loti eats | the trafalgar dining rooms

Having undergone a huge transformation in 2017 The Trafalgar re-opened its doors in October of that year to show off their hip new look. Inside you’ll find the Trafalgar Dining Rooms, a New York-inspired restaurant, re-imagined for London, serving up Mediterranean dishes with a twist.

The restaurant definitely looks the part with great views of Trafalgar Square and pretty special interior design. Open all day, we got comfortable in a huge, plush booth to enjoy dinner. First up were their grilled sardines with green chilli, garlic and parsley, and zesty courgette fritters, crushed broad beans and garlic yoghurt; both dishes were a strong start.

For mains, the rib-eye served with garlic mayo and fries, was a simple dish, cooked well and just what we wanted, especially as it came with lashings of that dip. We also tried the salmon with tenderstem broccoli and Chraimeh sauce on the side, which gave the dish a warming lift.

We finished with the panna cotta with Etna clementine and granola, which was absolutely amazing…super fresh, light and tangy on the tongue. We’d go back just for this. Once you’ve had that very dessert, we recommend getting a nightcap on their rooftop while looking out at the London skyline, and yes it’s covered so you can still enjoy those views even when the weather bad.
