Dinner at the Admiral Codrington, Chelsea, London

Last night we were treated to dinner at the Admiral Codrington in Chelsea (or The Cod as it’s affectionately known).  I’ve been to this gastro pub a few times before but only to drink, never for dinner.  They have a cute little terrace to the side of the main building which is perfect for sunny…

CERU Soho, London – Levantine Restaurant

When I think of small sharing plates, the cuisine that tends to spring to mind is Spanish.  Tapas is such a fun way to eat as I love being able to try a little bit of a lot of different flavours.  Recently I’ve also been able to discover the Italian version of tapas and tonight…

Talli Joe – Covent Garden, London, UK

Talli Joe makes the claim on its website that it is voted the Best Indian Restaurant in London.  In a city with literally hundreds if not thousands of Indian restaurants, this is a steep claim to make so it was time to put it to the test.  We were invited along one evening to try…

Cicchetti Covent Garden – London, UK

Cicchetti Covent Garden was the destination for dinner tonight.  We’d been invited to review their menu and we were very excited.  I’d checked it out online at lunch and had been starving ever since!  Everything sounded so so appealing.  The concept at Cicchetti Covent Garden is small plates to share, a kind of Italian Tapas,…

Dinner at PerBacco – Parsons Green, London

After our fabulous Bottomless Brunch at PerBacco Stefano invited us back to try his dinner menu.  They have recently redesigned the menu and it now has a lighter Spring feel for the warmer weather.  It’s a small menu focusing on fantastic produce with a few specials that change weekly.   We were excited for Dinner at…

Brunch at Arlo’s Balham, London

It was the first nice day of the year and what better way to spend it than a nice long leisurely brunch.  Arlo’s had invited me to try their recently revamped brunch menu so we headed to South London to check it out.  Brunch at Arlo’s Balham was the perfect way to start the day!…

Iberica Restaurant – Marylebone, London

Today I’d been invited to try the menu at Iberica Restaurant.  Normally I take Dan to these things but today I’d chosen to take my mum because she’s a big tapas sceptic!  She’s only had tapas a few times before but she’s never really been impressed.  The first time was at a UK high street…

Bottomless Brunch at PerBacco – Parsons Green, London

PerBacco (meaning Oh Wow! in Italian) is a relatively new Italian restaurant on the Fulham Rd in Parsons Green.  It’s only been open for about 3 months but already it has had some fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor.  Chef Stefano is in the process of redesigning the dinner menu for Spring, which we would get…

Dead Dolls House – Islington, London

Tonight we’d been invited to the The Dead Dolls House in Islington, London!  The name conjures up all sorts of imagery so we were intrigued to find out what was in store for us. I’m not sure what I was expecting, maybe a house of horrors but it was a lot less intimidating than I…

Jazzgir – South Quay, Canary Wharf, London

There’s a new restaurant opened up in South Quay, Canary Wharf that’s causing a bit of a buzz.  Jazzgir has only been open for a few months but it’s already making a name for itself in the area.  We were invited along one night to try out Jazzgir and  see what this new concept in…

Côte Brasserie – Valentine’s Day Menu

I’ve always been a big fan of Côte Brasserie.  I love French food and although they have multiple restaurants all over the country, each one that I go to seems to have its own personality.  It feels like a little French Bistro and reminds me so much of the year I spent living in Paris….
