The Best Michelin Star Restaurants
London's culinary boom has coincided with an increase in the number of Michelin star restaurants we lucky lot have access too. And if they're good enough for those lovely folk at Michelin as they beaver away in their Parisian lair, they're good enough for us. Obviously Michelin star restaurants are expensive affairs, so we've carefully chosen those that we think are the best in order that you don't waste your hard-earned on tiny morsels of overpriced food. Bon appétite.
The Ledbury
127 Ledbury Road, Notting Hill, London, W11 2AQ
The Ledbury in Notting Hill currently holds two Michelin stars but you get the feeling a third could well be on its way. It's often heralded as the capital's best restaurant and it's becoming increasingly difficult to disagree. Not only is the food exquisite, the restaurant is remarkably welcoming too, which is always good for somewhere of this calibre.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, 66 Knightsbridge, Knighsbridge, London, SW1X 7LA
Heston's first London restaurant was one of the biggest launches for years, and thankfully it was worthy of all the brouhaha. The food isn't as 'molecular' as The Fat Duck but it is very good indeed - so good, in fact, that the Michelin judges furnished it with a sparkling Michelin star within its first year of opening, and a second within its second.

Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester
The Dorchester Hotel, 53 Park Lane, Mayfair, London, W1K 1QA
One of only two London restaurants with three Michelin stars (the other being Ramsay's Royal Hospital Road restaurant), this one's the better bet for consistently sublime food. Try the rum baba - it's incredible.

Galvin at Windows
London Hilton on Park Lane, 22 Park Lane, Mayfair, London, W1K 1BE
This excellent restaurant from the Galvin brothers features superb cooking from Andre Garrett. But then the food has to be good to match the remarkable views out across London from the 28th floor of the Park Lane Hilton. A really great celebration venue.

Le Gavroche
43 Upper Brook Street, Mayfair, London, W1K 7QR
A bona fide legend amongst London restaurants, the Roux family's superlative French restaurant has been wowing London's diners for decades. About as far away from the Les Mis street urchin from where it takes its name, Le Gavroche is French food at its very best - and a favourite of those Michelin judges.

Texture
34 Portman Street, Marylebone, London, W1H 7BY
With the huge success of Noma (the Copenhagen restaurant ranked as number one in the world), Nordic cuisine seems to be on everybody's mind. Agnar Sverrisson and Xavier Rousset's superb restaurant combines the best Scandinavian influences with a modern European menu for what many fancy as the best restaurant in London.

Angler Restaurant
South Place Hotel, Seventh Floor, 3 South Place, The City, London, EC2M 2AF
With its first Michelin star coming in 2013, this relatively new restaurant achieved Guide success pretty quickly. And with good reason: this D&D restaurant is genuinely brilliant, with a gorgeous menu showcasing the best of British seafood, a lovely dining room (and terrace) and service that's pretty much second to none. Superb.
