THE WATER HOUSE PROJECT

Why Join the Table?

Five Michelin-quality dishes in the chef's own home!

This isn't just another Pop-up, it's a Pop-in.

The ethos behind Gabriel Waterhouse's new venture is simplicity; less is more.

By day he chefs in some of London's best restaurants but by night welcomes diners into his modest Bethnal Green home for a more

House Rules: Shoes off at the door
Guests to be respectful of our home and neighbours

In a Nutshell

In 2015 Gabriel Waterhouse left the grand surrounds of Michelin-starred Galvin La Chapelle with the aim of making fine dining accessible. He bought a table from Ikea and began welcoming diners into his modest Bethnal Green home for a more informal culinary experience.

The Whole Hog

Since then The Water House Project has hosted thousands of hungry diners, been featured in TimeOut and Monocle magazine, and was awarded 'Top 5 London supper club' status by The Evening Standard. He has had to buy a second table.

This was now my third time at Water House Project. The food was delicious yet again, with great balances of interesting flavours.Gabriel introduced each course and talked about the ingredients - other than for these brief moments we chatted non-stop with other guests around us: an excellent evening of great food and excellent company. Thanks again!

A delicious and creative multi-course dinner in a homely environment. Gabriel and his brother Josh made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended

What a wonderful evening - the menu was outstanding and the overall ambience and experience was just amazing. Such a great crowd of guests as well, will definitely be coming again!

This was a phenomenal meal. Gabriel is clearly a very talented chef and I expect big things to come from him in the future. His technique is definitely more fine dining than I had expected -- from the plating to the presentation and dishware, it was all spot on. His combination of flavors is also complex and unexpected. I thought this was a huge value for the price and I am so glad to have done it. Highly recommended.

A great evening with 7 courses - all delicious. Had great fun meeting new people.

We really enjoyed our evening at Gabriel's - the food is extraordinary, creative and plentiful! The house is cosy and Gabriel and his brother were great hosts.

Even better the second time than the first!

A brilliant evening of fantastic food and excellent company. Thanks very much to Gabs and Josh, who were brilliant hosts.

Such a wonderful evening - delicious food + fabulous company!

An excellent evening - the food was exquisite with loads of attention paid to texture and presentation as well as flavour. I will certainly be going back.

Friendliness, quality, unusual, taste sensation

Very good food beautifully presented. All around a great evening. My compliments to the chef (and his brother).

We thought it was brilliant - amazing food and a great evening.

a lovely evening with really excellent food. I would recommend definitely!

Super fun night and left so full of delicious food and laughs!

I can not fault the Waterhouse Project. The Gabriel's passion for food is superseded only by the exceptional taste of what he creates! Get yourself a ticket to the next table!

It was a lovely evening with lovely food and lovely company. The Water House Project with creative haute cuisine and efficient service makes it one of the best supper clubs out there. Gabriel and his brother Josh are very gracious hosts who make you feel very welcome, too.

Gabriel is a talented chef, and these events are always of a high standard.

It's the best experience ever. Nightly recommend!

It was an exquisite experience! I absolutely loved it! Gabriel is a phenomenal cook but he does it with such grace and ease. Every dish was well thought out and perfectly executed. The sophistication of flavor combination and presentation is definitely Michelin caliber, but his humble attitude makes his food very approachable. His brother, Josh, did an amazing job hosting and serving the guests. We had a full 5-course meal plus a cheese course plus coffee/tea and chocolate truffles! We also had the company of a group of fun loving foodies. It was such a great night! I highly recommend The Waterhouse Project!

A really rather special evening - the food was fabulous we enjoyed every course (there are many!). A great evening and a little different which is refreshing. I would highly recommend.

Amazing evening. Food and company..

Everything was absolutely perfect. Not only was it the best meal I've had in London, every single element of the evening was so considered and beautiful and yet so calm and inviting. They also did a brilliant job of vegetarian options for my friend. Couldn't fault it.

Second time visiting and it was just as amazing as the first. I honestly haven't had food this good anywhere else in London, thank you!

Excellent food and set up. Great experience

The best food we have eaten in a long time! So much fun too, we will definitely be back very soon.

Absolutely amazing food, great host and excellent value for money

This was a truly fantastic experience. Right off the bat we were warmly greeted in Gabriel's flat with a chilled glass of champagne. Gabriel is very hospitable and easy to drop into conversation with. The guests began trickling in and everyone just clicked. We knew we were in for a great night. It certainly turned out to be. The food was incredible. The risotto was amazing. He even prepared a tomato essence two days prior which was unbelievable. The seafood lasagna was also delicious as well as the guinea fowl. Basically, everything was awesome. Definitely the highlight of London bar none.

