Restaurant reviews: Scotts, Mayfair, London

The newly refurbished Scotts in Mount Street, Mayfair, London is an absolute peach of a restaurant, from the moment you walk in the door you know you are in for a wonderful dining experience. From the opulent Oyster Bar situated in the middle of the restaurant to the delightful staff every aspect of your visit is going to be just perfect, a pleasure for all the senses! The restaurant is beautifully decorated and there is a real buzz about it, as the fashionable new eaterie relaunched by Caprice Holdings there are celebrities to be spotted each lunch and dinner service!

However the real joy is obviously the food, days after visiting my partner and i were still talking about what we had eaten, we visit many restaurants in London regularly but its been a long time since we had been served food of such high standard. The menu refreshingly clear compared to many places was hard to put down! With a ridiculous choice of Oysters and very heavily seafood based we knew we were in for a treat, the real giveaway to how good it was going to be came right at the beginning with the butter of all things! So often when you visit a restaurant you have a basket of bread and a few packets of butter dumped infront but oh no! this was something else, this restaurant had even gone so far as to think about the butter! Creamy, salty, God i was going to love this place i knew it straight away!

So to start i had an Onion and Goats Cheese Tart while my partner had Rock Oysters, a Crab and Cod Chitterlings, where does he put it all! More to the point what are cod chitterlings i hear you cry? Well theyre not the tongues as thats a seperate dish entirely! Chitterling traditionally are the intestine of the animal, a dish that smacks more of Fergus Hendersons famous nose to tail eating at St Johns in London however they were bloomin’ delicious, the softest melt on your mouth creamy slight hint of tartar sauce taste sensation, they should be renamed a little taste of heaven! My significant other is the real seafood aficiando having lived in Spain for most of his adult life and reassured me the Oysters and the Crab were spot on.

For the main course i was really adventurous and had the traditional Fish and Chips while the other half had Squid. Well, you cant go wrong with Fish and Chips and my Haddock was battered beautifully, definitely a whole different experience to your typical chip shop experience but it was the Squid that has had us talking ever since. Squid can be a real bind
