2. DUCK AND WAFFLE Located on the 40th floor with floor-to-ceiling windows, this modern restaurant has the perfect ambience for a romantic date night. But this spot is more than just fancy views, as it’s a 24-hour eatery infamous for its duck leg on a sweet waffle. It’s suitable for any time of the day. But they also have plenty more on the menu, all of which are innovative and tasty. If you love pork scratchings, try their crispy pigs’ ears displayed in long strips within a paper bag. Or the sausage meat hugged in bacon makes a festive treat in the summer. For sunny days or night, try their quirky list of desserts, including eggy bread with cinnamon ice cream, all the while soaking in the glamorous views of the city.

3. HUNAN Love to try new foods? Hunan is where the fearless eaters head to. This Chinese restaurant offers an extensive menu, but you don’t get to choose what you’re eating. Explain what you like and despise to your waiter, and they’ll find the perfect dish for your tastes. This trusting experience is rather exciting and gets you to eat outside of your comfort zone. With mini dishes, you’ll receive several courses in one sitting so you’re bound to discover something that hits the spot. Don’t dine alone though, because they only welcome parties of two or more. 51 Pimlico Rd, Belgravia, London SW1W 8NE
4. BUONA SERA For larger parties, Buona Sera is a definite goto. This quirky restaurant offers Italian cuisine, but waiters present your food via ladders from underneath you. The seats are a part of the critical infrastructure of the restaurant. It’s like a luxury treehouse where you eat mouthwatering dishes made from fresh ingredients. To get seated, you have to climb up the ladders, to make it a one-of-a-kind dining experience with ultimate privacy and peace.289a King’s Road, Chelsea, London, SW3 5EW
