    Loves it

    One of central London's top best for fish + chips.

    Classic. Slip in for a lunch.

    Loves it

    If you're in Marylebone, which is not that far from most things, this is a really tasty option.

    Loves it

    Just a really good French experience.

    Loves it

    Has to be the finest food companion to Tate Modern.

    Loves it

    A genuine and genuinely tasty experience.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Panorama Bar (at Berghain) 3 months ago
    Loves it

    As usual, Berghain gets it right.

    A coffee oasis for sure.

    Loves it

    The real deal. And just a nice experience.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Liman Restaurant 4 months ago
    Loves it

    Yummy and unfussy. Just very, very good, with a warm atmosphere.

    Loves it

    Consistently special.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Nando's (Soho) 6 months ago
    Loves it

    Nando's has its place – a reliable and tasty comfort thing to do at least three times a year.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Store St Espresso 6 months ago
    Loves it

    Very, very fine. And the cakes and pastries are of a high standard too. Today's double macchiato and chocolate + pecan cookie at the 54 Tavistock Place branch (Continental Stores) were equally exemplary.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Ellington Hotel Berlin 9 months ago
    Loves it

    Cool and stylish and not at all pricey (and with a certain sexy history). Nicely positioned too.

    DavidOPerson reviewed The Backstreet 10 months ago
    Loves it

    The ultimate den of iniquity for rubber and leather pursuits, whether 40 in attendance or 240. Organic, a bit festery, nice.

    Loves it

    Admittedly extraordinary, but I wasn't the one paying.

    Loves it

    Fish pie. Chips. Wine (or beer). Perfect. Great rooms too. Go on an off night.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Highgate Cemetery 10 months ago
    Loves it

    Don't be put off by the trek to get there, which is not much of a trek at all. You won't regret it. And hopefully you'll have Angie as your guide.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Donmar Warehouse 10 months ago
    Loves it

    A less worthy-heavy and pedantic theatre experience than what you often find at the Almeida and the Royal Court. And you can walk three minutes to Soho for a drink afterwards.

    Loves it

    Effortless and exhaustive without being exhausting. A jewel.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Honest Burgers (Soho) Over a year ago
    Loves it

    No longer rare but still excellent
    Still a great burger. Their expansion has not meant a decline in quality in the slightest. That's rare (like the burgers, but only if you plead with them to cook it that way...they're not meant to offer anything less than medium-rare... down to...ugh...health & safety).

    DavidOPerson reviewed Le Méridien Hamburg Over a year ago
    Loves it

    There's much to like and love here, but for a price. A four and a half that's closer to a five than a four.

  • DavidOPerson
    DavidOPerson reviewed Ottolenghi (Islington) Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Difficult to find fault with this place. And the savouries are just as tasty as the sweets. However, the crowd can be a bit 'institutionalised Islington'.

  • DavidOPerson
    DavidOPerson reviewed The Fryer's Delight Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Unusually nice flavour, especially the chips done in beef fat. And yes, the chips are better well-done.

    Price + quality = outstanding.

    Especially the vanilla sugar bun.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Babaji 1 year ago
    Loves it

    Much better than you think. Try the hot pizza with red lentil soup, followed by chicken etc.

    DavidOPerson reviewed The Palomar 1 year ago
    Loves it

    Not the least bit disappointing. Yummy.

    DavidOPerson reviewed Maison Bertaux Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Go early in your trip because you'll want to return here, either for mid-morning danish, French almond croissants, pain au raisin etc .or for mid-afternoon cakes (esp the Paris Brest, mille feuille, tarte au citron, fruit almond slices etc.).

    Reassuringly old-fashioned, tiny and artisan.

    Loves it

    Food and atmosphere are the bee's knees. One of Berlin's finer schnitzels, with the rest of the menu just as tasty. Ausgezeichnet.
