“Incredible, beautiful fish is displayed on ice and hosed down every five minutes for freshness” at this splendid St James’s outpost of Costas Spiladis’s glamorous Greek-based international chain. “Given the eye-watering prices”, it’s “a place for a special occasion”, but if you’re wallet is deep enough, it does deliver: “the food is memorably good”, “service is silky smooth” and the interior design (complete with imported marble) is impressive (if, perhaps, “slightly cold”).

A “glamorous feel that befits the location in St James’s” – complete with white marble from mountains near Athens! – infuses this “buzzy” and “noisy” London outpost of Costas Spiladis’s ritzily international Greek seafood chain. The “nosebleed prices for its delicious fresh fish” do nothing to deter the crowd – “it’s a big restaurant, but whenever I go there isn’t an empty table”. The centrepiece is a counter display of “super fish”“perfect for the choosing side of things with people who know what they’re talking about”. Top Tip: “the lunchtime menu is a real bargain”.

“The most beautiful fish counter ever” is the dramatic centrepiece of Costas Spiladis’s “classy” five-year-old (part of an LA, Miami, etc international group), and – with its “roomy” quarters clad in white marble sourced from mountains outside Athens – it brings a “glammed up Greek atmosphere” to the fringe of St James’s. Its fans extol “the best fish in London” and gorgeous seafood that’s “second to none”, but sceptics caution that “it’s priced so that only oligarchs can afford to eat it”, and to an extent that can seem “extortionate”. Post pandemic, they will now deliver if you live within 3 miles of St James’s.

“The most beautiful fish counter ever” is the dramatic centrepiece of Costas Spiladis’s “classy” four-year-old (part of an LA, Miami, etc international group), and – with its “roomy” quarters clad in white marble sourced from mountains outside Athens – it brings a “glammed up Greek atmosphere” to the fringe of St James’s. Its fans extol “the best fish in London” and gorgeous seafood that’s “second to none”, but sceptics caution that “it’s priced so that only oligarchs can afford to eat it”, and to an extent that can seem “extortionate”. Top Tip – by contrast, lunch and pre-theatre deals represent “incredible value”.

For 32 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).
