When it comes to the best restaurants in London for elite French cuisine, be sure to check out pretty bistro and bar Auberge in Southbank. Not only can you delve into goodies like steak frites, moules mariniere and deep-fried camembert, but also accompany it with an international selection of wine or Belgian craft beers, with stunning glimpses of The Shard from their rooftop in Waterloo. It's the perfect spot for a romantic first date or a chilled-out birthday dinner with your nearest and dearest.

The MAINE Mayfair

A New England-style brasserie, The MAINE has earned quite a reputation for its elevated fare. On top of the flavourful food, this venue has five distinct rooms, split across three floors of a converted Georgian townhouse in the heart of Mayfair.

Humble Grape - Wine Bars in London

When it comes to pairing wine with your meal, there's no restaurant quite like Humble Grape. Found across London, not only do the interiors flit between contemporary, classic and industrial, the plates are seasonal, high-end and paired with the finest bottles. 

Best Iberica Restaurants in London

If you're looking for the best tapas restaurants in London, Iberica is here to lend a hand. They're serving up plenty of delicious Spanish small plates, including croquetas, jamon Iberico and tortillas, in beautiful surrounds.

Arros QD

Looking for the best restaurants in London serving Spanish food? You won't want to miss out on the Valencian fare at ArrosQD, which is all whipped up using open fire cooking techniques. Think truffle potato souffle, rabbit paella and octopus leg across sumptuous tasting menus. 


Chuku's is one of the capital's best-kept secrets - a hidden gem in the form of the world's first Nigerian tapas restaurant, born from brother-sister duo Emeka and Ifeyinwa Frederick's creative minds. Step foot through its glass doors and enter a contemporary coral-coloured space, inspired by adobe clay, decked out in vibrant artwork alongside minimalist light fixtures. As soon as you get your chops around the jollof rice, honey suya prawns and plantains waffles, you'll soon see why it's one of the best eateries our city has to offer. And if that doesn't seal the deal? Have a pint of Nigerian Guinness. 


Located in the heart of Shoreditch, with a second venue in Hackney, Brat is an intimate, stylish restaurant that specialises in authentic Basque cuisine. Run by former Kitty Fisher head chef Tomos Parry, the kitchen cooks up wood-fired dishes like whole roasted turbot, beef sirloin and leeks with fresh cheese, alongside a dreamy burnt cheesecake for dessert. Of course, there's an extensive wine list to wash it all down too.
