A long-standing staple on London's dining scene, Quaglino's is an iconic restaurant in St James's. Descend the grand staircase where a decadent interior gives way to plush seating and a central bar. The menu leans towards classic European dishes; think steak and seafood.

Like seafood? Well, you're going to love what's on offer at Avenue. Expect everything from bluefin tuna and confit salmon through to sea bass and beyond. There's even menus that'll see you through from brunch until Sunday roast time.

With venison tartare and dry-aged sirloin alongside seared scallops and braised ox cheek on the menu, you won't go hungry at The Soak. Join the Victoria restaurant for all that alongside live DJs and jazz sounds in a grade II-listed building.

Bringing a taste of Scandinavia to central London, Aster is the perfect pick for a little pre or post-sightseeing nosh. Think duck breast and foie gras, as well as truffle potato and crushed swede. Come the weekend, it's bottomless brunch with cocktails and DIY bloody marys.
