Le Pont De La Tour, Hereford Road or Landau Restaurant?
My boyfriend and I are celebrating our anniversary and need help. I'm a big foodie and would love something very good to eat in our celebration. any recommendations? i'm open to everything. i would just like to know which is the best restaurant. thanks!
Some of my family (who were visiting from overseas) and I tried Hereford Road on a Sunday night a few weeks ago. There were four of us. We were not bowled over, I have to say. I had a crab on toast appetizer, which had a curry-based dressing and which (for me) was not much above what you would find in a good college canteen. I followed this with a beef cheek main dish. This was quite flavourful but not perfect, and I found I had to add ground pepper from the table.
My brother, who used to work in the restaurant business, said Sunday nights can be iffy due to the chef often taking that night off. Nonetheless, I would not hurry back.
In contrast to this experience, we went to Phoenix Palace a couple of times and Tom Ilic and thoroughly enjoyed those occasions. Tom Ilic does wonderful food, with maximum flavour at minimal prices. Kudos to him.
