Michelin Star Restaurants in London

St John reviews

Appalling, cold, and indifferent service. Food positively unpleasant - UNDERCOOKED pork! Pretentious and trading on past glories. Avoid.

Excellent place. Great atmosphere, and you can dine on Michelin star food for between £50 to £60 per head, including a bottle of wine each! I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Is this seriously a Michelin star restaurant? If so, I think the person who gave it a star needs a mouth transplant. One of the worst restaurants I have ever been to. Felt physically sick after the food, which was too rich, without balance and used average quality ingredients at best. Garbage.

Food was great, wine was superb and - as others point out here - the staff are amazing. Bumped into a friend in the bar area who got a chair added to our table in the restaurant for 1/2 hour so we could chat for a bit. Not many Michelin-starred restaurants would do that. And did I mention that you can also buy some of their wines to take home?

My favourite restaurant in the world! Great varied menu and the most unpretentious setting - couldn't ask for more!

Great restaurant and agree with the other reviews - but do try the bar menu, it's got to be the best in London!

I absolutely adore this place. The staff are so professional and friendly and the food is just fantastic. It's carnivore heaven! Such a contrast to St John Bread and Wine where the food is also wonderful, but is seriously let down by the attitude of the staff.

This place is amazing... the best staff and wonderful food. Their bread is awesome. If only London had more places like this.

Decor is rustic minimalism so the space is all about food, knowledgeable and unpretentious staff... FANTASTIC!
