Restaurant for New Year's Eve in London

I'm looking for a restaurant with nice atmosphere and very good food in Central London (better if walking distance to Westminster) for New Year's Eve.
Any tip?

  1. What kind of age group and about how many involved? Any culinary hates? Any £££ considerations? Do you want somewhere which will be jumping at midnight, or do you want to be near Big Ben/ Trafalgar Sq. by then?

    Maybe Langan's in Stratton St. or somewhere good in Chinatown?

      Oh yes in fact... here some more details:

      We are a couple,the kind of food doesn't matter but it has to be very good. The budget is not a problem but the place has to be worth the money I spend...

      For midnight we would like to go to Big Ben, so the nearest the better!

      Thanks a lot for the suggestions!!

    2. have a look at Gary Rhode's one in the "Gerkin" building - the food is good (you can find much better in London of course) but the view is amazing and not too far from Big Ben. There is also a champagne bar in the building - again with the views over the city.

      If you are after great food first of all - then i would try something like Petrus, or Gordon Ramsay on Hospital Rd - or Gordon Ramsay in Claridges...

      1. We had a sumptuous New Year's Eve feast at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant at the Claridge four years ago. It was memorable. A magician strolled the tables (as did bagpipe players, until someone must have complained it was deafening!). It was many pounds, but it was memorable.
