Dine at The Meat & Wine Co.

To finish off the perfect Mother’s Day, nothing beats an evening of fine dining. There’s no need to look any further for restaurants in London Mayfair, as our award-winning culinary team has prepared an extensive A la Carte menu.


To kick things off, you can enjoy our lightly fried calamari, served with cucumber, onion, lemon, and nam jim sauce for a perfect blend of flavour and texture, or try our succulent King Prawns, accompanied by XO butter, fermented chilli sauce, and coriander. But for the ultimate indulgence, we’d recommend our Japanese A3 Wagyu Skewer – 100g of certified Kagoshima A3 Wagyu beef, served with caviar, garlic crème fraîche, chives, and charred sourdough. 


For the mains, it’s hard to go past the iconic premium steaks that have made us the best steak restaurant in London. From the richly marbled Wagyu to our signature in-house aged beef, each cut promises a culinary journey like no other. You can complement your steak with a glass of wine or a cocktail from our extensive drinks list, with our friendly staff on hand to recommend the ideal pairing.

If steak isn’t your preference, we offer an excellent range of culinary masterpieces such as our Catch of the Day or our sumptuous Celeriac Risotto made with salt-baked celeriac, creamy arborio rice, and puffed pearl barley. And don’t forget about our legendary chicken skewers, which are basted with Mozambique peri-peri and lemon. 


No Mother’s Day celebration is complete without indulging in something sweet. Our decadent dessert menu offers a range of classic flavours that rival any Mayfair restaurants London, including our must-try Chocolate & Hazelnut Fondant, with a melted white chocolate centre and hazelnut praline gelato. If you’re looking for a lighter option, our Crème Brûlée is a wonderful choice, served with a ginger snap biscuit, whipped mascarpone, and lemon balm. Or for those who want to go all out, try our unforgettable Layered Wagyu Fat Delice, featuring a combination of chocolate and nut brownie, peanut butter caramel, chocolate mousse, Wagyu fat, chocolate ganache, dehydrated peanut butter, and coconut ice-cream.
