The Glasshouse

Kew, Richmond upon Thames, 45-60£
05/11/2020: Excellent if slightly formal service. Wine list a bit pretentious with limited list but still modest to ridiculously priced wine (£300 a bottle) Food is good but to my mind trying too hard to be clever and original rather than getting simple things done excellently. Wouldn’t rush back.
25/10/2020: This was my second visit to The Glasshouse. For me, the mark of great fine dining (aside from delicious food and wine) is seamless service and an attractive and comfortable setting. The Glasshouse has all of these in abundance. The food is perfectly prepared, the staff are friendly and inconspicuous and the restaurant is warm and inviting. A third visit is certainly not off the cards.


Chez Lindsay

South Richmond, Richmond upon Thames, >100£
05/11/2020: Just by searching for a French restaurant in Richmond we found this little gem. A great French restaurant which genuinely feels like you have pooped across the Channel. A great selection of tasty dishes and good wine to accompany them and not too expensive. Fantastic staff who were very friendly and happy to put up with my attempts at speaking French. Just a shame we discovered it one the eve of Lockdown2 but we will be back
05/11/2020: We hadn’t been for a while but fabulous as ever. Very pleased to see excellent veggie choices. The rigatoni sounded a bit dull on the menu but was really special! We had a wonderfully cooked, tasty meal with a good wine and at a very reasonable price. All very Covid aware but in no way detracted from the warm and convivial atmosphere. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Thanks for a lovely birthday!


The Ritz Restaurant

St James's, City of London,Westminster
05/11/2020: The Ritz is one of those places where from the moment you walk in, you feel almost as if you are in another world, where nothing is too much trouble and all of the staff want to make your time there as enjoyable as possible. On a Saturday night with the house band (a smaller than usual ensemble of a singer and pianist in COVID-19 times) playing The Ritz is even more special than usual with a wonderful atmosphere that offers the perfect antidote to current times.The food was as good as ever, and as usual we had the longest tasting menu which has unfortunately had to lose a course (which is of course reflected in the reduced price) as a result of the 10pm curfew. Nevertheless, the quality of the cookery is superb, and we had another opportunity to enjoy the amazing aged parmesan custard and black truffle dish which is the sort of dish that one would be more than happy with at any of Europe's finest 3* Michelin tables. Their seasonal dover sole dish was beautiful with mushroom flavours and a sauce with halves of peeled grapes, obviously inspired by Escoffier's classic Veronique. The execution and flavours in their dishes are spot on and all of the dishes are unashamedly luxurious with their rich, butter based champagne sauces, caviar and truffles. Who wouldn't be happy to enjoy the most luxurious produce cooked with finesse?As the 10pm curfew was fast approaching all of the waiters changed up a gear to try and get the service finished on time. As an extra course, with a quarter of hour to spare we watched our crepes Suzette being prepared tableside and despite the time pressures the sauce was not rushed and was simply perfect. This is a very classic dish and all the more delicious for it. The perfect end to a lovely evening. With all the current restrictions on international travel, The Ritz offers an easy opportunity to escape to a place with marvellous food and a great atmosphere which in these times is all the more welcome than ever. P.S. At a subsequent dinner, their very last dinner service before the second lockdown, the food and atmosphere was as wonderful as ever and for a few hours, after stepping into The Ritz, one could almost forget about the world and all its many troubles. We're already looking forward to hopefully dining there in December. In every sense, The Ritz is in a league of its own.
04/11/2020: After months of lockdown and various attempt in booking this restaurant on the dates we wanted, finally we managed to get into before another lockdown. The excitement and adrenaline pumping into our bodies and the overall experience was a bit of a let down. High expectation and pride of walking into an institution so famous and highly figured amongst the elite. Maybe due to the virus who has taken the hedge out of this visit, we found (a) the welcoming and (b) the food was mediocre among the top hotels of the 5 star market. We found lots of staffs on duty (again probably due to lockdown) and far too many! Staff ratio one staff to one guest?? To be seen.... we had limited choice of starter, main course and dessert. Just three of each. Bread roll was of highest quality,Starter we chose seabream. Looked great and we expected to be hot, but it wasnt!Main: one lamb cutlet and one salmon, both below par. Food warm, sauce cold, aubergine cool, Salmon was not as a fillet but tasted as mousse and wife left half of it. We were asked how the meal was just as we ended and put down the cutleries, if only someone arrived earlier we would have said to do something without making obvious to other guest in the vicinity!Desert: chocolate souffle was outstanding, tasty and looked good.Chocolate praline was also flavoursome, good and very tasty. Very pleasant staff, very professionals and majority from Italy which was an icing on the cake because we felt at home away from home.


