“The lobster bisque is the mutts nuts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

Excellent restaurant experience which was heightened by meeting the England cricket team outside, not too sure if they went in though.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Went here for dinner on Feb18th with my husband as I wanted a nice dinner out. The food was very good. My husband had the lobster bisque for a starter which was made at that table--flames and all. It would be pricey for local standards--3 courses and a bottle of wine was about US$180 for the two of us.

Menu is a mix of seafood and meat--quite a bit of lamb and beef. Restaurant is on the ground floor of the hotel and is a cosy setting. It was quiet the night we were there with only about 4 or 5 other tables, but we did eat a bit early. There is a dress code--no shorts for men as someone else got turned away when we arrived.

“Old-School Charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

After going through a bit of a slump, a recent visit to the venerable old-stager, The London Grill, brought me back into the fold as a fan. Buttery, garlicky escargots, a perfectly-cooked Chateaubriand and an unexpectedly good Cherries Jubilee, all washed down with a superior Bordeaux and complemented by gracious, unobtrusive service with a discreetly tinkling piano in the background to complete the picture. With its rather stuffy, formal ambience, a venue for a special occasion to be sure, but once again, a top choice in town for it.
