Famous for being the most expensive property on the Monopoly board, Mayfair is host to a remarkable range of classy restaurants serving some of the best food in all of London. Whatever your tastes or dietary preferences, there’s a restaurant in Mayfair that’s right for you.
In this article, we’ll explore six of our favourite eateries in this West End location. Expect to discover delicious food, tasty drinks, and atmospheres that you will love. Let’s tuck in and learn about the hottest dining spots in Mayfair.
Metropolitan Casino opened its doors to Mayfair in February 2023, and has been trying to establish itself on the already bustling Mayfair casino scene. Traditional in-person casinos are facing stiff competition from online casinos, who can tempt players with special offers and welcome bonuses as well as a huge variety of games. With this in mind, normal casinos need to offer another point of difference on top of the usual casino games and tables.
This is where the Metropolitan Casino excels with their high-class restaurant. Serving delicious dishes from 2pm until 6am, visitors can expect to taste culinary delights served by Chef Lalit who has years of experience in the industry. On this diverse international menu, you will find popular dishes such as the mezze platter, truffle mac and cheese, and salmon za’atar. With a huge range of dishes, there is something for every taste, and the restaurant is reason enough to visit the casino.
When news broke in 2019 that IT London would finally be opening its doors, it drew rapturous applause from Mayfair locals – and the restaurant has been wowing customers ever since. This enticing restaurant has its roots in Ibiza and fulfils the founding vision of merging great music with tasty food.
On this menu, you can expect to find classic seafood dishes such as scampi, prawns, and oysters. They also serve a range of delicious desserts, including tiramisu, gelato, and nougat. And if you are the mood, make sure you check out their cocktail menu. Our personal favourite is the Amalfi Sour: chamomile-infused gin, orange liqueur, lemon juice and lemon foam. It is sure to get your taste buds dancing!
Earning a Michelin star after just four months, Murano was created with high-quality ingredients and a great ambience in mind. Named after the beautiful island in Venice, this establishment is open to all and offers a diverse menu which covers meat lovers, vegetarians, and vegans in equal measure.
The seasonal menu pays tribute to chef Angela Hartnett’s upbringing alongside her Italian mother and grandmother. Our favourite dishes include the saddleback pork with rhubarb and the blood orange sorbet. The focus in the restaurant is on fun rather than fine, so guests can expect a lively atmosphere alongside their Michelin starred dining experience. This is definitely a unique concept in the Mayfair district and one that should be enjoyed.
When Jeru launched in 2021, there was an expectation that it would be a one-stop shop for all things Middle Eastern. It is safe to say that it did not disappoint. Each dish proudly presents the unique flavours of the Middle East and invites Mayfair locals and the wider London community to try dishes they’ve perhaps never tasted before.
Jeru’s a la carte menu offers something for all. On the starter’s menu, we suggest trying the warm charcoal olives with feta or the black chickpea hummus. On the mains list, we recommend the charcoal brick-pressed chicken or herb-crusted lamb rack, served with a flavourful mint dressing. We find that is nearly impossible to pick a favourite dessert from their menu, but their famous lemon tart with sour cherry is probably the best we have tried.
Founded by Nieves Barragan and José Etura, Sabor is located on Heddon Street in Mayfair. The name itself means ‘flavour’ and it certainly is fitting for this restaurant. The Michelin-star eatery cooks their food using traditional Spanish methods. Their speciality is seafood, and we would highly recommend the prawn croquetas, monkfish tempura and seafood rice.
If you are not a huge seafood fan, Sabor also serves traditional suckling pig, lamb ribs and fried pig’s ears. On the wine menu, you’ll discover carefully selected red and white wines, as well as cava and sherry options. If you are in the mood for a cocktail, then we would suggest that you try the Fino Negroni. This unique drink is made up of Fino sherry, Victory bitters and vermouth and will make your next visit to Mayfair worthwhile!
