The exquisite landmark of fine dining, The Ritz Restaurant has been awarded the title of ‘Best Restaurant in London 2016’ in the Bookatable Restaurant Awards. The Awards, in its second year, reveals the top 50 best restaurants in London, based on verified diner 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 Sketch, Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester, Café Royal, Fera at Claridge’s, Marcus Wareing’s Marcus and  OXO Tower Brasserie to name a few.

Bookatable’s Restaurant Awards 2016 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 Awards give accolades to over 150 restaurants across 15 counties in the UK. Restaurants were presented with awards across 13 categories including Best Alfresco, Best Afternoon Tea, Best Child-Friendly, Best Indian, Best Italian, Best British and Best Steak. All reviews on the site are left by verified Bookatable diners; only people who have dined at the restaurant can leave a review.

Speaking about the awards, Joe Steele, CEO Bookatable, said, ‘‘We’re pleased to announce the second annual Bookatable Awards. It’s clear to see reviews continue to play a vital role in the decision-making process for both restaurants and diners. We want diners to be inspired by trusted ratings from fellow foodies so that is why we only ever publish reviews from verified diners, who have booked and dined at restaurants via Bookatable.“
