Description: Situated in the old Reuters office on London���s Fleet Street, Lutyens restaurant is a venture between Sir Terence Conran���s and Peter Prescott (of Albion and Boundary fame in Shoreditch). Great attention has been paid to the details at Lutyens and the dining room is an elegant space complete with sleek banquettes and crisp white linen. The white-on-white palette is a perfect backdrop for the artworks, some from Sir Terence���s own collection. The art Deco glamour of Lutyens��� bar and its seafood section are popular with post-work City slickers, while early risers often drop in for the full English breakfast. While French cuisine is what���s on offer, Chef David Burke has added an Irish flourish to the classic French brasserie menu where lobster mousse and Landaise chicken sit alongside pigs��� trotters and roast rabbit. The extensive wine list includes some excellent by-the-glass options and seafood lovers will love the glistening plateau de fruits de mer. At dinner, the great value Menu Compris at ��39.50 per person (includes three-course menu, plus a half bottle of wine, mineral water, coffee and petit fours) is also available. Dinner in the City doesn���t get better than this.

“Lovely service and atmosphere, excellent food!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We had a birthday dinner celebration for two on a Friday, taking advantage of the offer. The service from the start to finish was excellent. All the staff were friendly and not at all obtrusive. 5/5 for service that's for sure. The restaurant itself was not filled but it looked really well lit and lovely. We had the tasting menu which includes 5 dishes. The smoked eel which was amazing! rather small portions but you'd expect that do be having a full five courses, so, no complaints at all about that! lovely dish. This was followed by the artichokes and sea bass which was cooked very well indeed. The lamb was the best dish of a very good selection. We closed with the soufle which was a decent size, very well done although slightly sweet for me but I'm sure it'll appease a many. Overall, highly recommended and would definitely come again.

“Really good value for money”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Been there a couple of time for a drink but never for food. We decided last Friday to try the restaurant. The food and the service were excellent, and the best was the surprise with the bill as they are doing 50% on Friday which we didn't know. We will definitly come back, even during week days as it would have already been a good value for money even without the discount.
