Hicce Restaurant Review

Hicce is a modern British restaurant focused on wood-fire grilled dishes in lively Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross. A quick glance at Hicce’s menu will tell you that Hicce fuses intriguing elements of international cuisine, and that the there is a distinct creative flair at the heart of the cooking. Plus, a good number of the dishes are small plates. Needless to say, we were excited 😊.

Hicce is casually elegant. Simple furniture, exposed bricks, and a good use of the unique space above Wolf & Badger store. We were sat at the bar, which seemed more fun than the tables because we got to watch and interact with the friendly bartenders/waiters. Now, the food…

Beer Bread & Baba Ganoush

Fantastic. The soft and rich beer bread went really well with the velvety baba ganoush. 

Hot Sticks

Awesome. Like a kofta in texture, and very well seasoned.

Tuna Ceviche

Light, fresh and perfectly marinated little cubes of tuna. Even the slices of tomato were delicious.

Beef Croquette

It’s not what we expected based on the other croquettes we’ve happily devoured… this had a different texture, almost like pulled beef, and it was full of deep flavour. I really enjoyed the walnut pesto, celeriac and roscoff onions as well.

Chicken Thigh

Tasted like a luscious Sunday roast… only issue is that it was only one chicken thigh! 😒

We weren’t fans. It had the rich flavour that’s consistent of all hicce dishes, but we didn’t like the venison flavour.

Chocolate Tart

It was pleasant. It wasn’t too sweet, but it was close to being overly “chocolatey”.

Muscovado Creme Caramel

We loved this. It reminded both of us of childhood. Creamy, perfectly sweet, and indulgent.


Dinner at Hicce was tremendous. The service was friendly, the vibe was chilled, and the food was excellent. We recommend for dates, catchup with friends, family, or colleagues, and drinks at the bar. Hicce is moderately expensive.
