A real find in such an overpriced area? Real quality food with excellent service. There's a limited menu but it all excellent. Excellent service provided by our Moroccan waiter who was very informative and friendly. The place has a real atmosphere and buzz to it, your not rushed here so take your time and enjoy the great food, service and... More

I like the Little Square it's a small intimate restaurant with great food. Today I had the onion soup and rib eye. The soup was really tasty I also liked the side of Chilli Broccoli which was really good and made the veg really interesting. The service is ok but it's not great and doesn't seem as good as it...

Dined here with friends for my partner's 40th birthday. Less than 10 mins walk from Green Park and just 15 minutes easy walk to theatre in Piccadilly afterwards. All food was perfectly cooked and delicious & the restaurant is cosy and intimate. The service was very good and we ate and drank at surprisingly affordable prices - particularly for this... More

Spur of the moment choice to eat here. A couple just beat us to the last table downstairs so we were seated upstairs. Stairs are quite steep and the room quite small, but we decided to eat anyway. Downstairs looks very cosy. Run by a very friendly young couple, we ordered squid and goats cheese tart followed by fish and... More

Affordable dining in this part of London is almost impossible to find but this is a simple, tiny restaurant which I shall return to again and again. Perfect if you're going to Winter Wonderland. I went on a Sunday night and only had a Caesar Salad and scoop of salted caramel ice cream but the service, ambiance and quality of... More

Had dinner at The Little Square - all food looked delicious, but we solely ordered specials: beef burger & goat cheese tart, and shared them. Perfect with a couple glasses of wine! Service was attentive but not imposing and the atmosphere was cozy with single taper candles on each table.

This place was a hidden gem, we arrived late in Mayfair and found this lovely place. The place is tiny but the food was really lovely. The menu was perfect - enought choice. The service was a little slow as there was only one person serving. The price was reasonable. Would go back again.

Friday night without a reservation is not easy, but we were seated upstairs in a quiet room with only three tables. Soon we were not alone, though. Menu is short, but we enjoyed risotto and burgers, with some of the best fries ever. Service is polite and they came back to check on us on a regular basis, also to... More

First we have to consider that this restaurant is located in Sheppard's market which is a very traditional cozy corner in the heart of London but a very touristic one as well! Having that in mind we visited this restaurant on a week night where it was hardly busy. Small sitting hall with a few tables next to each other.... More

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants in London. The scallops, tuna, seafood linguine and just about everything else on the menu were delicious. It was a sure fire go to to impress friends and family. Sadly not anymore! On a recent visit I noticed the menu had changed, none of the delicious favourites but poor imitations of... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
