Court Restaurant at the British Museum: "Artfully plated food" Great Court Restaurant Tip by KittyLou

Great Court Restaurant, London: 4 reviews and 7 photos


We made a reservation for our anniversary dinner and were given a white linen covered table with a view down into the reading room. It was perfect for us. We both ordered the chicken Caesar salad. You have never seen a Caesar salad that looks anything like what we were served. It rolled and plated in an artful geometric design. We followed the salad with a lovely plate of asparagus, potatoes and Parma ham. Light but luscious!
