Arthurs

Class local bistro. A bit on the expensive side if you go all-out but it's a really nice place to take parents etc. They're also open for breakfast and the full English is awesome!

Good wine list and I agree, the steak's incredible!

Jee Cee Neh

I wouldn't dream of going back after experiencing the worst ever meal of my life there a few weeks ago.

The service was rude and tardy - only one waiter spoke English - the menu was utterly over-priced and the wine list unbelievably bad. Only one white (a rough French number) and one red (some disgusting mouthwash from the house of Blue Nun (I kid you not) were offered each at a staggering £17 a bottle!

But if you think that's bad wait until you hear about the food... We opted for the mixed barbecue which the over-stretched waitress kept forgetting and managed to burn so badly all our food had to be replaced. Then the bill arrived – in Korean! By this point I’d just had enough and wanted to get out so didn’t kick up a fuss. Suffice to say it was a staggering rip-off – over £120 for the four of us.

There are loads of Korean restaurants on Burlington Road and I would definitely check these out based on some of the excellent reviews I have ready. But I would only recommend Jee’s if I truly hated you.

p.s. it used to be known as Jee Cee Neh until recently.

Chez Kristof

I've taken clients here and can thoroughly recommend the food - it's top drawer.

The wine selection and ambience are also first class but I'm afraid the service is pants. Nothing that couldn't be sorted with a bit of careful management but it's just slow and disorganised.

I'd bear that in mind if you're taking important guests unless you fancy a very long night.

Boisdale of Belgravia

Oh my God! I have never encountered such a rude waiter in all my life. The kitchen mixed up our orders and when I ended up with the wrong vegetables our host was so incredibly rude – accusing me of ordering incorrectly!

The maitre d’ tried his best to apologise but just ended up sounding totally obsequious and insincere. The good but overpriced food partly made up for the appalling service but then the icing on the cake arrived with the bill…

Yes ladies and gentlemen we were each charged £3.95 for the experience of being inflicted with overbearing live jazz which over dinner.

I will absolutely never go to this place again and wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy. I’ve had much better service in fast food restaurants and you don’t end up stinking of cigars when you leave burger bars either.

Reds Bar and Grill (Wimbledon)

Bizarre but I too was ripped off to the same tune for a large glass of lime and soda. I also think prices for many of the drinks are a bit rich. The food is okay but hardly anything special. Wimbledon is getting better by the day so they had better pull their socks up!
