Quiet dinner London SW1/Pimlico/Victoria

I've enjoyed Thomas Cubitt, Pantechnicon, Orange, Botanist, and the local pubs but need a quiet place for a nice (but not quite Zafferano or Santini level) dinner with an old friend. What am I missing?

  1. I like Hunan and Tinello in that area.

    1. I second brokentelephone - between those suggestions and the places you've already visited I think thats about it. Unfortunately it's not the most exciting area for food.

      Actually, Gastronomica on Tachbrook Street is also a nice spot for Italian meats/cheeses and wine - (slightly grim setting though)

      The Admiral Codrington isn't too far if youre already at Sloane Sq

      1. Le Cercle is on the outer edge of your range, but I was very impressed with food, service and price when I visited a couple of years ago. Quillon, which again I've only been to for lunch, does the upscale Indian thing quite well in my view, but my London Indian experience is a bit limited. And I'll third Hunan.

        1. The Ebury Wine Bar is a lovely spot to spend a couple of informal hours. Caraffini in Lower Sloane Street is rather swisher, and excellent IMO.

          1. Used to live in Pimlico for 3 years. Le pou au pot is great - but can be pricey. My favourite for a relaxing time is Grumbles - a bistro with a good selection of wine at cheap prices.
