‘Fera at Claridge’s’ is a stunning restaurant located in the heart of London’s luxurious shopping district. The dining spot boasts an elegant and sophisticated contemporary ‘art deco’ interior design, and a magnificently grand exterior, which is decorated by a variety of world flags and spot lights. It’s safe to say that when we arrived at Fera, the classy entrance blew us away and as a result, our expectations for the food and service were set pretty high.

The Mayfair restaurant is inspired by the simplicity and beauty of nature and wild ingredients. Although the dining floor may not be the most colourful in all of London, it does emulate the establishments principle inspiration extremely well (not to mention there’s a bare wooden tree sculpture lodged in the centre of the room).
Now onto our favourite and most important part of the dining experience, the food! The menus Fera offers change, quite literally, as often as the seasons. The stylish restaurant structures its menu around what food and ingredients are currently growing in its prime. So it’s important to note that the food we tried last week, and will talk about in this post, may not be available when you visit. But I’m sure Fera will offer a sensational variety of dishes whatever the weather!

When we visited Fera at Claridge’s, they were offering a seven course sea food dominated menu and, well, we couldn’t refuse! Each dish got better and better as the night went on, my very favourite courses were the two final dessert dishes, the Bergamot, parsley and honey cake, and the chocolate custard, early grey lemon leaf (I know, I have too much of a sweet tooth!) Seven courses may sound like it would be quite a challenge to clear and then hobble all the way home, however, the small portions left us feeling comfortably satisfied.
As like with many city dining spots, if you’ve not got the appetite to eat out, Fera also has a very chic cocktail bar non diners can retire to after a long day of working or shopping, and offers a large selection of refreshing and beautifully presented cocktails.

A meal for two including drinks and a service tip amounts to approximately £300, meaning you’ll probably only dine at Fera when you’re celebrating an occasion like an anniversary, special birthday or graduation (a special time when you do not mind delving that little bit deeper into your purse or wallet!) Nevertheless, in this case the saying ‘you get what you pay for’ could not be more relevant. The service was phenomenal, the food was dreamy and the atmosphere was incredibly relaxed. Would we ever return to Simon Rogan’s classy regal restaurant? … Hell yes!
Fera at Claridge’s is an extremely popular dining spot for London’s residents, tourists and visitors. So if fancy joining in on the unique and sophisticated dining experience, visit the official Fera at Claridge’s web page here to make that all important booking.
