The 20 most beautiful restaurants in London

Cigalon

Cigalon is a slice of sunny Provence in London’s legal throbbing heart. Set in a former auction house on Chancery Lane, entering Cigalon’s ethereal white space you’re transported to a land of light and lavender, cloudless climes and star anise.

From the Tomette tiles paving the entrance and the white shuttered doors, to the high mirrors, lilac honeycomb trellising, and cicadas trilling through the speakers, the environment is almost a trompe l’oiel trick to fool you into thinking you’re in Southern France.

Named after a 1935 film by Marcel Pagnol about a Provençal chef with delusions of grandeur, Cigalon’s plush, crescent-shaped lilac booths are velveteen to the touch, while white birdcage-like fixtures filled with foliage hang form the glass-domed ceiling.

  2. How wonderful to see such opulent places to dine – my visit to Zedel’s when I was in London three years ago was memorable for the food, service, and of course the wine, as well as the OTT decor. A memorable experience. Thanks for these photographs.
