Champagne Louis Roederer: voted The World's Most Admired Champagne Brand 2023 by Drinks International for the fourth consecutive year, not only because of the exceptional quality of their champagnes, but because sustainability is at the heart of their philosophy. The estate is entirely organic and they work hand in hand with nature every step of the way. As a result the house style is elegant, pure and complex ranging from the beautiful, refined, multi-vintage Collection 243 to the iconic and ethereal Cristal, the champagne made at the request of Tzar Alexander II and the first ever prestige cuvée created.

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7LA

The Aubrey's stunning interiors are reason enough to pay a visit, but we're also big fans of the luxurious Japanese menu, which includes sushi platters, hirata buns and an exceptional cocktail programme too. This is also a good brunch spot, with delicious brunch menus served over the weekend to a live DJ soundtrack.

Sumosan Twiga

Sumosan Twiga

165 Sloane Street, Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 9QB

Japanese and Italian might not sound like a natural pairing, but curiously the coupling seems to work at this Knightsbridge restaurant.

Harry's Dolce Vita

27-31 Basil Street, Knightsbridge, London, SW3 1BB

Is there any better cuisine at crowd-pleasing than Italian, we wonder? We’ve tried to come up with an alternative but are struggling, and in this arena Harry’s provides. It serves up a winning combination of pizza and pasta, which makes this Knightsbridge restaurant the perfect place to take the whole family.

The menu is authentically Tuscan as well, and the stellar wine list includes rare wines and exclusive vintages from the Antinori family estate.

Old Barrack Yard, Belgravia, London, SW1X 7NP

Jean-Georges Vongerichten returns to London in style with his signature all-day restaurant at The Emory, a swanky Knightsbridge hotel where suites start at £1800 a night. JGV's menu is bright and fresh, eschewing heavy meat stocks and cream for lighter dressings and juices, but its not less delicious as a result.

Neha Mishra has become a genuine superstar in Dubai on the back of her Kinoya Ramen Bar, so it wasn't a huge surprise to see her pop-up as part of Harrods' big Dining Hall renovation in 2023.

Bordering Hyde Park, Knightsbridge has always been a hub for deep-pocketed tourists, international residents and upscale restaurants. Ever a global shopping destination for those looking to splash the cash thanks to, among others, Harrods, dining in Knightsbridge follows suit when it comes to price. Dining in Knightsbridge needs little introduction, as the area is home to some of London's most famous dining institutions and hotels.

However, some more recent, affordable additions have opened up this area to younger, more casual diners. Some more relaxed pizzerias have moved in, along with delis where you can quickly grab a bite at the counter or outside, and reasonably-priced Lebanese restaurants where you can buy mountains of mezze. You're also never too far from some other London neighbourhoods with good food offerings, including the likes of Chelsea, Belgravia and Kensington.

No matter how you slice it, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to places to eat in Knightsbridge. It’s just as well-equipped to host a croissant, coffee and catch-up as it is a ten-course, Michelin-starred journey of modern European cuisine. As such, we cast a wide net then pick out the best of what we find. Read on for our pick of the best restaurants in Knightsbridge, ranging from glamorous, Michelin-starred gastro-temples to hidden gems on cobbled West London side streets.

While this list has been carefully selected by us, you’ll find plenty of information to help you choose which restaurant is right for you, including a quick description, pricing (always important) and, of course, any awards the restaurant may have earned, including the much-coveted SquareMeal gold, silver, and bronze awards. There’s a real range, from affordable to top-end, featuring cuisines from all over the world, including Japanese, Italian and Indian, as well as a fair share of more British fare.

Looking to continue the night for a little longer? Try one of Knightsbridge's best bars from our list of places that guarentee a good glass of wine, a selection of top beers or expertly-mixed cocktails. Or, check out our pick of the best restaurants in nearby Belgravia.