Incredible food in a perfect setting. Thank you for such an amazing evening!

Had a fantastic evening and would highly recommend The Water House Project. The food was incredible!

Another fabulous evening in Bethnal Green. Incredible food, highly recommended.

Simply an amazing evening! The food was great, Gabe and his brother are perfect hosts, and it was a pleasure (and very fun) to chat with the other guests. Thanks so much for a lovely evening.

Enjoyed the evening, the food was great!

Warm& friendly welcome, comfortable& clean ambience, delicious food! Many thanks to our chef, Gabriel.

Loved it. The food was amazing. Some of the best I've had in london. Congrats Gabriel!

Awesome on both occasions I've been, really enjoy the food focus. Favorite grub club

Exceeded all expectations.

Absolutely fantastic. Loved the company, the conversation, the setting, the service, and the food. Oh... the food. One of my best dining experiences in or out of a restaurant. My only regret, their next few dinners are already sold out. I was ready to book another the day after! That pleased.

Some of the best food we have had in london by an extremely humble host. Met some really fun people in a relaxed setting. Overall a fantastic way to spend a special evening, 110% recommended

I could not fault any part of the evening. It was really lovely, a group of people keen to eat outstanding food. Several guests were returnees, which speaks oceans. The five courses were served elegantly on beautiful plates, hand made I believe. Gabriel prepared beautiful, subtle dishes and his descriptions before we ate each course prepared the way for delicious mouthfuls. I would recommend this venue highly and congratulate the GrubClub on their inspired idea. meeting a group of happy unknowns, all of us

I came on my own, and had an amazing evening. Food was brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed the people.

A wonderful evening, full of great food and fun company. We were made to feel completely at ease by Gabriel and Josh, enabling us to chat with the other guests. Every course was superb, in taste and presentation. We'll definitely be back!

6 of us enjoyed a memorable evening yesterday, The scallop and crab lasagne was a thing of beauty, and is one of the best seafood dishes I have had anywhere in the world. Gabriel and his brother cooked and served 6 courses with the minimum of fuss. I'm not sure how he achieves the extraordinary level of cuisine in a home kitchen; I would recommend everyone who loves food to go and sample this extraordinary talent.

Amazingly delicious dishes, lovely company- a terrific evening overall!

Really amazing, surprising food

Superb food and beautiful crockery! Delicious evening.

This was a great night, the food was delicious, the setting was warm friendly and relaxed. i want more like this. and i will be booking another the food was so much more tasty than s sounds and really tasty cheese too. One to follow.

Really lovely food on our second time around and the evening confirmed how good a chef and host Gabriel is. Nice to see Josh again too. We'll definitely be back.

amazing as always .

It seemed impossible that the evening could live up to expectations having read the preceding 100+ reviews. Suffice it to say that it greatly exceeded them on many levels. An exceptional London experience.

One of the best dinners I've ever had.

Fantastic!

A fantastic evening all round. Great setting and superb food, with friendly and informative service. A real treat!

This guy does not know just how good he is . Outstanding again

I had a great time at The Water House Project. The food was unbelievably good. I The presentation was beyond beautiful, from ambience, to the crockery and cutlery. everything was perfect. I had a wonderful time and I look forward to my next time here.

Gabriel (ably assisted by his brother) were great hosts, the food was really lovely and the menu very well thought through. Definitely recommended and will look to go again ourselves.

As always Gabs hosted a great evening.

Gabriel & Josh were great hosts the food was fantastic,clever, beautifully presented & the incredible mix of tastes. we would definitely go again. We eat out a lot & this was the best food we have had in ages. Great concept, thank you for a fab night! Julia

Fantastic! This was my second time so high hopes from my first one and it definitely lived up to expectations! One of the best dining experiences in London. Couldn't fault any part of the night. Lovely and relaxed atmosphere and sensational food!

Absolutely amazing food and very relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend it to anyone.

Delicious! Original. Creative. Wonderful in every respect! Thank you Gabriel and Samuel!

Best supper club I've been to. Gabriel and his brother were the perfect hosts and the food was seasonal, beautifully presented and very well explained with each course. Would highly recommend.

My friends and I had a wonderfully enjoyable evening at the Waterhouse Project. Gabriel is a passionate chef and this came over when he described each dish before we commenced each course. The food was heavenly delicious and the portion sizes were perfect . Great atmosphere and delightful hosts. Certainly recommend this supper club to all my friends.

