A photo of The Ivy restaurant
Price: Very Expensive
• Modern European • Covent Garden
Booked 109 times today
The Ivy restaurant has been a firm fixture on London’s dining and social scene since 1917. The restaurant and private room upstairs are the epitome of real glamour. A shimmering central dining bar in the restaurant draws admiring attention, and the signature harlequin stained-glass windows, oak panelling and striking contemporary art collection ensure the longevity of this very British of dining institutions. Executive Chef Gary Lee creates balanced seasonal menus, featuring Ivy classics, but accounting for today’s tastes, incorporating more Asian dishes, salads and vegetables, and the advent of a “sea and shells” section. Director Fernando Peire leads a strong and experienced team to deliver the unfaltering service for which The Ivy has become well known over the years. The Ivy welcomes customers without reservations at the central dining bar, where the A La Carte and Set menus are both served.

A photo of Barshu restaurant
Price: Expensive
• Chinese (Sichuan) • Soho
Booked 29 times today
The food of Sichuan province in southwest China is one of the world's great cuisines. Its most famous characteristic is its fiery spiciness, which comes from the liberal use of chillies and lip-tingling Sichuan pepper. But hot and spicy is only part of the story. Sichuanese chefs are legendary for their ability to combine many different tastes into exquisite complex flavors. Some of these are robustly spicy, while others are delicate and teasing. And the use of chilies is so inventive that their taste never palls. At Barshu we want to bring you the best of the authentic flavours of Sichuan. So look out, among others, for the seductive 'fish-fragrant'combination of pickled chilies, ginger, garlic and spring onion, the addictive fieriness of 'numbing-and-hot' flavored dishes, and the refreshing tones of a 'ginger-juice' sauce. We hope you enjoy your food.

    First time and loved it . It was a lovely sunny day . Amazing history in the door showing real flair and passion in a super busy environment. Great little table with lots of space to put our shopping down …. Menu is nice and tight . It’s def more brasserie and portions are not massive but that’s perfect for weekend lunch / brunch. I had the salmon to start then the pulled lamb flatbread . Both lovely ( tiny reason not 5 stars on food …maybe a touch too much oil ) ….We were not rushed and stayed an hour and a half . I have just booked again for next week . Go go go x

    We have been coming here for many years especially birthdays (as was mine on this occasion). My wife first came here with her parents back in the 1950’s and we have enjoyed for some considerable time.
