Breaking news

December 2020:  Jesus Adorno, Director and famous MD, has left having worked at Le Caprice since it opened in 1981. He really "made the place" and could have helped seal the transfer to a new location. With his departure, it will be a bigger challenge to recreate the heart and soul of the old venture somewhere new… perhaps not what Richard Caring has in mind anyway?

June 2020: although not explicitly linked to the C-19 pandemic, the closure of this legendary restaurant was announced during lockdown. There are, apparently, "early plans" for a relocation.

February 2020:  Caprice Holdings is re-branding the Mayfair Garden site it bought in 2016, in order to open the first of a spin-off chain of Le Caprice, which has already worked successfully for The Ivy. As at February 2020, there's still no sign of an opening date.

For 33 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).

"Great news that Jesus Adorno returns When I first went there decades ago, without a reservation, he behaved as if it were his fault that he didn’t immediately have a table"
