Summary

“The river views are super if you’re lucky enough to get a table by the windows”, in The Savoy’s “plush, calm dining room, at the back of the hotel”, which many still recall as The Savoy River Restaurant. Most reports are of fish and seafood “to savour”, plus “expert service in beautiful surroundings”, although even fans can feel that “it’s quite a pricey treat”, and some sceptics say that, “while pleasant, standards are not as outstanding as you’d expect from The Savoy”. Perhaps its good ratings will improve even further with the July 2019 recruitment of Joost Bijster as head chef. Top Tip – head here for a “perfect breakfast”.

Summary

“An interesting menu with hints to the orient” is a feature of the fish and seafood cooking in this “splendid” dining room, known in decades past as The Savoy’s River Restaurant. Fans applaud its “breathtaking style and good cuisine” – including sushi, ceviche and laksa – but critics feel “they’ve ruined one of London’s best rooms with poor quality, pub-like food”“forgivable in a high-street restaurant, but not at The Savoy!”

Have you eaten at Kaspar's Seafood and Grill, The Savoy Hotel?

Owner's description

Provenance takes prominence within Kaspar’s at The Savoy with menus that showcase contemporary seasonal dishes from land and sea that capture the vibrancy of the natural landscape.

The restaurant’s dining experience evolves throughout the day, with informal lunches moving into elegant dinners, and a sense of theatre running through the service style that perfectly emulates the vibrant art deco inspired setting.

Champagne and seafood are served at a striking centrepiece bar with chefs stepping out of the kitchen for an interactive dining experience. An à la carte menu is refreshed almost monthly and features the likes of smoked mackerel from Fraserborough, Dover Sole from Cornwall and Lobster from Harris, to Ribeye from Cork, Oysters from Maldon, and King Crab from the Bering Sea.

Groups of up to 14 guests can also enjoy a private diner in Kaspar’s private dining room. 

Please note the menu and dishes are subject to change.
