Bella Cosa

Us Brits are a big fan of Italian food, so it’s no surprise that our list would feature one of London’s finest contemporary Italian restaurants. Whether you want an intimate space for a romantic meal, a private dining room just for you and your group, or dinner with a view in the upstairs dining room, the restaurant is split artfully to offer a range of dining experiences.

Located on Canary Wharf, they scooped a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence as well as an Open Table Diner’s Choice Award in 2017.

On the set menu, you’ll find dishes like pumpkin tortelli with salted butter, wild sage and truffle, or pan seared sea bass with braised chicory, and the a la carte menu features all of the pizza and pasta dishes you could wish for, as well as some truly creative main dishes

Duck and Waffle

If you’re after impressive views while you dine, then look no further than Duck and Waffle. Located in London’s financial district, 40 floors high at the top of the Heron Tower, this particular gem is open 24/7. So whether you want to enjoy an evening meal, a late night bite, brunch, or even breakfast at sunrise, they’ve got you covered.

Aside from the famous duck and waffle itself, on the menu you will find such treats as ray yellowfin tuna served with pickled watermelon, mustard, olive and basil, or salt beef grilled cheese, whole grilled chicken, and nduja seared octopus with whipped yellow lentils, fennel, and green sauce.

 

Bombay Bustle

Head to Mayfair if you want a great value Indian restaurant, a spin-off to Jamavar just off Regent Street that is a relative newcomer to the London dining scene. As you walk in you’ll be hit by the fragrant scent of spices and smoke, and greeted by the sight of the cosy yet stylish interior. Oil lamps light each table, and the decor features wicker chairs, with dark herringbone floors for an earthy feel.

The menu is full of delightful dishes, from the goat keema, a fiery dish made from kid meat that is served with soft white buns like they do in Mumbai, or the dahl, which is rich and dark with a real taste of butter, which they cook overnight.

At lunchtime you can grab yourself a tiffin box set with bread and rice for £16 or £19, a relative bargain for the area.
