Olia Hercules

Carousel’s open kitchen is home to an ever-changing line-up of talented chefs from around the world who share our philosophy on what eating out should be all about: amazing cooking, friendly service, a relaxed environment and a shared experience from one table to the next.

Fresh from scooping best Debut Food Book ‘Mamushka’ at the 2016 Fortnum & Mason food and drink awards, Olia Hercules returns to her home-away-from-home for a record third residency. Olia’s menu this time will have a more modern Eastern European feel to it than February’s rustic Georgian supra, featuring refined dishes like ‘Cep, Buckwheat and Chestnut Broth’ and ‘Pork Belly with Fermented Sauerkraut, Prunes and Spices’. Every one of Olia’s dishes brims with heart, soul and generosity of spirit. Pull up a chair and enjoy!
