It's nearly 30 years since I last dined here and I don't think it has changed very much! The decor certainly hasn't changed – art deco meets cruise liner bling. Staff are discreet and attentive. Le Caprice is just around the corner from the Ritz...More

Always enjoy lunch at this classic London restaurant in St James. Food is delicious, service professional and great atmosphere. Not surprised it is still going strong after 35 years.

A lovely discreet family favorite. Food always perfect, with menus to suit anyone. Ambiance is welcome and the bar is good for a gin while you wait.

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
