The Best 100 Restaurants in London

London's best restaurants' ratings and awards in one simple list

London's Best Restaurant is...
Gordon Ramsay
68 Royal Hospital Road, London, SW3 4HP

He may appear in headlines more often for courting controversy than for his food these days, but his flagship restaurant, which he opened in 1998 at the age of 31, was awarded three Michelin stars within its first three years, which it has retained to this day. This is also the restaurant most visitors to London have heard of due to Ramsay’s high profile as a celebrity chef.

In October 2015 long-standing and brilliant Chef-patron Clare Smyth announced her resignation (whilst retaining an advisory role), as she plans her own restaurant opening. Her Head-chef of two years Matt Abe has since taken over the helm. The menu is modern French and features many of Ramsay’s dishes re-interpreted by Smyth and now increasingly with Abe's influence. Aside from the à la carte there is the very luxurious Prestige Menu if you can fork out the £125 a head not including wine. Styled by David Collins, almost everything in the dining room is white with the exception of the sparkly chandeliers; it’s elegant and romantic.
