La Belle Epoque

Heathrow Villages, Hillingdon, 60-100£
11/04/2020: The restaurant is incrible from the decor style, great service of attendants to amazing food. I was delighted by the treatment I received and delicious food. I will certainly eat there again if I stay at Sofitel... But it is worth going there if you are around Terminal 5 at Heathrow. The waiter who served me was Andrei and was amazing. Great work and company. Thank you all La Belle Epoque staff.
19/03/2020: Found myself in this restaurant on a Saturday night before a Sunday flight. Despite sitting on my own, I didn't feel out of place. Excellent service from all members of staff. The food was beautiful, central London restaurant quality without a central London price. Can't make a criticism of any part of my visit.


Le Gavroche

West End, City of London,Westminster
31/03/2020: We were an hour late and wearing rugby shirts but this didn’t bother staff in the slightest, they welcomed us kindly without a side wards glance. As for the food what can I say no words describe it but above all the cheese soufflé (sounds less exiting couldn’t be more wrong) completely blew my mind, thank you!
16/03/2020: We went with friends for my wife's birthday and were impressed. Affectionately known to our friend, who has eaten then for 40 years, as "Gavvers" this was our first visit.Reservations become available for the lunch menu 3 months in advance and are gone within minutes and one can see why because for £76 including vat and service, three courses, canapes, an amuse bouche, coffee and mignardises plus a half bottle of good wine each this is, in this day and age, a bargain.We had a game pasty with honeyed celeriac to start which was divine followed by the best pork I have ever eaten with a sage sauce and onion puree. Desert was an old 70's classic Rum Baba but like no other and unlike anything I have had before or likely to have again served with pineapple and vanilla cream. The cheese board which a couple of friends opted for was spectacular and of a quality you normally only see in France.Service was professional, friendly but not familiar and seeing Michel Junior doing the rounds of the tables was a nice touch. It shows confidence in the staff and respect for the clients. The basement restaurant itself has a warm cosy feel which would perhaps be best appreciated at night as on a sunny day it was perhaps a bit dark and gloomy.There is a bar upstairs for pre meal drinks and it would be easy to simply walk past outside as the frontage is very discreet. We rarely visit London but when we do we would love to go again. Thanks for a great time to all involved and our sympathies for the recent loss of Michel senior.


Gauthier Soho

West End, City of London,Westminster, 60-100£
29/06/2020: I used this restaurant so many times over the last a couple of years. First a couple of times were fine. However their quality has been getting worse in the last 1-2 years. Especially after they pushed to sell discounted meal vouchers. In addition, their services were very rude for non white customers. This is very clear indeed and not acceptable. Whenever I go there with my husband who is white, they give me quite different service compared to being with my Asian friends. especially seating!!! They always try to give better service to whites. I complained to the floor manager about teir rudeness based on racism once, but he was very rude indeed. Since then I did not visit them. If you are not white or do not have any good discounted voucher, I do not recommend this restaurant at all.
15/03/2020: had to book (online) at 6.30 or 9.00 on a Friday evening. Half empty. People coming in at 7 and 7.30. Smart casual dress code. Some other cusomets looked like they'd come in from a ramble! The place can't make up it's mind if it's traditional or trendy. Had the 8 course tasting menu. The food is good but not great. Two dishes had a seeafoodsoup/bisque sauce. Flavour of scallops in one was overwhelmed. Carrot (grated at table) as first course with chopped onion, tomato etc was a bit embrarassing. The best bit was the wine pairings ... they were really good. I sensed Gauthier is living on past glories/reviews.


The Ritz Restaurant

St James's, City of London,Westminster
06/07/2020: what a absolute treat to have gone here for afternoon tea. The surroundings are so opulent and stunning. You do feel like your eating somewhere special. The service was fantastic and nothing was to much trouble for them. A must if you love afternoon tea one of the most iconic things to do while in London.
05/07/2020: J'ai décidé de dîner au Ritz pour fêter Noël. L'ambiance et la décoration étaient spectaculaires, nous avions une belle table au milieu du restaurant et le service au départ très bon. Tout, du service à la nourriture extrêmement bien présentée et délicieuse, était merveilleux. Une expérience vraiment incroyable que nous n'oublierons jamais.


