Somewhere you should eat… La Giaconda Café Bar Restaurant

Pop-ups, sparse menus, theatrical dining clubs… all wonderfully on trend experiences in the city, but after a while you’ve got to spare a thought to those ever dependable restaurants which still take reservations and will most certainly be there when the  fanatical hype has settled. At least, that seems to be the case with La Giaconda. Housed on Denmark Street, the “French-ish” restaurant  was once a 60s hangout for the likes of Bowie and The Kinks, and now after a few refurbs later, is still a fabulous destination where effortlessly good food is king and the secret, restaurant room (fronted by a more modest looking cafe) earns extra points for being the kind of surprise that’s bound to impress.  Snag a cosy table on a Friday – the room sits less than 30 – and tuck into a quality selection of wines (which start from £3.50), before working through everything from  scallops with straw potatoes for starters to a unforgettable lamb steak. The prices are great too.   Check out pics below from our recent visit but for more info, visit: www.giacondadining.com
