Maître d’ of Galvin at Windows and star of TV’s First Dates, Fred Sirieix shares his Top 5 restaurants in London… all of them suitable for a romantic rendezvous.

Galvin Green Man

Galvin Green Man. Fred says, ‘this is by far the best pub I have been to for a long time; great cooking, top beers and a relaxed atmosphere.’ (Ok, so this in Essex, but we’ll let him have it).
Galvin Green Man, Main Road, Howe Street, Great Waltham, CM3 1BG

El Pirata
El Pirata Mayfair. Fred says, ‘this is my favourite Spanish place in London; I go there all the time. So much, in fact, that I never ever even look at the menu to order.’
El Pirata, 5–6 Down Street, W1J 7AQ

Jamon Jose
Jose Pizarro Broadgate. Fred says, ‘Jose Pizarro is the king of Spanish chefs and his cooking is just amazing. A must-visit.’ Jose’s restaurants feature in our round-up of London’s Best Tapas.
Jose Pizarro Broadgate, 36 Broadgate Circle, EC2M 1QS

Le Gavroche
Le Gavroche. Fred says, ‘Le Gavroche will always be special for me. The food is good but the way they make me feel when I go there is something else!’
Le Gavroche, 43 Upper Brook Street, W1K 7QR

Galvin Bistrot de Luxe

Galvin Bistrot de Luxe. Fred says, ‘quite simply the best French bistro in the UK. Top cooking from the Galvin brothers. Sixty-six Baker Street is as French as it gets!’ We also featured Galvin Bistrot de Luxe in our round-up of London’s Best Value Tasting Menus.

Galvin Bistrot de Luxe, 66 Baker Street, W1U 7DJ
