LONDON RESTAURANTS – Solo Dining

Solo Dining Reviews of London Restaurants

I am passionate about food and enjoy dining out so why wait until a friend can join me if I can go by myself.  They might not want to eat at the same place I do anyway.  Dining by yourself allows you to be selfish and be in total control of where you go.  If you fancy something cheap and casual, do it.  If you fancy dining at one of the high end London restaurants with a cuisine nobody fancies trying, do it alone.  

Dining alone can, however, be quite daunting when you haven’t done it before.  My first experience of it was a bit of a disaster but, I have learnt a few tips along the way!  Read my solo dining tips for more information.  The link is at the bottom of this page.

These are the London restaurants I have been to by myself that I can recommend to other solo diners.  They include cuisines from all over the world as well as some ‘unusual’ dining experiences.  Click on the restaurant of your choice to read my full solo dining review.