AMAZING night! The 5 courses were extraordinary and the format of the dinner was great, very intimate. Gabriel and his brother Josh were very nice as well, we spent a wonderful time..! Want to go back there!!!

The best of the best. Couldn't recommend more highly.

Top quality ingredients thoughtfully put together and a friendly, down to earth atmosphere. Definitely the best dining experience I've had in London. I'll be back!

What an amazing evening. Incredible food. Gabriel is such a brilliant chef and host, couldn't have asked for a better evening.

Such a lovely evening! I bought tickets to this for my brothers birthday and we both had a fantastic time. The food is incredible and the hosts and atmosphere are just brilliant. I can't recommend it enough, if you're lucky enough to go you will not be disappointed

Superbly delicious food as always. A really special evening in a charming and relaxed atmosphere. A privellege to have experienced such delights. Coming back soon!!!

A great experience. A dinner is firstly about food, which was absolutely delicious, but it is also about sharing this moment with others; and Gabriel seems to have the talent of bringing people together around the table, in order to live this experience in the nicest environment ever. I attended the dinner with two friends, we had an amazing time together as well as with the other guests sharing the table. I also liked being able to observe the chef preparing his exquisite dishes, which were served with the help of his brother Samuel, who was very lovely.

Thank you for a wonderful evening! The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented in a warm and welcoming setting. A lovely opportunity to meet new people and we would love to visit again. Go hungry - there's a LOT of food!

Stunning food, intelligently sourced, and meticulously and loving prepared. Amazing atmosphere - casual, friendly, authentic. Highly, highly recommended. My best dining experience in a long time.

My second time and a truly amazing experience... Food is exceptional and there's such an amazing chilled and relaxing vibe for the evening! One of the best meals you can have in london!

Would highly recommend this!! The food was exquisite and Gabriel and his brother josh were both excellent hosts!! A must do!

What a lovely evening! Food was absolutely superb, beautifully presented and the ambience was great. Thank you Gabriel and Josh for being such welcoming hosts. I really enjoyed myself and would happily recommend :)

Gabriel and Josh put on a fantastic evening. Each dish was thoughtfully and creatively prepared and served. Every detail of the meal was carefully planned. The atmosphere around the table was great.

All the courses were seasonal and delicious. We are waiting for the menu to change to go back. Extremely positive experience and nice people to share a good glass of wine.

Gabriel and Samuel were very welcoming hosts and as for the food - out of this world.

Amazing food, great group of diners and really friendly and engaging chefs. What more could you want from a Friday night dinner?!

Amazing food, great group of diners and really friendly and engaging chefs. What more could you want from a Friday night dinner?!

Absolutely loved it! great atmosphere, amazing food (and also very well presented and explained by Chef Gabriel!) - will definitively go back!

What a great host , lovely food will definitely be returning

Great host, great food, great group of people.. And it's BYO.. Nothing wrong at all..

What a wonderful night.. The food was delicious and made all the more special by the quirky environment. Fantastic idea..Bravo Grub Club!

The food was excellent and overall it was a great evening.

Food was so amazing! The combination of flavours all worked amazingly together! Great Chef!

An absolutely delightful experience made all the better with detailed descriptions of each course as they are being served. I would definitely recommended to others after that little something different. Thank you Gabriel, Sid & Thomas!

The whole evening was fab from start to finish. Thank you very much.

Amazing food!

Lovely casual atmosphere, the hosts were attentive and well prepared to host the 15 guests and I couldn't fault a thing. The food was of top quality and I would go there again.

Absolutely wonderful evening - could not find a fault with anything. Top chef who is going to go all the way to the top. Janette from Ruislip

The food was fabulous. Really exceeded expectations. Gracious host and fun fellow dinner guests!

10/10 - excellent food, concept and company!

Simply...perfection and top-notch!

Wonderful evening and fabulous food from Gabriel. Stand out dish was the dessert but all of it was delicious and beautifully presented. Excellent service from Samuel too. Would heartily recommend!

Wonderful hosts providing Michelin star dishes in a chic but relaxed setting. Definitely coming back.

This was our first time using grub club and my husband and I were blown away by what a fantastic time we had thanks to The Water House Project. Gabriel and his brother are geniuses. The food was absolutely outstanding, we couldn't fault one thing - it was superb - the atmosphere so welcoming and we met some lovely people. We were so impressed by the standard of ingredients, the precision in the cooking, the thought and detail - each of the 5 courses was incredible. Thank you.

