Summary

“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!”

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”.

"Best seafood restaurant to go to. Never disappointing. You can also count on a good clientele to dine with. Their ceviche dish in the starters is highly recommended so are their fresh seafood mains."
