Spur of the moment choice to eat here. A couple just beat us to the last table downstairs so we were seated upstairs. Stairs are quite steep and the room quite small, but we decided to eat anyway. Downstairs looks very cosy. Run by a very friendly young couple, we ordered squid and goats cheese tart followed by fish and... More

Affordable dining in this part of London is almost impossible to find but this is a simple, tiny restaurant which I shall return to again and again. Perfect if you're going to Winter Wonderland. I went on a Sunday night and only had a Caesar Salad and scoop of salted caramel ice cream but the service, ambiance and quality of... More

Had dinner at The Little Square - all food looked delicious, but we solely ordered specials: beef burger & goat cheese tart, and shared them. Perfect with a couple glasses of wine! Service was attentive but not imposing and the atmosphere was cozy with single taper candles on each table.

This place was a hidden gem, we arrived late in Mayfair and found this lovely place. The place is tiny but the food was really lovely. The menu was perfect - enought choice. The service was a little slow as there was only one person serving. The price was reasonable. Would go back again.

Friday night without a reservation is not easy, but we were seated upstairs in a quiet room with only three tables. Soon we were not alone, though. Menu is short, but we enjoyed risotto and burgers, with some of the best fries ever. Service is polite and they came back to check on us on a regular basis, also to... More

First we have to consider that this restaurant is located in Sheppard's market which is a very traditional cozy corner in the heart of London but a very touristic one as well! Having that in mind we visited this restaurant on a week night where it was hardly busy. Small sitting hall with a few tables next to each other.... More

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants in London. The scallops, tuna, seafood linguine and just about everything else on the menu were delicious. It was a sure fire go to to impress friends and family. Sadly not anymore! On a recent visit I noticed the menu had changed, none of the delicious favourites but poor imitations of... More

Rude and abrupt service. I asked in advance (and very politely) not to have any dish with wheat flour on or in it, because it genuinely makes me ill. My partner checked again for me. I was told it would be checked and positively no wheat flour would be served to me. Then my dinner arrived, deep fried in wheat... More

This is a very small intimate restaurant but a great place for a quick lunch. The food is great and despite some of the other reviews commenting on service I have never found it lacking. The menu just changed and it seems to have less selection but with many items from the old menu now specials on the special board... More

Went here for dinner and was able to get a table without having a reservation. The menu is simple and not especially inspiring. I ordered pan fried chicken with roast potatoes. The chicken was over cooked, dry and a bit disappointing appearing to have been baked rather than pan fried. Service was on the slow side. Overall a forgettable meal... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
