DINING - Copy

The Ritz Restaurant has been named ‘Best Restaurant in London 2015’ in Bookatable’s first ever Restaurant Awards. The awards which launched this week reveal the top 50 best restaurants in the city, based on verified customer reviews and ratings on www.bookatable.co.uk, Europe’s largest online reservations website. Other restaurants appearing in the Top 50 Best Restaurants in London include Michelin-starred Ametsa with Arzak Instruction, Adam Handling at Caxton, Hakkasan and many more. Bookatable’s Restaurant Awards 2015 analysed over 150,000 verified diner reviews and ratings from the Bookatable website and took into consideration a number of factors including number of reviews submitted, star ratings, and review content to determine the final list of winners.

The brand new awards launched in five regions across the UK with a total of over 130 restaurants receiving accolades. For London specifically, alongside a list of the top 50 best restaurants in the capital, Bookatable has announced top 10s in categories such as best for Italian, Indian and British cuisine, and best for al fresco or afternoon tea, amongst others. All reviews on the site are left by verified Bookatable diners; only people who have actually dined at the restaurant can leave a review.

Speaking about the awards, Joe Steele, CEO Bookatable, said, “Reviews are playing an ever more vital role in the decision-making process for diners when choosing a restaurant. We have made diner reviews a key feature of our site, to help our consumers to discover and be inspired by trusted ratings from fellow foodies. As part of this, we are pleased to launch our very own restaurant awards, based on the data from our hundreds of thousands of verified reviews by consumers who have booked online and dined through Bookatable.co.uk.”
