    THE WATERWAY - LONDON: CANAL DINING IN LITTLE VENICE

    by DAO Written Jul 17, 2014


    The Waterway is an excellent dining experience right on the canal in Little Venice. It has a great outdoor terrace, real wood fire inside, large screen TV’s for sports, nice bar, great menu and excellent staff. I enjoyed the 50% off meal deal I found on the Top Table Website. I had a mixed Spanish meat and cheese platter for a starter and ribeye steak for my mains. Only the cheese and biscuits let the side down a bit. I would recommend using the deal and having a meal here. It’s a very nice place for a meal or just a drink.

    The large terrace outside is heated and is right on the picturesque canal. It is definitely a refined place for a drink or a meal. They do have big TV screens for sports, but the sound was too low to bother diners. The restaurant has nice leather seats, a great looking bar, clean toilets and an all around great atmosphere. You can also dine outside.

    The Waterway is actually part of a ‘chain’ of restaurants – although with individual menus. This is the best of the group.

    Favorite Dish:
    My starter was a selection of Spanish meats with manchego cheese and olives. For my main I had the Grilled Herford ribeye steak washed down with a carafe (500ml) of Klippenkop Shiraz (South Africa). This was followed by cheese and biscuits that actually had a poor tasting selection. Everything else was top notch.

    TANDIS: IRANIAN CLASS

    by DAO Written Jul 16, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Tandis is pure class. It has a nice terrace with natural flowers, beautiful interior and beautiful interior. The menu has many classic Iranian dishes and the quality is superb. If you have never tried Iranian food, this is a great place to try and also have an intimate meal.

    The Iranian family who own it are very friendly and hospitable. I enjoyed my conversation with the owner about my own travels in Iran.

    The front of the restaurant is definitely a great place for a romantic meal or just a quiet business dinner. Tasteful music in the background allows you to enjoy the friendly service, full bar and quality food. A relaxing and enjoyable meal.

    The rear of the restaurant is a bit more lively for a group or just drinking really. The full bar menu, good wine list and cold beers make Tandis a great place for a drink with good friends.

    Quite a few of the items on the menu may sound a bit strange, but just ask the staff. They are more than happy to explain and make recommendations. The meals are divided into:

    Grilled
    Stews
    Vegetarian

    You have hot and cold starters, many side options and can even order online for collection and free delivery (min. £20) and collection.

    You can also smoke sheesha and cigarettes (they sell both) outside in the beautiful flower lined terrace. In fact this terrace becomes a flower shop in the mornings.

    I really enjoyed and afforded my meal here. This is a classy place.

    Open : Mon-Thu, Sun 12-11:30pm; Fri-Sat 12pm-12am

    Favorite Dish:
    Fresh (flat) naan bread, hummus and Loobiya Polo. This is a made with diced lamb and runner beans stewed a tomato based saffron sauce with steamed persian rice. Very filling.

    BEL CANTO: THE MOST ENTERTAINING MEAL EVER

    by DAO Updated Jul 11, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    OK. I don’t like Opera either. Having said that, my meal at Bel Canto was the most entertaining meal I have ever enjoyed in over 30 years of dinning out in London. Somehow they combine top-notch gourmet food with Opera that is actually very entertaining. The lady who seated me and gave me my menu then walked into the middle of the restaurant and belted out a dramatic tune in French. Wow. From time to time different waiters and hosts would perform to live musicians and right at the table. Absolutely wonderful. And guys, if you need a really romantic restaurant – get in there!

    There are around 60 performers who work here in between working in the stage productions. Because of this range of talents you get a range of performances and even languages depending on who is working the night that you dine here. This makes for a very special evening.

    The menu is pretty special too. Every mouthful was a delight and the desserts look great. I had my usual cheese and biscuits with a very good glass of red to finish off a fabulous meal.

    The one thing to warn you about is that Bel Canto is not cheap. I booked my reservation on the Top Table website and received 50% off. This made it a lot more economical. There are supplements for some dishes like the fillet steak and the cheese board. I had both and they were worth the extra money due to the fantastic quality and taste.

    This is definitely recommended by me, but get your 50% off and reserve your table before you go. This place is busy every night of the week.

    Open Tue-Sat 7pm-11:30pm

    PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR MOBILE PHONE!

