Even after living in the area for many years and my old university department being just round the corner from this bar, I only recently visited this place a couple of weeks ago.
The bar is part of the Gore Hotel – you enter via the main entrance and the bar is on your left. The interior has a classic feel, dark wood and low lights. I went on a Monday night, so it was reasonably quiet which was an added bonus.
It’s a lovely meet-up venue for a few casual drinks in a prestigious area – Kensington Gardens and The Royal Albert Hall are just moments away.
Scott’s is a renowned seafood restaurant in Mayfair. The decor evokes an old school glamour feel. I had the mixed beetroot salad for starters followed by fillet of cod (I wish I chose a different main course, didn’t enjoy it that much) but what really made the meal was the warm bramley apple pie with icecream – never tasted anything soo delicious…
I recently went out to this restaurant. I’d heard of Zuma mainly through magazines where celebs had been spotted.
On entry the interior is modern/plush and there is a bar section to the right, where apparently lots of hot women go to snag a wealthy man – you men are soo lucky 🙂
My partner knew the owner as a friend, so he managed to get seats in the section where the cooks are opposite cooking. I wasn’t too sure whether I would like the food, but boy was it amazing! I had crab and spinach for starters, steak (small pieces) and black cod (you have to try this), finished off with warm chocolate cake and icecream – heaven!
The service was excellent as the woman who served us was very friendly/approachable. Zuma is probably the best place I’ve tried so far. It is expensive but a very fashionable/trendy place and definitely worth a visit…
