Eating around the strand area
in Going out deals
2 replies 1K views
Two of us are going to the Savoy theatre on Saturday (matinee performance) and would like to eat when we come out. Does anyone have some recommendations of somewhere to have a decent average priced meal not Indian or asian, would like English, American or Mediterranean.

There is a Leon restaurant not far from the Savoy, on the Strand (same side of Savoy), they are usually reasonably priced and have very good food.
At one point the Strand Palace Hotel used to do a carvery, not sure if they still do, but it used to be fantastic, if you are a carnivore you get a super bargain.
Beware of the restaurants around Covent Garden as a lot of them are tourist traps and the food is not always very good.
A very good Italian restaurant, Sartori, is not too far from the Savoy, it is near the top of St Martin's Lane, here is the link if you want to check it out, http://www.sartori-restaurant.com/ they also have fixed price menus, I have never had a bad meal there and I am Italian myself, so I would know if it was rubbish!
Hope you have a lovely time!
But when I read the thread I instantly thought of a Wowcher deal I'd seen this week at a restaurant I've used three or four times and always enjoyed: http://www.wowcher.co.uk/deals/london/restaurants/deal-94438-detail/29-instead-74-85-2-course-meal-2-glass-wine-caf/deal.html. You have to be in the know to find it usually because it is tucked away in a narrow alley that few tourists pause long enough to enter, behind the Royal Opera House.
When I tried to Google the deal for you I found one that had been bought by no less than 578 people and was now closed, but it seems they have another current one running!
A slightly whacky place to try is Sarastro in Drury Lane if not just because some of the tables entail clambering up little staircases up the sides into little theatre style boxes - it is all rather jolly - but I can't remember much about prices and the food!
However, I shall be taking note of Caterina's Italian suggestion myself - that sounds a safe bet!
