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”.

“David Moore runs a tight ship to maintain standards” and his “comfortable” Fitzrovia townhouse represents “perfection” for its many fans on account of its “unfailingly impressive” cuisine, “awesome” wines, and “good but not overly solicitous service”. There’s an undertow on ratings however, from sceptics who are slightly less wowed – they say “it’s not a bad place, but for these prices perhaps a bit, well… beige”. The griping is from a small minority though – overall this remains one of London’s highest-achieving foodie temples. (There has been a lot of change afoot here post-survey. Popular sommelier and co-owner Mathieu Germond announced he was to leave to establish nearby Noize, and in September 2017 chef Andy McFadden moved on, with Asimakis Chaniotis moving up within the ranks.)

For 30 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).

"We haven’t eaten here since lockdown and we’re pleased to see standards were even higher than on our last visit. Lovely, delicate tomato salad with lobster for starters, exceptionally tender & flavoursome lamb main course & inventive sweet. Very good value for a Michelin starred restaurant in London."

"Return for anniversary celebration. This time, we tried the lunch tasting menu of some 6 courses. Perfectly balanced, enough to enjoy but not too much. Great deserts. Sadly this is not a lunch time bargain any more but perhaps in time , it may return to that. "

"Brilliantly presented, well-executed food, a very interesting tasting menu, of which only one dish didn't shine taste-wise."
