Summary

“You feel like you are ‘somebody’ on walking in, and the gloss stays with you for a while after you leave” at Richard Caring’s “legendary” Mayfair veteran (007’s favourite lunch spot), whose “classically elegant” interior “oozes class”, and where “every table looks like they’re famous”. On the menu – “sensational”, “classic fish dishes” and “some of the best seafood in London” – indeed, only Sheekey’s keeps it from being voted London’s best in that department (although, unlike its stablemate, here “tables are far enough apart for business”). All this “glam, glam, glam” comes with a slight edge, though: in particular, the “very professional” service “can come with an attitude that matches the A-list clientele”.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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.
