A guide to the best restaurants in Soho

As my office is right outside the Soho area I`m spending a dangerous amount of time eating my way through Soho. This particular area of London is famous for its great restaurants, however there can be some really bad ones as well so trying to figure out which one to pick in an extremely busy, over touristy area, can be daunting. As such I`ve put together a list of my favourites restaurants so far, places where I keep going back to as they`re consistently good and that I truly recommend to all of you to try.

*Continuously adding restaurants to this list as I try new ones so keep an eye on it. The restaurants are in no particular order.

1. Hawksmoor Air Street - Steakhouse
Best for: mind blowing steaks and triple cooked chips.
Price range: ££££ but so worth it

2. Burger & Lobster - American/ Seafood
Best for: making lobsters available to the masses, this restaurant was made for success. Get there early as the queue can get huge. Read my Burger & Lobster review here.
Price range: £££

Price range: ££££

Best for: fuss free dining with really good food. Especially loved here the fries and salads.

6. Bocca di Lupo - Italian small plates
Best for: we always return to Bocca di Lupo as it`s the type of restaurant that`s consistently good and never disappoints.
Price range: £££

17. Copita - Spanish Tapas
Best for: I`m sure by now you have noticed a trend...the 3rd tapas on the list but I absolutely love this type of food that`s made for sharing as I get to try loads of dishes. I also feel that`s easier to get big flavours going in smaller plates than in main courses which is why I love going to places where you can share food.
Price range: £££

18. Ceviche - Peruvian small plates
Best for: Modern Peruvian cuisine is increasingly becoming more popular in London with some really good restaurants around the city. The food as Ceviche is fresh and beautifully cooked. Read my review of Ceviche here.
