Fine Dining in London – Best 10 restaurants

The UK is famous for many things, but food is not high up on the list. For example, Brighton beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the United Kingdom, a place you must tick off your to-see list, but when it comes to food where can you go? London, of course. You can find gourmet food pretty much everywhere you go, even Las Vegas is famous for it, but in a city like London, you expect to find something that comes close to the best dining experience in the world. Fine dining in London has become a sort of sport, and we’re going to let you in on the circuit with 10 great London restaurants.
