The Ritz Restaurant
“Iconic hotel steeped in history, and some of London’s best food.” - AA Inspector
LONDON W1, LONDON POSTAL DISTRICTS
Is the Ritz London’s most famous hotel? It might be, and the mere mention will conjure images of opulent surroundings and the weight of history. It really is a glorious place, sophisticated and glamorous throughout. The restaurant is everything you could want in spectacular destination dining, with crystal chandeliers, marble columns and extraordinary trompe-l'oeil decoration. Menus are equally splendid, offering luxury ingredients and spot-on classical dishes alongside contemporary techniques and ideas. Begin with ballotine of duck liver with sour cherry and pistachio, or beef tartare with truffle and sorrel, followed by main course turbot with cucumber and Imperial caviar, or fallow deer with smoked beetroot, walnut and juniper. If you want to really push the boat out, the Arts de la Table menu is old-school tableside service for two – maybe hay aged Bresse duck with apricot, almond and lavender, followed by beef Wellington with hen of the wood and Périgord truffle.

About the area
The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.
London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
