It’s no secret that London is booming with fancy restaurants and cafés right now, many of them beautifully decorated with flowers and such, clearly doing it for the ‘gram. I’ve had my eye on a particular restaurant for a few years now, but for some reason hadn’t been able to visit it, so this time I made sure to give it a visit! Dalloway Terrace change their theme every year according to the seasons, and this time to welcome the autumn season, they decorated their walls with red and orange leaves! I’m totally Fall-ing for it.
Situated a few minutes’ walk from Tottenham Court Road station, Dalloway Terrace is located in London’s literary heartland, Bloomsbury. This outdoor terrace restaurant looks so elegant and is lit up everywhere with fairy lights, giving off the peaceful charm of a secluded secret garden.
As it is a really popular restaurant, it’s best to book a table before you go. My boyfriend and I went there for dinner so we went for their all-day menu. They also offer breakfast, weekend brunch, pre-theatre (3 course set menu) and afternoon tea options too.
For starters, we shared an octopus carpaccio (been loving octopus since our visit to Santorini last year!) and a Caesar salad, which were both really nice. For mains, we both ordered the pan roasted venison, which came with spiced red cabbage, carrot purée and pistachio crust. It sounds like a wacky mix, but it was actually a pretty good combination, and the flavours went well together. The venison was also cooked to perfection!
For dessert (we were so full but still had the stomach for dessert!), we shared a dark chocolate fondant with roasted hazelnut ice cream. It was so sweet but a great finishing touch to the whole meal.
The calm atmosphere, beautiful interior design and wonderful meal made this place worth the visit; I might even go again for their winter theme, as I’m sure the décor will be just as stunning!
