London Hilton on Park Lane, 22 Park Lane, London W1K 1BE
Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10

This restaurant at the top of the Hilton on Park Lane is the jewel of the Galvin restaurants. It boasts amazing views over Hyde Park and some of the best service in London thanks to a team trained by the legendary Fred Sirieix who you might see in there from time to time.

Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10

People may complain about the sharp table-turning at this subterranean Chinese restaurant - Alan Yau's follow-up to Hakkkasan, but you'll never hear a bad word about the dim sum. If it's something sweet you're after, head for the street-level patisserie and tea shop.

aquavit
1 Carlton St, St. James's, London SW1Y 4QQ

From the same group as the New York restaurant of the same name, this Nordic spot on St James Market goes for a more informal vibe to its NYC stablemate. As you might expect from the name, there's a cracking selection of Nordic spirits on offer.

Social Eating House
58 Poland St, London W1F 7NR
Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10

This restaurant is from Jason Atherton and, to date, his only one in Soho. Expect a very British menu, with plenty of starters in jars too. As with all of Atherton's places, the bar is just as important - so make time to head upstairs for a cocktail or three.

Pierre Gagnaire's uber chic Mayfair restaurant is certainly for special occasions - it's one of the most expensive meals in town. There are multiple dining rooms within the building, all with very different looks and menus. There are also incredibly instagrammable loos.

Town Hall Hotel, Patriot Square, London E2 9NF
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10
Michelin star 2 Michelin stars

Two chefs, one from Argentina and the other from Brazil teamed up with Singaporean hotelier Peng Loh for this Latin American and Italian inspired restaurant by way of San Sebastian. It's the kind of international melting pot story that makes London's restaurant scene so great. Michelin clearly agree - they gave it a star in its first year. Tasting menus can be an ordeal, but here there's a great deal of humour, making a trip to Bethnal Green to try Da Terra's inspired dishes a must.

Claude Bosi at Bibendum
Michelin House, 81 Fulham Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 6RD
Critic reviews - total score out of 10
Michelin star 2 Michelin stars

Michelin star 2 Michelin stars

This Michelin starred Chinese restaurant is the flagship for Andrew Wong (who is also behind Kym's in the City). In a pared-back room, the menu travels the broad spectrum of Chinese cooking and has a lunchtime dim sum menu that's absolutely worth crossing town for.

Critic reviews - total score 9 out of 10
Michelin star 2 Michelin stars

One of the few London restaurants on the World's 50 Best list, Heston's only London gaff is still hugely popular. The dishes that captured everyone's attention when it opened - the Meat Fruit (chicken liver parfait shaped like a mandarin) and the Tipsy Cake are still on the menu and are must-order dishes if you haven't got round to trying them yet. Keep an eye out for A-list diners, the hotel is a well-known celebrity haunt.

Victor Garvey's second Soho restaurant (in the same spot as the first) looks towards Californian fine-dining restaurants for its inspiration. So there's a West Coast USA vibe to the restaurant, fitted into its Soho location.
