1. Kaspar's Seafood and Grill, The Savoy Hotel Fish & seafood restaurant in Strand 100 The Strand - WC2
KICK BACK AND RELAX AT KASPAR’S
THE SAVOY’S SEAFOOD BAR AND GRILL RESTAURANT
Kaspar’s Seafood Bar and Grill takes London’s diners back to the heyday of the jazz age. Art Deco finishes of mirror and cut-glass fashion a restaurant full of elegance and light. Kaspar’s dec...
2. Gordon’s Wine Bar International restaurant in Strand 47 Villiers St - WC2
Just about everyone in London has supped a glass of vino at one time or another at this “one-of-a-kind” ancient wine bar, by Embankment tube; the food – cheese, cold cuts, hot dishes, salads – is “nothing special”, but the cave-like interior is “amazing”, and it has one of the West End’s nicest (and biggest) outdoor terraces.
3. The Savoy Hotel, Savoy Grill British, Traditional restaurant in Strand Strand - WC2
This “impressive” panelled chamber – once London’s pre-eminent power-dining scene – still looks the part, and can still deliver some “accomplished” traditional British cuisine; prices are “ridiculous” however, especially given the fairly “unimaginative” repertoire.
4. Lupita Mexican/TexMex restaurant in Strand 13-15 Villiers St - WC2
For a “snappy” bite right in the heart of town – an “unpretentious and good value” Mexican, with “unusual” and “authentic” dishes – a “surprise find” in the grungy, touristy environs of Charing Cross station.
5. Fernandez & Wells Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in Strand Somerset Hs, Strand - WC2
“Consistently terrific coffee”, and “wonderful sarnies, pastries and cakes” distinguish these “quirky, if not comfy” cafés; Somerset House is its most striking outlet, and the tiny Soho ones are good too – South Ken seems more of a “rip off”, with staff who are “too cool to care”.
6. Tom’s Kitchen, Somerset House British, Modern restaurant in Strand 150 Strand - WC2
“They need to up their game” at Tom Aikens’s supposedly upmarket, casual bistro chain – with its “disorganised” service, “hit-and-miss” cooking and “lack of ambience”, it’s just “all a bit ordinary”.
7. Simpsons-in-the-Strand British, Traditional restaurant in Strand 100 Strand - WC2
“Pity the tourists who go believing it's the home of real English cooking!” – this famous temple to Roast Beef is “a shadow of its former self”, with “sloppy” staff serving “school dinners” in a “gloomy” chamber; for a business breakfast, it’s just about tolerable.
8. Bedford & Strand International restaurant in Strand 1a Bedford St - WC2
2014 Review: Handily located just off the Strand, a sometimes “noisy” basement offering “good food, for what’s basically a wine bar”; “nice staff” too.
