International Restaurants in London
1. The Stonhouse International restaurant in Clapham 165 Stonhouse St - SW4
“Bright and airy”, traditional-ish gastroboozer (plus garden), off Clapham High Street, “reliably serving good food” (if not of a particularly ‘gourmet’ variety).
2. The American Bar International restaurant in St James's 16 - 18 Saint James's Place - SW1A
“The beautiful cocktails are the best” at this plush and cosy hideaway, at the end of a St James’s mews. Foodwise, there’s a Mediterranean-inspired brasserie menu, or hold out for the summer BBQs in the courtyard.
3. 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”.
4. The Kensington Wine Rooms International restaurant in Kensington 127-129 Kensington Church St - W8
Forty wines by the glass, and 150 by the bottle are the main ‘gourmet’ attraction at this modern wine bar, near Notting Hill Gate (which, over the years, has added siblings in Fulham and Brackenbury Village). To accompany the liquid refreshment, there’s substantial fare like steaks and seared fish, or you can stick to the “great bar platters”.
5. TING International restaurant in London Bridge Level 35, 31 St Thomas St - SE1
“The view’s the thing” at this 35th-floor all-day restaurant and lounge in The Shard, with 360-degree vistas over London and the Home Counties – “including from the loos!”. Some reporters also rate the “well-presented and thoughtful menu”, which they say contributes to “a fantastic experience”. Sceptics, though, reckon the “food is so-so, service patronising, the bill eye-watering: strictly for well-heeled tourists!”.
6. Salut International restaurant in Islington 412 Essex Road - N1
Tiny Canonbury fixture, with “a small but perfectly formed menu” of ambitious modern European dishes, prepared in an open kitchen – “wonderful, well-flavoured, light cooking”, from “the amazing roast potatoes to the soups and everything in between”.
7. The Yellow House International restaurant in Surrey Quays 126 Lower Rd - SE16
“We’re so lucky this place exists, in SE16 of all places!” – so says a local fan of this oasis in the culinary badlands surrounding Surrey Quays Station. Wood-fired pizza is a highpoint on the wide-ranging and “affordably priced” menu.
8. Cambridge Street International restaurant in Pimlico 52 Cambridge St - SW1
This “fun” all-day haunt in an otherwise dull corner of Pimlico has “all the on-trend gastropub menu options you could hope for, but everything is done really well for once”. It makes “the perfect breakfast/brunch spot” – when “trade can be manic”.
9. The Savoy Hotel, Thames Foyer Afternoon tea restaurant in Covent Garden The Savoy, The Strand - WC2R
For a “lovely afternoon tea” and “a truly elegant experience” there’s much to recommend the light-filled foyer of this posh hotel lounge (set beneath a glass dome). “The price is eye-watering but seconds are regularly provided, so it’s actually good value for the amazing experience”. Breakfast here is also “a gorgeous start to the day”.
10. Arthur Hooper's International restaurant in London Bridge 8 Stoney St - SE1
“Brilliant value… market bustle… great modern menu – we love it”, declare fans of this “upmarket” wine bar with (mainly Italian) small plates – “another good option for a great tapas meal in Borough Market”. It took the name of the greengrocer who previously occupied the site.
