Having been here a few years ago and enjoyed a wonderful meal I have always had it in my head that Scott's is the best fish restuarant in London. I returned this Saturday for lunch and again was impressed, but not dazzled.
The setting is slick and the service impressive, admitedly there wasn't a big crowd in at 12.30, but by 1pm there was hardly a spare seat to be seen. The selection of starters is impressive – from oysters (try with wild boar sausages), to smoked fish to a number of excellent others including the octopus carpaccio. Their main courses are the obvious array of delicious sounding fish, but also some interesting meat dishes for those who need a break. My halibut was good and beautifully presented but nothing on the halibut I had at The Square before Christmas. I think this summed it up for me – the food was very good, but I know I have had better.
It doesn't come cheap clearly either – £210 for 2 people! Is it worth it? I don't think I would race back to pay with my own money, but for good fish you always have to pay top whack. Its a fun restaurant with a good atmostphere, backed up with good quality cooking, but as I walked home contemplating if it was the best for fish in London, I passed a sign outside another famous fish restaurant, it read “The best fish restaurant in London”… Well there is only one way to find out – will be booking up One-O-One very soon!