    Favorite Dish:
    Opera Salad for a starter, Fillet Beef with peppercorn sauce (rare), cheese board and a glass of red. Delicious!

    RIVINGTON BAR & GRILL: SUPERFANTASTIC IN LONDON

    by DAO Written Jul 8, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    I was invited to dinner at this absolutely fantastic restaurant and enjoyed every single bite. The Rivington has a nice Bistro décor and the service is professional. I started with a cold pint of Peroni beer to get the evening started. While sitting at my nice white linen covered table I had a good look over the menu and specials board. Usually the terms ‘British Cuisine’ can lead to a bit of trepidation, but everything sounded great. The Rivington specialises in dishes and food sourced across Britain and Ireland from seafood to steaks. I started with a large Eggs Royale and it was superb. This was followed with one of the less-expensive steaks and a glass of house red wine. Absolutely superb! I don’t eat deserts but the other dinners raved about their after meal treats.

    The Rivington is an absolute first class gourmet British Restaurant and a real star in a city that suffers from too many mediocre venues. It is a shore walk from Liverpool Street Station and is great for a business or romantic meal.

    To start of your week, try their (Un)Screw Mondays when there are no corkage fees.

    You can book online and they also have another ;location in Greenwich and 2 in Dubai.

    (A discretionary service charge of 12.5% is added to your bill, but it all goes straight to the staff.)

    Opening Times:
    Breakfast 8am to 11am Monday to Friday
    Lunch 12noon to 5pm Monday to Friday
    Dinner 5pm to 11pm Monday to Saturday (10pm Sunday)
    Weekend Brunch 11am to 4pm Saturday & Sunday

    CHICKANOS: MEXICAN - ASIAN STYLE - WEST YORKSHIRE

    by DAO Updated Jul 6, 2014


    Chicanos rocks! I thought it was a ‘fast food’ outlet and imagined fried burgers. Wow – was I wrong! The second you walk in you smell fresh meat being grilled over flames. The guys who work here could not have been friendlier. I ordered a Gourmet Meal and it was awesome! I had fresh grilled chicken that just tasted live Heaven.

    The say they do Peri-Peri and friend chicken, but it’s the grilled sandwiches they do to perfection. And at a reasonable price. Just order and they hand you a slip with your number. After its been grilled to perfection, they will call your number out. Enjoy!

    Favorite Dish:

    Gourmet Meal.
    Grilled chicken breast, Gourmet Bun, mayo, pickles (gherkins), mango and lettuce. Served with a cold drink.

    WOLKITE KITFO: ETHIOPIAN AT THE ARSENAL (London)

    by DAO Written Jul 3, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    I can assure you that this is authentic and lovely Ethiopian cooking at it's best. I used to live in Ethiopia and was so pleased to enjoy an amazingly mouth-watering meal. The service is friendly and helpful. If you have never tried Ethiopian food, you are in for a real treat here at Wolkite Kitfo. The ingredients were fresh, tasty and cooked to perfection. And the authentic cold St Georges Beer definitely added to my dinning pleasure. Vegetarians can also experience probably the best non-meat options in the world in terms of cuisine. In terms of taste and value for money - this is a top London restaurant. They even get the hardest part to make outside of Ethiopia - the Injera itself - perfect. It is located at the massive Arsenal Stadium, so very easy to find.

    I highly recommend Wolkite Kitfo!

    Open: 7 days a week 12pm - 11pm

    Favorite Dish:

    ማኅበራዊ (Mahibererawi)
    Combination Beef, Lamb and vegetarian dishes homemade cottage cheese. Served on Injera (flat bread). And a cold St George’s beer brewed in Ethiopia!

    BLUEPRINT CAFÉ: THAMES VIEW IN LONDON

    by DAO Written May 24, 2014


    The Blueprint is an interesting choice. It’s located at the end of Shad Thames, an old cobblestoned area overlooking Tower Bridge right on the river. The views are excellent and all the tables have small blue binoculars so you can study some of the features of Tower Bridge or have a closer look at boats as they sail by. I had a table just in from the window and sat on a nice sofa. A very relaxing environment. Head Chef, Martyn Moody, and his team do make some very good food. I am glad I enjoyed a meal here, but the portions are a little too French like for my sort of appetite. I gorged on the very delicious fresh assorted fresh breads. Everything tasted fantastic. The service was fun and friendly. The views awesome on a very sunny evening. All in all, a very nice restaurant.

