Le Caprice

The thing that amuses me the most about Le Caprice, is the reviews that other people leave about the restaurant on this website, especially about the 'rude' waiters, which, incidentally, I am yet to come across.

My husband and I have been coming to this restaurant for years, and never experienced any problems, in fact, it has been perfect for every occasion, be it business or pleasure, and the friends and family we bring to Le Caprice are all enchanted.

We are back there for lunch today, so expect a further review if the rose-tinted glass shatters.

PS The Rivoli bar at The Ritz is a great place for pre-lunch/dinner drinks (provided you are smartly dressed), but I am yet to find this bar in The Dorchester...

China Tang at The Dorchester

Dire, exorbitantly priced food: it really is galling to pay so much for something so average.

I'm afraid the highlight of my meal was the cigarette I smoked at the end, much to the annoyance of my fellow diners.

There is little else to say that hasn't already been said, except for save your money.

I could not agree less with the other reviewer of this restaurant.

Having visited The Grill quite a few times for various Sunday lunches, I can only say that you would be hard pushed to find a better level of service in any London restaurant: the waiters are attentive without being overbearing, and nothing is too much trouble.

The last time I was there, one (out of four) of my group had ordered a starter, and the remaining three of us were offered some (complimentary) smoked salmon.

The roast beef and yorkshire puddings are the best I have tasted, with an excellent wine list to boot.

My only criticism would be that the famous five varieties of that perfect Sunday drink, the bloody mary, have been reduced to one.