Hello. The food was really good. the presentation too. pleasant atmosphere. really nice to see the chef cooking almost in front of us. I however gave only 4 stars because we never get any petit four or coffee as it says on the menu. we waited and waited but it never came and was never proposed... just too bad

Superb five course meal ! Each course had so many elements that came together in harmony. The highest food quality and detailed presentation made for an unforgettable meal

Gorgeously presented food with delicious, unique tastes and combinations. Absolutely supreme dinner and I have nothing to add, it was perfect. Most guests were seduced by the glorious strawberry and basil dessert, but for me, the springy bright green watercress soup was divine! Would come back again and again!

Absolutely wonderful evening! Host was delightfully welcoming, accommodating (gave equally tasty options for a pescatarian and a gluten intolerant diner) and food was 'off the chart' amazing ...really was a sensational dining experience. Thank you again Gabe... will definitely be booking again.

What an amazing experience. Food was exceptional found it hard to pick my favourite course, thanks to Gabriel's culinary skills. Will be returning to enjoy more delights .

In a word: excellent. I could not think of a single thing the chef could have done differently to improve the experience. From the quality of the food to the presentation to the explanation of the dishes, the evening was superb.

Gabriel knocked it out the park. Incredible food, service and atmosphere. I would recommend to anyone willing to listen!

This was a lovely evening of truly first class food, in a very warm and relaxed environment. Gabriel and his brother made us feel very welcome. It would have been nice to have lingered a little longer over the yummy cheeseboard.

What a truly amazing evening! In summary: Food - 10/10, Ambience - 10/10, Host - 10/10. I will most certainly be returning!

Absolutely great food and atmosphere. Very recommended. Would definitely come back for another dinner

Too delicious for words!

Absolutely amazing! The food was exquisite, up there with the best I've had in London (still cannot believe it was all made in his apartment kitchen). No question that we will be back! Thanks Gabe

First time I've ever attended something like this. Totally exceeded my expectations, Gabe and his brother Samuel were both very welcoming, food was fantastic and was fortunately enough to share the experience with some really great strangers.

A truly wonderful experience, not to be missed. Michelin quality fabulous food served with flair in their lovely home. I shall be returning soon.

Lovely food (still don't believe this was prepared in an ordinary looking kitchen such was the high standard), lovely flat, and as a single dinner, was a really welcoming environment. Would definitely try to come back for more. Thank you!

Fantastic evening. Would definitely recommend to others. Gabes quality of food/service and general hosting skills are second to none. Can't wait to come back! 10/10.

I attended The Water House Project with a group of friends and we all had a wonderful time. The food was presented to the highest standard and tasted amazing, my favourite being the sea food course! Gabriel made a great host explaining each dish as we went through and created a lovely atmosphere! Can't wait to go back. Thanks Gabriel!

Incredible food and a great atmosphere. Gabriel made us feel at home from the minute we walked in the door.

What a lovely evening with unbelievable service and marvellous food

Five stars isn't enough, we had the most fantastic evening! Gabriel made us feel so at home and created the most delicious dishes - it is very hard to please my mum but honestly I've never heard her so happy! The company was great, lovely to meet people from all around the world who were so interested in food and who were as blown away by the evening as we were! Was such a fantastic night and we couldn't rate it enough!!

Wonderful time with 13 friends. It was my husband's 30th Surprise Birthday Party and Gabriel was more than accommodating. He let us decorate the room and we felt very welcomed. The food was outstanding- some of the best we've had in London!! Highly recommend this experience!! Thank you Gabriel.

A most enjoyable evening. Fabulous food, convivial company, cosy ambience. Thank you Gabriel and friend for a lovely time.

yet another stunning dinner by the inimitable Gabriel. This is my 3rd time, and I am bowled over every time. The creativity, flavour and textures of each dish, a mix of bold and subtle, all blend to make the most sensational dinner. And this, couple with Gabriel's warmth, welcoming and hospitality combine to make the perfect evening. Thanks!

Outstanding. Truly delicious and well balanced. Beautifully presented and cooked with care.

I heard a lot about Gabriel before going and had high expectations. I was not disappointed. at. all. He delivered amazing food with a great personal touch. He makes you feel so warm at his home and at the end of the night, you wish he was your friend. GO GO GO while it lasts!!!!

The food was amazing, and the setting was lovely. Excellent first trip to grub club

Every dish was excellent. Gabriel made sure that everyone felt welcome and explained the provenance of every dish as it was served. Would definitely recommend

This was such a great evening! Fantastic night, bloody marvellous food, great to meet new people and share in the enjoyment of Gabriel's delicious cooking...

