The Ritz Restaurant is considered by many to be the most beautiful restaurant in Europe and never is this so true as in the summer months when its doors are swung open and its magnificent outdoor Terrace revealed. For the most part, Britain’s weather is consistent only in its unpredictability, so when the sun does shine its resident diners flock to this cornerstone of London luxury to be dazzled by its mouth-watering dishes and covetable views.
Romanced by the verdant expanse of the Royal Green Park and the sidewalk sounds of one of the world’s most vibrant cities, diners here understand the simple fact that everything in this life tastes infinitely sweeter when enjoyed al fresco.
It is near impossible to find a generously-sized outdoor area such as this in the heart of London, as the Terrace’s popularity attests. Though advance bookings are recommended to avoid disappointment, a selection of tables are reserved each day in anticipation of hotel guests, with tailcoat-clad waiters always at the ready to help eager sun-worshippers take their seats out of doors. Since its opening in 1906, the magnificent Ritz Restaurant has left an indelible impression on all who have dined there. As grand as it is intimate, The Ritz Restaurant is the last bastion of palace- style dining, seamlessly combining seasonal British ingredients with Escoffier-influenced classical French dishes.
Executive Chef John Williams MBE stands at the helm of this majestic grand dame, creating classic culinary delights prepared with contemporary influences. His dedication to consistently creating distinctive dishes, precisely executed and impeccably presented has led this world famous restaurant to surpass diners’ every expectation, every time. The restaurant was most recently named “Third Best All-Round Restaurant in the UK” by the Harden’s Restaurant Survey and became the recipient of the prestigious accolade of three Rosettes by the AA for Culinary Excellence last year.
Should the weather be less clement, fear not, for The Ritz Restaurant’s interiors are also sure to impress even the most adept restaurant-goer. The vast floor to ceiling windows overlooking Green Park, the rich and varied use of soft pink, pale green and veined white marble, and the dazzling garlands of chandeliers reflected in the wall of panelled mirror combine to create one of the most spectacular interiors in London, as charming by day as by night.