Seven Park Place

St James's, City of London,Westminster, 60-100£
20/03/2020: We were given the opportunity to eat here as a present from my daughters and it was fabulous. The food was stunning, each course just sublime. We opted for the Sommelier to choose our wine and it was the right choice, ideal pairing, wonderful wines. I can't praise the food and the service highly enough. If you get the opprotunity to go here, do it, you won't be disappointed.
14/03/2020: I bought my boyfriend a Virgin Experience Day voucher for Christmas and we finally got round to redeeming our three-course lunch at Seven Park Place today. We like our Michelin-starred restaurants and this one certainly did not disappoint. Food was exceptional, I especially enjoyed the chocolate tart and I have never had lamb as tender and flavoursome as that in my main. I think what blew us away the most was all the complemetary parts of the meal! I have previously found that if I go to a restaurant with a voucher, the service can be a little sloppier and the food a bit less special than you'd expect because they know you won't be paying anything on the day. In comparison, the service here was brilliant and we were given free bread and soup for appertizers and a plate of mini cakes and truffles to finish which was spectacular. I also want to comment on the restaurant itself because it had a wonderful, relaxed and calm atmosphere. It was like we had left the rush of London and stepped into a bubble of tranquility. We appreciated that the waiters were laid back and had a laugh and a joke with us while they were serving.Would recommend this place to everyone and will DEFINITELY be coming back.


La Trompette

Turnham Green, Hounslow, 60-100£
13/04/2020: I dine quite regularly at La Trompette and it’s one of my favourites in West London. Consistently good food, innovative cooking, great service, lovely dining room - La Trompette ticks all the boxes! I had lunch there just before the Covid 19 shutdown and will be back as soon as life returns to normal.
08/03/2020: La Trompette is an absolute gem! The wine list is so extensive, the food is absolutely delicious, the service is next to none! The menu is very balanced with meat, fish and vegetarian options, there is also a tasting menu which looked divine as well! I had the cod and my boyfriend had the lamb, we were both very happy with our choices! The restaurant is keeping classic French traditions with a modern twist! Will absolutely visit again!


The Glasshouse

Kew, Richmond upon Thames, 45-60£
07/03/2020: We went as a family of four. We were disappointed. We were even more disappointed when we wrote with feed back only to receive a very arrogant and rude response from the owners.
06/03/2020: Ottimo ristorante stellato fuori Londra, vicino Richmond. Siamo stati ospiti di amici una domenica a pranzo. Personale estremamente gentile e servizio impeccabile. Molto elegante, cibo di qualità presentato in modo ineccepibilmente raffinato. I prezzi sono piuttosto alti, come si conviene a un locale così di classe. Tuttavia molto consigliato.



Holborn and Covent Garden, Camden
07/03/2020: My favorite restaurant in London. Old school french done right. The service is precise and friendly. The food is exactly as it should be. The smoked salmon and steak tartar are prepared tableside. The food is traditional and cooked just right. The desserts are noteworthy. And Otto is there making sure everything is working just right.
24/02/2020: There's no getting away from the fact that Otto's is almost in a time warp, BUT does it brilliantly. Wonderful staff, quirky decor, great seating all make the experience hugely enjoyable. However, that is not enough to make a restaurant good and here the food is simply excellent. The lobster bisque was sublime, boudin noir was incredible, the steak tartare, made at the table, was the best I have ever had. We tried the Bresse chicken and it was amazing. Proper French cooking at its best. We will go again without doubt (but not until my cholesterol level drops a bit!).


The White Onion

Village, Merton
03/07/2020: Have been around the world and appreciate well designed and executed cuisineWhite Onion continues to deliver excellence; day in/ day outEven though White Onion restaurant was closed during covid shutdown we ordered take out and the food was simply EXCELLENT We had guinea fowl, spinach, whipped potatoes and mushrooms with a sauce to die forThe quality was simply superb....all that was lacking was the ambiance and service White Onion offers when you dine on site ...which is open JULY 3, 2020Treat those you love to a special experience
21/03/2020: Fabulous from entering to leaving. Delicious bread & loads of choice. The staff are so friendly & helpful. The food is beyond delicious. A wonderful experience. Thank you.


