Forget everything you THOUGHT you knew about food

The quality of the food is incredible. There is no doubt that Heston is one of the best chefs in the world in terms of creativity. The staff is attentive (though not intrusive). The waiter showed in-depth knowledge of the menu and also the methods used to prepare the meals. I was uncertain whether... read more

We had dinner here on May 13. Very nice welcome and seated directly by the window. Service personnel very young and enthusiastic. However, food was mediocre at best considering this place has 2 (!) Michelin stars and is charging you accordingly. Meat fruit which is their signature starter dish is nice to look at but rather bland in taste. Not... More

I am reviewing this restaurant in comparison to other restaurants of a similar standard. Yes, the food is cooked well, but that's about all it has going for it - the food is cooked well in any 2 star restaurant. What's is missing is creativity and inventiveness. Each dish tastes fine, but each is unremarkable and unmemorable. I felt that... More

It's not often you actually meet the famous chef who gives their name to a restaurant but today, Heston was on hand to come and share our experience and how we loved it all! From the welcoming and friendly staff to the ambience of the 'drinks parlour' where we had a bottle of champagne whilst waiting for our friends to... More

We went as a family to eat to celebrate our wedding anniversary as the baby was too little to leave. Initially everything was fine until we were moved when the baby started whinging a bit. Very quickly we were offered a private room (a very austere dining room) so we 'didn't have to worry about the baby too much'. Felt... More

After having eaten at the Fat Duck a few years ago it was with great intrepidation that we booked at Dinner expecting the same type of service or meal. We got neither! The service was totally different but totally suited to the type of situation that we now found ourselves experiencing. The sommelier (Stephan) is a absolute artist and is... More

I was taken here for my birthday and enjoyed a lovely lunch. The menu is inspired by a historical look at food with each item having a year and bit of an explanation as to it's origin in the menu. The service was impeccable with the menu being fully explained, dishing being recommended & instruction on how best to enjoy... More

I had a small private business dinner that was hosted here for a high level business dinner. It was beyond excellent. I have never received so many "thank you" emails for an event the next day. Every single person was impressed and all of them had such a different range of likes/dislikes. The service staff and manager were fantastic and... 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.
