5. Le Gavroche French restaurant in Mayfair 43 Upper Brook St - W1
Michel Roux’s “iconic” Mayfair bastion (est 1967, by his father Albert) provides a “flawless and indulgent” treat, wherein “psychic” staff deliver “elegant” French cuisine and a “wine-lover’s” list “full of gems”. That the basement setting looks “a little dated” is all part of the traditional charm, and the main man’s regular presence helps underpin “a truly magnificent experience”. Top Tip – “the best value set lunch ever”.
6. Gymkhana Indian restaurant in Mayfair 42 Albemarle St - W1
“Exceeding all my high expectations!” – this “delightfully cosseting” nouvelle Indian, near The Ritz, has quickly become one of London’s top destinations; “immensely flavourful”, “properly exquisite” dishes (plus “top quality cocktails” and “heroic wine matches”) are served, in a “quaint and exotic”, “faux-colonial” setting.
7. The Araki Japanese restaurant in Mayfair Unit 4 12 New Burlington St - W1
“The sushi is out-of-this-universe, but the prices are too” at this tiny Mayfair newcomer – by quite a margin the UK’s most expensive dining experience – where “as one of only 9 customers, the skill of Mitsuhiro Araki is fully on display for your personal benefit”; is it worth the mind-boggling cost? – to most of our reporters the answer is yes!
8. Scott’s Fish & seafood restaurant in Mayfair 20 Mount St - W1
“For glam, glam, and more glam”, it’s hard to out-do Richard Caring’s “über-slick” Mayfair veteran – a “very grown-up” affair combining “expensive but lovely” fish and seafood and “always professional” service. It does attract the odd cynical report too though – in fact a few more this year than previously.
9. Alyn Williams, Westbury Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Mayfair 37 Conduit St - W1
Alyn Williams’s “stunning” cuisine, along with notably “solicitous” service helps create a mightily “civilised” experience at this sleek – if slightly “muted” – hotel dining room, just off Bond Street. Top Menu Tip – “very good-value set lunch menu”.
10. The Wolseley British, Modern restaurant in Mayfair 160 Piccadilly - W1
“It should be a national monument!” – Corbin & King’s “tremendously atmospheric” (“mildly cacophonous”) European Grand Café by the Ritz has become a “perennial” linchpin of “glamorous” London life (“there’s always at least one A-list celeb eating at a nearby table!”). It’s the “fun and the buzz” that set it apart, however – the large Mittel-European menu is “very adaptable” but decidedly “not exciting” (even if “it does the best breakfast in town, bar none!”)
