The chief executive of the charity behind the new Brixton Prison restaurant says it will give inmates the skills to help them get back into society.
"Everyone that works in The Clink has been through the prison service's security procedures and these men are nearing the end of their sentence.
The sole aim of the charity is to reduce reoffending and we recruit prisoners throughout the prison and train them up over a period of six to 18 months to gain their City and Guilds qualifications in food service and food preparation."
A three-course meal with coffee will cost around £21 a head.
