One restaurant I had never tried and still wondering why is the Caxton Grill ! The restaurant is perfectly located a few minutes walk from St.James’ Park, Victoria and Westminster and based in the beautiful St Ermin’s Hotel.
One Saturday evening, we headed out for a “quick bite” as we like to call it and found ourselves at the Caxton Grill !
We were greeted warmly by the Restaurant Manager and Hostess who escorted us to a quiet table by the window which was extremely romantic…
The restaurant is incredibly stylish with its beautiful interiors, comfortable seating and candles.
I tried the picked crab watermelon, avocado, sweetcorn £9.00, which was not only beautiful to look out but incredibly tasty and fresh. My guest tried the equally delicious hand dived scallops, cauliflower, dates, apple £15.00
The service I must admit was excellent, attentive to our needs and fast. Our lovely waiter was full of brilliant recommendations and was keen for us to order from the Josper, the specifically imported oven that gives the meat a unique flavour.
I ordered the Barbecued loin of pork with maple glaze and onion rings £21. Could it had been more tender and tasty ? No I don’t think so ! Personally, I did not like the BBQ sauce that came on the side, I never liked BBQ sauce so I don’t think I can be a good judge but I would have preferred another sauce or…nothing else as it was excellent as it was.
My guest ordered the Vintage 35 day aged Rib Eye, 350g £32, a fantastic tender piece of meat and cooked to perfection – which is always rare in London!
The presentation was more rustic than the starters but still looking immaculate. It is obvious that the Head Chef Adam Handling takes cooking very seriously and his passionate about his food. We loved the flavours added so simple sides like herbs to the fries, chilly and garlic to the spinach.
A warm congratulation to the Pastry Chef for executing two incredibly high on caloric but so worth it desserts !
The white chocolate and caramelised banana, bread & butter pudding with peanut ice cream £8 was to die for and most probably a dessert Elvis would order should he still be alive !
While my chocolate orange, salted caramel, burnt orange ice cream £10 was pure perfection.
Caxton Grill is a serious contender in my “Favourite London Restaurants” list !
