Elegant and refined with an open kitchen and a profusion of aromatic herbs, Herbert Samuel is located in a superb hotel with an exceptional view overlooking the Marina. The atmosphere is sophisticated with slatted screen partitions that preserve your privacy without making you feel shut in. Classical dishes are subtly reinterpreted with an original, sophisticated touch (the seasoning of the salmon tartar, the flavorful roasted vegetables, the crème anglaise served with a subtle Pavlova meringue). The chef excels at bringing out the best of the extremely fresh products and perfectly controlling the balances without multiplying the flavors. The wine list is excellent though expensive. The check is definitely on the expensive side: the business lunch is a wiser choice in terms of price.
