Livebait (Covent Garden)

Looking for somewhere for a not too heavy pre-theatre lunch, we tried Livebait for the first time. It was perfect! A great atmosphere, lots to choose from, and helpful staff who steered us to a platter of Crab, Lobster and Prawns. Rather than sell us more than we needed, they advised only ordering one and sharing (good thing at the price - all worked out at £35/head with one bottle of £25 wine), and it was indeed as filling as it was tasty. It also lent our lunch the sense of occasion that we wanted on a special day. Will very definitely go back.

Smiths of Smithfield

Used this as a pre-dinner wine bar on my Birthday, and it was perfect. Great atmosphere on the 1st floor, perfectly judged lighting and music to get us int eh mood for a night out. We arrived early and watched the place fill up as we emptied a couple of fine bottles of wine, and the staff were professional and friendly at all times. Had some of the bar snacks which were very well priced (about £3 each for baked pork crackling and some rillets with toast - both were spot on). Will go again.

Smithfield Tandoori

Smithfild Tandoori serves up a good mix of traditional curry house fare, along with some interesting alternatives as 'signature' dishes. The menu concentrates on providing quality, so expect to see only a couple of pages, rather than the more usual approach of offering the maximum possible number of combinations of meat type and sauce. Service was good and friendly, and stayed that way when we queried the bill (they were right, we were wrong!). £35/head inc wine. This is a very popular place in the week with the city crowd, but Saturday at 8pm , we were the only people in there. Will go again.
