The Wolseley/Modern European ‘café-restaurant


, , , , , , , ,

The Wolseley is located across the street from the Ritz Hotel, in a beautiful building. It has very vibrant and buzzy atmosphere, full with tourists and local business men. The best way to describe the Wolseley it is that it combines London heritage and Viennese grandeur.


I went there over the weekend for breakfast, without any reservation and was lucky to get a table after 10 minutes. I have tried the Potato Rosti with Avocado, tomato and poached egg. Well… the dish looked wonderful when i saw it served at the other tables but when i had it, it was cold, the egg was cooked- well done and the potato rosti was burned…. I can see that this dish is very popular and probably had it standing in a row, but i would have expected from it to be much more than it was! Don’t skip the coffee, which is excellent. It is rare to find an espresso so rich and fragrant that it tastes delicious without sugar.

The service at The Wolseley could have been a lot more better. I felt that the waiter had no patient, no smile on and if it’s one thing that makes a place different than the other it is without a doubt the SERVICE and here it was lacking and thats a shame.

It Might have been only my bad experience and most times the service is wonderful and the dishes are fabulous but that was my experience from my point of view.

The Providores and Tapa Room/ Marylebone High Street


, , , , , , , , , ,

You have to do something pretty special as a restaurant to be as popular today as you were when you opened 14 years ago. The Providores and Tapa Room in Marylebone High Street do just that!

The Providers are Famous for their breakfasts but the standing out one is the Turkish eggs, two poached eggs that are sitting on whipped yoghurt and drizzled liberally in chilli oil and it’s just a divine combination.  The menu has a lot of unique dishes that you wouldn’t make at home, and that’s what i am looking for when i go out for breakfast. Yes it is the same eggs every where but here at The Providers is unlike a lot of other boring breakfast spots in London so it’s worth going out for. Another favourite dish for me is the Half & Half granola fruit salad with Greek yogurt, toasted coconut and honey. The combination again is just perfect and i wish to eat it every morning!! They have a good selection of fresh juice and the Coffee is great. CAN I ASK FOR MORE? No!

The place is pretty small, it has two floors. The Tapa Room – on ground floor all-day restaurant, café and wine bar. And The Providores – first floor contemporary dining room. although it is small and packed, it’s still comfortable and has a relaxed atmosphere.

The Providores is an absolute gem. The food is simply stunning and never fails to please. For me it is the ultimate Breakfast spot!

La Bodega Negra/Mexican Restaurant & Bar


, , , , ,


When you first arrive to La Bodega Negra, you may think you’re in the wrong place. From the outside it looks like an adult store with a peep show. Don’t worry, it’s not…it’s actually a fun and hip restaurant with great food.

We ordered a range of different food for everyone to pick up (mainly tacos) and the food was undeniably was surprisingly light and great tasting.If you like spicy food, this is a great place to go! Try the chilly chocolate dessert and have some margaritas and tequilas while you are there as they have a large and great selection!

‘La Bodega Negra’ is just what we were missing, dark and atmospheric downstairs and fairly cozy. The place is very lively for a Monday evening. The music is good however if you wanting intimate and quiet then this wouldn’t be the place.

A Must try for a big party of people.

The Chiltern Firehouse/ Modern international cuisine

The New Hotspot- Be ware!

photo-22 copy

Chiltern Firehouse is a Modern international cuisine with an American accent. Style AND substance. It is a restaurant and hotel located at 1 Chiltern Street, Marylebone, London.
The interior design is luxurious yet cool and casual all in one. Chiltern Firehouse has a great vibe and atmosphere that i definitely recommend to go out for drinks.

The Chiltern Firehouse has become London’s hottest celebrity hangout! From the Beckham’s to the Delvevingne sisters you name it as the list is really endless.

The kitchen is headed up by chef Nuno Mendes, formerly of Viajante, who has created a relaxed but vibrant menu with many American flourishes. Very Typical dishes include chargrilled iberico pork, blackened salmon with sea kale and trout roe and crab-stuffed doughnuts.

For me the food was very average.I don’t think that this is the place to go and have a culinary experience but having said that…I left the place in such a good mood that i forgot all the rest and came back again!!

The waiting list is long so book way in advance!

The Palomar/ Israeli Cuisine


, , , , , , ,

The Palomar/ Israeli Cuisine

The Palomar Restaurant transported me straight back to Tel Aviv! My City! My home!

The chefs at The Palomar are from Jerusalem (Chef Asaf Granit and chef Yossi Elad) from a place called Machneyuda.
Machneyuda is the hippest, most delicious and amazing restaurant in Jerusalem.
It is located at Mahane Yehuda food market.

