Jun Tanaka���s Pearl is one of London���s most glamorous dining rooms. From the moment you walk in, the restaurant exudes opulence with trails of hand-strung pearls, pearl chandeliers and walnut interior. An exquisite modern French menu changes seasonally and is complemented by the stunning surroundings of the restaurant. Pearl���s award-winning wine list features over 400 wines stored in the expertly crafted wine cellar. Set in the former banking halls of the Pearl Assurance company, Pearl was designed by internationally renowned United Designers with the brief to carry the heritage of the past into the future. Trails of hand-strung pearls, polished walnut surroundings and rare marble combine to give Pearl an air of opulence assured with unique table lighting and pearlescent leather upholsteries. Signature cocktails and martinis are placed on Mother of Pearl inlaid tables in the chic, vibrant bar, while two walnut booths offer private, intimate surroundings away from the main bar.

Strange Menu, Excellent Cocktails

The setting is interesting, if a little cluttered but all seems to fit within the theme the restaurant is going for and is certainly more chic than shabby on the shabby-chic scale. Cocktails were excellent and wine was reasonably priced. We were a party of three girlfriends and decided not to... read more

Nice atmosphere, nice cocktails, nicely presented but what a shame about the tasteless food. This restaurant is appealing to the eye but not to the taste buds or the wallet for that matter. The staff are friendly & hospitable and we were not rushed but the food was very disappointing. Not rushing back anytime soon.

Took my wife and 2 kids to this restaurant after reading great reviews on here. They did not disappoint at all. When we came in it was very quiet as we arrived at 6pm and this time the kitchen opens. We were seated promptly and the waitress was very helpful with the kids. We placed our orders and they made... More

The decor is completely eccentric and over the top glitzy kitsch - matching perfectly the glitzy kitsch attire of lovely birthday girl Sara. I love it! We (about 15 of us) were shown to a large table in an open-ended ante room for Sunday lunch… the space is divided up very cleverly. The cocktails look pretty good, although we didn't... More

My husband surprised me with reservations at Rock and Rose. It was a great experience with really good food and drinks. There are many different options on the menu, we started with sashimi and and calamari. Both were excellent. Then followed duck breast and gnocchi equally tasty. We shared a cheese platter for dessert and we were happy with that... More

Sashimi starter , crab timbale , honey glazed ribs , duck breast with Chinese baby mandarins .. Sublime .. And for dessert the sharing plate of four assorted desserts was just a fantastic... More

I've walked past this restaurant a number of times and really wanted to go. I'm a HUGE fan of Annies so knew this place would be right up my alley. I was right. I loved the cool quirky décor and busy vibe. Our waiter was ok. He went from being too helpful and in our face (constantly asking if we... More

Wonderful food and atmosphere....but such a shame that this lovely restaurant does not welcome a party of 10 people at 8pm and only offers 2 time slots of 6pm and 9pm, both of which are 'awkward' times to eat......to early and to late - My birthday celebrations will be at another restaurant this year...once you accommodate a more 'friendly' approach...
