* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Pure glamour” attaches to Richard Caring “really classy” and “sophisticated” Mayfair A-lister – 007’s favourite lunch spot – which is “an ideal place to go celeb spotting… if you’re into that kind of thing”. Culinarily speaking, it’s famous for its “spanking fresh” fish and seafood (and vies with its stablemate J Sheekey as the capital’s top venue for such specialities) although it also offers “enough meat choices to keep the carnivores happy”. In terms of style, it’s “smart” and quite “formal”, which – together with its “silky smooth service” and “well-spaced tables” – makes it an “impressive” choice for entertaining and “clients love it” (although, by the same token, “the room can be overrun with business suits”, especially at lunch, robbing it of some of its habitual sparkle). Top Tip – “the terrace tables are great, weather permitting!”

“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”.

“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”.

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).
