The Berkeley Hotel, Wilton Place, Belgravia, London, London, SW1X 7RL
Although describing itself as an informal French bistro, this excellent restaurant run by top-chef Pierre Koffman, on the premises previously occupied by The Boxtree Café - has been criticised for it's rather serious atmosphere.

The food on offer, however, is hard to criticise - but the often hushed tones of people enjoying this adds to the seriousness of the occasion.

Some well-known dishes have been carried over from Mr. Koffman's Tante Claire days - the excellent, but rich, main-course 'Stuffed Pig's Trotter with Sweetbreads & Morels' shouldn't be missed if it's your sort of thing!

Other dishes have their home in South West France, and are top-rate brasserie rather than haute cuisine in style - these might include 'Provençale Fish Soup'; 'Snails with Wild Mushrooms & Parsley'; 'Gascony-Style Black Pudding with Bethmale Cheese, Onion & Beetroot' and 'Foie Gras Terrine with Baguette & Brioche' amongst the starters.

Perhaps 'Roasted Monkfish with Puy Lentils & Bordelaise Sauce'; 'Roasted Anjou Pigeons with Mixed Vegetables';'Herb-Crusted Rump of Lamb' and 'Daube of Beef with Red Wine'.

Sourcing, and indeed saucing, is taken very seriously.

Desserts are too tempting to resist, with perhaps 'Armagnac & Prune Ice Cream'; 'Chestnut & Chocolate Mousse' and 'Pistachio Soufflé with Pistachio Ice Cream' there to tempt you.

Set meals are a particular bargain.
