Best restaurants in Mayfair

Tell someone that you are taking them to dinner in Mayfair and their mind might immediately wander to Champagne corks being popped and lobsters served atop dazzling seafood towers. While it’s true that you can find this kind of luxury on pretty much every corner in W1, that is not to say that Mayfair restaurants lack substance. In fact, quite the opposite is true, for these are restaurants which have poured tremendous energy into their look, feel and food, offering diners access to some of the finest produce and the sorts of luxury ingredients you won’t find in your local M&S. If you are looking for a meal to remember, check out our pick of the best restaurants in Mayfair below - you won’t be disappointed.

Updated on 08 February 2022

It is safe to say that the restaurant scene in W1 can be divided up into two distinct camps: new Mayfair and old Mayfair. The former consists of flashy, over-the-top dining rooms which have been designed with Instagram in mind and cater to celebrities, fashionistas and the nouveau riche. The latter meanwhile, relies on silver service and fastidiously sourced produce.

The beauty of Mayfair though, is that unlike spaghetti Westerns where duelling cowboys proclaim that ‘this town isn’t big enough for the both of us’, this glamorous corner of London manages to strike the balance between both the traditional and contemporary brands of unbridled excess, with the likes of Scott’s and Amazonico standing side by side in perfect harmony.

So whether you are in the mood to party with London’s pretty young things at a lively weekend brunch or you are looking to impress a date with a romantic dining experience that they’ll never forget, Mayfair’s restaurant scene has something for you. As such, our list of the best Mayfair restaurants is an extensive one, paying homage to an area which offers a diverse range of cuisines, atmospheres and drinks lists. It’s true that at most Mayfair restaurants you can expect to spend a pretty penny, but there are bargains to be found here, especially in set lunch menus.

Check out our pick of the best Mayfair restaurants and know that whether you opt to indulge in the opulence of the old or the flashiness of the new, a good meal is almost always guaranteed.
