Recipient of three Michelin stars, Gordon Ramsay is a world renowned chef and owner of several restaurants. Maze is an elegant bar and restaurant from the ever-increasing Gordon Ramsay stable, serving highly acclaimed cuisine from protege Jason Atherton. There is a strong emphasis on tasting menus and Tapas style dishes, with novelty high on the agenda. However the quality of the food does not suffer as a consequence - highly recommended.

We recently returned to Maze after a visit 3.5 years ago (which was for our wedding lunch)!

We booked for Sunday lunch, on a day which seemed to be the first day of spring - 18C in mid March. The fixed price menu seemed cheaper than I remember years ago - 6 courses £45. We had a voucher for £100 so we decided to go a-la-carte to give us more tasting options.

The plates are still tapas size, but are so packed with flavour that you couldn't possibly want a full sized plate. Also, I love tasting different flavours so the idea of lots of smaller, intense plates really appeals to me. And every course was divine. My menu started with a zingy crab salad, lots of lime and cucumber keeping it fresh. Second course was delicious quail legs which were sweetly flavoured with a cep risotto hiding a poached quail egg. I savoured every spoon of the risotto. Next was pan fried red mullet with clams which was refreshingly simple. And the final 'main' was chinese style pork belly with langoustine - as gorgeous as it sounds. For dessert I went for a peanut butter and cherry jam sandwich which consisted of a creamy parfait topped and tailed with a crispy, pistachio crumbed wafer, the flavours of peanut butter and cherries woven throughout. I savoured every bite.

My husband and I debated who picked the best dishes, needless to say he was very happy with his choices too. The suggested wine and dessert wines were great, and taking coffee and tea in the lounge overlooking a sunny Grosvenor square on a Sunday afternoon was a perfect end to our meal.

Thanks Joel for the voucher :) but I would have happily paid the full amount. Lunch prices are definitely great value for michelin starred food.

So yeah, a 7 course tasting menu set me back £60 but damn, I have to admit it was probably worth it.

My boyfriend and I went here recently for a special treat to ourselves for nothing in particular and we had an amazing time. It's not pretentious at all, in fact the whole atmosphere was very laid back and almost quite clubby. I'm really pleased I went for the tasting menu, as a non-expert when it comes to food I really enjoyed it and they'd obviously thought about putting together a menu that covered a range of food and styles. Some of it was really experimental... 'BLT' in a martini glass, anyone? But others were real classic dishes beautifully cooked and served.

Fantastic staff, great atmosphere, beautiful food that was a real experience. I can't really fault it apart from the fact that it comes in at quite a lot more than a KFC bargain bucket.

Yep this is a splurge restaurant, but for a special treat (or when the company expenses are out!), be sure to try out Maze. The concept is that you have lots of small plates to try out (like tapas, but with an English flavour). The food is to die for and its great to be able to try so many great concotions at once. The service is both discreet and friendly and the bar is a lovely place to while away the afternoon - hic! Do try this out, its a great place

This is a great place to come with a group of friends. Modern european food done tapas style - perfect for sharing. Have been three times now, and each time has been excellent. The setting is buzzy, the service is great, and the food is so good you'll want to try everything on the menu - so don't wear anything tight :)

The food's great, the wine list is excellent (we had a Californian Zinfandel from 2001 which was delicious)but the whole experience is just a bit too OTT. If you like your food served with a real flourish, then this is definitely the place to try.
