Restaurant Reviews

Clos Maggiore

It’s no secret that the most romantic restaurant in London is regarded as Clos Maggiore, with a single room apparently potent enough to win this and other racier accolades.

Launceston Place

Deconstructed apple pie is as exquisite in presentation as it is in taste – a cube of baked custard provides creamy mouthfuls, reminiscent of the lightest of crème brulee.

Amaya

The open grill at Amaya is tantalising to watch, an unrestricted arena where unexpected tastes blend with traditional Indian cooking methods of tandoor, sigri and tawa.

Bocca Di Lupo

Dessert at Bocca Di Lupo in Soho is the rather naughty le palle del nonno, translated as ‘grandpa’s balls’, composed of deep-fried ricotta with specks of chocolate.

Bills

This chain of restaurants boasts an good back story, starting from a stand-alone grocers stall selling fresh fruit, homemade jams, olive oils and other charming condiments.
