“Top notch - vraiment délicieux!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We have been to Whits quite a few times now and it is still the best quality to price ratio in London. This is where a perfidious English chef sources the best ingredients from France only to produce outstandingly good food that outdoes 99% of French restaurants (in fact our gourmet French visitor said it was the best meal he had ever had!). The snail and mushroom starter is an explosion of tastes and worth the trip alone in my book but really every dish is rich in taste, generously portioned and clearly made by a very talented chef. To try Whits is to love it.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I went to Whits on a Saturday evening, and if ever a restaurant gets it right, Whits definitely have.
The food is fantastic and Front of house is so relaxed but so professional. A little gem says all.

“Incredible food and service”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Amazing dining experience and relaxing night here with the family. Food was superb with great display and the waitress was extremely helpful.
The steak and lamb were delicious, but I preferred my sea bass with lobster and gnocchi that was above my expectations of flavor. The escargot was a great starter and the best I have had.

“Good food, location and service”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here and loved it. Food was very good, good portion sizes too. Service was excellent. Both partner and I loved it and would recommend to a friend and definitely go back again. Good value for money too, not over priced.

“Whits, not for Twits”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

We love Whits! 2 X Steak (Rib eye) & chips (hand cut) please. With an exciting mixed salad. The friendliest service, the most succulent, flavoursome steak, the snappiest attention to detail, the easiest ambience. We love it and we keep returning like no other restaurant that we ever went to. Some may last for five or six visits but Whits has lasted forever. Always superb in every respect.
A big thank you to Eva and Steve for all the effort that they put in to make this experience seem effortless. It's magic and, we love whits!
