Great food for reasonable price. Excellent service. The mussels and chicken liver parfait (entree) were superb. The hake was excellent, but the broccoli was a little over-seasoned. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Description
In a delightful location overlooking Hyde Park, Island Grill is a stylish split-level restaurant and bar within the Lancaster London Hotel. Understated contemporary decor doesn't compete with the outstanding views of the Italian Gardens, while the all-day menu offers a cosmopolitan take on British classics. A relaxed buzz completes the atmosphere of friendly sophistication.
