SquareMeal Review of City Café Westminster

The business world would be a better place if more hotel restaurants followed in City Café’s footsteps. Rather than lazily serving up overpriced, overcooked steaks & burgers like many of its competitors, this venue keeps diners on their toes with a modern European menu that changes with the seasons. In springtime expect daring dishes such as Brixham crab & shaved fennel salad with a zingy lemongrass & mango salsa, followed by Cornish mackerel from the grill with grapefruit essence. To conclude, try almond pannacotta with banana cake & pistachio ice cream. Prices are fair (especially the weekly market menu), & there’s a holiday vibe to barbecues on the terrace. The swish cream & beige interior, with movable screens for added privacy, is appreciated by hotel guests & local business executives alike.
