Michelin Starred Restaurants in London to book for 2023
The best London Michelin starred restaurants tend to have the longest reservation wait times. Depending on the day of the week and size of the party, you may need to make a reservation weeks in advance. So if you’re planning to be a bit more organised in 2023, there are some central London restaurants that you should get booked well in advance. Especially if it’s for a special occasion. Indeed, there’s no better complement to a stay in a luxury serviced apartment than to sample the best cuisine in London. They’re only round the corner, too!
London’s West End and Soho is so vibrant that it can feel like you’ll never manage to do it all. However a serviced apartment here means that it’s all on your doorstep. And that includes the modern institution that is Sketch. A destination more than a restaurant, the plethora of spaces that exist within Sketch mean that you could lose entire days here! The Lecture Room & Library is the space for delectable dining in visually stunning surroundings. Tasting and a la carte menus showcase the best European flavours with creative expertise. So dinner here is always an experience.
If you’re staying in Fitzrovia, you may be planning to enjoy some surrounding museums and heritage destinations. This makes Kitchen Table the ideal culinary destination. Dining in this 2 star restaurant is a real education, where your dishes come as a surprise and are accompanied by a detailed explanation from chef James Knappett and his team. This works because the restaurant is intimate and boutique, seating just 19. Obviously, this means that you must be organised to get a seat at the table.
Refurbished in 2019, this 3 star restaurant is a soft and welcoming antidote to the many formal institutions around Mayfair. If you’re missing home comforts, it’s an ideal destination which has welcome and kindness at its heart. The seasonal menu is thoughtfully sourced and presented with absolute dainty perfection. The whole restaurant, from decor to menu, is about celebrating craftsmanship.
A long standing institution that shows that standards don’t need to slip as fame rises, restaurant Gordon Ramsey has retained its 3 stars since 2001. With perfectly judged flavours, constantly inventive menu advances, and polished service, it’s clear to see why this restaurant has the longest average wait times for a reservation. The Michelin guide says that it is worth a special journey, but when you stay in a Chelsea luxury serviced apartment this is basically your local!
Situated in a building that was originally built in 1911 as Michelin’s London HQ, it’s fitting that this restaurant boasts 2 stars. Especially when you dine under the iconic Michelin Man art deco stained glass window. Classic French haute cuisine and impeccable service are at the heart of this restaurant. So it’s understandably self billed as ‘unashamedly fine dining’. It’s perfect in its traditional and classic approach.
As a famously experimental chef, this Knightsbridge destination is all about elevating the experience. Heston Blumenthal has taken menu inspiration from historic British gastronomy. But of course it’s not as simple as that. The starting point may be the court of Henry VIII and Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, but what you receive is of course something extremely contemporary. All set amongst elegant and understated surroundings that look out over Hyde Park.
When you organise to stay in a central London luxury serviced apartment, one of these Michelin starred restaurants will be on your doorstep. Make sure to book in advance and enjoy the luxury and precision of these restaurants to perfectly complement the comfort of your apartment.
