Restaurant description

A consistent favourite in exclusive Knightsbridge, Motcombs has served elegant European bistro classics since 1982. A partially open kitchen creates a buzz in the dining room, and continental café-style pavement dining is offered during summer.

Showcasing high-end flavours, the Motcombs menu features an array of dishes from France, Italy and beyond. Sample a luxuriously rich lobster risotto, calves liver with crispy pancetta and smooth creamed potatoes, or an adventurous creation from the Motcombs restaurant special board. For dessert, classic recipes include apple flan, or a moreish flourless chocolate cake.

A sterling selection from the Motcombs Knightsbridge wine cellar includes superb vintage bottles from the diverse French wine regions, alongside easy-drinking international blends. A laidback neighbourhood vibe in the cosy Motcombs bar also draws in a discerning celebrity clientele.

Blending Parisian chic and effortless Belgravia style, Motcombs London offers a bohemian vibe with its gallery of artwork and bold colour palette. Knightsbridge Tube Station is 7 minutes’ walk away.

    Firstly, Motcombs had no note of our Bookatabke reservation. Secondly, despite my booking being specifically for the restaurant, we had to eat in the bar/brasserie as there were apparently too few customers to warrant opening the restaurant. So, both disappointing events. Despite this, the service was OK and the meal was enjoyable (despite 2 of us having liver that was shaved so thinly that it invitably was “well done” rather than, as requested, pink). That said, it’s the second time we have been required to eat in the brasserie after booking the restaurant, so Motcomb’s is now off our list.

    Nine of us ate together and we were all very happy with the service and what we ate. The Dover Sole was very popular. Thank you We enjoyed the space and ability to converse comfortably without a nearby table being too close.