Chez Lindsay

South Richmond, Richmond upon Thames, >100£
06/07/2020: Went on Richmond walk yesterday with my husband. Was a beautiful day and we realised most restaurants are open. We tried to come in without any reservations, the two ladies in front were polite to tell us to write our name and contact number. Whilst my husband was doing that an old gentleman approached me and asked (again) if I have reservations, as soon as I replied no, HE SHOOED ME AWAY with his hand and told me to leave then walked away. I was too shocked to believe that it just happened. My husband didn’t see it but the one of the girls did. And when I asked if he’s for real, that girl tried to make an excuse but started to whisper with the other girl and made it looked like it’s a regular thing. My husband who is French was still confuse on what just happened in a matter of minutes. No one apologised to me. So me and my husband walked out. I wouldn’t want someone might spit on my meal if I stayed. WILL. NEVER. GO. OR RECOMMEND this place EVER. If you want to support someone like this than other hardworking and polite people, choice is yours
06/07/2020: Our first meal out after lockdown and it did not let us down. We came for an early dinner on Monday evening, our first meal out post lockdown, and the service and the food was impeccable as ever. Laurent is absolutely wonderful; his service is impeccable and made our evening so much more amazing. My boyfriend is a chef and I work as a manager front of house and Laurent spent time talking to us about lockdown and how times have changed and how much he loves his job and the industry itself. On every occasion we have visited. Laurent has served us and every time he has been wonderful. We cannot wait to come back ASAP. What an absolute treasure of a restaurant in Richmond! Wonderful food and impeccable service.


L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon

St James's, City of London,Westminster, >100£
06/06/2019: Una experiencia para recordar, pudimos degustar gran cantidad y variedad de platos con un maridaje perfecto.
15/04/2019: 3 חברים הזמנו מראש לצהרים Reçu de L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon London



Marylebone High Street, City of London,Westminster, >100£
25/03/2020: Had the most amazing lunch here with some pretty incredible drinks, the venue is beautiful and the staff were really nice.
09/03/2020: Не плохой ресторан, отмеченный гидом Мишлен. Еда вкусная и качественная, хорошая подача. Мы брали тестинг сет. Остались довольны.



Knightsbridge and Belgravia, City of London,Westminster, >100£
16/03/2020: We had a great time at Marcus this weekend. The first thing to say is that we received a friendly welcome and service during the whole evening. You expect the food to be high quality but the experience was enhanced by the fact that the atmosphere was friendly and not too stuffy, something that can be off putting about going to high end restaurants. On Saturday evening you get the choice of the 5 or 8 course tasting menu (£115 or £135) and we chose the latter. The entire menu was great but the standout dishes were the scallops and the duck. As you would expect the garnishes, sauces and textures throughout the menu were great and without doubt make the difference between good and excellent food. The Italian meringue/mascarpone was beautiful but the real surprise in the dessert courses was the Brie mousse. My personal highlight was the bonus slice of the legendary egg custard tart.The main dining room is a beautiful setting for a meal and throughout the evening we were given plenty of time to enjoy our evening without ever feeling rushed. Eating at a restaurant such as this isn’t cheap but for a one-off treat is was a great dining experience that lived up to our expectations.
16/03/2020: We were expecting good food and it was fantastic. We went for the a la carte, my favourite was the wood pigeon. We had the cheese and also sweets so were fully stuffed by the end. Friendly, helpful, non intrusive service although a little stuffy. The wine prices are obscene.


