Great restaurant, but I cannot see that this should be the fifth best restaurant in the world. The starter (duck liver) and the dessert (bread soaked in Sauternes and other good stuff) were definitively the highlights of the evening. I was looking for a tasting menu, but there aren't any, which I think is a miss. Will definitively come back.

Since our last visit 'Dinner' has received 2 Michielin stars and is currently number 5 in the worlds best 50 restaurants.These are heady stats so we were keen to see the changes as we had initially been when it first opened 4 years ago. The room has stayed the same with lovely views of Hyde Park on a sunny spring... More

Dined For a Late Lunch as booking can be a premium. I felt like I was being rushed for some reason from the minute we got there. We were hounded for the food order before receiving a cocktail. Starters arrived with our cocktails barely touched. I kindly asked the Maitre d' to slow down at that point as we would... More

Had lunch at Dinner on our vacation to London in January 2015. The food quality was amazing but more importantly the staff was warm and welcoming. Given storied reputation of this level of establishment one would think it was stuffy, pretentious and not worth the effort... and you'd be really really wrong! Can hardly wait to return!

Our meal had been booked for months and after a day out at the football we were really looking forward to it. The hotel surroundings were suitably plush and the entrance to the restaurant itself had a lively feel. The reception staff were welcoming and conversational. We were escorted through the restaurant on a hike to our table and past... More

Dined here a few weekends ago for my Xmas present from my wife. Really looking forward to it as had heard really good things about it. The place was superb, service was amazing as it should be in a 2 star place. The food was so tasty, and presented simply but so full of flavour and the pork for main... More

As this was top of my restaurant bucket list, I had high expectations. Unfortunately they were not all met. I think the biggest let down was the lack of theatre and wizardry that you associate with Heston. The restaurant itself is beautiful and seductively lit. The waiter staff very professional, although hard to understand at times as they are mostly... More

Had dinner few days ago with business partners. The location is perfect, great atmosphere and the service is great from both the hotel and the restaurant staff. It's a two michelin star bistro food is out of this world and a lot of fun. Next time I will try lunch, only negative side there is no tasting menu.

Our expectations have been very high going to Heston's dinner as we have been to the Fat Duck before and were really blown away at that point. Now, for this one, and fully in line with other Heston experience I love the way that you do not need to dress up massively, everything is really about providing a great experience,... More

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.
