I have always wanted to visit Winter Garden for afternoon tea, but never did. I am glad we finally made it for dinner instead. It is a delight to walk in to the Landmark Hotel and be welcomed with the most charming arched entrance, lit up very warmly. The most enchanting view was the tall palm trees and very high ceiling, almost like a very large green house but prettier.
The entrance / exit
Warm bread with butter and sea salt; complimentary champagne cocktails
Macakarel Tartare with avocado, preserved lemon & dill
Very light and elegant flavours. I thought the preserved lemons and the wavy crisp gave it that extra something.
Pan seared livers with spiced lentils & chorizo
Normally not a fan of livers, this was fabulous. P liked it so much, he wanted to order a second plate!
Roasted Pollock with Jersey royal potatoes, braised fennel & citrus vinaigrette
Chargrilled Bavette Beef Steak with vine tomatoes, chunky chips and Béarnaise sauce
The fish was beautifully presented, crispy skin, fresh and well seasoned. Steak was cooked well with absolutely good chunky chips and Bernaise sauce.
Sticky Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce & Vanilla Cream
Vanilla Cheesecake with Apricots & White Chocolate
Remember to wander around the 100 years old hotel after dinner. This beautiful surroundings is not to be missed.
Dinner at Winter Garden will normally set you off at an average of £25 for one main course, So with the 3 course menu at £35 inclusive of a champagne cocktail, I thought it was of great value. Definitely worth a visit. London Restaurant Festival is ending on the 27th October so hurry before this fantastic value is gone.
Beautiful, elegant and romantic ambience in the 100 year old building. Food was glorious and staff were very kind and friendly which makes it a very pleasant evening.
Why frown when all's wonderful?! Just smiles were intact when we left.
Will I return?
Yes, and next time will definitely be for Afternoon Tea.