    OPENING TIMES:
    LUNCH
    Monday - Saturday: 12.00pm - 2.45pm, Sunday: 12.00pm - 4.00pm
    DINNER
    Monday - Saturday: 6.00pm - 10.45pm

    Favorite Dish:
    I ordered from the daily Market Menu:
    Lunch: Two courses 15.00 Three courses 20.00
    Dinner: Two courses 18.00 Three courses 23.00

    • Ham hock terrine, spiced pineapple, sourdough toast
    - Lacked a lot of taste, overpowered by the bread
    • Herons farm chicken, smoked leeks, potato fondants
    - Fell off the bone, delicious, small portion
    • British cheese selection, Carr’s biscuits (supplement 2.50)

    ALBANNACH: THE BEST WHISKEY BAR EVER

    by DAO Written May 11, 2014


    I have dinned, and sampled whiskeys, at Whisky Bars & restaurants across the world. This is my favourite. Albannach is an interesting Whiskey Bar virtually in Trafalgar Square. I was greeted by a most pleasant waitress and well looked after. I enjoyed the Albannach sausage board as a starter. 3 different flavoured sausages and they were absolutely delicious. For my main I enjoyed Fillet of Beef Wellington. Absolutely outstanding. I had the beef rare with a glass of house red wine. Fantastic. I even enjoyed a cold Albannach branded beer. The best part? For an upscale Whisky Bar in a world class location – they have whiskies you can afford to sample. Sadly this is not true of many Whiskey bars in less appealing locations in London. This also holds true in many countries. A great experience.

    Please note 2 things below.

    One will save you money. The first is that Albannach is not massive and it stays busy. Expect it to be packed. There is a reason they stay busy. The second is that the do deals (like 50% off!) on the OpenTable Website. Get in there! And if you save money and enjoy your experience like I did – do not forget to rate this tip!

    Favorite Dish:

    • Albannach sausage board as a starter
    • Fillet of Beef Wellington – rare
    • Albannach branded beer and a glass of house red

    ROADHOUSE – COVENT GARDEN: AWESOME IN LONDON!

    by DAO Written May 4, 2014


    The Roadhouse rocks! OK, as an American I can use American lingo to describe one of the best dining experiences in London. If you want great food, fantastic service and a vibrant environment, you need to come and enjoy a meal at the Roadhouse. I booked a table with the 50% discount on food. When I arrived I was greeted at the door like a VIP and escorted to my table. The Roadhouse is a bar and nightclub later at night. I had a dinner reservation for 7pm and I can assure you the music levels were pleasant and you can have a conversation. My waiter was awesome as well. Greg is a credit to the Roadhouse and waiters everywhere. He made sure that I knew about the 2 for 1 drink deals to get things started. Greg and all the staff were great and I cannot recommend eating and drinking at the Roadhouse enough.

    The menu is definitely ‘American’ with lots of Tex-Mex options. They have some great options for starters including what they call ‘Small Bites’. You can get great dishes like Jalapeño Cream Cheese Peppers and Bbq Chicken Wings on deals of 3 dishes or 5 dishes for a discounted price. The main dishes include Burgers, Sandwiches, Fajitas, Steaks, Combos and Salads with side orders like Cajun Onion Rings and Cheesy Chips. Essentially all 4 of the American food groups are served: meat, beer, nachos and more meat.

    If you want a drink or 3, they have:
    HAPPY HOURS:
    Monday – Friday 2 for 1 from 5.30pm - 7.30pm
    Saturday Happy Hour from 5.30pm - 7.30pm
    Sundays 2 for 1 from 6.30pm - 8.30pm (times may vary on Sunday)

    If that doesn’t float your boat – try the FISHBOWLS. These are a massive 50oz drinks with names like ‘Rasberrylicious’. And no, no animals or fish are harmed in the making of these mega drinks.

    Please use the Toptable Website to book your meal and any deal. They have table reservations up to 10pm. After that you will find out what the name of the DJ is or you can check out their cool website. They also have live bands every night, DJ’s up to 3am and even ‘Rockaoke’ if you want to express your inner Aerosmith with a large room full of strangers. Also make sure you gave a look at their special offers page on their website and ask about the ‘I ♥ Roadhouse’ Card.

