Scott's

For over 150 years, fabulous fish and shellfish in a grand, club-like, and appropriately pricey Mayfair setting; and good for celeb-spotting.

Now inevitably linked with Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson, Scott’s had for the previous 162 years been best known for its fish. And with good reason: the seafood here is first class. The centrepiece of the restaurant is a grand oyster bar where Mayfair types sip flutes of Gaston Chiquet and feast on fines de claires by the dozen.

In the club-like seating area, diners get stuck in to Cornish sardines laced with parsley, sautéed monkfish cheeks with bordelaise sauce, and scampi provençale. We rhapsodised over the bass ceviche, a cheeky number bolstered by chunks of avocado, pepped up with a decent dose of jalapeño. We were also impressed with a tender halibut fillet and a meaty seared sea bass, swirled with lemon and herb butter and served with a heart-stopping mash.

The only slight disappointment was a side salad made with lacklustre tomatoes, but any doubts were assuaged by the magnificent desserts (don’t miss the bakewell pudding). Prices are steep bordering on vertical, but for an occasional treat and a touch of sleb-spotting, Scott’s is worth the expense.

If you're wondering if the location and price tag match up then you won't be surprised when I say yes, yes they do. In the heart of Mayfair you'll find this absolutely stunning classic seafood restaurant. The staff were extremely attentive even from the very start when we asked if we could possibly change our table and were very helpful when recommending the very best dishes. I had the salmon, tuna and red prawn sashimi to start which was so fresh and gorgeously presented. For the main, I couldn't go past the calamari pasta (which is shapes like calamari rings) with chargrilled prawns, crab, lobster and calamari. I found myself mopping up the sauce with bread at the end. For dessert I went with the peach melba which looks just like a peach but is actually peach mousse encased in fine white chocolate and dusted with dehydrated peach dust. The whole experience was absolutely gorgeous and albeit very expensive, it was such a treat!
