Featured Belgravia Restaurants
1. Ametsa at COMO The Halkin Spanish restaurant in Belgravia 5 Halkin St - SW1
Notable for its associations with San Sebastian superstar chef Arzak, this hotel dining room, a chic-but-austere space near Belgrave Square, suffers from a “disappointing lack of atmosphere” (just like its predecessor, Nahm, long RIP). Opened with great fanfare five years ago, its highly ambitious Basque-inspired cuisine has never really won it the reputation anticipated for it on opening, but gradually improving ratings year-by-year suggest that it shouldn’t be written off, and that the tyre men were wrong to deprive Ruben Briones of his star last October. “Having been with different friends, we realise it is not to everyone’s taste, but we love offbeat elements throughout the menu, and everything looks so beautiful. They lost their Michelin star but we think the food is better than ever”.
2. Motcombs International restaurant in Belgravia 26 Motcomb St - SW1
One of Belgravia’s favourite neighbourhood restaurants and brasseries, Motcombs is a wonderful British affair situated just metres from the bustling shops of Sloane Street. A warm, inviting ambience is combined with classical, chic styling and slick but friendly service. Enjoy a ...
3. Noura Lebanese restaurant in Belgravia 16 Hobart Pl - SW1
LOCATED IN THE HEART OF BELGRAVIA… A FEW STONES AWAY FROM BUCKINGHAM PALACEEvery Noura experience is one that avoids repetition without sacrificing consistency in excellence. This is why our loyal client base spans generations. Nader’s favourite Hobart Plac...
4. The Dining Room, The Goring Hotel British, Traditional restaurant in Belgravia 15 Beeston Pl - SW1
“Still glowing from its Royal Wedding connection” (and nowadays with a Royal Warrant to show for it) – this once-sleepy, nowadays increasingly fashionable, traditional British five-star hotel is situated conveniently behind Buck House. Established in 1910, it is still run by the Goring family, who have been investing heavily of late, with the creation of Siren (see also) and the recent relaunch of the hotel’s bar. Its “delightfully old-school” dining room is a “perennial stalwart”, whose “quintessentially-British menu” was slightly bizarrely starred by Michelin a few years ago. That’s not to say that the cooking is not “traditional and of high quality”, but the real reason why this is the perfect venue for lunching your maiden aunt or “wowing visiting prospective clients” isn’t the food, but its “impeccable”, “old-fashioned” service and the “impressive surroundings” of this “light, elegant and high-ceilinged” chamber (whose “roomy tables allow for serious business discussions”). No surprise that prices are a tad “steep”. Top Tip – afternoon tea in the adjoining lounge can be “crowded” but otherwise is as it would be done by Disney – “like a fantasy step back in time” – “we went wild for the sandwiches and scones which were offered in abundance!”
5. Amaya Indian restaurant in Belgravia Halkin Arcade, 19 Motcomb St - SW1
“Cracking Indian fine dining with-a-twist” is to be had at this “congenial” and moodily “cavernous” Belgravia fusion-venture (under the same ownership as Chutney Mary and Veeraswamy). The tapas-style dishes, prepared in an open kitchen over the grill, deliver “vibrant” and “fabulous flavours”, and rank amongst London’s very best. Overall, it’s “a bit expensive”, but a “super, super, super-lovely experience”.
6. Il Convivio Italian restaurant in Belgravia 143 Ebury St - SW1
This longstanding “local gem” in Belgravia is a “properly Italian restaurant”. Currently on great form under chef Cedric Leri, “the food is better than ever, the service ever delightful, the room continues to please” – but “it’s rarely full, which is an eternal mystery”.
7. The Jones Family Kitchen British, Modern restaurant in Belgravia 7-8 Eccleston Yard - SW1W
“The best beef in the area (Belgravia/Pimlico)... nuff said” – this “shiny”, year-old sibling to Shoreditch’s Jones Family Project is part of the “beautiful” Eccleston Yards courtyard development: “a fantastic addition to SW1” that doesn’t feel at all like somewhere around the corner from Victoria Coach Station. As well as steak, it features a fairly broad selection of modern British brasserie fare (including plenty of fish), much of it from the Josper charcoal oven; plus a decent list of cocktails and wine. Top Tip – for coeliacs there’s a dedicated gluten-free menu.
8. The Thomas Cubitt British, Modern restaurant in Belgravia 44 Elizabeth St - SW1
On Belgravia’s smart Elizabeth Street, this “bright and airy” destination is “more decent-restaurant than good-gastropub” with its “accomplished cooking” and “light” first-floor dining room.
9. The Alfred Tennyson British, Modern restaurant in Belgravia 10 Motcomb Street - SW1
Smartly kitted-out and scenically located Belgravia pub, originally launched (under the same owners) as the Pantechnicon Dining Rooms, with a happening ground-floor bar and less frenetic first-floor dining room. Upstairs in particular, the quality of the fit-out is much plusher than your typical corner-boozer.
10. Oliveto Pizza restaurant in Belgravia 49 Elizabeth Street - SW1
“Loud without being unpleasant”, this “cheerful and buzzy” Sardinian has been a Belgravia stalwart for many years – “my son spent his formative years coming back to this place because of the huge and excellent pizzas” (and the repertoire also includes pasta and salads). Older regulars are more enamoured of the “interesting Italian/Sardinian wine list”.
