London Shell Co. is the restaurant that will truly transport you… from Paddington to Camden and back again. Set aboard the Prince Regent, this fine barge hosts about 40 guests for a waterborne feast. It then embarks on a gentle cruise along Regent’s Canal while you have dinner. Their specialty is great British seafood, with all your courses paired with a wine chosen and enthusiastically served by chap-in-charge Harry.
Everything about Minnow is just lovely – even their website is a delight to visit. Think pastel colours, Parisian-style café tables and plenty of flora. The food is simple yet complicated in a way that is difficult to explain, but there’s no doubt that it’ll have you coming back for more. Plus, the menu is always changing so there’s always an excuse to go back! The whole place oozes romance, so it’s a surefire way to impress
This tiny 30-seater restaurant is a former 17th-century basement bakery and ever since it opened its doors in 2014, it’s been dealing with a back-log of hungry customers, all desperate to get a taste of its delicious wood grill. There’s a low-key elegance to Kitty Fisher’s: no rooftop views or pop-up gimmicks, just classic British sophistication. It couldn’t be a better date spot — but you’ll have to join the waiting list.
