“David Moore is an absolutely charming host” and – having kept his foodie temple in a Fitzrovia townhouse at the pinnacle of London’s dining scene for the last 30 years (he launched at roughly the same time as Harden’s) – “he certainly knows how to keep up with the times with his constantly evolving menu and restaurant offerings”, most notably of late, one of London’s most ambitious vegan menus. Head chef, Asimakis Chaniotis delivers “fascinating dishes with fabulous ingredients”“sheer class” – and there’s a heavyweight wine list “with some really interesting suggestions”. “The truly personal service seems unfazed by the stresses and shenanigans of recent times” and creates a “first class ambience” in the compact space.

David Moore’s illustrious Fitzrovian “continues to shine” under the tenure of head chef Asimakis Chaniotis, and this “elegant” townhouse remains one of London’s foremost temples of gastronomy. “Letting Chef Chaniotis take you through an evening with a custom tasting menu is second to none”“he really is a master of meat, but they have great vegetarian and vegan tasting menus too”, and “there’s always something new and exciting” to sample. “An impressive wine list and a great sommelier’s intelligent recommendations” complete the formula. The proportions of the building are not expansive, but tables are “well-spaced” and the overall experience is an “intimate” one.

“David Moore’s gastronomic home has stood the test of time through many chefs that have gone on to star elsewhere”. All reports on this “world-class” Fitzrovia townhouse agree that – with the help of Asimakis Chaniotis at the stoves (since October 2017) – “it is amazing how standards have been maintained” with “creative cuisine that’s delicious but not fussy”. “Friendly guidance from the knowledgeable and engaging sommelier” is another plus in navigating an “exceptional” wine list, with “interesting and well-priced vintages from unusual places”. Gripes about the ambience were largely absent this year, with typical feedback describing it as “always elegant, always stylish”. Top Tip: “the space at the front of the restaurant is more crowded – ask for the back room when booking”.

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).

"On the day it gives Core a pretty good run for the money - and you can get a table easier.. .Three decades of delivery shows and it moves with the times."

Reviewed 7 months, 9 days ago

"Had the 8 course tasting menu. Some Courses were absolutely stunning with a beautiful play of texture, balance, and execution. We were disappointed with the carbonara was not impressive. It was delicious and the pasta was beautifully cooked, but it did t feel elevated or creative like some of the other dishes. I really enjoyed the Jerusalem artichoke tiramisu and the pumpkin starter with a divine kombu broth"
