dinner.
