London’s only 3 Michelin star hotel restaurant.

Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester is perfect for a posh (and very expensive!) date...and the curtained showpiece "Table Lumière" even gets served a special surprise menu.

The 2010 Michelin Guide has recognised Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester as the city’s fourth 3-star restaurant (and currently the only one in a hotel).

The Dorchester’s General Manager stated that the restaurant offers “outstanding cuisine in elegant surroundings with an unmatched level of service.”  Fresh, seasonal ingredients are served with a modern twist.

Signature dishes at the classically French restaurant include seasonal vegetables cooked in a “cocotte”; fillet of Angus beef and seared foie gras Rossini; and an interesting reinterpretation of rum baba.

The Dorchester has been featured on this blog as a good hotel for spotting celebrities as well as an alternative to Claridge’s.  It also has one of the best spas in London as well as one of London’s most expensive suites.

The hotel – like the restaurant – is expensive but a reasonable choice if you feel you deserve a treat or wish to shower attention on a special someone.

Indeed a romantic dinner at Alain Ducasse with a room and spa treatment combo might be the ideal gift for the love of your life.

But do note London’s many other great restaurants that don’t need you to break the bank, including our favourite Lebanese eaterie (Al Waha).

And if you absolutely must have “posh nosh” then Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley has one fewer Michelin star but currently gets even better TripAdvisor reviews.  And the Berkeley also has a fabulous spa.
