Celebrity chef Marcus Wareing has earned a Michelin star, and it’s not hard to see why. This beautiful restaurant, which focuses on French-inspired dishes with British ingredients, has proved to be a big hit in London. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a bad word about this restaurant.

In the beautiful Berkeley Hotel you’ll find the stunning Marcus Restaurant. Behind the ornate glass doors is the chef’s table, which is right next to the kitchen; everyone wants to sit here. When the glass doors open, heads turn to see who is lucky enough to sit there. But the whole place is beautifully decorated and the main restaurant is quite acceptable. Beautiful wooden panels, polished oak floors and whimsical artwork adorn this famous eatery.

Many of the ingredients are sourced from Marcus’ farm in Kent. It really is a luxurious moment of “good living”. The restaurant is perfect for lunch or dinner as there is always something going on. The lunch menu is particularly good value: three courses for £60 and a sommelier’s selection for a further £50. The dinner menus are divided into three, five or seven courses. The last two are tasting menus. The lamb is notorious here, but the fish and duck dishes are also a hit. Not a single burger or roast in sight!

It’s a very smart restaurant in Knightsbridge, and although there is no formal dress code (apart from the usual ban on sportswear), you should turn up smartly dressed. You’ll see Saville Row suits and all the Italian and French designers here; it really is where the fabulous people dine. If you have an Allure girl by your side, you can be sure she’ll look flawless and right at home here. So go ahead, call us today and make a date.
