It should go without saying that you would not choose this restaurant for 'value for money'. Its Michelin star, location and celebrity chef association reflect the quality you pay for. The whole experience was pain free, relaxing and tasty. Though some of the staff had very scripted descriptions of the dishes, their knowledge and understanding of each appeared flawless and...

It was a disaster for us from the beginning to the very sharp end ! We can say we have been and tick it off the list. They promised to spoil us "if we dared to try them again". No thank you ! Interesting ideas for dishes but alas unmemorable bar the fatty undercooked duck, unlike the dregs of wine... More

We booked this as a birthday treat but I was unsure - there are some excellent restaurants in London - Muranos etc. so before we went to Dinner, I was wavering as to whether it would be "our thing". No need to worry - from the moment we arrived, the service was exceptional - every member of staff smiles and... More

My expectations were high and I am happy to say that they were more than met. The food was just sensational. The flavours were so perfectly balanced - the horseradish cream in the Salamagundy was so good I wanted to lick the plate; the addition of smoked candied walnuts to the cheesecake dessert was just so clever and provided an...

Frogs legs that is. Lovely location on Hyde park and an attractive modern space. My partner and I ( wife!!!!, I mean wife. haven't quite got used to that yet) we were on our honeymoon and they certainly looked after us superbly. Look we all know what we are expecting from a Heston meal. An experience. On that front I... More

We ate here for our anniversary dinner, and having done all of Heston's other restaurants were expecting something from what had become 2 Michelin star restaurant very quickly. However, we left having enjoyed a lovely meal, but feeling underwhelmed. I started with the Meat Fruit, which was excellent and very inventive. My wife had the Chicken Oysters, which were also...

The atmosphere was surprisingly not too stuffy for a michelin star restaurant. Felt very comfortable and buzzy. The food was delicious, each course got better. I have to recommend the tipsy cake for dessert, it truly remains one of the most superb puddings I have ever tasted! Also for some fun order the ice cream, they make it in front... More

A highly anticipated trip to Heston was dampened by a somewhat ordinary main; chicken with lettuce. The starter (octopus) was stunningly flavorful. However, upon recommendation from the sommelier, I went with the chicken main and found it surprisingly bland. I'd have expected more from it.

The space is modern and sophisticated, full of beautiful people. Everything was perfect from the food to the service, but did not have many dishes with that alchemist magic featured usually by Blumental. But some were fantastic, loved the Meat Fruit and the Tipsy Cake. I also saw a machine pouring smoke into the room making ice cream cones. It... More
