Flexibility abounds at this King's Road spot - there's a restaurant, cocktail bar, nightclub and even some rooms, should you fancy staying the night. 

The restaurant focuses on classic Italian cuisine. Expect, then, dishes such as bruschetta con pomodorini, insalata tricolore, wild boar ragout with taglioni and an authentic Neapolitan lasagne, with meatballs, mozzarella and a basil tomato sauce. Desserts include tiramisu, an almond praline semifreddo a tortini al cioccolato con gelato alla vaniglia - a chocolate pot with vanilla ice cream. 

The bar shares the restaurant's wine list, with Italian and French wines dominating a surprisingly accessible list - bottles start at £16, and seven are available by the glass. Cocktails prove popular, too. The selection ranges from martinis, bloody marys and manhattans to twisted mojitos and an apple crumble - here made with Sailor Jerry, lemon juice, apple juice and cinnamon.

The club is good but read one thing: this club has free entry. In chelsea. Free entry. You don't need to be on the guestlist, you don't need to know anyone you can get in for free. Just arrive early to avoid disappointment but enjoy the lack of cover charge. 

For the club itself the basement can get hot and has a dancefloor that gets packed up, the upstairs bar provides space to chat and they keep restaurant floor open if you want to breathe.  


If you're looking for a place to go for a group of friends in London for food, drinks and a dance without having to spend tonnes of money/ have to traipse around trying to find a club without a ridiculous entrance fee/ queue, then Mare Moto is your place. The food is pretty bog standard Italian but the drinks menu is a bit more exciting with a treasure chest cocktail that rivals Mahiki's.

I got recommended to come here by some friends and although my family and I are quite picky when it comes to food we were excited to see what all the fuss was about. So when we booked a table at Mare Moto for my Gradutation and Birthday we had high expectations.

Firstly, I've never felt so welcome. The staff had all the time in the world for us and had endless recommendations! I had the 'Gamberi all'aglio' - Large Tiger Prawns with angel hair pasta which was right up my street! I'm not keen on spicy food so they made sure it wasn't spicy for me and it was still delicious! My parents who are very particular with how their steak is cooked were even impressed. They said it was the best steak they have tasted... and that's saying something! 

The cocktail waiters were just as helpful when they asked what I wanted to drink. I asked for something sweet and smooth and they made me their 'Made in Chelsea' cocktail, a White Chocolate Mozart based cocktail. It was as if they were reading my mind...

The staff here knew my taste better than I did! Our expectations were exceeded as they brought out a lovely dessert with sparklers for me as a lovely touch to the end of my graduation/birthday celebrations. We even got to meet the famous owner Luigi, who came to see how we were and how we found the food. Turns out he cooked us the meals we ate!

It's always nice to see that the owner is as hands on as everyone else and just as friendly. I think that's what makes Mare Moto stand out from the rest on King's Road and in Chelsea! You're not just a customer that eats and leaves, you feel like you're a part of their evening too.
