For those who have never been in one of these Relais de Venise, be aware that there is no menu apart for desserts. Any meat lover will like it for sure and the special sauce is great . Recommended dessert: profiteroles. Without taking wine, it...More

As previous reviews say, the idea behind this place is easy: steak ( in a good sauce) chips and wine. And we finished off with cheese. For me, you can't go wrong with that. No booking so worth getting to before the lunchtime rush at...More

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
