Operating under the same umbrella as London's Ivy and J.Sheekey, Le Caprice follows suit in modern style and comfort. Brightly lit with a basic but appealing colour-scheme of black leather furniture and flooring, surrounded and draped with gleaming white walls and tablecloths. Stretching the length of the restaurant is the bar where you can sit and enjoy a meal if there are no seats at the tables which, more often than not, is likely, so think about booking in advance.
Onto the menu and it's more luxury and extravagance with the likes of scallops, exotic salads, steak tartare and spiced tiger prawns as examples of starters. On the main course menu you've got pan-fried slip soles, sea bream, and calf's liver as highlights. The main meals come in with an average price tag of £22, and the starters average about half that. Typically, desserts here are about a tenner but, when there's vanilla parfait with wild strawberries, chocolate torte with raspberries, cheese boards, ice-creams, jellies and sorbets on offer, you can hardly be surprised.
Le Caprice is a classic London joint for the rich and famous and those looking for a seriously impressive dining experience. Turn up with your back pocket stuffed with notes and be prepared to be pampered with all the luxuries this place has to offer - it shan't be forgotten in a hurry.
