Up the ante on your Instagram feed with a dinner at one of London’s most Instagrammable restaurants
Words Helen Brown
Apparently London is one of the most Instagrammed capital cities in the world, but it’s not just Hyde Park and the London Eye stealing the limelight. It certainly has its fair share of restaurants worthy of a ‘gram or two. From mono-tonal galleries to indoor foliage, the interiors of these Instagrammable restaurants are enough to distract you from your dinner. Here is our pick of the most photogenic eateries the city has to offer.
The gallery room at Sketch will definitely add impact to your Insta feed. It’s housed within a quirky 18th-century townhouse tea room that transforms into a cocktail lounge every evening. The menu is vast and globally inspired. It takes bold flavour forays into Japanese, Italian, Spanish and British cuisines.
Bob Bob Ricard
Bob Bob Ricard serves English and Russian classics zhushed up with luxury ingredients. Take a pew at one of the Orient Express railcar-inspired booths and ‘press for champagne’ – the button alone is snapshot-worthy.
Dalloway Terrace in Bloomsbury is known for its stunning floral displays, from pastel blooms in spring to fiery leaves in autumn. Serving everything from brunch to dinner plus everything in between including afternoon tea, sit outside for top Instagram points.
This opulent eatery in King’s Cross was the first purpose-built gymnasium in England and was influential in the development of athletics in Britain. Now it serves its purpose as one of London’s most Instagrammable restaurants, offering a German-inspired menu styled after the grand cafés and brasseries of Europe.
The Winter Garden
Situated at the heart of the soaring eight-storey glass roof atrium of The Landmark London Hotel, The Winter Garden restaurant offers a memorable dining experience. It has a brilliant all-day brasserie menu, however, the afternoon tea is award winning and is the perfect weekend treat.
The Ivy Chelsea Garden
Perfect for a girl’s lunch, The Ivy Chelsea Garden affords a palette of sage green with accents of orange, botanical prints and brass light fittings. The exterior blue awnings and painted park benches are just as pretty.
Aubaine at Selfridges is the perfect spot for a post-shopping spree lunch. Dine under a canopy of calming wisteria and gaze lustfully at the all-white interior while sampling its modern French cuisine.
