The Ritz restaurant in London is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful dining rooms in the world, and I could sure live there.
This was what I had for dinner.
Chestnut velouté with sea buckthorn and wild mushrooms. A rich and creamy creation that started the dinner in a great way.
Brill with beluga lentils, mussels and Champagne sauce
Prune and Armagnac soufflé with almond ice cream
A plate of sample desserts with ganache filled chocolate, vanilla macaron, marmalade and chocolate cake. Of these my favaourite was the macaron due to its silky texture and impeccable smoothness of the filling, the best I’ve ever tasted.
Expectations: A decadent evening with perfect food and nice wine with the best service around. No pressure…
Dresscode: Reflecting the elegant nature of the hotel’s architecture The Ritz London has a dress code in different areas of the hotel as follows: Gentlemen are required to wear a jacket and tie (jeans and sportswear are not permitted for either ladies or gentlemen). Please note that trainers and sportswear are not permitted in any of the hotel or Club’s restaurants or bars.
Well thank god, if not understood by the rest of the ambiance, you would look ridiculous in this venue if wearing jeans or trainers…
Service: Well dressed waiters and knowledgeable and happy waiters.
Food: High class with clean flavors. Delicately seasoned as it should.
Ambiance and venue: Fabulous! No unnecessary back ground noise, beautiful venue and just enough attentive waiters. Yes, it is one of the most beautiful dining rooms in the world.
Drinks: Special champagne offer, great wine list in different price ranges. Not so many on half-bottles.
The chair: Super comfy and very beautiful.
Money worth? Yes! I’ll be back!
