“Pascal Proyart continues to be the ‘King of Fish’ in London”, say fans of his Knightsbridge dining room, which despite its “totally depressing”, “hotel-foyer-style” ambience, has built a formidable reputation for “stunning” seafood and fish dishes. Its ratings came off the boil this year though, with some reports of “very good, certainly inventive food, but not quite the wizardry some people have described”.
“Off-the-charts-good” Breton fish cuisine makes Pascal Proyart’s Knightsbridge HQ “London’s best-kept secret for seafood”; there is, however, a catch – the hotel dining room it occupies is “absolutely ghastly”, with a “dead”, “business-lounge” ambience.
“Still London’s finest fish restaurant by a mile!”; this Knightsbridge hotel dining room may have “all the ambience of Davy Jones’s locker”, but Pascal Proyart’s Breton-based cuisine is without peer.
Is it “the best seafood in Europe”? Pascal Proyart “has a Midas touch with fish”, and his “tremendously imaginative” cuisine inspires foodie adulation for his Knightsbridge HQ; pity about the room, though – “a weird space in a weird building”, and “so soulless”.
