There are some (such as chef, James Close of the Raby Hunt
) who believe that Hedone is the finest restaurant in the country right now. Judging it from the lunch we had last weekend, it would be hard to disagree. Interestingly it's a restaurant very popular with the native Spanish people that I follow on twitter. The obsession that chef Mikael Jonsson apparently has in sourcing the very best products is something that very much appeals to them. Us too. We've never eaten better bread, or scallops. The scallop and truffle dish is seriously good. All the food is utterly sublime here, but I must also mention front of house. We've been to places in London where the service is efficient yet cold, not so here. Aurelie, FOH manager and Nicolas the sommelier were also such a huge part in one of the most enjoyable lunches we've ever had anywhere. Hedone is an exceptional restaurant.
7 course Lunch costs us £85 plus £45 for the truffle course which we shared.
The menu changes daily.
