“You feel like you’re in Paris”, say devotees of this Knightsbridge fixture, who applaud its “seriously good bourgeois cooking” and “old-school” style; sagging survey ratings, however, support those who feel it’s “going downhill” – “fairly average” nowadays, and “pricey” too.
STOP PRESS: Jan 2015 - Henry Harris closes up shop after years of slippage in the survey from one of London’s best restaurants to somewhere starting to look middling. A new site is planned.

"Their daily lunch menu represents much better value. The private back room is uninspiring."

"Elegant, simple, with immaculate service and relaxed atmosphere, Racine is a great place to have a very special meal without feeling that people around you are making too much fuss.. Rabbit and steak as main course were nothing but perfect, and patee and smoked duck as starter were as good. Petit pot au chocolat (that was not that petit :) and prunes with vanilla cream were simple and elegant way to complete the meal as was the cheese platter served before them. Pity it is so far (SW3) from where we live (NW3) otherwise we would be going there more. A perfect neighbourhood restaurant, it is going an extra mile without trying too hard."

"Open on Sunday too – an extra good point for already favourite venue. A July Sunday evening was amazingly quiet, so less buzzy atmosphere. But the food was as classically good as ever – who needs molecules when calves' brains and sea trout are as good as this? Only complaint: wine list that's short on surprise and long on price"
