Review of The Ritz, Mayfair

The Ritz

Opened on London's Piccadilly in May 1906, the Ritz has seen a procession of kings, queens, presidents and high-end celebrities pass through its revolving doors: today, it is on every tourist's shopping list of must-see attractions in London. It is a hotel that simply oozes jaw-dropping magnificence - those who have no intention of staying or even eating here can be seen wandering the halls, gazing at the splendour of it all.

For unashamed indulgence, take dinner in one of the stunningly beautiful dining rooms, lit by chandeliers linked by gilded garlands, with floor-to-ceiling mirror panels and a Poseidon effigy surveying the scene from an alcove.

The cooking tries to match the lavishness of its surroundings and Anglo-French luxuries abound. Beluga caviar opens the account at around 185 but - for less extravagance - try the Ritz Caesar salad or Cornish lobster bisque laced with Armagnac. Moving on, you might choose mignon of veal with foie gras, sweet-and-sour balsamic sauce and pickled raisins or simple grilled turbot. Desserts are unashamedly showy: iced blood orange parfait with citrus sorbet and orange sauce, for example.

Other unmissable attractions include slap-up breakfasts and legendary afternoon teas of cucumber sandwiches, scones and cakes in the evocative Palm Court. The wine list is an aristocrat, with a heavy tilt towards the pedigree French classics - if you're feeling flush.
