French | South Kensington, South West London

I took my wife for her Birthday, she loves flavours and Claude Bosi was everything I'd hoped for. I've not been in the building this millenium but it's now in beautiful condition. We started with a lovely glass of Champagne whilst we considered the menu and the Chef came out and was speaking to all his customers. It's great that the name is actually running the place. The staff were really top notch, they stood out both with their enthusiasm for the job and their quiet care of the customer. My wife has a bad back and the initial chair didn't have a high enough back to support her, a request to change the chair was made that the waitress quietly and efficiently carried out. When you are somewhere like Claude Bosi you need people to guide you through things and from the amuse bouches to the desert, we had a seem less stream of information that was enough to enhance our pleasure with out feeling we were being lectured. I had the rabbit as main and the chicken as starter with Vacherin for dessert. All were top notch and all had more than expected. I hope the staff get as much pleasure making the dishes as I had eating them. The experience was not cheap but it was worth it. A fantastic experience congratulations to Claude and all his team.

Excellent place for a drink and a nice atmosphere. There was a special offer on the Monday so the wine was at off-licence price! My only criticism was for the Avo- cetta which was unexciting and bread too thick. Otherwise recommended More

Second visit here and both times the food has been very good. Good ambiance and buzzing restaurant. Food is served quickly - Tabla para picar sharing board is a bit disappointing - its best to order individual dishes - goats cheese and spinach croquettes and the broken eggs star dishes. On this occasion we were slightly rushed to pay the bill but the waitress apologised and gave good service overall. More

International | South Kensington, South West London

Great place to have a business lunch in the area. You will get a variety of mains with at least three types of meats and fish, not often you can find such diversity in the menu. Sides are especially good and work as starters as well. Plenty of vegetarian options. Coconut Lavender mocktail was just wonderful, so refreshing! Also tried caramel cheesecake which was served with berry’s sorbet, neat and delicious. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very calm, and you can talk without extra effort hear and to be heard since the place is spacious and is a bit hidden to the side from the lobby area. To add, there’s a garden space too. More

We enjoyed our dinner at Patara, the food was quite good. Yum pad Thai. Green curry wasn’t very spicy considering it had a two chilli rating on the menu, I think it needed a little more kick. The wine list was very expensive so we didn’t get drinks. Nice ambience with table by the window. More

We visited this restaurant before going to a show at The Royal Albert Hall. It wasn’t very busy but it was early. We chose from the fixed price menu which was very reasonably priced. My mum is a coeliac and they were very helpful with what she could have. The food was yummy and the service was very good. All in all a very pleasant experience and if I lived nearer I would definitely go again. More
