Business meal, private dining - the tasting menu left everyone full and happy - apart from the poor vegan - extra points for what I'm sure were attempts from the kitchen to wind him up for going off menu. Can't go wrong with the exotic fruit contemporary vacherin and a nice desert wine. Perfect execution, no complaints...

It was a dinner with good friends. The food was superb as was service. A bit old world but that is not a complaint. If I could have changed anything, would have preferred dinner to have taken not as long.

The food was spectacular and worthy of those three Michelin stars *** my personal favourites have to be the lobster dish and the tropical desert both were mind blowing!

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
