Top restaurants in the world

One of the greatest joys in life is to taste good food, and there’s no lack of excellent restaurants in the world to thoroughly satisfy our palates. But the true joy in fine dining isn’t just all about the food, the ambience and service add to the overall dining experience as well.

The restaurant offers some mighty fine ox tail, served braised, and complete with some dark and rich gravy.

The desserts here are a range of traditional English desserts, with almond and cherry tart, treacle sponge and armagnac ice cream.