Now back to London! The Palomar at Soho is truly different and deserves to be a huge success. Dishes are bold and creative, based on top quality ingredients. The Palomar serves the food of modern day Jerusalem. A menu influenced by the rich cultures of Southern Spain, North Africa and the Levant.
There’s a few MUST try dishes, one of them was the polenta,It was by far the best polenta I’ve ever had in my life! a mixture of fluffy heaven paired with truffles, mushroom, asparagus and parmesan. Served in a Mason Jar. A Wooooooooow dish that i will happily go back for! The Shakshukit and The Daily 6 was excellent and the Malabi dessert was divine!!

The Staff are young, attentive and, above all, genuinely enthusiastic.
Pricing is very reasonable, particularly for this part of central London.

The space is a bit small and buzzy, but amazing food and great service pays it all. Highly recommended.

As a big fan of Roka Restaurant, Roka’s new Branch in Mayfair didn’t fail my expectation.
The high-gloss contemporary Japanese food continues to wow the crowds!
With new dishes, High-end list of sakés and sexy cocktails nothing can go wrong here!

The interior design of the new resturant will catch your eye. it’s built around a central dining counter, made out of a huge slab of handsomely gnarled wood, behind which various fish, meat and poultry are expertly cooked over an open flame.

The location is on North Audley Street (5 minute walk from Selfridges) and the atmosphere is relaxed yet elegant dining destination.

Roka Mayfair delivers a new dynamic altogether with unique design elements in both the restaurant and bar.

Coya Restaurant/ Peruvian Cuisine

Coya Restaurant/ Peruvian Cuisine

Just been at Coya Lounge bar last night and i was so happy to come back home and write about my new Peruvian restaurant and Bar.

Coya Bar is so refreshing, delicious and very different flavours then the other restaurants iv’e been to lately. For me as you know it is lovely to be able to taste small portions of perfectly prepared food and Excellent service to go with it.

Coya Bar brings the spirit of Latin America to the heart of London.
It’s loud, busy and full-on! And if you are looking for something less dark and sleeky try the separate restaurant which is quieter.

The dishes come small, not to sophisticated but full in flavour and very well made !!
I can recommend the: Josper octopus, Salmon fillet, Tuna tartare, Chilean sea bass, Spicy beef fillet and of course to end it with the Chocolate Fundido.

Peruvian cuisine is definitely my new favorite kind of cuisine.

Scalini/ Italian Restaurant

Mamma Mia! What a catch i have for you guys!

Scalini in Walton Street Knightsbridge is a fabulous restaurant frequented by mostly Knightsbridge regulars, movie stars and other celebs. ( just look at all photographs tacked on the wall and you will see what i mean)

This is one of oldest traditional fine dining Italian Restaurant left in London.
The atmosphere is warm and the stylish vibe adds to the dining experience.
Scalini is serving excellent Italian food as simply as possible, in the most traditional, unpretentious and honest way!

I have been there several times and have to say, they never fail my exceptions for best italian food. My favourite is the Lobster Linguini and talking about it makes me want to reserve a table again!!

Mamma Miaa!!!! Don’t forget the tiramisu Dessert in the end!

Yashin Ocean House/ Japanese

Yashin Ocean House/ Japanese

Nothing is ordinary here at the new ‘Yashin Ocean House’ Restaurant at South Kensington- And that’s why i love it!

It is not for beginners as it is not a Sushi Restaurant (Like in the Other Yashin) it is a Japanese restaurant all made from fresh fish, and all of the fish parts 🙂

The place is big and beautifully designed, although because of the big space and high ceiling it wasn’t worm enough and they had to bring 2 heaters around us!

The Menu was too complicated to understand with the board menu giving and a big fish drawn on it! but luckily we had a good waiter to explain and advice.

Now, considering all that, it was one of the few restaurants that we ordered around 6 dishes (3 starters and 2 mains as recommended) and enjoyed ALL 6 of them!! And loved the desserts too!!!! (big issue for me)
Their tuna carpaccio was divine, and the cooked yellow tail in mushroom soup was amazingly tender and delicious and to end this wonderful meal they had a chestnut dessert with chestnut ice cream which anything with chestnut, I love.


I will be back as i spotted other challenging dishes for me to explore, and how i like to explore :))))

Not for beginners!!

Their Nibs London/Kids Clothing

Their Nibs has such a cool and different clothing designs for boys and girls that it makes me wish iv’e lived in the 60s! but lucky me, I don’t have to! because i found Their Nibs shop in London.

Their Nibs clothing for kids has such a British style and tailoring clothing inspierd from the English heritage and roots which means, vintage designs and fabrics (alternative to modern’s children’s fashion) with the influences taken from the 1950s, 60s and 70s of Great Britain that you can see at the retro and floral patterns that are very dominant with their cloths. The range of clothing starts from the age of babies up to 10 years old.

I would so recommend the cool and retro design of their Pyjamas range! The Russian Girl Pyjamas or the Geisha one for girls really caught my eye and for boys they have a cool Skateboard or Cowboy pyjamas which I’m sure the kids would adore and all in very reasonable prices.

You can find at their shop everything from Party clothing, Everyday clothing, Nightwear and even a few things for your Nursery.