Gauthier Soho

West End, City of London,Westminster, 60-100£
25/10/2020: We tried the vegan tasting menu last summer and were excited to read about the prepare at home 9 course vegan boxes. We appreciate restaurants are doing their best to make things Covid safe but myself and my partner are still not comfortable to travel into London and eat out. We tried one of the boxes last night. It was delicious, easy to prepare and tasted almost as good as eating in the restaurant. The only reason for 4 stars not 5 is we were very disappointed with the huge amount of plastic in the packaging. I appreciate the food needs to be kept cold and protected in transit but I’m sure there must be a way of reducing the plastic. One of our local takeaways now uses completely recyclable containers which can also go in the microwave so there are other options. I’d even pay a little more to make things more environmentally friendly. It was still a wonderful experience, if a little expensive. This will not stop us trying another for a treat in the near future.
18/10/2020: Mi esposa y yo cenamos aquí ayer a la hora del almuerzo 17 de octubre. Se suponía que íbamos a irnos en julio, pero todavía estaba cerrado después del bloqueo inspirado en Covid. El restaurante ha sido redecorado con mamparas colgantes para proporcionar separación entre las mesas. El servicio fue cortés y atento y nos sentimos muy seguros en cuanto a Covid.La comida era excelente, mi esposa cenó en el menú vegano "Verde" mientras que yo cené en el omnívoro "Rojo". Ambos menús eran una delicia. La comida estaba muy rica, llena de sabores interesantes. El menú del almuerzo en 45/40 tiene una relación calidad-precio fantástica Ambos tuvimos una comida realmente encantadora, volveremos.


Galvin La Chapelle

Spitalfields and Banglatown, Tower Hamlets
08/11/2020: The best of welcomes and the most amazing architecture met us on one of the last evenings before lockdown 2.We were instantly made comfortable by everyone we met and each of our SEVEN courses was delicious.There was no 'fussiness or 'preciousness' that you may associate with some Michelin establishments...and despite all the servers wearing masks, we were kept informed all the way throughout our meal.Thank you to Sarah, Franco and everyoneFran and Stu
01/11/2020: We had a fantastic meal at this great restaurant. Very attentive service from superb staff. Really nice surroundings and atmosphere. Cannot fault anything and we will return. Thanks Galvin La Chapelle team for looking after us.


Le Gavroche

West End, City of London,Westminster
08/11/2020: I visited for the first time in 20 years recently, sampling the weekday lunch and have to say that from the minute I entered the restaurant to the moment I left, everything was top notch: Michel Roux Jr came round to say hello at one point (although I nearly didn’t realise who it was due to him wearing a face mask ) and when I mentioned it was my birthday the next day, they went to the effort of customising my dessert. Hope to again very soon with hopefully less restrictions for the public in place but it certainly won’t be another 20 years before I do so.
25/10/2020: We had read an article earlier in lockdown by Michel Roux that Michelin restaurants were going to be challenged with absence of business dining and foreign visitors so he intended offering a good value menu. We booked and walked in to a very busy lunch time service. £85 for 4 courses with lunch. Food was great. Not a huge choice but enough and service of course was excellent from a young and knowledgeable team. It was also a great pleasure to see the chef himself and he stopped and chatted with diners, even complementing my husband on his napkin tick. The highlight for my husband also being the availability of a particular English wine, that was also spotted and discussed with Michel Roux. Overall a lovely experience, one that we couldn’t do too regularly but can and have recommended this to lots of others.


