Great food, pleasant service

We went for 3 course lunch, which was excellently made and presented. We had the steak and the duck for mains, both beautifully cooked. Service was pleasant without being overly attentive. The only (very small) niggle we had was with the pudding. If you want the liquid nitrogen ice cream (made... read more

Left it really last minute to book dinner for my boyfriends birthday but the team at Dinner moved some stuff around and managed to fit us in. The food was incredible, although I was hoping for a bit more of the drama Heston is famed for. Anyone going should order the meat fruit-incredible! Reasonably priced wine just added to the... More

Absolutely delicious food and fantastic service. Friendly staff gave us a little history lesson on a few of the dishes. The meat fruit was incredible especially learning how it was made. Delicious roast halibut. Tried the tipsy cake. Wow. A meal we won't forget in a long time. Thank you.

Two friends and I went to Dinner By Heston to celebrate a birthday and it was a truly memorable experience. The Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge is a great hotel and the restaurant decor is amazing. We were given a table by the window with great views of both Hyde Park and the open plan kitchen. We each had one starter,... More

I waited a long time to venture here, a combination of the right occasion, budget (you do need to be able to come and not worry) and always enjoying a restaurant more once the hype has died down. From the moment we arrived until even now I an amazed at just how good the whole experience is. Rarely would an... More

This was our second visit to Dinner. The first, in June 2013, was a brilliant evening of great wine, knowledgeable service (including sommelier) and imaginative food. We also had the pleasure of talking with the then-manager, Paul Downie. That evening was clearly a brilliant, five star experience. We were excited to return on our next trip to London, because Dinner... More

After a disappointing start to the day yesterday when we arrived at the mandarin oriental only to find out that there had been a power cut in the restaurant and hence our booking was cancelled, we managed to get a lunch reservation the following day. I have to say we were far from disappointed. We were warmly greeted by the... More

Four of us had lunch here last week. Upon request, our waiter explained in detail how the amazing "Meaty Fruit" starter is made. I'm a pretty good cook but probably won't be attempting that one. All of the food was imaginative, made and presented beautifully, and the service was uniformly excellent. I thought both the food and the service were... More

If you can get past some of the trendier aspects of the Mandarin Oriental and its clientele, then do not miss Dinner! Be sure to try to the meat fruit!

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
