We were there made January and ate in the ivy as a treat, we really enjoyed it but it was quite expensive.

Soooo many nice places to eat over there! Look up Rocket, Gaucho (steakhouse) and Riast, all lovely. Not sure what part of the city you'll be in but Gaucho has a few locations and I think Rocket may too. HTH.

If you like Indian food try any of the restaurants on Brick Lane. Sheba was the one we tried and it was great. Not dear either for your traditional curry and beer in the UK.

If you like Mexican you HAVE to go to Wahaca in Covent Garden!

There'd be bars around Covent Garden too... I went to a big place called Roadhouse before that had live music - it was a big place and pretty packed though so not sure of that's what you would be looking for! I'm nearly sure that there's a Porterhouse in Covent Garden too, same owners as the 2 in town here.

Was just going to suggest Wahaca, it's gorgeous!! There's loads of delicious Vietnamese places in East London, they're not fancy at all though; BYO, really cheap and absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend.

Ooops - just noticed my typo, that was meant to say Roast :)
