Restaurants in London

What are suggestions on restaurants that I need to visit while spending 6 days in London? I am looking for 1 expensive meal ($100-$150) and reasonably priced placed for both lunch and dinner.

Thanks

You should give more information as to what you like/want to eat while in London - traditional? ethnic? etc.

I had a fabulous pheasant lunch at the Guinea Grill. It also is well known for its steak & kidney pie.

How about one of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants for your splurge meal? I think you could do it for $150 (though that's per person, not per couple) if you were careful with wine.

There are thousands of restaurants in London - you need to give us a bit of info before anyone can make any sort of recommendations.

What sort of food(s)? What sort of ambience?

And just to give you an idea $100 os about £53. W/ drinks, that would not be considered expensive in London.

It is estimated that if you were to visit every pub and restraunt in London for 10 mins it would tale 30yeas to complete the task so a little more detail is needed.

Eating at a good, but not superexpensive restaurant in the West End can easily cost £90 or more. By good, I DON'T mean Gordon Ramsey (which I hear is superlative), but, for example, L'Estaminet, Le Deuxieme, Bank.

You can eat very good Chinese or Indian food for much less than that. You can also eat pleasant, non-gourmet Italian or other European style food for somewhat less, depending on what you order.

Sorry, I forgot to say in my last post -- I meant £90 for two people.

Brasserie St Quentin - Brompton Road.

Wagamama (not very expensive)

San Lorenzo (might cost more)

Good pizza at Pizza Express

The Good Earth on Brompton Road

Patisserie Valerie is open for dinner now & is excellent.

Good Thai restaurant catty-corner across the street from Bibendum (can't remember the name.)

Le Deuxieme french restaurant is a favorite of mine and I would call it popular priced (reasonable) but if you have a drink and possibly wine it can add up. I like to gauge it by the cost of the main dish.

I too love Le Deuxieme, and also the above mentione L'Estiminet. One thing to keep in mind -- both those places (and many others) have fantastic deals for pre or post theatre. I'm not into eating before the show, but rather after. We always do at least one meal late at Le Deuxieme and it is a three course fixed price -- about 20 pounds (?). L'Estiminet does a pre-theatre three course which is wonderful for about 15 pounds. That's a fraction of their regular prices -- I only wish they'd stay open AFTER theatre.

I'm a big fan of the very traditional and cozy Maggie Jones, off Kensington High Street. It has all the traditional roasts, pies, and desserts -- a really great menu. Two of us spent 78 pounds total for Christmas Eve when we went "all the way" there -- including a nice bottle of wine. This summer we had lunch there -- wild boar sausages with mash, followed by a creme brulee and roast duck with orange sauce followed by a cheese course. Bowls of potatoes and vegetables come with it and we had a glass of wine each. Total price was 33 pounds.

I'll second Wagamama for an inexpensive lunch or dinner.

Try http://www.toptable.co.uk/ for restaurant reviews and to make reservations at your "splurge" restaurant.

Galvin has recently come highly recommended by a foodie friend living in London. We're going to try it out next month - http://www.galvinbistrotdeluxe.co.uk/

Galvin is a great spot and it has gotten harder and harder to get a table. It's on Baker Street. Good bistro cooking in a luxe atmosphere
