You cannot help being mesmerised by the adept cooking style of Arbutus located in Soho. The place is full of chatty and chirpy crowd of diners who fill the dining room. One can try delicacies such as Marseilles-style bouillabaisse or bavette of Scottish. The range of cosmopolitan wine is tempting.

    Sounds like a great roundup! I will definitely have to try these out when I visit London. I bet going to a Gordon Ramsey restaurant is a really interesting experience!

    been to most of these and would disagree on The Wolseley, very overpriced for mediocre food, Brasserie Zedel has a similar menu of equal quality at have the price and the room is of similar grandeur. For a very good dining experience head to The Ledbury

    London has some fantastic restaurants… I’d definitely have the Japanese restaurant Zuma on any list of “The Best…” though, along with Duck & Waffle… Two of my favourite dining experiences in the city.

    Definitely a great list, hope to try some of these one day. Food is my thing, so London will be my place for sure.
