Hands down the best place for breakfast meetings in the West End if not all of London. Service is key and it is fast but never feels rushed.

I love the Wolseley more for the location and the setting than the food. The food is actually very correct, nothing is too special and nothing is wrong with it. The atmosphere is very elegant. It is a great place for business lunches if you...More

This is one of the most glamorous restaurants in London, just across the Ritz. You need to book a long time in advance and to respect the dress code. The location is very nice, but not perfect since it's very noisy and it's not fit...More

If you want to wow your visitors from out of town or just have a great lunch or dinner with a friend, this is the place to go - great food, staff, ambience and super spot for some people watching!

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

Not obligatory but this is a venue where you would look out of place in jeans and trainers. Smart casual I would say with or without a jacket. Hope this helps.
