We've thought carefully about how to make the best use of our space, as well as ensure that everyone that comes to see us has a good time.
We always have the needs of our guests in mind whilst running a small restaurant that is limited in capacity by the fact it is a listed building.
When you book to eat at Rita's, please do so in the knowledge all our choices have been made based on our experience and knowledge of our business.
We believe hospitality is an exchange, not a transaction, it is served in abundance here, as long as it is reciprocated.
We are able to accept online bookings for up to to five guests.
Tables for 1 are allocated for 1hr 15 mins
Tables for 2-3 are allocated for 1hr 45 mins
Tables for 4+ are allocated for 2hrs
We cannot seat groups of 6+ in the restaurant, nor split groups across multiple tables.
We've tried this before and sadly some larger groups have shown a lack of consideration to their fellow diners and our staff.
Please call us on +447502292453 if you have a query about a reservation that cannot be booked online
but please note this phone may not be answered in service.
We have a mix of high table and low dining seating. High tables have backed stools and with exception of the window seat, diners are seated facing inwards towards each other so conversation can flow freely. The window seat is the best for people-watching!
Please get in touch if you have particular seating requirements as things can change in the flow of service.
Wheelchair access is limited due to the listed building but we always do our best to accommodate.
Young children are welcome for bookings made before 9pm, a booster seat is available but we do not have a baby change facility currently.
From time to time we have availability that does not show via Resy.
In particular, earlier and later tables, perfect for pre and post theatre.
The restaurant is located a short walk from many of Central London's most loved play houses.
Some tables, including outside front seating, are held for walk-ins.
Please get in touch if you do not see availability that suits, stop by for a walk in table or use the Resy App to join the virtual wait list.
Our cancellation policy is £15 per guest in the case of late cancellation (24 Hours) or no-show.
Please plan ahead and cancel your booking if you no longer need it.
Dinner: Tuesday -Saturday 17:00-00:00 (kitchen closes 22:30)
