Since its opening 15 years ago, we have continuously enjoyed the restaurant and always left it with the same feeling : "tonight it was awsome". Gagnaire is the most creative chef, his DNA is replicated in every dish by a terrific team in the kitchen.

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
