There wasn't a huge amount of atmosphere when we arrived. But we soon got it going, probably to the chagrin of some of the regulars. Cracking place though, food was excellent, and staff were tolerant. Big menu, like the Ivy, and plenty that appealed. Prawn starter was excellent, which a spicy sauce. Steak and chips similarly so, nothing remarkable except... More

I don't know what it is about this place that I love so much but for me it is the one i will always go back to. I have a lot of happy memories here and the fact that you can dress up, have a drink in the Ritz before dinner and eat listening to a pianist just does it... More

The final lunch before heading home. I expect the best and Le Caprice always delivers, shame the seared tuna, starter, was not on the menu but the salmon and yellowtail tuna sushi more than made up for my expected choice, superb! I just love this resturant, my last meeting was at the Royal Oversea league so a short hop up... More

Since the mid 1970's we have gone to this restaurant on our annual or semi-annual London visits but at least once a year in any case. The food is good but never bad, the service always good the ambience unbeatable. I believe the restaurant changed hands several years ago, and our only complaint is the similarity of menus at their... More

This was my third visit to Le Caprice and it was as wonderful as always. I booked on the day and was surprised to get a table for the Saturday evening as before I've always had to sit at the bar because it's so popular. Sitting at the bar is great fun but not as intimate as a table if... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