Wow wow wow!! Totally amazing evening. Both Gabriel and Jonny were attentive, friendly and made you feel at home. The food was stunning!! I'd definitely recommend it, and definitely go again!

Gabe's food was excellent (just as it was the first time we came!). No detail is overlooked - even the crockery is amazing. Wonderful ambience. Gabe is incredibly welcoming and friendly - nothing is too much trouble.

Amazing! Such incredible food and a lovely atmosphere! I've recommended to everyone!

Amazing idea and absolutely delicious food! Very special experience !

Stunning food in an icosy setting. I loves the pottery too it was served in. I will be going back and taking everyone with me!

Great evening, good atmosphere

Having been to all of the Galvin's restaurants in London I had high expectations of this place. The only fault I could find was that I found out that Gabriel Waterhouse had been running this for five months and I only just found it. The food was incredible and the setting was great. Such a fun evening. Can't wait to come back. Well done.

The best chocolate based dessert I have ever had

Amazing food, delightful host, great company. Our first supper club experience, and such an enjoyable and memorable evening. This is what living in London is all about. When's the next one?

Absolutely fabulous! Great food great company.

Great night & Great company! I will definitely return to The Water House Project again.

A really wonderful first experience of Grub Club. Gabriel's food was delicious and he and his friend looked after us- keeping the wine we bought chilled and explaining every course. It was great to meet other like minded people too as we were altogether on a long table. Thanks Gabriel!

Excellent food and company. Certainly Michelin quality. Great host too. We'll be back!

We had such a wonderful evening. The food was outstanding, especially the artichoke veloute with raisin bread. Gabriel was the perfect host and we met some lovely people. We have recommended this to all of our friends...

Outstanding evening with delicious food, friendly company and a great host. Thanks.

Superb evening. The food and flavours were out of this world. Gabriel is an extremely talented chef and I would highly recommend! :)

Gabriel hosts an amazing Supper Club in his trendy and cozy flat. Surprising welcome drink followed by a tasty, well presented and technical 5 course menu. From the dinnerware to the bread he bakes himself too, he pays attention to every detail. The table is great as you can talk to and meet everyone so the experience is great in that sense too. Consider him from private chef too!

The food was awesome, I've eaten at some of London's top restaurants and this was one of my favourite food experiences!

Gabe was a fantastic host, along with his brother. The food was superbly delicious, and the evening was fantastic value. It was my first supper club and if they're all as good as this my waistline will be in trouble!

The food was exceptional as was the service. A superb way to spend an evening with friends!

mazing food - there were a lot of "ooohs and aaahs" as each course came out.. 13 PERFECT apple souffles was insane - as was the shot of Calvados to go in each! we had a great evening of food and a lot of talking to total strangers which was a hoot. Gabriel is a great chef and host - highly recommend

The Waterhouse Project is quite simply on a different level. Go while you still can - it's only a matter of time before demand outstrips the size of Gabriel's dining room!

Such a fun and different night. Delicious welcome drink, stunning food (amazing home made raisin bread) and great people. It is an experience I'd recommend to everyone. You could really feel how much care and attention had gone into every detail. The fact that Gabriel has worked in Michelin kitchen really shows, from the quality and originality of his food, to the seamless serving of each course and beautiful presentation. Gabriel's relaxed, unobtrusive yet welcoming manner is not something that can be learnt however, the perfect host. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for the Waterhouse project.

Amazingly delicious food in every course! Loved the intimate atmosphere of the chefs lovely home. Highly recommend this and will be going again soon!

Absolutely superb from Gabriel. He explained all his dishes, which was a nice touch. The flavours were delightful and each dish was so well presented. Will definitely be returning. I couldn't pick a highlight because it was all so delish but the goats curd and beetroot starter was one of the best starters I've ever had.

Beautifully presented food in a cosy setting - and most of all utterly delicious. Already checking the diary to arrange my next visit. Brilliant.

A fantastic event, delicious food and a charming host. Would definitely attend another event like this. Thoroughly enjoyed.

It was great experience with amazing food, will definitely be going back!

The food was so delicious! I'm going back to try the new menu!

Delicious food and beautifully presented. Had a fantastic evening in wonderful relaxed company.

Every course was absolutely phenomenal, our hosts created each beautifully plated dish in a very short amount of time (no long breaks between courses!), and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. I've already recommended this to so many friends!

Delicious, all of it. A great evening, a great host, and great food would highly reccommend

Incredible food! Lovely atmosphere! Great hosts! My first grubclub and I would highly recommend.

Is our first time and everything was just perfect.

