From Michelin stars and Indian fine dining to brunch classics, chic café culture and top quality gastropubs, there is something for every taste and budget when it comes to dining in Belgravia’s restaurants. Best of all, these top 10 faves are all a stone’s throw (but feel like a world away) from the bustle of Knightsbridge.

Brooklands by Claude Bosi

Entrance to Brooklands restaurant with motor car images on the walls

The doors had barely opened when Claude Bosi’s Brooklands was honoured with two Michelin stars in early 2024. The panoramic views from The Peninsula hotel’s stunning rooftop restaurant are nothing short of spectacular, as is Anglophile Bosi’s innate French take on modern, British ingredients. 

Petrolheads will enjoy the motoring and aviation theme throughout the flawlessly finished interiors.

From £145 for a three-course set lunch menu

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: 12-minute walk 

Address: Brooklands by Claude Bosi, The Peninsula, 1 Grosvenor Place, London SW1X 7HJ. 

Pétrus by Gordon Ramsay

Not a new kid on the block, but a stalwart favourite when it comes to Michelin-starred cuisine, superstar chef Gordon Ramsay’s Pétrus on leafy Kinnerton Street gives a modern French spin on locally sourced produce like Isle of Skye scallops and Cornish turbot. 

The chef’s table (a cosy booth in the kitchen) is undoubtedly the best seat in the house.

From £75 for a four-course set lunch menu

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: Nine-minute walk. 

Address: Pétrus by Gordon Ramsay, 1 Kinnerton Street, London SW1X 8EA. 

Mina's

Mina's interior

A relatively new addition to Motcomb Street, opening in summer of ’22, Mina’s really hits the spot when it comes to satisfying those hearty Italian and Mediterranean cravings. Plus the small plates (think proper chunky zucchini fries) and moreish sourdough pizzas are perfect for sharing with friends. Sit in the window or dine al fresco to soak up the street’s friendly neighbourhood atmosphere.

Small plates from £8.50; and mains from £14.50

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: 8-minute walk

Address: Mina's, 20 Motcomb Street, London, SW1X 8LB

Café Kitsuné

The queue every afternoon to secure Café Kitsuné's signature truffle egg sando, iconic fox cookie and a speciality Matcha latte speaks for itself. 

This chic outpost of the super trendy Japanese-French fusion concept arrived in Belgravia when the impressive Pantechnicon building reopened, and has been a firm favourite attracting customers from near and far ever since.

From £2.50 for patisserie snacks; and sandwiches from £10

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: 8-minute walk.  

Address: Café Kitsuné, Halkin Arcade, 19 Motcomb St, London SW1X 8LB

The Alfred Tennyson

This much-loved public house from the popular Cubitt House pub group recently welcomed new head chef Stevie Phillip to the kitchen. The Alfred Tennyson's menu remains reassuringly classic, with dishes to delight from seasonal oysters and Angus beef tartare, to a delicious roasted garlic Cotswolds chicken and tasty cheeseburger that packs a punch with a dabble of horseradish mayo.

Starters from £11; and mains from £19.75

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: 8-minute walk. 

Address: The Alfred Tennyson, 10 Motcomb Street, London SW1X 8LA. 

Muse by Tom Aikens

The youngest chef to gain two Michelin stars at age just 26, talented Tom’s intimate Muse restaurant can be found inconspicuously on pretty, cobbled mews street Groom Place. With only 23 covers, this converted townhouse is the perfect backdrop for Tom’s experiential dining journey, inspired by memories from his Norfolk childhood and other personal moments from his life.

From £50 for a three-course set lunch menu

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: 14-minute walk. 

Address: Muse by Tom Aikens, 38 Groom Place, London SW1X 7BA

The Lanesborough Grill

Nothing says elegant, trad fine dining quite like the five-star Lanesborough hotel’s Grill restaurant

Afternoon tea (with cakes and pastries so beautiful they are almost too good to eat) is also taken here, with the added accompaniment of a pianist on weekends. 

From £40 for a two-course set lunch menu

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: 10-minute walk

Address: The Lanesborough Grill, Hyde Park Corner, London SW1X 7TA

The Wilton Arms

From pints to Pinot, punters are spoiled for choice with the Wilton’s well-stocked wine cellar, plus ever-changing curation of real ales and beers. 

Quenching your thirst couldn’t be easier or more pleasurable than on quaint Kinnerton Street, which is also home to traditional tavern The Nag’s Head.

Small plates from £7; and mains from £19

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: Six-minute walk 

Address: The Wilton Arms, 71 Kinnerton Street, London SW1X 8ED. 

Amaya Grill

Interior

A hidden gem to be discovered - if you haven’t already - in the Halkin Arcade behind Motcomb Street, Amaya has held a Michelin star since 2006, and for good reason. Not your average curry house, this modern Indian restaurant’s open kitchen focuses on producing perfectly marinated meat and fish dishes on a charcoal grill and Tandoor oven. If it’s mixology you’re after, check out Amaya’s cocktail list for a botanical aperitif to whet the appetite.

Small plates from £11; large plates from £16

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: 8-minute walk

Address: Amaya, Halkin Arcade, Motcomb Street, London, SW1X 8JT

Salloos

Salloos is a Belgravia institution, serving authentic Pakistani-Indian fusion to loyal locals since 1976, in a contemporary-style dining space. Very much still family-run, become a regular here and enjoy signature dishes like the chargrilled Tandoori lamb chops, as well as warm welcomes from the owners themselves.

Starters from £9; mains from £24

Distance from Knightsbridge tube station: 8-minute walk

Address: Salloos, 62-64 Kinnerton Street, London SW1X 8ER.
