- American -------------------------------------------------

25 Catherine Street, London, WC2B 5JS

 Covent Garden

Situated in the proximity of Covent Garden, Mishkins offers an alternative evening  with typically American dishes, in particular influenzed by the restaurants of New York. Try one of their 'sandwiches' accompanied by a cocktail, we recommend the 'Reuben on rye'.

Burger & Lobster


Mayfair - 29 Clarges Street, W1J 7EF

 Green Park

Soho - 36 Dean Street, W1D 4PS
 Leicester Square

Farringdon - 40 St John's Street, EC1M 4AY

City - 1 Bread Street, EC4M 8SH
 Mansion House

It isn't hard to decide what to eat at Burger & Lobster as there are only three items to choose from on the menu - a juicy burger, a steamed and grilled lobster or delicious lobster chunks in a brioche roll. With four venues across London you may have to wait to get a table as they do not take reservations (only for tables of 6-10 people)...but for the overall experience it is definitely worth it. We highly recommend it.

- Asian -------------------------------------------------
Cay Tre

42-43 Dean Street, London, W1D 4PZ

 Tottenham Court Road

Cay Tre is a  Vietnamese restaurant located in Dean Street in the centre of Soho. If you want an Asian experience while you are in London then this is for you.
The dishes are of excellent quality, the owners very welcoming and prices are very reasonable.

Today with its three restaurants (Guildhall, Seven Dials, Spitalfields), Hawksmoor offers delicious steaks using British beef of the best quality.

Roast Restaurant

The Floral Hall, Stoney Street, SE1 1TL

 London Bridge

Roast Restaurant is located in London's famous Borough Market and offers traditional British cuisine using only the finest British ingredients (many of which actually come from some of the Market's stallholders). With some fantastic views on offer, visit Roast to experience British food at its finest. We highly recommend the 'pork belly' or 'roast rump of lamb'. There is no better place to enjoy your Sunday Roast.

- French-------------------------------------------------
Pierre Victoire

5 Dean Street, London, W1D 3RQ
 Tottenham Court Road

This French bistro can be found in Dean Street,a few steps from frenetic Old Compton Street in Soho, and offers the highest quality dishes at fantastic prices, above all if you opt for the fixed menu which offers a starter and a main course at £12 (£10 if you eat between 12 pm and 4 pm).

With a list of excellent French and Italian wines this restaurant is perfect for eating before or after a show at the theatre.

Brasserie Zedel


20 Sherwood Street, London, W1F 7ED

 Piccadilly Circus

Brasserie Zedel, located a stone throw away from Piccadilly Circus, offers great value for money French cuisine in sumptuous surroundings. You will not only be impressed with the great location and decor of the restaurant though, the food is pretty good as well. The Boeuf Bourguignon and Poulet au Champagne we tried were delicious, not to mention the desserts…a restaurant you must visit during your stay in London.

Having eaten pizzas for years when living in Italy we have finally found a restaurant in London which actually produces  pizzas of a quality comparable to those in Italy.

But not only the pizzas, also the starters, and  pasta dishes are excellent and with  5 restaurants across London it shouldn't be too hard to find ...


135 Wardour Street, London, W1F 0UT

ottenham Court Road 

With its amazing selection of breads, pastries, salads and cakes, Princi, in bustling Soho, is a great place to enjoy a pre-theatre snack or an evening meal. There is a great variety of food to choose from, including some delicious filled focacce and mouth watering pizzas. The environment can be a bit chaotic at times and you may have to wait a while for a table, but then again this is London after all…