The food really was astoundingly good; there were moments of silence at the table as all conversation was halted by the first taste of a dish. The ambience was cozy without feeling cramped, well lit and with well chosen music. All in all a fantastic evening; thanks again.

Had an absolutely fantastic evening with Gabriel and his brother Sam - such brilliant food and amazing company! So great to have such high quality food in such a chilled surrounding - it was the perfect Friday night dinner! Best of luck Gabriel (and Sam) - super excited for your future dinners!

I brought my boyfriend for his birthday and it was our first ever supper club. It was such a fantastic evening - great food, great venue (Gabriel's lovely home), great people, great host! I would recommend this to any one of my family or friends.

.

Excellent food and lovely occasion!

I came here with high expectations thanks to all the incredible reviews and we weren't disappointed! The food was incredible and it was hard to pick a favourite course, but if pushed it would have to be the risotto which was outstanding. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone, and would definitely return to try another menu!

What an incredible experience! I would wholeheartedly recommend this evening. Food was fantastic! Gabriel and his brother Samuel were lovely and we got to meet other awesome people too. Thank you Gabriel and Samuel - we hope to be back soon!!! :-)

I came here with 13 of my friends..such a great evening. The food was incredible, every course meticulously presented & delicious. Gabriel is clearly a very talented chef. Thank you

The food was great The chef was so friendly and great! People were fun!

Amazing food excellent evening

We had a lovely time at The Water House Project. Not only was the food amazing but Gabriel and his brother Samuel made us feel more than welcome in their home. Such a great idea - would recommend to all!

Sensational night - Gabriel is such a talented chef, as well as being one of the most warm, welcoming and friendly hosts. The food was out of this world and I loved speaking to all the fantastic people around the table. An absolute treat from start to finish, which left me with the happiest glow for the rest of the night. Thank you!

Great setting great hosts and the food was very good too! Especially the lamb tagine, sourdough bread and beetroot starter. Thank you Gabriel and Samuel!

Gabriel, thank you so much for hosting us on Saturday. It was my birthday, and I had booked the whole evening, and Gabriel was incredibly generous about extending numbers and difficult dietary requirements. We all had a fantastic time- you have a beautiful home and are such a talented chef- the food was equally delicious and beautifully presented and I never saw any mess in the kitchen! Standout highlight was the haddock risotto but it was all great, and phenomenal value. Thanks, and I'd highly recommend the evening to anyone considering it!

INCREDIBLE evening - delicious, Michelin-level food in a refreshingly intimate venue. Such a privilege! Highly recommend.

Lovely experience!

Thank you for a very enjoyable evening, the food and service was great. Having booked 2 months ago to get a place, it was definitely worth waiting for! Would definitely recommend and return!

Amazing food, pretty presentation and lovely atmosphere! Thanks for a great night!

Excellent food. Blistering value

Everything you could ever want from an evening. Delicious food served in a friendly atmosphere. Gabriel's menu was well thought out and perfectly delivered. From the creamy risotto to melt in the mouth lamb, also tasty beetroot with amazingly good homemade sourdough bread and all leading to the most scrumptious chocolate dessert you could imagine. Thanks for a great night out!

The food was fab! We have a very nice time there. Thanks very much :)

A fantastic evening where the host made us feel at home and relaxed. The food was immense!

The dinner we had last night was amazing! Fabulous food, amazing quality and all served perfectly! Gabriel deserves the wonderful reviews he is receiving!!

I'm not sure if it was the melt-in-your-mouth sour dough raisin bread (I've been trying to find edible bread in London for months), the tangy smoked haddock risotto made with classic English mustard or the copious glasses of turbo-charged Haute Medoc red wine supplied by my Irish friend Grainee. But 20-something English-born chef Gabriel Waterhouse managed to conjure a food-induced euphoria I hadn't experienced since I left Paris. Served up at his laid back home in hipster Bethnal Green, in East London, Gabriel hosts about a dozen people several days a week at a "pop-in" under an atrium in his dining room. The aim, he says, is to experiment and show some swagger outside the more traditionalist confines of Galvin La Chapelle, his day job in one of the capital's more swanky French restaurants. He introduces each dish, and you can walk into the kitchen and chat with him while he cooks. Highlights included the epic risotto, coated with quail eggs; beet root salad with goat's curd, carmelized walnuts and pomegranate molasses; Herdwick lamb shoulder slow cooked five hours in ginger, cinnamon, cumin, fennel seeds and cloves; and an artery-hardening chocolate fondant both refined and child-like and made with Valrons chocolate from France, peanuts, banana and yogurt ice cream and raspberry coulis. The young and friendly crowd, including a few silver-haired adventurers and a budding couple on their fourth date, ranged from anaesthetists to journalists to asset managers, all of us happily upstaged by the food. And the clincher? Five courses for 35 pounds in a city where bottled water can cost a fiver. Gabriel's brother Samuel is waiter and greeter, adding to the sense of informal intimacy. The evening is part of a London pop up program called the Grub Club. The economic crisis has helped spawn such clubs, from Barcelona to New York, as young chefs adroitly capitalise on a desire for local authenticity that doesn't break the bank. I, for one, will be back.

