If nothing else, The Criterion is easily one of the most beautiful restaurants in London. It is a large room with a curved ceiling covered in golden tiles. The white table cloth-covered tables sit amongst white tiled arches and golden draped curtains. The food on offer at The Criterion Restaurant is Modern European - ingredients are sourced seasonally from the British Isles and are served in a classy and modern style. For an exciting evening at The Criterion, you should head there on a Friday or a Saturday evening for the live jazz that is on offer. The Criterion is one of the restaurants that sit directly on Piccadilly, and it is a London institution.

Walk-in bookings: The Criterion is a large restaurant. However, it is formal. This means that if you want to ensure that you get a table there, it is worth booking your table at least a few days in advance. However, if you in the area without a reservation, it is worth popping in to see if they have any free tables (there is also an afternoon tea option - see above).
