L'Autre Pied / Arbutus for Lunch?


I recently offered a friend a long list of potential eateries we should visit on our next trip to London, out of the list these two were picked out as the ones we should most consider. I have been to Arbutus before, and Pied a Terre but not L'Autre. There wil be four of us attending on a Friday Lunch, and I suspect aiming for the set menus. Now both seem to offer two choices, and while Arbutus is a little cheaper I wonder if Autre may be slightly more relaxed and lend itself to a quieter lunch (I remember Arbutus being very noisy)? one in the party would like fish, either particularly good at cooking this?

Any thoughts greatly appreciated

  1. Stanley, I've been to both a few times and I'm a big fan of each. However, L'Autre Pied is definitely a quieter, more refined lunch spot with less hustle and bustle than Arbutus. It is still relaxed though and the cooking is a definite step up from Arbutus.
