Last night I had the pleasure of celebrating my cousin’s 21st birthday with our family at the restaurants ‘Ours’ in Knightsbridge London. The venue features a restaurant, cocktail bar & lounge, private dining room and terrace. The words beautiful & serene do not do this place justice, its definitely a must visit for everyone!
Seeing as it was a celebration what better way to start off the night than with a few cocktails! I ordered a classic margarita with salt on the rim. It came in a classic champagne glass, think 1920’s. The salt was present all over the glass, which is something I’ve never seen before, but it looked great!
For starters we ordered the calamari, which came with zucchini & lemon mayonnaise. The calamari was soooooo good, super flavourful & the lemon mayonnaise complimented it really well. It was nice and crunchy on the outside, yet perfectly cooked inside.
We also ordered the halloumi popcorn, which was fried halloumi in little balls. It was very flavourful again & came with burnt tahini mayonnaise, which went so well with the calamari! Definitely a must try.
For mains I ordered the filet tenderloin which comes with macaroni gratin & a mustard jus. The macaroni gratin was long pieces of macaroni with cheese that had been grilled & this was easily one of the best meals I’ve had this year. The jus really complimented the macaroni & the filet. Definitely a must try!
Everyone loves good picture and this restaurant provided so many great photo ops! I ended up taking advantage of them all & got some really great pictures!
This restaurant has several different places to get pictures including a flower wall, their flower entrance, the sign at the entrance reading ‘whats ours is yours’, there are trees throughout the cocktail lounge covered in fairy lights, & the bathrooms have plenty of photo ops and not to mention the whole restaurant has AMAZING lighting! Get those pictures innnnnnn!
I’d like to finish this post by saying how enjoyable our experience was at the restaurant ‘Ours’ and I would definitely recommend it to many people. The prices are definitely on the upper end of the spectrum so if you’re planning to do a night where you dress up & splurge I would recommend this restaurant.
