Our Inspector's view

Alexis Gauthier's charmingly unmodernised Regency townhouse restaurant, with its iron railings and glossy black front door, certainly stands out from the regular Soho crowd; you even have to ring the bell or knock to enter. Inside, the light-filled first-floor dining room aptly conveys its charm, with original fireplace, striking artworks and tall windows. This is the elegant backdrop for Gauthier’s appealing prix-fixe roster that runs the full gambit of carte, lunch and tasting menus (including vegan options) boosted by classy between-course action, plus impressive breads and a sparkling wine list. Take a classy duck and cep ravioli lunch opener, teamed with sautéed girolles, mushroom salad and a duck jus, while roast fillet of sparkling-fresh sea bream is complemented by sweet-and-sour root vegetables, sautéed sea aster and a top-notch fish velouté. Okay, each dish maybe labelled with a calorie count, but don’t hold back on the heavenly dark chocolate tart (70% grand cru) and yogurt sorbet.

About The area

Discover London

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.
