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”.

“A fabulous selection of fresh fish on display to choose from” is the dramatic hallmark of Costas Spiladis’s “upscale Greek” in the West End (where you choose your fish and pay by weight). Its most ardent fans feel it “gives Scott’s a run for its money”, but even some who feel it has “the best fish, with the best fish chefs in town” still say it’s “pricey”: “bring your bank manager along with you, as they’ll need to extend your overdraft after eating here!”

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).
