Hélène Darroze at The Connaught

Parisian designer Pierre Yovanovitch has brought a more colourful, contemporary look to this intimate dining room. The ambience is welcoming and sophisticated, with warm tones and beautiful velvet seating, as well as a pink marble chef’s table overlooking the pass.

The effortlessly stylish setting creates the perfect tone for the dishes here, and it’s no surprise that the perfectly managed service mirrors the meticulous nature of the cuisine, with every stage striking a pleasing balance between slick professionalism and relaxed confidence.

The immaculate restaurant team, including the team of sommeliers, are so engaging and fluent in their approach, it really is a joy to experience.
