Review on Library Restaurant,The Rubens at the Palace

The Library Restaurant is situated in the Rubens hotel, a dream Belgravia location for tourists and sightseers as it stands proudly just opposite Buckingham Palace: from most windows, guests can spot the comings-and-goings of the guardsmen on the Royal Mews and there's the added bonus of stepping outside to admire the Changing of the Guard.

The Library Restaurant has the cosseted intimacy of a gentleman's club. Despite the name, there's hardly a book in sight (no need to keep quiet here!); instead, richly embroidered fabrics, flickering candles, comfortable armchairs and impeccable old-school service set the tone. The dinner menu has a strong European bias, and typical dishes might include a signature salad of scallops, crayfish and crispy pancetta, calf's liver with sage mash, and pannacotta with kiwi and crystallised vanilla pod.

It's also worth exploring the comprehensive wine list, especially the selections from the Buchard Finlayson winery in South Africa; otherwise, France is the big player. An extensive buffet-style carvery is available in the separate Old Masters Restaurant.
