Incredible experience. From the entry foyer to the themed room decors. Brilliant designs in upscale Mayfair. We opted for lunch in the Lecture Room versus High Tea downstairs. A little more elegant and a full three course meal with optional cheese boards. Pierre Gagnaire and his team have created a menu beyond criticism. Presented beautifully in a stunning maroon and...

We booked this restaurant to celebrate our daughters 18th and had the evening tasting menu. My husband and I have been fortunate to eat in some of the best restaurants in the UK and beyond and this is now top of our list as the best yet. Couldn't fault it at all. The food was beautifully presented, delicious and plentiful.... More

Great location, great service, veery good taste in decoration, good passion fruit cocktails, not cheap but worth it. We only had a problem at the door when why tried to enter next day night: it was not even 11.30 and were told at the door that it was too late. We were appropiately and fancy dressed. Be careful with that... More

We are constructively critical, always, yet our experience here was MEMORABLE, PERFECT, FAULTLESS! The arrival, immediate connection, theatre of entering the restaurant itself and the attention to our requirements from the first second to the last was impeccable. We opted for the tasting menu but selected our own wines. Every course exceeded expectations and was a wonderfully presented art work,... More

Upon our arrival the entrance hall was brilliantly decorated with Christmas trees and fake snow. We were taken to our table where a huge Christmas tree stood in the middle of the 2 dining areas on the first floor.The decor is very quirky brightly lit and considering the table are fairly close no intrusive noise from other tables. We went... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
