A restaurant that possibly provides more sense of occasion than any other in London is now in its fifth decade, still firmly maintaining the standards of excellence which have seen it voted one of the world’s finest. The menu focuses on “utilising great ingredients in inspiring ways” ( with the cuisine being “proper old French” ( Chef de Cuisine Michel Roux Jr serves up the very best of haute cuisine and the impeccable service “runs like clockwork” (

The dining room has been criticised as being a bit old fashioned, but provides “comfort by the bucketload” ( with its “thick carpets, old-fashioned chairs & linen-clad tables” (square The décor is however overshadowed by the splendid food, with delights on offer such as hot foie gras and crispy duck pancake, roast milk fed lamb with flageolets beans, and langoustines and snails glazed in a light hollandaise. Located in posh Mayfair, this two Michelin-starred establishment requires a smart outfit to match.
