The German Gymnasium
Restaurants don't come much more stunning than this. Located in a Grade II-listed re-purposed gym from 1865, The German Gymnasium serves German/European inspired plates for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Set over two floors (plus a heated terrace), food is served on marble topped tables with sparkling glasses and shiny silverware. The ground floor features a giant central bar packed full of spirits, lit by glowing orb lights and lined with classy cream leather stools.
Ascending floating black staircases, you arrive in the wrap-around upstairs balcony restaurant which offers stunning views down onto the diners below.
The menu features a range of German delights. The Truffled beef broth came with tasty liver dumplings. The Seared sea bass with cauliflower puree, roasted florets and wilted spinach was light and creamy, and a dessert of chocolate tart with caramelised hazelnuts was the perfect end to an indulgent meal.
If you're looking for a place to impress, The German Gymnasium is a safe bet. Even if the food doesn't win you over then just being in this beautiful setting is worth the trip.
