A Lunch Date at Hunter 468 – The Arch London
Last weekend I went for a lovely lunch at the sophisticated Hunter 486 at Belgravia’s The Arch London. The restaurant is located just through the main entrance to the hotel off Cumberland Road and we dined on olives, quinoa salad, fillet steak, whilst drinking cocktails and Chardonnay wine. If you know me, you’ll know this is my perfect kind of Saturday.
Hunter 486 is an award-winning food and fine wine in a laid-back luxury setting with open plan kitchen and an enticing menu to suit all tastes. Think heavenly food and drink in a casual, relaxed atmosphere, featuring leather booths, blown glass chandeliers and imaginative pieces of artwork.
To begin with me and Theo started with a cocktail for me called Our Mojito and Theo enjoyed a £10 glass of Marlborough white wine. We then treated ourselves to some olives and you also get served fresh bread as you wait for your starters. It was such a great little touch!
This cocktail was INCRED.
For starters I had quinoa salad with roasted vegetables and rocket, whilst Theo indulged in Cornish crab salad. The quinoa salad was absolutally gorgeous and the dressing was insane. Next we ordered our mains which included me getting stuck in to a Fillet Steak with peppercorn sauce and sweet potato chips, whilst Theo had an incredible tasting seared duck breast with a lentil garnish and spinach side. It was one of those moments whilst we were eating when neither of us spoke for over three minutes. Says it all really….
Then after nearly two hours of us dining on a feast of food and lots of wine, we used our full bodies to order even more food. I chose the chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream and peanut brittle whilst Theo ordered vanilla and passionfruit cheesecake with vanilla ice-cream.
After a wonderful meal we had to bring ourselves to leave and actually stand up which was painful considering the amount of food we had eaten. The restaurant seemed to be pretty quiet throughout the time we were in the restaurant but we have no idea why as the food was incredible, the service was A* and the menu was varied.
They also had an Express Menu which was two courses for £19 and three courses for £21 – a bargain if you want a great atmosphere with divine food.
Book a table here if you want to experience the food baby I had post-lunch!
*This visit was complimentary but all of my opinions are my own. As always.
