So the big one… London's only 3 Michelin Star restaurant, will it live up to all the expectations and the endless hype or would I leave disappointed? A little bit of a stupid question as I can safely say my meal at RHR was the best I've had in London – ever! From the moment you walk in to the friendly and charming greeting from the legendary Jean Claude you are put instantly at ease and know you are going to be hit with a very special experience. The venue itself is remarkably small compared to some venues – very intimate and bright. The food as you expect is out of this world – the taste, presentation and attention to detail was astounding. As for the food “Ravioli of lobster, langoustine and salmon poached in a light bisque with a lemongrass and chervil velouté” for starter “Confit milk-fed Suffolk pork belly, caramelised endive, apples, grelot onions and Madeira jus” for main and “Granny Smith parfait with blackberry foam, honeycomb and cider sorbet” for dessert – It's almost impossible to describe how fantastic these dishes were – certainly in this limited space. All I can say is get there as soon as you possibly can – if you are worried about overspending go for the bargain set lunch at £45 – It may be a reduced menu but certainly not a reduction of taste or quality.
