We have been to a number of Lebanese restaurants in London and it would be fair to say that this is not set up in appearance as particularly Lebanese. It could be any type of restaurant with nice white clothed tables. There are a few...More

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw
