When to Visit


International Travel — U.K.
London, England
London Restaurants
— Afternoon Tea
— Celeb Chef Restaurants
— Traditional British Restaurants
— Hot Bars & Wine Bars

No trip to London would be complete without experiencing an afternoon "High Tea" and visiting a local Pub and enjoying a traditional English meal of Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding, washed down with a pint of Guinness.

Indian cuisine is also especially good here — and like the Pubs, there are more Indian restaurants in and around London than you can count. And contrary to popular belief, Chicken Tikka Masala is the U.K.'s national dish... NOT Fish & Chips anymore!

Restaurant Reviews
Restaurants marked with a symbol are those we've reviewed. Those without a symbol — restaurants we've dined at and not yet reviewed, or those that have
been highly recommended by
other reviewers, business associates or friends — are
linked directly to their web sites.

* Fair
** Good
*** V. Good
**** Excellent

Most of the reviewed restaurants are rated Three and Four Stars — we tend not to publish reviews
of poor dining experiences...we prefer to focus on the positive ones. We find out about restaurants through word-of-mouth, friends, our readers, web sites, clients, newspapers, magazines, and radio shows. Our reviews are unsolicited and free from the influence of advertising.
