Food: Kettner's Restaurant Review


Booked at the last minute and popped in with my sister for a late birthday meal. Everything was spot on:

- Decor: chic, not stuffy
- Service unsurpassable, from booking to table service, to leaving.
- Food: just fantastic, every course
- Great value, especially when you get 50% off with a Tastecard (came to £34 for two people with sparking water, two starters, two mains, buckets of bread with really nice butter, and a desert to share).
- Ambiance, very informal but still classy with a pianist tapping away as you enter, and with each room having a distint theme (this place even has a Pudding Room!)

I can't remember the last time I've eaten out and truly loved all 3 courses. Ignore the reviewers who lament the Kettner's of old and visit the restaurant for the new creation that it has become. I loved this place and already want to go back.

 "Originally a series of four Georgian town houses, Kettner’s was first opened as a restaurant by Auguste Kettner, (chef to Napoleon III) in 1867. Popular with deliciously colourful characters of the time including Oscar Wilde, Edward VII, Lillie Langtry, Agatha Christie and Bing Crosby, Kettner’s was renowned for hosting incredible parties"
