3 Michelin Star Restaurants in London
A three Michelin starred restaurant is the highest-ranking available and it indicates that they are the best in the world. Only a select few eateries have been able to receive this recognition.
In London you can choose from:
Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester
Arguably one of the best chefs in the world, Alain Ducasse is currently the chef with the most Michelin stars alive today. His restaurant Alain Ducasse in Hyde Park proves that hotel dining is still a firm favourite amongst Michelin star critics. Dining here ranges between £240 for the black truffle menu to £140 for the tasting menu. Of course, there is a lunchtime menu that you can sample for £65.
Restaurant Gordon Ramsay
Gordon Ramsay’s flagship restaurant in Chelsea earned the coveted three stars in 2019, twenty years after it first opened. Dining here costs £65 for a three-course lunch and can range to £185 for the seasonal inspiration menu.
Sketch (The Lecture Room & Library)
The Lecture Room & Library, also known as Sketch, is the newest addition to London’s list of three Michelin starred restaurants. It’s also one of the 16 Mayfair restaurants with Michelin stars in 2020. The Library offers a sophisticated French menu, with a seven-course meal priced at £120.
2 Michelin Star Restaurants London
Chef Claude Bosi received two Michelin stars for his innovative foams-jellies-and-smears. Funnily enough, the location of Bibendum is the former headquarters of Michelin in the UK! Enjoy a seven-course tasting costs £110 or a three-course lunch for £40.
La Dame de Pic
La Dame de Pic in Tower Hill added a second Michelin star to its collection as a result of Anne-Sophie Pic’s inventive menu. The restaurant is in the Four Season’s Hotel and overlooks the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. You can experience a two-course meal here for £32 Monday to Friday.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
Heston Blumenthal’s wickedly inventive cooking won over the critics yet again, earning him a second Michelin star rating in 2019. Dining here will cost well over £100 excluding drinks, but you can opt for a three-course lunch for £45 during the week.
Michel Roux’s showstopping dishes are definitely something to behold. You can enjoy a nine-course tasting menu with wine for £265. If this is a little steep, you can try the lunchtime menu for £69 with drinks.
A serene landscaped garden, private rooms and decadent décor make the Greenhouse a Mayfair favourite. But it’s not just the setting that’s sublime. The playfully plated meals will leave a lasting impression when you visit this Michelin starred restaurant. Price range from £125 to £35.
Core by Clare Smyth
After leaving Gordon Ramsay, Clare Smyth went on to launch her very own restaurant. She earned two Michelin stars within a year of opening, which is proof of just how good she is! A tasting menu will cost you £115.
This is a must-see for any foodie. This luxurious Noting Hill restaurant features an extravagant full tasting menu with wine that will cost you £255, while the lunchtime menu is a snip at £75.
Hélène Darroze at The Connaught
Discover innovation at its finest when you visit Darroze’s restaurant. Their most noteworthy offering is the inspiration menu that costs £175. A lunch menu is available too, with two glasses of wine for £55.
This Japanese restaurant is too cool for school. They currently offer an eight-course ‘kaiseki tasting menu’ that costs £155. There are other menus available upon request.