A truly lovely evening. We rolled away full on fantastic dishes. Gabriel introduces every course and is also very happy to chat if you steal away to pick his brain while he's plating up!

Great supper club - Gabriel and Samuel were very welcoming and gracious hosts. The food was superb and we definitely didn't leave hungry. Communal table seating meant we were sat next to strangers but that was a bonus as we had a bunch of friendly and interesting table mates to banter with

Really good food in a very convivial atmosphere, Gabriel and his staff/brother made us very welcome and produced an amazing and well balanced meal.

Delicious, beautifully presented food & great company. A really nice evening.

Amazing amazing food with only 14 people around the dinner table. What more could you want? Great night. Thanks Gabriel.

Exquisite food, great company, enough said!

Excellent food hosted in a lovely flat in Bethnal Green. Would really recommend and great value for money.

Really nice evening in a lovely home-like atmosphere. This evening was all about good food in a relaxed manner. Gabriel shared his knowledge about food and introduced each dish in a professional yet laid back style. Could not recommend it more. P.S. the lamb was sublime!

Great food and company.

From the outset of the evening I thought this would be special. Gabriel and Samuel made everyone incredibly welcome with melon Bellinis and created a warm hospitable atmosphere in which everyone felt immediately at ease. The table was beautifully laid and every course was a complete delight. Gabriel's creativity and his ability to produce extraordinarily fine food shone through as he gave us a sumptuously creamy risotto, melt in the mouth lamb and a chocolate fondant from the gods. This is an experience not to be missed. Huge thanks to Gabriel and Samuel for making this an unforgettable evening.We'll be back for sure.Suzy

I celebrated my 25th birthday at The Waterhouse Project, and what a special evening we had. We booked the whole table, coming as a group of 14; this review is on behalf of the group. Each person has contacted me since the meal to express how amazing it was and thank Gabriel for such a lovely evening. The hosts, chef Gabriel and his brother Samuel, were welcoming, friendly and remained calm throughout the evening. The flat was light, airy with a beautifully laid table and relaxed atmosphere. Each course was beautifully presented and tasted exquisite. The flavours were intense and complimented each other perfectly. My particular favourites were the goats curd and beetroot course, the risotto and THAT banana ice cream (WOW)! Gabriel introduced each course, demonstrating the high quality of his knowledge, training, skills and the ingredients he uses. Not only was the evening itself brilliant, but Gabriel was helpful and responded quickly during the planning process. Thank you for making my birthday so memorable. If I could rate the evening as more than 5/5 stars I would. I will be recommending this to everyone and am looking forward to returning to The Waterhouse Project again soon.

This is a must attend dining experience. Delicious food and fantastic hosts made the evening great fun and the attention to detail plus Gabriel's passion for quality ingredients was apparent in each and every dish.

One of the best night's out I have had! Such a great evening, amazing food, Gabriel was so passionate about the food and did an incredible job with such a high attention to detail. Perfect evening and I would do it again.

Fab night, lovely welcoming hosts, amazing food lovely setting. Very talented chef. Nothing I could fault

Great ambiance, good food. a great evening!

Quite simply I have such strong feelings about the food of the food were a person - it outclasses most dates I've ever been on. The dessert in particular was one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth. Absolutely incredible value. Met some great people. Chef so modest, so talented ambience perfect, attention to detail suburb whilst still creating a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. Absolute must taste. Will definitely visit his restaurant when he's up and running. Gabriel you are a food wizard. And Samuel is a dude.

Awesome food, Faultless hosts.

5 michelin star quality courses for under £40 a head... fantastic quality and phenomenal value for money in a private dining environment. Each course comes with a brief explanation, which really adds to the experience. Hard to pick a standout dish, but the haddock risotto is an absolute winner. I'll definitely be back, and would urge everyone to book.

A very impressive meal and a great atmosphere.

