Bocconcino Restaurant, Mayfair, London

The weather in London is beautiful at the moment so it meant a lovely walk this evening to Berkley Square and to Bocconcino Restaurant.  Bocconcino had invited us for a complimentary meal to try their Italian fayre and, as that’s my favourite cuisine I was very excited! I love Mediterranean flavours and fresh seafood and…

Fancy Crab, Marylebone, London

It was a beautiful summer’s evening as Dan and I strolled to Marylebone.  We’d been invited for a complimentary meal at Fancy Crab to taste the food and we’d come hungry!  We walked up and well, we couldn’t miss it. I loved the decor outside so whimsical and playful.  It was like going for dinner…

Lentil Feta Mint Salad

A few weeks ago when I made dinner for my Swedish Friends, I made this Lentil Feta Mint Salad and promised you all the recipe.  Well, I made it again last night and took note of the quantities  this time around to share with you all.

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…

Wilde Aparthotel by Staycity – The Strand, London

Staycity Aparthotels have just opened a new hotel in a central London location!  The Wilde Aparthotel is located just off the Strand in the perfect position to explore everything London has to offer.  I’d been invited to spend the evening there to see what I thought of the new apartments and give a review. When…

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,…

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!…

Experience London with Tripadvisor Attractions

It’s not very often that you get the opportunity to be a tourist in your own city.  Living in London it’s all too easy to take this amazing place for granted.  That’s why I jumped at the chance when TripAdvisor gave me the opportunity to purchase a London attraction from their website and really experience…

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…

The Kallima Spa at the Hilton Syon Park Hotel, London

This weekend my mum and I were spending a night at the Hilton, Syon Park.  We were booked in for a Spa Treatment at the Kallima Spa.  This would be followed by a 3 course dinner in the Marco Pierre White Restaurant and an overnight stay. The bit I was most excited about was the…
