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

Part of Mourad Mazouz’s lavish Mayfair palazzo, this OTT favourite (the ‘cheap’ dining option here – see also Sketch, Lecture Room) is a perennial hit with a Zoolander-esque crowd keener on looking ‘really, really, really ridiculously good looking’ than on the eclectic cuisine, which is very expensive, and can seem like a case of “Emperor’s new clothes”. Who cares though? – with David Shrigley’s pinker-than-pink design-scheme it’s “an Instagrammer’s dream”, and who doesn’t want to have paid at least one visit to the egg-shaped loos?

The “pure opulence” of this Mayfair hangout for the art and fashion crowd – with David Shrigley’s “camp and ridiculous”, pink-walled contemporary baroque decor – makes it many fashionista’s “favourite, special place”. Foodwise, it’s “all very nice... but not really, at that price”. Top Tip: the whole point of a meal is the chance to visit the egg-shaped toilet pods.

“Everything from the David Shrigley sketches covering the candy-pink walls to the teacups are witty and whimsical” at this Mayfair fashionista favourite – and the famous egg-shaped pods in the “space-age loos” are “worth the queue” too. Was there something else? Ah yes, the food… “also completely OTT, and not in a good way, and eye-wateringly expensive with no reason to be”. Top Tip – the “fun-filled” afternoon tea.

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).
