Restaurant Gordon Ramsay reviews



By Michael S.

The man needs to maintain a high standard and he's done it again here. He overdoes the celebrity bit but you can't fault the cuisine.


By Kelly H.

Every inch the three-Michelin star restaurant, Gordon Ramsay is more than just a dinner out – it’s a gastronomic experience.

The Venue
As you walk up to Gordon Ramsay you can tell you’re in a posh neck of the woods – flash sportscars parked outside gleam in the sunlight. This is a place that oozes money, a place where the recession never happened. It's no wonder this celebrated restaurant - where dinner will cost you more than £100 a head - hasn't even noticed the downturn, let alone the up-and-down recovery. But even if you’re intimidated by the mega-fine things in life, don’t let all this put you off. This is a sleek, classic and very chic dining room without the in-your-face riches that make parts of this area a little but too much (to say the least). Here you’ll find a clean, cream and white colour scheme with round tables cleverly positioned to make the most of the space, with everything geared toward making the customer feel at (very posh) home. The duck-egg blue chairs are comfortable, armchair-like affairs perfect for working your way through the long tasting menu. And, of course, the tablecloths and glassware are pristine. This is a restaurant where the details count – and it’s evident in the perfect placement of every spoon, every glass, every place mat.

The Atmosphere
Although Michelin star restaurants sometimes come in for a bit of stick over aggressive table turning, this is not the case at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. If you order the Prestige Menu (tasting menu) then you’re in it for the long haul: you’re looking at a few hours of eating time - and that's without taking coffees and digestifs into account. The attention you receive from the waiting staff is a little intense at times but their knowledge of every aspect of the menu is astounding and more than makes up for the occasional over-exuberance when asking you if your dinner is okay - it almost certainly is.

The Food
Although it bears the moniker of super-chef Gordon Ramsay, the head of the kitchen is actually Clare Smyth. But don’t be downhearted - she’s an MBE and widely considered to be one of the best chefs in the world (as her three Michelin stars attest).

The menu here is classic French with a modern, fresh twist or two. Every dish is presented with a flourish and a back-story about the ingredients, and everything from the pre-starters to the main courses are presented as works of art. If you’re going to visit this restaurant then you’re missing out a little if you don’t order that Prestige menu. It’s far from cheap (at £135 a head - not including wine or the service charge) but it’s an incredible dining experience – and one you won’t forget in a hurry. The seven courses are closer to 12 in reality, once you've been served all the little added extras they like to throw in (canapés, petit fours etc.). All of the dishes are sublime but some stand out as truly exceptional.

For example, the ravioli of lobster, langoustine and salmon poached in a light bisque with Oscietra caviar and sorrel velouté is a taste sensation. It’s simply presented as one oversized (and not insignificant) piece of ravioli served on a vibrant green velouté with a neat little pile of caviar on top. It’s certainly an example of rich food done very well. The ravioli, though light and fresh, is filled with some of the sweetest, meatiest shellfish you could imagine, and the salty tang of the caviar on top makes it almost sickly – almost. However, the play of texture and flavour showcases why the kitchen has three Michelin stars, with everything perfectly balanced.

This delicate flourish of flavour is also shown in the Isle of Gigha halibut with Atlantic king crab, finger lime and ras el hanout infused broth. Served as a large piece of clean, white fish with pretty pieces of crab, it’s stunning in its simplicity. The clever addition of the north-African spices peps up the broth just enough to give the dish an interesting depth without overpowering the clean flavour of the fish.

In terms of beautiful dishes, none can beat the lemonade parfait with honey, bergamot and sheep’s milk yogurt sorbet. A bright white dish, it matches the décor nicely and is punctuated by bits of gold leaf. And, yes, it tastes incredible, too. The sorbet is light with a rich creamy aftertaste that doesn’t fight against the tangy citrus zing of the lemonade parfait. As the final dessert in your Prestige journey, it’s a fantastic final curtain.

