“Brilliant, beautifully presented combinations of fresh ingredients”, elegantly served “in a lovely space in Somerset House”, show a restaurant really hitting its stride – with chef Skye Gyngell now matching in central London the accolades she earned over a decade ago at Petersham Nurseries in Richmond, with “fabulous, simple Italian-themed food”. Top Tip: it’s a romantic venue, too: “recommended this restaurant to my son for an early date – he’s now happily married and we have a grandson!”

“A lovely use of a beautiful space”“with delicate light flowing in, and a cream-focused colour scheme” – this “open and airy room”, within magnificent Somerset House, properly “lives up to its name”, and “is the perfect setting for the light, fresh and wonderful dishes” created by Skye Gyngell from her “fine, seasonal” menu. That it’s “not cheap” is noted, but seldom with rancour. “Courteous service” completes a “superb” and “romantic” experience.

Within gorgeous Somerset House, this “elegant and light-filled dining room” makes “an exceptionally civilised place to eat”, and Skye Gyngell’s “enticing” menu of “delicate, seasonal and delicious” dishes, plus “charming service”, contribute to an “airy, fresh and delightful” experience that better fulfilled its promise this year as “one of the most impressive restaurants in this part of London”. In particular, it’s a romantic favourite: “I recommended it to my son for an early date, and now he’s marrying the lady concerned!”

For 31 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).
