London is full of classic, grand hotels that are renowned internationally.
The Dorchester falls in to this category and can be even described as one of the leaders of the pack.
Located on Park lane, Mayfair, overlooking Hyde Park, it is a favourite for celebrities and wealthy tourists living the jet set lifestyle.
As this is my last week living in London, where better to dine than in the opulent surroundings at The Grill at The Dorchester?
Look at the detail that has gone in to the flower arrangements - beautiful!
We started with a broccoli-flavoured Amuse Bouche...
Starter was delicious hake wrapped in lettuce with mussels and cucumber. The little black dots are lime-flavoured meringues with charcoal colouring....
Main course was salmon washed down with a delicious Alsace Riesling. The salmon was perfect and the flavours complemented each other amazingly.
The boys went for pork which looked impressive but none of us were willing to share with each other as it was so good!
Dessert was a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate and hazelnut Molineux.
Crack open the chocolate ball and it oozes with warm melted chocolate all over your plate....
Surprisingly, the restaurant and the hotel as a whole was extremely quiet. We're putting this down to it being a Tuesday night in January because, quite simply, The Dorchester is lovely - the perfect place to take the parents of if you are celebrating something special!
Fantastic food and large portion sizes - we all left in massive food coma!
