The Ritz RestaurantA meal at The Ritz Restaurant at the grand Ritz Hotel, or at any of the Ritz restaurants for that matter, is seen as the epitome of British high society living. A lesson in unadulterated opulence, the dining room features towering marble columns, soaring floor to ceiling windows, vast kaleidoscopic ceiling frescoes, gilded neoclassical statues and a spectacular garland chandelier. The style of cooking follows the 'palace style' popularised by influential French chef Auguste Escoffier, "practically the patron saint of chefs" (The Telegraph), who invented famous dishes including peach Melba and bombe Nero at the Ritz's restaurant. His style of haute cuisine is upheld by executive chef John Williams who was tempted away from Claridge's to work at the Ritz. Adjoining the indoor dining room is a lovely outdoor terrace, the perfect spot to while away your afternoon when the heat starts to soar in stately, wrought iron chairs in front of elegant tables laden with crisp white tablecloths and gleaming tableware. The hotel and its restaurants are endorsed by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, and regular guests include politicians, film stars, members of the English aristocracy and American tycoons. There will be plenty of star-gazing opportunities here so be sure to gawk all you want. After all, it's part of the hefty price tag.

Dress code: jacket and tie. Jeans are not permitted in The Ritz Restaurant and trainers and sportswear are not permitted in any public area of the Hotel.
