“Possibly the best all-round dining experience in London” – James Bond’s favourite lunch-spot remains, under Richard Caring’s ownership, a “sophisticated” Mayfair institution that’s “worth it if you can afford it” thanks to its “classic” seafood (it’s “a paradise for fish lovers”), “exemplary” service and “perfect atmosphere”. Its “effortless” style suits all occasions, but in particular it’s a “power-brokers’ favourite”.
“Impossibly glamorous” and “oozing class” – Richard Caring’s “sumptuous” Mayfair star-magnet “always creates a sense of occasion”. “Effortlessly polished” service provides “impeccable” fish and seafood (“so fresh it practically swims onto your plate!”) in an “understated” setting full of “old world charm”.
“For glam, glam, and more glam”, it’s hard to out-do Richard Caring’s “über-slick” Mayfair veteran – a “very grown-up” affair combining “expensive but lovely” fish and seafood and “always professional” service. It does attract the odd cynical report too though – in fact a few more this year than previously.
Richard Caring’s “stunning” Mayfair glamour-magnet “will leave your guest über-impressed” – it is “one of the slickest operations in London”, where the “confident” staff serve up “fresh interpretations of classic fish dishes” with “ease and efficiency”.
Scott’s Restaurant Diner Reviews
"An exceptionally pleasant simple meal"
"Classics are classics for a reason!"
"You feel you are somebody on walking in and the gloss stays with you for a while after you leave. Every table looks famous. The fish is exquisite and ambience to stay for."
"The seafood platter is still a must ! It's fresh, it's a nice atmosphere, it's worth coming back."
"First for us once again."
"We were guests at what may be termed an eloquent establishment. The menu is varied but atrociously expensive. Dinner took three hours and that was fine, as was the assortment of seafood. £33 for an average piece of haddock is a bit much. The wine and salad were ok, but what about an accompaniment for the fish. It was about fifteen years since our last visit and maybe another fifteen years for the next, G-d wiling."
"The "plateau de fruits de mer" is a Must !"
"busy popular but lacking personal service....excellent food...pricey"