Galvin at Windows Restaurant

West End, City of London,Westminster, 60-100£
04/06/2020: Another Great Chef’s Tasting MenuOver many years of traveling to London, usually on business, we have enjoyed dining at Galvin @ Windows, atop the Hilton Park Lane, in Mayfair. We have even come in a day, or so early, just to dine there, and often on the first night of our visit. In September, it was the third night, but then this was not our usual business trip.We arrived for our reservation, and were seated at a nice table, at which we have dined several times - along the windows, facing south. Now, Galvin the restaurant is in a rectangular area, that runs from east (at the hub of the building, and elevators), to the west. There are windows on the south, west and north side. This dining room is on two levels, with a lower level on all three sides, along the glass, then a raised area (a couple of low steps), running down the center, to allow those patrons a view, above the tables at the windows. We have dined in both, and prefer the lower level, but have no objections, if we are seated on that upper level.We started with a couple of glasses of Louis Roederer Carte Blanch Champagne NV, while we looked over the menu for the evening. While the á la carte selections were tempting, we decided on Chef Joo Won’s “Fine Wine Dégustation Menu,” with Sommelier Rudina Arapi’s Wine Pairings. This has been a common selection for us, and they have never let us down. We sat back, waiting for the evening to begin, nibbling on the great olives that Galvin always has at the table. These are probably the best olives, I have ever encountered, and I think that I could eat the entire jar!.First came the Amuse Bouche Course (Jigab, or Korean for “Purse”), served with Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs ‘07 - ah, more Champagne. The evening was getting off to a great start, and then we had an array of tasty breads, arrive. I noticed that Galvin has added a new butter knife - or at least I had not seen it before. It resembled a silver tulip bulb on the base, with the blade atop that. The larger, weighted base kept this knife upright, and the blade off of the table. It also did not need to balance on the side of the bread plate - neat!First Course was Raw Kingfish w/ cucumber, kohlrabi and sweet chilli, served with Domaine Mittnacht Grand Cru Rosacker Riesling from Alsace ‘14 - this was an excellent starter, even though I am not a fan of cucumber (unless pickled). Everything in the dish was in great balance, as was the Riesling. A wonderful course, and wine pairing. We were definitely starting well.The next course was Isle of Wight Tomatoes w/ Mozzarella, black olive caramel, basil oil, chilli and sesame, served with Domaine Billaud-Simon Grand Cru Les Preuses Chablis ‘16 - the flinty Chablis was a perfect counter-point to the tomatoes and especially the Mozzarella. We were really having fun now. We also got an extra wine, the IS Argiolas Vermentino, Sardinia ‘17.Next was Kimchi Risotto w/ slow-cooked egg and sesame, with Domaine Joseph Voillot Volnay 1er Cru En Champans ‘14 - while I love Risotto, I was a bit hesitant with the Kimchi, but then we’ve done several Korean-themed dinners with Chef Won, so I just went with the flow, and this was a spectacular dish, and the Volnay paired beautifully. We got a bonus wine here, the Huia Marlborough Pinot Gris ‘17 - nice, but the Volnay over-shadowed it.The Fish Course was Baked Hake w/ seaweed crust, Iberico pork and spicy cabbage, paired with Vincent Girardin Puligny-Montrachet Les Vieilles Vignes ‘16 - while Girardin is not my favorite producer in Puligny-Montrachet, this was a lovely wine, and served at the appropriate temp - barely cool. It went beautifully with the Hake. Now, on our flight over, United Airlines had served Hake, which, for airline food, was not bad (at 30'000'), this was superb! The fish was moist, and the seaweed crust set it off wonderfully. Maybe United Airlines needs to consult with Chef Won? Our extra wine was Bekseju “Traditional Korean Wine,” which was quite interesting.Our Meat Course was Fillet of Scotch Beef w/ a stew of braised ox heart, short rib and pomme anna in a red wine jus, paired with the Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2ème Cru Classé Pauillac ‘06 - Wow, this dish was likely the highlight of a meal with nothing but highlights, and the older Bordeaux was drinking beautifully with it. For this course, we also got the Mas De Daumas Gassac Saint-Guilhem-Le Désert Cité D’Aniane ‘16. Intermezzo was Yoghurt Sorbet & shizo granita - perfect!The Dessert Course was Carrot Cake w/ cream cheese and “carrot cake ice cream,” served with Château d’Yquem 1er Cru Supérieur Sauternes ‘02 - OK, I am not the “dessert person” in the family, but this was very good, and with the d’Yquem, perfect - I mean, what’s not to love, with a glass of d’Yquem? Well, our extra wine, the Domaine L’Ancienne Cure L’Abbaye Monbazillac ‘11 did a nice job too, but was “out classed” in this instance.The entire meal, and the wine pairings, was excellent. Even at £399/person, we felt that it was a good value - especially with these wines.All evening, our service, and the wine service, was perfect, with excellent pacing. Our Sommelier took the time to explain Ms Arapi’s thinking on each pairing, and though I knew most of the wines, I learned a few new details on each.The room was beautiful, and though it was cloudy, the sunset was still lovely, and our view to the south, was great, as well. I have found very few “view restaurants,” with great food, but Galvin @ Windows is one of the exceptions. Come for the view - stay for the food.When we had arrived, the restaurant was virtually empty, but we were dining early, and especially by London standards. As the evening progressed, the areas, which we could see, filled up, with maybe 1-2 tables only, remaining empty. The noise level was low to barely moderate, and many of the diners seemed to be celebrating something - lots of quite, intimate conversations around us. In our years of visiting Galvin @ Windows, I do not recall any occasion, where the dB level exceeded moderate.The lighting is good, and one can get a good look at the culinary artistry, being placed before them. Being along the south-facing windows, provided us with a bit of ambient light, as well.It was just a perfect evening of creative and interesting food, great service and wonderful wines. All the more reason to return, when we are in London.
17/05/2020: Beautiful city evening views. I had a very tasty wild mushroom consommé for my starter, and Gigha Halibut for my main. The food was delicious, and the service high-end stellar.


Chez Tonton

East Barnet, Barnet
29/02/2020: We have been going to Chez Tonton for over 20 years. Eric and his team never fail to delight with his their food and wines. Good variety of dishes but look for the specials on the blackboards.
23/02/2020: Would recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner as very tasty mostly freshly cooked food and good service
