Top Restaurants in South Kensington
We asked the Caprice girls for their favourite South Kensington restaurants. This is what they said:
68 Royal Hospital Road – 020 7352 4441 | www.gordonramsayrestaurants.com
Three star Michelin French / Scottish restaurant that opened in 1998 and was Ramsey’s first and is considered his flagship eatery. Elegant, classy and expensive. Top, top service. This place is small and well regarded so you must book well in advance. Months in advance in some cases. If you can get in, your Caprice girl will be swooning and totally impressed. Not many get in. Not many make the effort. Go on. Show her what you can do.
81 Fulham Road, SW3 (the Michelin Building) – 020 7581 5817 | bibendum.co.uk
If you like a slice of art deco with your sea food, this Award winning Terence Conran restaurant is the place to take your exciting Caprice girl. Caprice girls LOVE Bibendum, and they’ll love you even more for taking them. Lobsters so fresh they will try to crawl off your plate and get a taxi back to the ocean. Downstairs is the Oyster Bar to start things off in a relaxed atmosphere that will allow to you get to know (and show off) your beautiful girlfriend, and then you’ll be whisked upstairs to the main part of the restaurant. Prepare your credit card beforehand. It won’t like it….
5 Raphael Street, SW7 – 020 7584 1010 | zumarestaurant.com
Sought after and slightly tough to get in (book in advance) Japanese restaurant nestled away in Knightsbridge. Really, really nice inside. Arty farty and well dapper, but no need to overdress - your favourite Paul Smith shirt will be perfect for this one. Over 40 varieties of sake and an extensive wine list if that is your thing. A bit of celebrity hang out, but have no fear – you’ll be the one everybody is looking at when they see what an AMAZING girl you have dripping off your arm. Thank heavens for Agency Caprice!