Michelin star quality food in a lovely relaxed atmosphere! Highlights included the freshly baked raising bread, smoked haddock risotto and melt in your mouth slow cooked lamb... Gabriel has a true passion for cooking carefully sourcing only the best ingredients from the lamb (sourced from the same Cumbrian sheep farm where Galvin La Chappelle get their lamb from - even Heston Blumenthal is on the waiting list!) to the French cheese board carefully selected from a cheesemonger at Spitafield market. The tableware was beautifully made up with stylish hand made Scandinavian style plates and bowls combined with traditional English silverware (great attention to detail). Fantastic value for money. I'll be coming again!

The entire evening was brilliant from start to finish. The setting is great and the food is really exceptional. Gabriel is clearly one to watch. Can't recommend it highly enough.

A fantastically enjoyable evening at The Water House Project. Having watched Gabriel's arrival on the supper club scene with interest, it was a pleasure to be welcomed to his home for dinner. The menu was expertly balanced with the freshest of choice ingredients sourced through his professional links. Gabriel humbly introduced each of the five courses himself, with a beautiful haddock risotto and a superb slow cooked spiced lamb being my personal favourites. Gabriel is clearly a passionate and talented chef but his strive to provide a compete supper club experience, from home made bread to carefully selected cheese board is wonderfully refreshing!

Outstanding - superb selection of dishes. The tender curried lamb shank was especially good, a delicious, varied starter, and a wonderful chocolate pud like nothing I've tasted before.

Lovely food, relaxed environment and handsome hosts!!

Fabulous evening - food was in general delicious and well presented - two of the courses (2nd course and desert) were absolutely divine. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the music well selected. Gabriel and Samuel were attentive hosts... and as an added bonus it was easy to get to as its walking distance from the tube. All in all a great evening and I will likely go back soon... My only complaint was that I was too full to try all of the cheeses on the board, which as a cheese lover is a pretty dire situation....

I love that your ingredients are all locally sourced and that you don't cut any corners quality-wise. The final plates are a work of art, the Galvin brothers obviously taught you well. Honestly, I think you could charge double but I know this is the beginning of your project / empire! As promised Gabriel we'll be back, with friends.

Superb evening of excellent wine, food and company. The quality of each and every course is second to none and the host couldn't be more accommodating. Wouldn't change anything and will certainly be telling my friends to come visit the Water House Project. Many thanks.

Had an absolutely ace evening at the Water House Project, really lovely surroundings, people and excellent food- would definitely recommend!

The description promises Michelin-quality dishes and this is exactly what was delivered in each delicious course. The ingredients were carefully selected and of a high quality and each dish was beautifully presented. Everything tasted phenomenal. Chef and his team were very welcoming and they managed to create a comfortable and relaxed environment that perfectly complemented the dishes that were served. Overall it was a fantastic evening, well worth the money and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

I can't remember the last time I had such a thoughtfully prepared series of dishes. Was like the tasting menu of a Michelin star restaurant in a more relaxed, sociable setting. It was a treat of an evening. My only criticism is of my own appetite, as I couldn't quite finish dessert. This made me sad as it was one of the best I've had. Thank you.

Excellent experience. So much consideration has gone into the ingredients, menu, tableware and ambience. Lovely hosts. Will certainly be back for more! XX

Last Friday’s supper was delightful. Everything was incredibly well-judged; enough time to chat to fellow guests before eating, the pace of the meal, the imagination shown in the choice of dishes – and I loved the crockery you used! You are clearly very talented and I am intrigued to see what you’ll do next. Thank you for welcoming me into your lovely home. Nishta

What a lovely evening! From the moment we arrived Gabriel was the perfect host; welcoming, friendly and attentive. The atmosphere throughout the night was wonderful, and as wine and conversation flowed Gabriel produced course after course of supremely tasty, expertly crafted and beautifully presented dishes. The mixture of flavours in the lamb dish in particular was divine, and the chocolate fondant with banana ice cream was just heavenly. I cannot recommend this supper club highly enough - amazing value for money and all in all a delightful experience. We left with smiles on our faces, full satisfied stomaches, and with the greatest admiration for Gabriel. Ten out of ten.

Fantastic evening, great atmosphere & incredible value. Drinks to start so we all managed to meet the other guests before 5 delicious courses, each explained to us & beautifully presented by Gabriel. All was delicious but the risotto was amazing with incredible flavours and the chocolate fondant & ice cream out of this world (particularly for someone who doesn't like puddings!) Highly recommended

I took my girlfriend as a surprise because we are both foodies and we really enjoyed. The food was amazing, the haddock risotto was superb, the lamb with cus-cus was a treat and the dessert amazing (the ice-cream delicious it was). She was really surprised even with the others guests that made our night very pleasant.
