Le Caprice will always be a London best. Classic old-school vibes in this art-deco room with outstanding food. Throughout time, it has never changed and is so consistent and this is what makes Caprice so special. It doesn't need any changes. It's timeless.

Front of house managers are charming , and the waiters are excellent. The post theatre set menu is very good value, and the room has a very good buzz. I recommend, but the cuisine could be a little more polished.

Went for lunch and although we had to wait 10 minutes for our reserved table it was all good from then on. Great atmosphere, food excellent and staff attentive but not overly so. Thoroughly enjoyed.

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

There is a modest area inside the restaurant and a good number of tables alfresco. I am sure that if you ask to reserve an area they would consider it given enough notice