    2 IMPORTANT POINTS!
    1. Service (charges) are not included. Please tip great servers like Greg 10-20% based upon the full price of your meal if you get the discount deal. They work really hard and deserve your support.
    2. The Roadhouse is an adult restaurant and venue. It is strictly 18+ and the dress code is smart casual.


    OPENING HOURS:
    Monday – Saturday 5:30 pm – 3:00 am
    Sunday 5:30 pm – 12:00 am

    Favorite Dish:

    I started with the Chicken Fajita Nachos . On the menu its says ‘for 2 people sharing’. No way! I was not about to share this slice of heaven with anyone. This was served with large, moist, chunks of chicken with jalapeños and roasted peppers. They put the guacamole, salsa and sour cream somewhat on the side so you can mix it all to absolute perfection.

    My main meal was the absolutely mouth-watering New York Melt. The menu describes this as “Our 8oz sirloin loaded with sautéed mushrooms, caramelised onions and melted cheese. All served with a choice of french fries or mash potatoes, peppercorn or red wine sauce & salad garnish”. I ordered this rare and it was perfection on a plate.

    This was all washed down with some 2 for 1 Amstel beers. A great meal, a great deal and a great experience.

    AWESOME !

    MASALA ZONE: TOO FAST (INDIAN) FOOD - LONDON

    by DAO Written Feb 7, 2014


    Something is wrong when the waiter tells you that a full ‘Thali’ will be out in seconds and that ordering a fresh Nan bread would slow that down. A Thali can be meat or vegetarian and is a range of dishes served on a large platter for you to mix and match. Normally this is the, most expensive dish on the menu of any Indian cuisine restaurant offering this and it takes a while to cook it all and put it all together to bring to your table.

    The food arrived in less than 3 minutes. I have had some wonderful meals in Indian restaurants. Not usually in London and not here. This is a fast food outlet. I left hungry and disappointed. I also found the cost of the beer excessive. I would advise finding a proper Indian restaurant rather than this food factory. You can get a lot better quality for the price.

    Please note:
    You will see this chain of restaurants advertise in the Tube. If you are on a budget in terms of both time and money – you can find one of these joints at the following location across London:

    Bayswater, Camden Town, Covent Garden, Earl's Court, Fulham, Islington and Soho

    This location is open:
    Mon to Fri 1230 – 1500, 1730 – 2300 Sat 1230 – 2300 Sun 1230 – 2230
    Sadly they also deliver and offer deals on their website.

    COQUINE: TOO CUTE IN LONDON

    by DAO Written Feb 7, 2014


    Coquine translates as 'mischievous', 'naughty', 'saucy' or even 'rascal'. If you like a small boisterous venue with a large cocktail menu – this is for you. Food was good. Not great, good. I don’t recommend the Sea Bass only due to the squid ink risotto. The staff are always ready to get you another drink or bring your food when you are ready. I used the 40% offer from a decent set menu choice by booking through Toptable – linked below.

    It’s not a big place and the cocktail bar is right in the centre of things. My food tasted a little burnt and the vegetables were greasy. Presentation was good, portions a little on the small side. They do try and provide a great service, good meal and nice atmosphere. One of the guys even held the door open when I left.

    This place gets lots of good reviews and recommendations. I had a good meal, just a bit more for small groups than a solo business diner. They do offer – very interestingly – 50% off food to groups on weekends. Hmmm….

    Drinks are cheap and they definitely have a very large and interesting cocktail menu.

    GAY Friendly

    Open Mon-Sat 9am-6pm

    Favorite Dish:
    I had the grilled Sea bass with squid ink risotto and cherry tomatoes. I have never tried squid ink risotto and it’s nasty. I wish I had tried one of the other great looking dishes. My starter was a ‘Mezze’ with olives (average) and some good humus and falafel. Book in on either the 40% or 50% offer through Toptable!

    KNUTSFORD WINE BAR: GLORIOUS FOOD IN CHESHIRE !

    by DAO Updated Feb 3, 2014


    Want a guaranteed great meal and entertainment too? The Knutsford Wine Bar has it all. Located in the Old Chapel and Grammar School right in the heart of lively Knutsford. It has an intimate and lively feel to it and the staff are fun and really helpful. And the food? Incredible! They are always changing the menu, but I have never had anything less than a fantastic experience when I eat here. The varied menu means you could have a Thai started with and Italian main dish. Their wine selection is second to none. They even won awards in 2003 & 2004 from Cheshire Life Magazine for their superior food.

