The most Instagrammable luxurious restaurants in London
What gives a luxury restaurant its edge? A dining experience is topped off by different things to different customers – for some it’s in the service, or perhaps the food, and for others the surroundings make the difference. That WOW factor is certainly a massive part of the luxury dining experience, and the most luxurious restaurants in London have this in spades. They can make even the quickest snap look amazing on your Instagram grid. So where should you head for the most stunning and picturesque dining experiences?
For some restaurants, that moment of first stepping into the place simply takes your breath away. Making a massive first impression when you walk through the doors is Circlo Popolare. When you enter this Fitzrovia establishment, you’re immediately transported into a Sicilian trattoria. Floor-to-ceiling bottles adorn the walls, backlit to great effect, while foliage drapes from the ceilings and pillars. If you’re not feeling full of sunshine from all this, the Italian menu will certainly do the trick.
The Coral Room at the Bloomsbury Hotel (with charming terrace dining in The Coral Garden) will take you straight back to the 1920’s. The art deco bar is an elegant and simply stunning backdrop. For light bites, afternoon tea or just drinks, the surroundings here simply ooze glamour. Perfect to make a splash on your Insta.
Dining room surroundings are so much more than eye candy! As you take in the opulence that encases your table, a dining experience is simply elevated beyond others. Bob Bob Ricard is such an example, inspired by the Orient Express. With elegant detail at every angle, from the booth seating to the ceiling decor, this iconic Soho restaurant is the master of setting the scene. Plus, here the dining experience is completed by a ‘press for Champagne’ button. Surely a feature to make one of the most luxurious restaurants in London!
A visually stunning outside dining experience should change with the seasons. Especially in London, where seasonal change is so characteristic of the city itself. Dalloway Terrace has perfected this, and artfully evolves its terrace display to reflect the season. Come evening, twinkling string lights offer a sprinkle of magic, and the outdoor heaters and retractable roof mean that diners remain comfortable in this magical hidey hole.
We can all agree that views across London never fail to be spectacular. So how do you elevate these landscape views above the norm? Through framing, of course! Sky Garden has the lot, from panoramic views to indoor foliage. London never looked more picturesque than from a table at this establishment.
One thing that the most luxurious restaurants in London hold common is how pretty their plates are. Dishes that simply have to be photographed are a common feature. So it makes sense to visit Clos Maggiore, where newly appointed Chef Patron, Roxanne Lange, will be looking to make her mark. We know that her dishes look stunning, and in these most romantic of surroundings, they promise to be even more Instagrammable!
While a lot of london restaurant glamour takes you back into the past, sketch London’s bathrooms hurtle you into the future! Whichever part of sketch you’re visiting for dinner or drinks (and let’s face it, they are pretty Instagrammable in their own rights!) visit the pod cubicle bathrooms for a visual experience to beat all others!
Sometimes, the most stunning vistas are found when you look up! The Harrods Dining Hall is actually a collection of six distinctive restaurants. So there’s something to suit every palate and every mood. Whichever part of the halls your appetite takes you to, though, make sure you check out the spectacular mural adorned ceiling.
