Masters Superfish

It’s not a trip to London if there’s no fish and chips involved. Unfortunately, there are many touristy restaurants serving a mediocre version of this ubiquitous British dish. At Masters Superfish, you’ll find crispy and juicy fresh fish served with a side of golden fries that will definitely be your ultimate British meal.

Franco Manca

Franco Manca is a pizza restaurant with several stores scattered around London. They serve a great sourdough pizza baked at a very high temperature in a wood-burning oven. The crust is crispy, the dough soft and the toppings fresh. Their menu includes detailed explanations of the origin of several of their ingredients, whether they’re from a particular farmer or country.

Côte Brasserie

Inspired by Paris’ brasseries, Côte has several establishments around London. Côte is open all day and serves French classics such as croque monsieur for breakfast and steak frites, duck magret and crème brûlée for lunch or dinner. Their ingredients are sourced from the best locations around France and England.

Borough market

The best way to sample a city is to nibble your way through its farmer markets. London’s Borough Market is its oldest and one of the best markets in the world. There are so many food choices hailing from all around the world that it may be torture to decide what to eat while walking among its colourful and busy aisles.

Natural Kitchen

The Natural Kitchen has several locations in London. Locations may include a restaurant, a food-to-go counter, a juice bar, a gin or mojito bar, a bakery and/or a coffee counter. Whichever location you may pick, you can always count on healthy and fresh food in a casual and unpretentious ambiance. The ingredients are always carefully sourced from sustainable and ethical sources.


Located right next to the Tate Modern on London’s Southbank, Swan is open all day for breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, a drink, after the theater and more. A partner of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Swan serves a fresh contemporary British cuisine with an incredible and unobstructed view of Saint Paul’s Cathedral on the other side of the Thames.

The laughing halibut

This is another great fish and chips restaurant in the heart of London’s Westminster. Order your favourite kind of fish (haddock, cod, plaice, etc.) or a combination of several and accompany them by crispy golden fries and the ubiquitous smashed peas.

Bistro Benito

Close to Earl’s Court, Bistro Benito is a small, family-run Italian restaurant serving good food in a great atmosphere. The décor may be a little tired but the warm, friendly welcome more than makes up for it. The menu is traditional trattoria fare as well as some classic British dishes such as fish and chips.

Tate Modern Restaurant

You can’t get a better view while dining in London than the one of the Millenium Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral from the Tate Modern Restaurant! The menu celebrates seasonal British cuisine and the service is irreproachable. The Tate is open for lunch, dinner or just dessert and uses the freshest ingredients. If you are a wine lover, the Tate’s award-winning cellar will please you.

The bunch of grapes

Open all day, every day, The bunch of grapes is a classic pub serving fresh, elevated bar food such as gourmet burgers and hot dogs, nachos, wings, sandwiches and more. They also serve some traditional British dishes such as fish and chips, sausage and mash and beef and ale pies.
