These exist?!?!

From bistros to pizza to curries to good ol' heart pies, we walk you through some of Mayfair's best cheap eats...




Burger & Lobster
29 Clarges Street W1J 7EF
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Green Park (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: When in Mayfair, eat lobster! Here you can chow down on the whole thing with fries and salad for just £20. If you don't fancy that there's also a mammoth 10oz burger for the same price.

Tibits
12-14 Heddon Street W1B 4DA
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Piccadilly Circus (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: At this vegetarian restaurant you pay by weight, so head to the self-service counter and pile your plate up as high as your appetite dictates. The food changes with the seasons, but you can always expect super healthy options like dal and noodle salads as well as comforting lasagnes and pizzas.

Truc Vert
42 North Audley Street W1K 6ZR
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Bond Street (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: Classic French cuisine at bargain prices is offered at this quaint restaurant moments away from Hyde Park. There's raclette for £15 per person, two for one burger deals and wine at supermarket prices, all the sort of stuff you wouldn't expect to find in Mayfair.

  • MEDITERRANEAN
Richoux
41A South Audley Street W1K 2PS
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Bond Street (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: This all-day restaurant and cafe specialises in providing affordable meals in posh areas - they have branches in Knightsbridge, St. John's Wood, South Kensington, and this one near Park Lane. It's all about comfort food, so think all day full English breakfasts, Shepherd's pies and fish and chips.

Sofra
18 Shepherd Street W1J 7JG
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Green Park (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: Sofra is a Turkish restaurant, although there are additions from other cuisines such as wagyu steak and eggs Florentine for breakfast. Be thrifty by ordering one of the spicy meat, fish or vegetable stews with rice for £15, or any of the chargrilled meats for just £12.

L'Artiste Muscle
1 Shepherd Market W1J 7PA
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Green Park (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: This little bistro has famous French dishes like beef Bourguignon and cassoulet on the menu for under £15. Located on historical Shepherd Market, some may call it cramped, but we prefer to see it as charmingly busy.

Rasa W1
6 Dering Street W1S 1AD
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Bond Street (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: Given that Kerala is on the southern tip of India the food is characterised by tropical ingredients - mangoes, coconuts, cardamom and cashews are staples. At Rasa they stay true to their roots with aromatic curries and dosas filled with pulses and chutneys, and you can fill up for just over a tenner.

Mayfair Pizza
4-6 Lancashire Court W1S 1EY
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Bond Street (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: The pretty courtyard off New Bond Street where Mayfair Pizza Co is situated is always lively thanks to the alfresco seating of the several restaurants lined up here. Cheaper than its neighbours, this pizzeria does pizzas for under £15, from the standard margherita to novel varieties topped with pulled pork and smoked chicken.

  • PIZZERIA
NAC (North Audley Cantine)
41 North Audley Street W1K 6ZP
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Bond Street (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: NAC - or North Audley Cantine - is halfway between a casual bistro and an upmarket restaurant. The food reflects this, so you'll find crowd-pleasing small plates like buttermilk popcorn chicken and refined dishes such as sea bass tartar with lemongrass and Szechuan peppers.

The Windmill
6-8 Mill Street W1S 2AZ
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Oxford Circus (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: After spending a day hobnobbing around Mayfair, sometimes you just want a good old fashioned pub. The Windmill has a fine selection of pies, from tried and tested steak and kidney to seasonal varieties like spicy chicken and chorizo. It's a Young's pub so it's all keenly priced.
