Carve up a tender carnivorous treat in London’s most luxurious neighbourhood. Mayfair serves meat lovers a choice of well-sourced and flavoursome steaks at establishments that have a global reputation. So get your tastebuds ready for sizzling steaks prepared and cooked to perfection. This is our guide to the best steak in Mayfair.
Goodman’s restaurant in Mayfair serves the finest steaks. One of three Goodman steakhouses in the capital, this Mayfair restaurant feels like a refined Victorian parlour, with dark polished wood.
But the meat is the star here. Goodman beef comes from the Lake District, Spain and the US, aged onsite to bring out the concentrated flavours, before cooking in a giant charcoal oven for a smoky taste. The result is a sizable chunk of juicy beef food critics rave about. Picture tucking into a grass-fed fillet with peppercorn sauce or a burger with truffle chips. Or just book a table and make it happen.
34 Mayfair is a stylish art déco restaurant with a focus on meat and grilled dishes. It is utterly elegant, the service is flawless and the steak is superb. Fresh seasonal ingredients ensure there’s a balance of dishes, and the large outdoor terrace is cooling in summer and cosy in winter.
From the menu, you can indulge in a Japanese Wagyu steak, choose the Bannockburn bone-in rib-eye or share a Heritage tomahawk. With live jazz evenings adding to the charm, 34 Mayfair is a hidden gem, offering a dining experience to remember.
The Guinea, Mayfair
For less fine dining and more casual affair, The Guinea Grill, Mayfair is the place to head. There’s been a pub here for over 500 years, and in the 1950s, it developed a reputation as THE place for great steak. Back then, you put a mark on raw steak to indicate your portion, then it was priced, cooked and served.
That started a word-of-mouth success, with famous names seeking out the famous steaks. And if you nip to the gents loo, you can see some of those famous autographs. Today, you can expect fine cuts of dry-aged, grass-fed British beef cooked on an open grill – from sirloin on the bone to fillet and Chateaubriand. This is an unpretentious establishment where the food does the talking.
The Meat & Wine Co, Mayfair
You may think Mayfair has enough steak to go around, but The Meat & Wine Co brings something new to the neighbourhood. Their steak restaurant chain established in Australia offers food packed with African flavours. The steaks are premium, wines are well curated and the African-inspired decor creates a warm and friendly vibe.
On the menu, there’s a mix of African cuisine like Biltong appetisers, seafood skewers and vegetarian options, if your fellow diners are less carnivorous than you. For steaks, try the range of Tomahawks, Finnish rib-eye or Black Angus fillets grilled how you like with beef dripping chips and fermented chilli sauce.
Put the finishing touch to your memorable steak meal with a stay to remember at The Clermont, Victoria, with comfy luxury rooms and suites.
