Make no mistake. This is excellent cooking. The octopus starter felt more like pasta. It was so well crafted. The halibut was perfectly done and the touches of lovage and sea broth were sublime. The triple booked chips. Once a signature of Mr B were — for me — all crunch and no fluff. Which was a shame IMHO. The... More

From the cocktails when we first arrived to the final sip of desert wine, this was a dinner to remember. The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable with each dish given a full explanation. Normally we are not in the habit of taking photos of food but made an exception. The "Fruit Meat" was an amazing dish, as was... More

Spectacular menu with thoughtful, delicious, different dishes. Like the Meat Fruit, Savoury Porridge and Roast Marrowbone. The menu says that - "Our menu offers modern dishes, inspired by historic British gastronomy" The effect is pretty spectacular. As a finale, the ice cream made at your table with liquid nitrogen is hard to beat!

I had a great time with my friends as it was a special occasion. However, I left a little disappointed. The food was good. The service was good. But for the money and the hype it didn't quite deliver. In this price bracket standards have to be high, but in 2016 I had meals at other places that delivered greatness.... More

I've been before but went with a group of girlfriends. I was desperate to return and take my boyfriend as I haven't stopped talking about their meat fruit starter in a year! Had to book 3 months in advance which is pretty normal for somewhere like this. I'm sure you could have got a table sooner the time but being... More

Having had my birthday dinner at this place, I have really enjoyed the experience. Altought it is not the easiest place to find due to its position within the Mandarin Oriental, once you enter, the service provided is great. Food is amazingly tasty and cleverly presented. Will definitelly be back at some other special occasion.

The pig's cheek ragu was simply one of the most flavoursome things I have ever tasted. Genuinely, it blew me away. The five spice powdered duck breast was equally mind blowing. It's not cheap, but a fantastic pick for a special occasion.

Took my girlfriend for her 30th birthday. Lovely setting and great service, especially for a special occasion. Very helpful and friendly staff. We were recommended a lovely bottle of Malbec. Starters were very nice, definitely try the calf tail and saffron rice. Turbot was very nice, my steak was well cooked but not the best ive ever had. Desserts you... More

After trying numerous fine dining restaurants in central London, this was a very pleasant experience. Compared to other restaurants, the food was reasonably priced and every bit as satisfying. There was a wide variety of dishes to choose from, each inspired by a specific time period. The wait staff was friendly and helpful and you are even afforded a view... More

My girlfriend took me here yesterday for my 30th, and it really was a special experience. I've read a couple of the more negative reviews below and I have to disagree with them! The food: marrowbone on Welsh cake with snails was rich and flavoursome. The meat fruit (parfait within a tangerine skin) was the smoothest and richest consistency and... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
