Let me start by saying the only reason I didn't give full marks was that the tables were quite close together which is a particular gripe I have with restaurants. Very difficult not to overhear the people on the next table, which in turn means that they can hear you ~!!! Whinge over. Food was excellent, service very good. We... More

I have been meaning to try this restaurant for ages and found a perfect excuse to celebrate a special occasion with my sister. I had made an online reservation and had requested a secluded table at the back of the restaurant. My sister and I were extremely chuffed that the restaurant had managed to accommodate this request. The restaurant is... More

Yanks in Britain usually go through painful calculations when faced with eating in London. Not how much to tip--which is generally included--but what did that cost in dollars. Coming from a lesser currency, translating the prices is a mandatory reflex. After which you give a silent squeal at the realization of how much ordinary fare is available in London, at... More

Superb food in an unassuming location albeit on the Kings Road. Wonderful service, with an exceptional sommelier who guided us to two fabulous wines for a truly mixed bag of food choices we had made. I have recommended this place to all our friends ( having been introduced to,it by a chef friend who also rates this place highly). A... More

I enjoyed a business lunch in this charming and sedate restaurant in Chelsea. My sole was prepared to perfection and came with an assortement of al dente vegetables. The apricot ice cream with accompanying apricots was particularly nice. A bit pricey but a good choice at lunch time if you want to treat yourself.

I really enjoyed my lunch at Medlar. The food was of excellent quality and made even more appealing by the price (£35 for 3 courses on a Sunday)! The service was friendly and the most casual I've ever experienced for a michelin starred restaurant. I didn't give it 5* as it didn't come with the little touches and extras (no... More

For £45 the three courses you get are out of this world, unbelievable value for money for a Michelin starred restaurant (as some others you could be looking to spend £100). I had the crab ravioli, roast guinea fowl and passion fruit sorbet were all just unbelievable. You also get super yummy bread and chocolate truffles for afters. The restaurant... More

I cannot understand how this place has a Michelin star, it's quite surprising. Yes, it has a nice decor, quite interesting menu (mostly on paper, the delivery is not as brilliant), but that's it. The service is not consistent, the food is - I hate using this word, but it seems adequate here - OK, the ambiance is simply not... More

Unfortunately the standards have slipped tremendously over the years. Unable to live up to my first dazzling impression and I'm amazed that they still manage to attract a decent crowd. The foie gras was very weak in flavour and suspiciously buttery. This was accompanied by a gigantic and miserable looking brioche plus an uninspiring salad. The mains was no better;... More
