“Spectacular setting and superb cuisine” – not, in truth, what you might expect in a “plush” five-star popular with City expense-accounters, but what is delivered by the Pic family’s admirable dining room, within the majestic building that was once the HQ of the Port of London Authority. “The cookery is on another level – it’s beguiling and enchanting with perfume-like layers of aromas and flavours that show the most delicate touch and incredible execution”: some of the most highly rated in London. Service, meanwhile, is “refined” but “friendly” and the grand setting “manages to feel relaxed and modern whilst being a temple of excellence”. The bill is gargantuan, but nobody seems to mind.

“A truly world-class representative of London dining” – the Pic family’s “plush” three-year-old, within a monumental five-star hotel (the Port of London Authority’s former HQ), provides a “stunning-if-pricey” destination that nowadays ranks in London’s culinary top tier; and its heart-of-the-city location by Tower Hill makes it a natural for wining and dining particularly important prospects. The “calm, white-walled dining room” provides a “chic” and “beautiful” setting for a meal, service is “attentive but un-pushy”, but its highest rated feature is its “sensational”, “superbly refined” modern French cuisine.

“Amazing food with amazing attention to detail”, backed up by a formidable wine list, have made this “glossy” yearling, within the palatial ex-HQ of the Port of London Authority (by the Tower of London), a “superb addition to London’s top-rank restaurants” and a feather-in-the-cap for the Pic family (from Valence, in SE France) who run it. As an imposing backdrop to a business meal it’s particularly well-suited, but other diners are a bit unsure about the design: “it can seem a little disjointed with different styles and spaces, one part modern with white tiles, another Art Deco with black mirrors and banquettes – this doesn’t spoil the experience but could have enhanced it further”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
