Featured Knightsbridge Restaurants
French restaurant in Knightsbridge
1 Kinnerton St - SW1
With its “stunning” cuisine, “wine list that reads like War & Peace”, “caring and attentive” staff and “beautiful” interior (arranged around a glass-walled wine vault), this luxurious Knightsbridge dining room is the only restaurant in Gordon Ramsay’s stable that lives up to his name nowadays, and on practically all reports is “a joy to visit”. Let’s hope new chef Russell Bateman, who joined in summer 2018, can keep up the good work.
Japanese restaurant in Knightsbridge
5 Raphael St - SW7
“It takes flak for being too showy”, and “can be a little over-run by glam types”, but “the foundations of this fun Knightsbridge scene are as appealing as ever – fantastic, innovative cuisine, welcoming service and a wonderful, vibrant atmosphere”. The Japanese-fusion dishes deliver “brilliant flavours”: “superb sashimi and black cod (although all the fish is amazing)” to “steak mains to die for”. “It’s been a favourite for over a decade now and still feels fresh.”
. Harry’s Dolce Vita
Italian restaurant in Knightsbridge
27-31 Basil Street - SW3
Near the back of Harrods, “the latest addition to the Caprice Holdings group” delights Knightsbridge shoppers and other denizens of SW3 with its “glamorous” decor and very “traditional” menu of cicchetti, pasta, pizze, risotti and grills. It inspired the odd gripe (“like a crowded train carriage”), but more common are raves for its “reasonably priced” fare (for the location) and slick service (“superb coffee too… the real McCoy, oh, and did I mention the olive oil!”). A new sibling – Harry’s Bar (see also) – opens in October 2018.
. Rivea, Bulgari Hotel
International restaurant in Knightsbridge
171 Knightsbridge - SW7
One of French superchef Alain Ducasse’s luxury London hotel venues (the others being in the Dorchester) – this luxurious Knightsbridge basement presents his take on the cuisine of the French and Italian Riviera. While there is fulsome praise for some “delightful food” including “among the best desserts in London”, some reporters expect to find more than merely “a reasonable all-rounder”.
. Zelman Meats
Steaks & grills restaurant in Knightsbridge
Harvey Nichols, Fifth Floor, 109-125 Knightsbridge - SW1
“BBQ in excelsis!” – Misha Zelman’s budget (well, by comparison to his Goodman’s group, anyway) small chain of funky steakhouses inspires nothing but high praise for its “flawless” steaks from a “short-but-interesting menu of cuts”, and “vibrant atmosphere”. Despite such consistently positive feedback, however, its new branch near the Old Bill proved shortlived, and closed in July 2018.
