International Restaurants in Greater London
1. Les 110 de Taillevent French restaurant in Marylebone 16 Cavendish Square - W1
“You will never get bored, although you might get drunk!” at this London scion of Paris’s famous Taillevent group, where “you can try 110 different types of superb wine by the glass”. Set in “an attractive former private banking hall” – on the opposite side of Cavendish Square from the back of Oxford Street’s John Lewis – its “staff are extremely well-drilled and make everything effortless and smooth”. However, “the total cost of a meal takes it out of brasserie territory”, while the “seasonal French cuisine”, though “enjoyable”, doesn’t always seem in keeping with the level of ambition that the final bill might imply.
2. Motcombs International restaurant in Belgravia 26 Motcomb St - SW1
2019 Review: Like many of its patrons, this stalwart wine bar (upstairs) and restaurant (downstairs) has long been ‘part of the furniture’ in the ever-more-chichi heart of Belgravia. It’s perennially been accused of somewhat “uninspired” fare, but – now under new ownership – fans feel that “even if the inimitable Mr Lawless has finally sold up, it remains good value in a top postcode”.
3. Bolton’s Italian restaurant in 13 Cullum St - EC3
At Bolton's restaurant our philosophy is simple, we are inspired by the finest, freshest ingredients and the most authentic vibrant flavours. In Italian our culinary style is called alla Casalinga which means home-style cookery or as we like to say, "like mamma used to make."

5. Allora Hall International restaurant in Crouch End 2 Park Road - N8
From the same group as Canova Hall, Martello Hall et al, a new hot-desking space; the restaurant serves pizza, pasta and chicken, plus breakfasts, weekend brunch and plenty of choice for vegans.
6. Palais de Luxe at The Windmill Theatre International restaurant in Soho The Windmill Theatre, 17-19 Great Windmill Street - W1D
'Table Dancing' written in lurid neon is a nostalgic relic of sleazy ’70s sex shows, at this relaunched Soho icon, which has had a £10m revamp (including the neon signs). Now, this 350-seat venue is to become an ambitious multiplex, with shows in the main theatre, alongside upstairs and basement bars and private dining. At the stoves, Andrew McLeish, whose long CV most notably includes his long stint at Chapter One. A luxurious menu is planned (Dover sole, Wagyu sliders…)
7. Pergola on the Wharf International restaurant in Canary Wharf Crossrail Place Roof Garden, Crossrail Place - E14
Soft launching from 28 May, this new 'entertainment space' from the team behind Pergola Paddington, The Prince and Lost in Brixton with three bars and a dance floor will host food pop-ups throughout the year.
8. Tab X Tab International restaurant in Bayswater Westbourne House, 14-16 Westbourne Grove - W2
“The best coffee in town” is the claim made by fans of Mathew and Charmaine Tabatabai’s year-old Bayswater brew-stop, which – with Mavam espresso machine, BOCCA beans, partnership with Ozone coffee roasters, hand-made artisanal cups, yada, yada – is a perfect pitstop for caffeine junkies. It’s “a great hang out” too, though, serving simple salads, pancakes, eggs on toast…
9. Clos Maggiore French restaurant in Covent Garden 33 King St - WC2
“I saw a guy go down on bended knee to his girlfriend… she said yes!” This “luxurious and magical” haven – somewhat unexpectedly located “in the heart of Covent Garden” – continues to “live up to its reputation as the most romantic restaurant in London”, and “for a meal with that special someone, you won’t find much better”, especially if you can bag a table (book months in advance) for the “blossom-festooned conservatory” (which some reporters feel is essential to a successful visit; to others it’s merely “the icing on the cake”). Unusually for somewhere “oozing romance”, standards elsewhere “are not compromised to deliver a memorable experience”: “the food might not be the absolute pinnacle of modern British cuisine”, but “it’s more-than-competent” and “the star gourmet attraction is a wine list of almost biblical proportions”. Top Tip – “lunch/pre theatre set menus offer superb value for the excellent quality”.
10. Scully International restaurant in St James's 4 St James's Market - SW1Y
“Mind-blowing food” that’s “hard to classify” – “a true pot pourri of tastes from around the world using a cascade of daringly combined ingredients to create a theatrical experience for the eyes, and a surprising explosion for the taste buds” – is carving ever-wider culinary renown for Ramael Scully’s “exceptionally interesting” three-year-old in St James’s Market, whose kitchen is “really pushing the boundaries”. The room is “classy” too, and staff are “so extremely knowledgeable and helpful”. “The only downside is a crowd that’s a bit St James-y”. Top Tip – “sit at the counter, where talking to the chefs is a bonus”.
