SquareMeal Review of Le Caprice

Silver Award

“A classic, but still one the best” says a fan of Le Caprice, the vintage St James’s hangout that gave Caprice Holdings its name. Star-seekers, celebs and grown-up hedonists are easily seduced by its David Bailey photographs, riffing piano player and “fantastic customer service” (directed by legendary maître d' Jesus Adorno), while the food is “easy on the palate” – but irresistible in its own way. Whether you’re in the market for rigatoni with rabbit ragù, crispy duck salad, miso-marinated salmon with stir-fried shiitake mushrooms or a classic brasserie plateful such as slow-roast pork belly with black pudding mash, caramelised apples and Calvados sauce, this kitchen is a failsafe option – and decent value to boot. There’s also fun to be had when it comes to desserts such as rhubarb and custard pavlova or the Cru Virunga chocolate crunch bar with cherries. Flutes and bottles of premium fizz match the mood, or you can get your boozy kicks from the zingy cocktails and classy international wines. With weekend brunch and Sunday night jazz added to the mix, Le Caprice is “always perfect” – even after all these years.

They've been doing it brilliantly for years now. Happy to say nothing's changed. The menu was full of anticipation, just made you thikn, ooh i want to eat that. The food when it came was as good as the description. The art deco building is back in fashion (again) - it was never out of style and the service hit all of the right notes. The maitre d' knew who we were when we arrived. The champagne was set up to be poured (it was our wedding anniversary). Whenever i looked up for a waiter there was one that found me - how often does that happen? And whilst it wasn't cheap, it was good value for money. I asked myself 'what could they have done to make it better'? Answer nothing. Perfect.

If you have the confidence to enjoy yourself in the rarified atmosphere you will absolutely love it. Wall flowers are better off at home.
