Excellent! On point on all fronts

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal lived up to expectation on all fronts. The restaurant is attractive. The service is spot on - not too pushy but there when you need anything. The place isn't too pretentious. The food delivers. Excellent interpretations of very classical dishes. This place will... read more

Everything we expected from a top chef. The menu was very exciting and exquisitely crafted, and although not every course was to my taste, it was a bit like going round the Tate Gallery - you didn't have to like everything to appreciate the skill and artistry involved. The staff were just brilliant, and shared an enormous enthusiasm for the... More

This restaurant was quite nice but you can get better value for money elsewhere. I had a steak and triple cooked chips which were both good. However I think you can get better steak in other places for a much cheaper price. The experience was nice for a special occasion but because of the price I won't be going back... More

For a historian who loves food, they don't come more geeky and tasty than Dinner at Heston Blumenthal. The revered chef's restaurant in the heart of Knightsbridge is a great place to try his take on food steeped in Britain's rich culinary history. We went to Dinner by Heston to celebrate my birthday and it was a great experience all... More

Seriously, seriously thee best food I have ever tasted and I've been to a few Michelin star joints since - none have lived up to this first experience. The waiters are super on the ball, but not in your face. I went to the bathroom 3 times (a result of a few beers in the wait for our reservation time)... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from a celebrity chef's restaurant but my husband really wanted to go. The restaurant is situated in the beautiful Mandarin Oriental hotel building, which is spectacular at night. From the minute we arrived I was blown away by the incredible setting, service and food. Would highly recommend the 'meat fruit' as an entree. It... More

Had lunch alone due to being alone on business. I heard a great deal about the restaurant and have been following Heston for several years. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is very attentive. I ordered from the a la carte menu. Started with the meat fruit which i think is the restaurants most famous dish. Maybe because i...

We were visiting London in June 2015 and this restaurant was on our list being one of the best restaurants in the world and after seeing Heston Blumenthal on Masterchef Australia and his other shows. We are really happy that we went there. We had the set lunch, which is kind of a preview of what they have in store... More

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.
