The Wolsley is one of Londons most stylish casual dining experiences and great to meet special people in; dress smart and enjoy the splendour. Best food memory is the plate of London smoked salmon.

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

streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

Hi, we thought the portions were perfect for us as two ladies. I'm afraid I could'nt comment about splitting an order. Just had an amazing time and were so looked after.
