Over the bank Holiday weekend, I finally dined at the infamous celebrity haunt, Le Caprice. Le Caprice is renowned for it’s classic menu which features our favourite British, European and American dishes, as well as its stunning timeless black and white interior, which is completed by a collection of photographs by the iconic photographer, David Bailey. At first glance you can see why the restaurant has made such a name for itself, Le Caprice is everything you could imagine and more. Le Caprice is a sophisticated restaurant, yet also allows guests to enjoy their full menu at the bar for a more relaxed experienced. From 6.30pm onwards your dinner and drinks will be accompanied by their pianist. For Jazz lovers, if the food isn’t enough to get you there, every Sunday Le Caprice own a great Jazz night. Either way, Le Caprice is a highly recommended a visit.

What I had
As you’ve probably noticed by now, I always share my starters, to me it’s incomprehensible to understand those who don’t. This way there’s no food envy and you get a little taste of everything. To star, my dinner date and I shared the Salmon and Yellow Tail sashimi, which was excellent by no means would you believe you we’re in a Modern European restaurant and the Isle of Mull scallops, which melted in your mouth. To follow, I had the Thai Baked Sea Bass, which was beautifully cooked with a flavoursome and not too overpowering sauce. Whilst my date had the Chicken alla Milanesse, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Both portions were extremely generous servings. For dessert we shared the Dark Chocolate Cheesecake with Raspberry Ripple and Cru Virunga Chocolate Crunch Bar. Please note, the dessert menu changes weekly!
I am torn, Le Caprice owns a great atmosphere, with incredible staff and impeccable food.
Sophisticated with a buzz.
Great – staff we’re very friendly, attentive and polite. The impeccably dressed staff also have great relationships with their regular clientele.
