Sophia’s Diary’s Top London Picks

What are the best, most elegant venues in London? We have selected our favourites and delighted to share them with you.

Date Nights and Girls Nights

Hush Mayfair

By far one, this is my favourite restaurant for Al Fresco Dining in London. There is fantastic choice on the menu. We absolutely love the floral décor outside and the images of celebrities inside.


The husband and I had the most amazing date night at Amazonico London. I highly recommend trying the sushi when you visit. The cocktails are sensational and many are served in fantastic glasses. As so many are amazing, I recommend going through menu and trying something different each time. The atmosphere in the venue was amazing too. Sexy Fish London and Novikov Restaurant are close by and perfect for drinks after.

The Ivy Asia

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants I have been to. The décor is so elegant and there are fantastic views of St Paul’s Cathedral too. The food and service matches the elegance of this high end restaurant too. We highly recommend it.

Chotto Matte

This is an amazing restaurant to visit on a Friday Night in particular. The music is great, there is a fantastic atmosphere and it is lively too. The barman took charge and selected the gin cocktails for me, which was a total hit in my eyes.

Aqua Kyoto

This is a gorgeous venue for drinks on the terrace and high end sushi too. The food was absolutely amazing.

London with the Children

Afternoon Tea at The Chesterfield Mayfair

In addition to the venue being stunning and elegant, The Chesterfield Mayfair, was the best venue I have been to for afternoon tea with Sophia (aged 7) as it is so accommodating for children. They even have a cute pick n mix too. The sandwiches and cakes were bottomless, so it was great value for money. We then walked to Buckingham Palace to make our afternoon out extra special.

Brunch at Duck and Waffle

Sophia and I absolutely loved the brunch experience at Duck and Waffle! The views are absolutely spectacular views and the food. The lift experience alone was phenomenal!

Circolo Popolare

This is an absolutely beautiful venue, with the most striking, unique and elegant décor. We had an amazing dinner at the stunning Circolo Popolare. We highly recommend it for a date night and a girly dinner too. The food was absolutely amazing and the customer service was outstanding too.

Have fun everyone xx
