Had late lunch at Dinner. (How often can you use that phrase?) Seats over looking Hyde Park, and a view of the glass enclosed kitchen. Starters included a little salmon and roe, we also had the liver pate encased in a jelly shell, and main dishes including cod in cider. Each dish came with nice sauces. All nice without any... More

We really enjoyed the dinner and would love to come again. However, for people who don't drink alcohol or need to drive, the soft drinks could really be improved! Come on, At least should have freshly squeezed orange juice. Food wise, having been to some of the most prestigious restaurants, this is quite reasonably priced for what it is. Can't... More

Classically British dishes with Heston's inimitable personal stamp. Put simply, the food looks and tastes outstanding, and the casual ambiance and mood of service is perfect for the restaurant's theme: a sideways glance at British cuisine. Highly recommend the Savoury Porridge, Meat Fruit to start and the Powdered Duck Breast or Chicken Cooked with Lettuces for main.

After hearing all the hype about this place, we decided to try it out when we were in London for a holiday. No regrets there! Everything from food to wine to service to ambience was spot on throughout our dining experience. The highlight of our meal was the Meat Fruit and Tipsy Cake. And if you're not stuffed after that,...

My husband and I visited Dinner this past weekend for our wedding anniversary lunch. Food was fantastic as always but I really have to emphasise how great the service is. This is my fourth-my husbands fifth- meal at this restaurant and we continue to return because we obviously love the food but also think the service is exceptional. This visit... More

We went as a party of 5 for Saturday lunch on the way to a theatre. We had been before as a party of 2 and found the service and the whole experience excellent. With a larger group maybe the staff have an in-built "give them more time" clock, but I felt services was less attentive and we had to... More

This restaurant does not disappoint if looking for something special. We went for my birthday and it was incredible. The staff were helpful and passionate, the food was amazing and the experience was fab. I have been wanting to eat at one of Heston's restaurants and I am so happy I have. The drinks were ridiculous as well, we had... More

I'm not a huge fan of restaurants in hotels, normally it blands the experience for me- not in this case. As you would expect from fine dining the service, presentation and atmosphere were all impeccable. The staff were fantastic and the concept of bringing back old recipes was a great experience. If you haven't been go.

This is English food, inspired by recipes that are literally centuries old. The meat fruit (liver pate in a mandarin jelly case) is incredible: smooth, creamy with a surprisingly subtle elegance as the tartness of the fruit gently cuts the pungency of the chicken liver. Crab loaf was excellent, soft and seasidey with freshness from cucumber jelly and saltiness from... 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.
