Dinner at Criterion

Central London is the hub of musical theatre, comedy clubs and music events. A thrifty tourist’s dream is to find a great pre-theatre meal or evening out without the sometimes extortionate price tag.

Enter Criterion.


Though its namesake is the Criterion theatre situated adjacent, the Criterion Restaurant oozes sophistication and offers a welcome oasis away from rainy London.

With its beautifully intricate ceilings and décorplush seats and live pianist, it is perfect for an evening of relaxation.Whether you are a tourist or not, you will be transported away on holiday, at least for an evening.

As part of a 3 course meal, a champagne cocktail comes complimentary on arrival before a selection of well-presented food.
