Dining out in any city can be confusing, let alone in London. It can be difficult to know where the best places are; are you getting a great meal for the price? Will you be underdressed or overdressed for a particular restaurant?
While it’s fun to try small local restaurants while out in the rural countryside, it can be tempting to eat at the ample comfortable options in the city, like fast food restaurants.
However, if you’re taking the time and spending the money to travel, it’s never a bad idea to get a taste of local cuisines or spend one evening as a date night at a Michelin starred restaurant.
London is a great place to do just that. The city is enormous and filled with a variety of award-winning restaurants you won’t want to pass up.
We’ve assembled a variety of some of the most high-class restaurants around London, with menus that vary from traditional British cuisines to French and even American fare.
London is even home to the only Chinese restaurant to earn a Michelin star, as well as to Gordon Ramsay’s flagship restaurant. Each experience is unique and incredible.
Dine 28 stories up above the city and enjoy the view, or dine tucked into a dimly lit, private booth for a romantic meal. The choice is yours.
You’ll definitely have a hard time choosing where to dine during your stay in London!
