Planet of the Grapes boasts fine food as well as fine wine. With over 300 wines and a selection of tapas-style food on offer, it offers a unique retreat from the bustle of the City.

The simple décor allows the wine covering the walls to be the main attraction, with various wine-related pictures and photographs serving as an accompaniment. To encourage guests to browse the wines, Planet of the Grapes does not provide a wine list, but experts are always on hand to help make a decision.

The Planet of the Grapes menu has a Spanish feel, with dishes such as wild boar croquettes with grain mustard aioli, and veal scaloppini examples of the flavour-rich dishes on the daily-changing menu.

Offering an impressive selection of wines alongside hearty grazing dishes, Planet of the Grapes in London sits a 2-minute walk from Mansion House Tube Station.

    Excellent, I think the lady who served us was called Marguerite. She was brilliant. Made our lunch special, fun and friendly. I gave her some presents to look after in the morning and she brought them over to the table, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you. Will definitely be coming back again and again....

    Interesting and wide selection of good wines, positioned at Off-licence prices with a reasonable amount of corkage. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and clearly enjoy working there. The food we ordered was jolly good and clearly they are doing well as the guy on the next table had been there three nights running.

    Wine was v good, it's really nice that you get to pick your own wine from the shelf. Food was delicious, maybe portions were smaller than described by waitress, but v tasty.

    Excellent food, wine and service at a reasonable price. Rather noisy

    Very good place, offering good food and I like the wine offering. Menus really suit a group of people, and pies are first rate. Staff are lovely too. Only slight gripe is that the chips were not cooked through... but that's minor and didn't reduce the enjoyment of the meal!