La Belle Epoque

Heathrow Villages, Hillingdon, 60-100£



Marylebone High Street, City of London,Westminster, >100£
25/10/2020: One of my favourites but covid and months since my last review.The terrace is beautiful and now propetly heated.Immaculatefood ftom the chef after12 years.Very fair prices - be carefulwith yhe wine.Excellent service ismael the boss, anthony and he wine steward. Warm reception and paldiss to leva a really caring and professional waitress.Great for work lunches and a nice bar private room.Thank you. Andrew
18/10/2020: Siempre leo algunas críticas negativas recientes antes de comenzar con la mía solo para fundamentar mis comentarios, ¡pero en realidad me sorprendió bastante ver lo que algunas personas han dicho recientemente sobre el servicio! En lo que a mí respecta, es excepcional. Lanzado a la perfección. Amable pero no exagerado, muy confiado y natural. Justo lo que debería ser.Además de esto, y para mí esto es un gran factor decisivo en este momento, ¡no hubo ningún coronafuss en absoluto, gracias a Dios!La habitación es cómoda y espaciosa, aunque por primera vez noté que las servilletas dejaban pelusa en mi traje oscuro.En cuanto a la comida, bueno, habíamos comido en un restaurante con una estrella Michelin el día anterior, por lo que había una barra alta e hicieron un esfuerzo concertado: la comida aquí es extremadamente confiable, pero los budines carecían un poco de técnica. habilidad y la presentación fue pobre. Si tuvieran una estrella Michelin, podrían haberla perdido hoy.Tal vez está tratando de no tocar demasiado los platos debido a la emergencia sanitaria, pero en casi todos los platos había una miga o salpicadura errante, una rebanada de carne que se volcó en el tránsito, etc., etc. .Para colmo, dos de los tres helados se estaban derritiendo mal (en un día frío) como si los hubieran dejado demasiado tiempo en el paso.En general, un almuerzo muy agradable y, por supuesto, volveremos una y otra vez, sobre todo por las caras sonrientes y la cálida bienvenida.¡Gracias a todos los interesados!



Knightsbridge and Belgravia, City of London,Westminster, >100£
04/11/2020: This is a lovely place to eat, excellent food, charming and relaxing ambiance and really marvellous staff. I have to say that the staff here are exceptionally good, warm, friendly without being obsequious or over-familiar, knowledgable and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble. Cooking is accomplished and confident. Dishes are beautifully presented. We opted for the sommelier’s wine choices, all of which were very interesting indeed and complemented our lunch very well. We had a very relaxing, unhurried and delightful lunch. After lockdown, we shall undoubtedly return.
30/10/2020: We had just recently celebrated our wedding anniversary and as part of our celebrations we decided to give Marcus a try. We decided on the 7 course tasting menu but decided against the wine pairing. Instead I had a large glass of white and my husband a large glass of red, both were excellent choices. Tap water was freely available on the table all evening too. The service was top notch, each course was fully explained to us and I ran out of complimentary words to describe the food.. The burrata starter was simply sensational, an explosion of flavours; the pork was so tasty with perfect crackling and the steak was perfectly cooked with the fluffiest yet crispiest potato ever! We were not rushed throughout the evening, the waiting staff were charming and we even had a couple of glimpses of Marcus himself. If you’re after a special meal out, go to Marcus, you will not be disappointed.


La Trompette

Turnham Green, Hounslow, 60-100£
05/11/2020: La Trompette by earning a Star from Michelin is known to offer the most delicious food, artistically presented. That really is what one should expect. We found the meal rather over salty, also we felt the service was rather over-attentive but .... horror of horrors at this level of establishment can one forgive spelling errors on the menu and drinks list. Probably this would not upset most diners but it indicates a slip in attention to the meticulous detail needed to warrant maintaining cred. Similarly at such a tricky time socially ‘the rules’ were not always followed through.Think I’m being picky? Maybe. We will return once the lockdown is over and hope these minor irritations have been checked and addressed.
30/10/2020: We have been going to this restaurant for 18 years, and it has been our go to restaurant for special occasions or generally indulging a bit. In all this time, we have not had one bad meal, or even one bad dish. We went there again recently, visiting for the first time after the COVID closure, and the food was as good as ever. If anything, the experience was even better than before as the service, which had sometimes been a bit slow on previous visits, was this time extremely quick and efficient. Those who want to be seen in a trendy place serving showy experimental dishes will probably be a bit disappointed. If on the other hand you are looking for excellent French/European cooking in a classic (and classy) setting, you will LOVE this place.