The Drink
The wine menu at Gordon Ramsay is suitably huge. Covering traditional old world favourites and experimental new world bottles from unusual wine producing countries such as the Lebanon, it’s an impressive selection. The prices are also good – though almost none of the wines are available by the glass, which is a real shame. Starting at just £46 a bottle, if you’re really looking to splash out you can find some choices at over £2000. Yes, you read that right.

The Last Word
Gordon Ramsay is visited by rich people with money to burn and those less well off celebrating what must be very special occasions. But whatever your financial standing, you’ll be treated like a king (or queen!) and will leave feeling like you have just indulged in one of the most incredible culinary experiences of your life.


By Irina I.

It was my first 3 Michelin stars experience and I loved every bit of it. The service was absolutely amazing and at the same time made us feel at ease. The food was delicious. The new tastes were revealing with every chew. We paid £150 which included the menu, glass of wine and mint tea. It is expensive but I didn't feel ripped off, felt like it was totally worth it and I'd love to go again, this time for a special occasion.

We went for the “menu degustation”. Some of the dishes were very good (eg. Beef Wellington, Panna Cotta).

Globally, however, we were completely dumbfounded that the Michelin awards 3 stars to this restaurant.

At the time of booking, the restaurant asked for payment by credit card of around £500 as an “advanced booking fee” since we were 5 people.

I suspect this is to build up the feeling of booking with a “low-cost airline” that one would expect from Michelin starred establishments.

We were literally rubbing elbows with the people on the table next door. I can understand that Mr. Ramsey likes to maximise the profits on his investment, but is that really what we should expect from a 3 star restaurant?

The service was incredibly slow. The staff were clearly too concerned about those who had come for the lunch menu and had forgotten about others like us who had foolishly opted for the “menu degustation”.

This meant that the poor waiters felt they had to fill up our glasses literally after each sip - which as a result was incredibly annoying.

The sommelier was completely disinterested and either didn’t feel like informing us about the wines, or perhaps didn’t know. In any case he was useless.

The “maitre d’hôtel” was not at all genuine, he should take smiling lessons. Furthermore, he told us that the chef could prepare for us a Beef Wellington with truffles as an alternative to the main dish in the menu.

Either they forgot the truffles, or the chap was telling tales. That said, the Beef Wellington was very good even without the truffles.

As they had forgotten about us, we were the last to finish our meal at around 4-5pm. It is often the case that when we treat ourselves to 3 star restaurants, meals wind up around 4-5pm so this is usually not a problem.

Here, however, it was made very clear that they wanted us to leave – they brought us the bill be

First let's cut to the chase - this place is expensive. If you're going to get the most out of it then you want to go for the tasting menu at around £110/head, which when you add decent wine to go with the courses is going to end up at somewhere north of £200 each.

That's a lot of money, so the place had better deliver.And it really does.We went with a group of 7 for the tasting menu, and arrived early (around 6.30pm) to make sure we had time to enjoy all 7 courses. This turned out to be lucky as with the array of amuse bouches, post-desert treats, and a chees course, it ballooned to something like 12 or 13 different dishes and we didn't leave until gone 11!

Possibly the most surprising thing is that although we had booked the set tasting menu, one of the group decided to be vegetarian on the night (no, I have no idea why!) and asked if he could change *all* the meat courses.

Without hesitation the Maitre d' Jean-Claude Breton planned a new menu specifically for him, asking him about what he liked, and detailing all the seasonal ingredients they had to make it with. His knowledge of the food was incredible, as was the Somellier's of the wine (I asked for a list of what we had drunk because some were so good!).

Anyway, onto the food. As I'm sure you'll be unsurprised to hear from Gordon Ramsay's flagship restaurant, every single course was done to perfection and tasted amazing. Without doubt the best food I've ever eaten. Enough said.Topped off with incredible service (at one point we counted 9 waiters around our table) which was attentive but never overbearing, the experience was unlike any other restaurant I've been to. And the £200/head bill seemed like good value for an experience I still remember vividly!
