"Although we must have been the last people to arrive (21:30 booking!) there was definitely no sign of a let up in the service or food department. Wonderfully enthusiastic staff and super tasty food. Book WELL IN ADVANCE!!!"

"Great atmosphere: the food looked great but did not deliver to the same level. Disappointed that one staff member faced with the cheese board could only tell us that there was a blue, a cheddar and another....duh!"

"There are restaurants where you pay the bill and weigh up whether it was value for money, and there are others where you leave with a contented smile on your face just congratulating yourself on having made such a good choice for a meal, and as we rushed through the deluge from the restaurant door to the taxi we were already agreeing that The Greenhouse is unquestionably one of the latter. An oasis of quiet in busy Mayfair, the dining room is clean-cut and decorated in an unfussy manner although with an eye to detail, such as the individual mini-sculptures on each table and the display of decanters, the smooth service is perfectly balanced between formal and relaxed, the excellent sommelier is full of nice touches and clearly not one of those who feels threatened by any customer with some knowledge of what he is drinking, and the staff in general demonstrated a surprising understanding of the English sense of humour. The impression is that this all stems from the chef, the talented Arnaud Bignon, whose classical yet innovative cooking completes the impressive experience. There was a choice of two tasting menus, and given that one of them listed three of our top favourites for the first three courses there was little argument about which to take. Interestingly, there was also a choice of wine pairings, a 'modern' with wines from a number of countries and a 'classic' with just French sources. My wife selected the modern as it was one glass lighter, and for me the classic announced itself as one of the best I've had anywhere, from Krug to Ch Rieussec via Fèvre Grand Cru Chablis, Zind Humbrecht Rangen de Thann Riesling, Liger-Belair Moulin-à-Vent and Domaine de Trévallon. Hors classe! Three types of home-made bread were served and the olive version was so good we talked about taking some home. Very good canapés followed, smoked beef tartare with anchovy, quinoa crisp and crème fraîche with a sprinkle of dill powder, and a carrot mousse-filled tartelette spiked with coriander. Just the job to set up the palate for the first course, we thought. But not so - another canapé arrived sporting apple foam with chunks of green apple, avocado, lemon grass and radish, which definitely stimulated our appetites and our anticipation of the dishes to come, and we still hadn't got to the amuse-bouche, which added a further favourite to the meal - chef's signature dish of lovely picked crab beneath cauliflower purée and mint jelly with a green apple espuma and spices which started quite neutrally but quickly all the tastes came together in one delicious whole and made a mind-blowing match with the Krug. On then to the first starter, a generous serving of top-class scallops enhanced by yuzu, verbena oil, samphire and green zebra tomato seeds. We never need any encouragement to dive into lobster, but sometimes an intelligent tweak to its natural attractiveness can make it quite heavenly, and chef had certainly done it with the unexpected addition of lime-marinated watermelon, a fantastic satay sauce and an imaginative peanut coating on some of the lobster. Winning dishes just kept on coming, the luscious poached wild turbot not only melting in the mouth but also releasing the proper freshness of taste sometimes missing in other eateries, and served with an amusing cauliflower purée looking like a half-moon crisp on the plate and matched with matcha tea powder, chives and a tricksy lemon hollandaise. Despite the claims made for English rose veal, a good number of the chefs that we've spoken to tend to source their veal from France, and so it was here. You can see why when you get such delicately flavoured, perfectly textured meat as we were treated to, with a background of tamarind and a pea purée and a decorative light pastry pyramid containing Provola cheese giving an extra dimension to the dish. A pre-dessert is always a good idea, and in many restaurants the peach sorbet with peach segments in a rose petal and pepper sauce would be counted as a full-on dessert in itself; here, though, it was merely a prelude to the suite of flavours delivered by a super matcha tea panna cotta on a white chocolate disc, little wild strawberries, a yuzu sauce and green-coloured chocolate sticklet ornamenting the rim of the dish. Sweet extras, including frozen mojito, strawberry choux pastries and sablé Breton followed and, with good coffee, were supplemented with salt caramel, hazelnut praline and very light pepper chocolates. A memorable experience that we will surely repeat in the not-too-distant future."

"As a Dad of two little girls this place is simply superb. You don't feel uncomfortable in any way and you know the food will be fresh and reasonably healthy. The staff are a pleasure and genuinely make you feel welcome. I'd always recommend Wagamamas to anyone and even more so to anyone with young children."

"Unique little indian tucked away south of the river in little Portugal. Bright and spicy flavours and some unusual options on the menu. Very friendly owner and staff. Its dance music a welcome change from the usual sitar-strummer-tunes. Well worth the detour."

Storeys ROOF smallTaking place on the roof of one of West London’s most iconic buildings this summer is Storeys – a pop-up food experience from event production company Afternoon Delight LDN. Launching on 31 July, it can be found on top of the former Beeb Car Park at Television Centre in White City from Friday-Sunday.


Storeys will feature a summer terrace and artwork, as well as some of the UK’s best street food traders. Head down there and find: French-American fusion wizards Le Bun, White Men Can’t Jerk (Carribean street food with a twist), Crabbieshack (soft-shell Folkestone crab burgers) Randy’s Wing Bar (buffalo wings and homemade hot sauce), En Brochette, Aji Ceviche (fresh Peruvian ceviche and anticuchos) and more.


There will also be a plethora of bars serving Bloody Marys to go with your weekend brunch or rum cocktails from the Rum Shack, while tropical fruit sharers, beer and more will be available from the TV Bar.


Doors will open from 5pm on Fridays and from 11am on weekends, with daytime game areas and DJs playing into the evening. Regular outdoor film screenings will be held, and on Saturdays early birds can try rooftop yoga sessions hosted by Serene Social.
