Review on Kaspar's at the Savoy

Kaspar's at the Savoy, formerly The River Room restaurant is set in the iconic Savoy Hotel, originally opened in August 1889, it was built by impresario Richard D'Oyly Carte with profits from his Gilbert and Sullivan operas. Now owned by Fairmont Hotels, the hotel was closed for a period of three years while it underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment programme, reopening in October 2010.

Kaspar's takes its name from the three foot black cat, sculpted in wood by Basil Ionides in 1926, that sits as a good-luck guest at tables where otherwise an unlucky number of thirteen diners would be present. The sumptuous room has been designed by Robert Angell in a glamorous Art Deco style with a central circular oyster bar, beneath a stunning crystal chandelier. Affording panoramic views of the River Thames and London's famous landmarks, the restaurant has dark wood tables with teal blue chairs set on black marbled chequerboard floors, underneath a beautiful silver leaf ceiling.

As you would expect there is an array of ultra-fresh fish to choose from including oysters, caviar, smoked fish, Dover sole, cured sea bass and sea bream. Meat lovers are not forgotten either and you might choose Salt Marsh lamb cutlets with roasted garlic and rosemary jus or Hereford rib-eye with peppercorn or béarnaise sauce. Desserts bring on board such delights as sticky toffee pudding with rum cherries, butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream or gooseberry and amaretto trifle.

A carefully crafted wine list complements the menu, knowledgeably garnered from vintners in the best growing regions of the world.