    The Knutsford Wine Bar also has loads of live entertainment. As they say themselves:

    ‘Check out our live acts, live bands, live music, our menu and our wine list by visiting’
    www.thebestof.co.uk/knutsford/2/events.aspx
    or call us on 01565 750459

    They describe it as a complete night out and it is!

    Excellent for business travellers staying at Cottons Hotel.

    And a bit of history:

    A Chapel stood on the site built in the 14th century. It was replaced by the Parish Church built in 1744. It also served as the Grammar School until 1887.

    Favorite Dish:
    I try different dishes every time I visit and they have all been fantastic. I have included a picture of their current menus.

    The Thames Head Inn: Great pub food at the Thames Head.

    by worldkiwi Updated Aug 16, 2013

    The Thames Head Inn, near Kemble in Gloucestershire, is handily located about a 2km walk from the marker stone at the source of the Thames River. I stopped here for lunch one sunny Monday afternoon in July 2013 with my cousin. We just timed our arrival right before the chef went home at 2pm and ordered from the lunch menu, as opposed to the standard pub-menu. The food was delicious and very originally presented and prepared. The bar staff were typically what any traveller looks for in a country pub - friendly and warm. I would thoroughly recommend a stop for lunch here (but arrive earlier than we did!). I think guests can stay overnight here too.

    MUYA: GOOD ETHIOPIAN IN LONDON

    by DAO Updated Jul 4, 2013


    Muya has only been open a few months, but it’s a real winner. The hardest part of Ethiopian cuisine outside of Ethiopia is getting the Injera right. They do a great job. It’s a modern and stylish restaurant that is intimate and cosy. It’s a family run business and they are from Addis Ababa. The food is excellent. I had Doro Wot (chicken and egg with a spicy red Berbere sauce) and Ayib Begomen (cottage cheese and spinach) along with some authentic St. George’s beers. Excellent. I received a warm greeting, great service and a nice atmosphere. This is a great find. They do coffee if you want to stop by. Coffee was invented in Ethiopia, so you get the real thing. Great for a quiet business meal, new food experience or a romantic evening.

    THE GEORGE HOTEL: GASTROPUB IN SCOTLAND

    by DAO Updated Jul 4, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness



    I came across this really cool gastropub, bar, beer garden when I was having a very long day. My satnav in my car had taken me the worn way and I had to drive over 400 miles in 11 day instead of 200. On top of that there were signs north of Inverary telling me the road would close in about 1 hour. I was driving south! When I walked into the George I was impressed. It’s very dark and old worldly. Lots of stone, 4 large fireplaces and original wood features. The George was originally 2 houses built in 17770. It really is stepping back in time inside. They still use the fireplaces as well.

    I was greeted warmly and I explained my long day and need to get served quickly. They also knew the road would close and I would be 35 miles on the wrong side of my hotel. They were very helpful and I chose 2 great sounding dishes. The whole menu looked delicious. When my starter came, I was surprised at the size of the scallops. Absolutely beautiful to look at and eat. My main course was fillet of pork on a mushroom risotto. Absolutely succulent meat and a very tasty dish. Because I still had miles to drive I had to pass on a great looking wine list and even a nice dram of whiskey. This was equally hard because of just how ell stocked and inviting the bar looked.

    Considering I was in a hurry, I enjoyed my great meal, even if I was drinking diet coke.

    The George has won at least one award and does change its menu. They source their beef and lamb from the West Highlands. Seafood is fresh from the nearby port of Tarbert and their salmon is from Loch Fyne – about 100 meters away! They have over 100 single malt whiskeys and real ales to wash down your very good quality food.

    Food is served from 12 noon to 9pm

    Favorite Dish:

    I had a fantastic meal. My starter and main meal were described like this on the menu:
    Starter - Pan fried king scallops served on a bed of cauliflower emulsion, grilled chorizo and rocket.
    Main - Roasted Ayrshire pork fillet served on a bed of wild mushroom and sage risotto with cider jus, seared spinach and grilled streaky bacon.

    I wish I had not been driving. The wine and whiskey list looked great. I had a diet coke.
