Good value. Great food and good ambience with friendly attentive staff
Staff were great, considering we were a large group. Food was also great. Myself and the colleagues I was with will definitely return in the near future!
Excellent food, service & ambience. We were celebrating a special occasion and the staff went out of their way to acknowledge this. Would definitely make a return visit.
As one of London’s most respected restaurants and bars, Caxton Grill serves food that highlights the best seasonal flavours. Sourcing the best produce they can find, the chefs create a number of variations on the theme of each ingredient, layering intense flavours and textures into marvels of modern cuisine. Demonstrating a wide-range of culinary interests, but with a particular yen for Japanese, Caxton Grill – located in St. Ermin’s Hotel down Caxton Street in London’s St James’ – delivers guests a unique dining experience characterised by novel fusions, dishes whose apparent simplicity belies their depth and complexity on the palate.
The emphasis on locally-sourced produce at Caxton Grill can’t be better demonstrated than by the way in which they find their honey – from a clutch of beehives sat on the rooftop of St. Ermin’s Hotel, the very building where this London gourmet’s paradise is housed down Caxton Street. A number of dishes on the extensive menus (plus one or two innovative cocktails) use this honey, radically redefining foraged food. Same goes for many of the herbs and greens that make their way to table – this St James’ restaurant has an interior wall hung with plants, trimmed and sent direct to the kitchen. If you’re to take our advice and try this unique London restaurant, we can’t recommend enough their famed tasting menu – seven courses paired with wine making for a sampler whose restraint and profundity has to be experienced to be believed.
