Want to be looked after to within an inch of your life? Well, this is the restaurant you come to. Properly old-school French, Otto's has carved out a niche for itself because of a serious bit of kit called the duck press and its fans are legion.

Westerns Laundry

Critic reviews - total score 9 out of 10

Owners David Gingell and Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim also run nearby Primeur and Jolene, both also excellent. Here, there's a distinct focus on seafood and the menu changes every day, although if the cuttlefish croquettes with aioli are on there, make sure you order those. In the summertime, you can take a glass of something cold out on the front courtyard and if you're really pushing the boat out, ask for the leather-bound, handwritten, ‘black book’ of fine wines.

The French House is mainly known as a classic Soho pub - but it also has a dining room upstairs. It's a small affair - it almost feels like a private dining room - but it's hosted some great names. It's now home to ex-Merchants Tavern chef Neil Borthwick who's cooking up French classics.

36 Duke Street, St James's, London SW1Y 6DF

Maison Francois comes from a team that's from London restaurant stock (the owner's dad founded Brasserie St. Quentin) and serves a menu that's strong on French brasserie classics.

This is the second restaurant from Leonid Shutov - who brought us the wonderful Bob Bob Ricard. His City restaurant has been a long time in the making, and the £25 mil spent on it really shows. Expect opulence - and the press for Champagne buttons too.
