Fig Bistro

Went to fig for the third time the other night and had another outstanding meal. Everything was fantastic to the starters through to the dessert. I was with my visiting mom who was a bit skeptical about the menu when we first arrived but now she cannot wait to come back. I had a gazpacho starter that was unusual but very refreshing and a monkfish dish that tasted as nice if not better than lobster.

The service was personal and made the entire evening special.

Barnes Grill Bar and Restaurant

My friend and I stumbled luckily onto this place looking for a pre-concert meal near Hammersmith. We were happily ignorant of the celebrity chef connection but pleasantly surprised by the restaurant, the quality of the food and the decor.

I had a phenomenal goat-cheese and asparagus salad and my friend had a trio of cheeses as well. My steak was not the best I have ever had to be honest, but for London I thought it was quite tasty and certainly well prepared. We topped it off with a bottle of outstanding New Zealand Pinot Noir and we were both happy.

I thought the prices were more than reasonable and that the atmosphere was very nice and relaxed. I would love to come back again or visit one of his other restaurants.

A friend of mine pointed this place out to me and considering that my father was polish and my mother mexican, I could not wait to try it. I went last week for lunch with another Polish friend of mine and was not disappointed.

We feasted on Golubki and Pierrogi and they were both fabulous. It is a very home-like atmosphere and the staff made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Highly recommended

Bank Westminster

Had an excellent late lunch here with my mum. Excellent service and great food, both from the regular menu and from the prix fixe lunch. staff were very gracious about moving us away from a strong cigar smoker. only thing that was less than stellar was the coffee, but the wine by the glass and the champagne cocktails made up for that.