Chez Vous

Graveney, Wandsworth
08/10/2020: ¡Fantástica experiencia! Probablemente fuimos la primera mesa de la noche y nuestro anfitrión fue súper atento y nos brindó un excelente servicio. El vino de la casa (mezcla libanesa de 9 uvas) fue excelente. La comida era excelente, cocinada a la perfección e increíblemente fresca. Esta fue la mejor comida que tuvimos en mucho tiempo y volveremos pronto.
02/10/2020: Visited here with a small group of friends and had a delicious meal with excellent service. Lovely homely feel, would definitely recommend.


Aux Merveilleux de Fred

Brompton, Kensington and Chelsea
08/10/2020: We are so glad we found this amazing place! Delicious scones and caramel creme. Great service and so many options. Highly recommend.


Galvin Cafe a Vin

Spitalfields and Banglatown, Tower Hamlets, >100£
30/10/2020: I went with a friend for my birthday and we sat outside to abide by the latest rules. As a regular Galvin customer I had received an email about this new venue and a great 3 course offer. Both my friend and I loved our dishes, I had partridge as my main which was a definite winner along with the chocolate dessert. Really friendly staff, we will definitely be returning.
30/10/2020: Went there last night with my little one as there was a lovely offer for half term where kids eat free. I very much enjoyed the fish; perfectly cooked. My little one also loved the chicken and beans with chips. Delightful wines as always. Attentive staff. Been here since its opening lots of time and still going strong!


The White Onion

Village, Merton
17/10/2020: Well deserved Tripadvisor Travellers Choice 2020. Fine dining in a very relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff, nice cocktail, good wine and food cooked to perfection. Don't hesitate if you're in Wimbledon book a table and try them you will not be disappointed. Venison & the chocolate crème brulée are to die for!
06/10/2020: A la Cebolla Blanca para una cena relajante. Todo al nivel habitual de perfección. Tuve el entrante de remolacha bebé horneada y luego la panceta de cerdo, ambos exquisitos y encantador esposo tenía una sopa de raclette absolutamente irresistible, y luego venado con frutos rojos. Todo excelente, aunque creo que la sopa y el venado fueron los mejores por un pequeño margen. Con, por supuesto, un servicio encantador, un maravilloso pan casero y un agradable ambiente para el almuerzo de los domingos. Todo maravilloso, este restaurante es una delicia, y el menú de fin de semana de precio fijo tiene un valor asombroso para este nivel de cocina y servicio.



Holborn and Covent Garden, Camden
27/09/2020: Posiblemente una de las mejores comidas que he tenido en mi vida. Sin duda, una de las mejores comidas jamás vividas en Londres. Excelente comida genuina, bien cocinada. Estos chicos rezuman pasión tanto como su sabrosa cocina tradicional francesa.Algunos de los vinos tienen un precio astronómico para mi bolsillo promedio, pero como dice el viejo adagio "obtienes lo que pagas". Todos pueden jugar al pinball clásico en mi humilde establecimiento cuando lo deseen. Todos se lo merecen por lo que han hecho por el NHS y, en particular, por la calle. El personal del hospital de Thomas. Personal fantástico. Gracias Ottos.
26/09/2020: Casi se puede pasar caminando por este pequeño restaurante, afortunadamente mi esposo conoce muy bien esta joya. Mi primera visita, ¡pero ciertamente yo también quiero ser un habitual! El servicio es de primera, cálido y profesional. Un pequeño menú que ofrece calidad, sabor y presentación, ¡y calorías! todo ello acompañado de magníficos vinos. Tarde divina.
