Bursting with iconic heritage, Quaglino’s is hidden in the heart of St James’s and is the ideal place to indulge in contemporary European food, legendary cocktails and live music.

Since its inception by Giovanni Quaglino in 1929 to its reinvention by Terence Conran in 1993, right up to the present day, the restaurant plays an integral part in London’s social history and has always been out to impress.

Terence Conran bought the restaurant in 1993 and revived the name, aiming to revive the spirit of the original venue:

“When I walked down that catwalk staircase at Conran’s Quaglino’s in 1993, I thought here is a kind of London glamour that has been missing since probably 1929 when Giovanni Quaglino launched the original. It wasn’t an exercise in nostalgia though; it was a thoroughly modern take culminating in the excitingly impious altar dedicated to worshipping crustacea.”

Having undergone a full-scale, multi-million pound renovation at the hands of Russell Sage Studio in 2014, the interiors have been brought right up to date, whilst keeping the venue’s signature Art Deco flourishes and that sweeping staircase at the heart of the design.

The menu, designed by Executive Chef Jack Smith, is a perfect canon of European classics, all made using the highest quality British ingredients. The decadent dishes are available at lunch, dinner and then on into the night alongside a vast selection of wines and signature cocktails.

Evenings at Quaglino’s are complete with live entertainment seven nights a week, maintaining the venue’s position as one of St James’ most spectacular dining destinations.

A favourite of many celebrities and royal guests, some of the restaurant’s most famous visitors include The Queen in 1956 and Princess Margaret – who enjoyed a permanently reserved table.
