“Determinedly old-school” – this “lively”, former A-list brasserie near The Ritz was opened by the legendary Peter Langan in partnership with Michael Caine in 1976. To true believers – the firm majority of its clientele – it’s “an institution that always performs” and “great fun for a business meal in a boisterous setting (even if the bill ends up at more than expected… but that’s life when the wine flows)”. Others, though, complain of “classics done with not quite enough panache or vibrancy”, and see it as “an out-of-towners kind of place harking back to the good old days when Mr L was about. He isn’t and it’s a shadow of its former self”.

“Why change a winning formula” is the view of the many fans who “just love” this famous brasserie near The Ritz (many of whom are old enough to remember when it was opened by Peter Langan, in partnership with Michael Caine, in 1976): they say, “it’s not the best, nor the coolest, nor the fanciest, but my favourite, with a brilliant atmosphere”. The only dispute relates to its “retro”, “classic” cuisine, which fans feel is “always predictable (in a good way)” and which critics dismiss as “churned out and very average”. It’s particularly recommended as being “great for business”.

“Like an old pair of slippers, you just feel comfortable with!” – this famous and “fun” brasserie near The Ritz, celebrating its 40th year, remains, for its older fan club, “something magical, steeped in gastronomic history, and never failing to impress”. The less rose-tinted view is that it looks “tired” and serves “nursery food gone wrong”.

“I’ve been going for 38 years and it still delivers...”: a typical recommendation for this famous brasserie near The Ritz, whose “wonderful rooms are filled with plenty of character”, and which particularly suit a business occasion. Sceptics, though, can find it even “more old school than expected”“very masculine, with lots of boys-only tables, and comfort food” – and its harshest critics feel its “poor” catering standards put it “in dire need of a makeover/relaunch”.
