this is probably the worst review I've ever read of a restaurant...

  1. Oh dear, but at least he had fun writing that utter stinker! My friend sometimes accompanies Matthew Norman when he does his reviews - ! bet she was glad she wasn't his guest that week!

    I wonder how long Kettners will last in its new incarnation?

      It just goes to show how utterly clueless and/or barmy some people are. Ploughing such an obviously large amount of money into a project such as this, and getting such a shameful review. I'd love to see the look on the managers / owner's face when they read that. Mind you, there are lot of these type of places on Ramsay's kitchen nightmares...

      Went to Kettner's one year for a work xmas lunch. It was fairy revolting then, too...

        The reviews have been universally bad - I've read three or four now. They all seem to say that Kettner's was fine as it was, so why much about with it, especially if the changes are for the worse. Can't argue with that really.

        Kettner's did used to be a great place - ridiculously cheap eats in a uniquely stylish place. The fact that it was a little bit faded and louche only added to the charm.
