Recommended as one of the best places to eat at Covent Garden, the Great Queen Street is known for seasonal and hearty British cuisine where reservations is a must due to its perennial popularity. With a non-pretentious menu that relies heavily on fresh produce, it changes daily so you can expect something new every day.
Coming in to a full dining room with a 6:30PM reservation, it’s popularity amongst the Londoners are evident. Taking a small table in the middle, we ordered the two dishes that was recommended by our friendly waitress. The roasted hake served with new season’s borlotti beans with a hot anchovy dressing was scrumptious and I happily soaked up the sauce with the complimentary bread. My sister’s baked lemon sole served with a cream prawn bisque was just as nice and we both cleared our plates with ease!
We were more than impressed with the food and service from Great Queen Street. The dishes allowed the ingredients to shine and it’s a no-frills sorta menu where edible blooms, unnecessary foam and bite size mains are nowhere to be found. The knowledgable staff can recommend the perfect beverage pairing and despite being swamped with work, they were friendly, attentive and very efficient. The perfect way to end our trip in London!
