I'll never forget the day we went to Brasserie Joël, because it was also the day I discovered the ultimate indulgence - beef tournedos Rossini - and after that, life can never be the same again. This fillet steak exemplified the reasons why, for me, French cuisine is simply the best. Dressed exquisitely with foie gras, truffle sauce and a potato cake the dish was delicate and precise.

I vaguely remember the tower block that once stood on the roundabout by Westminster Bridge, now favourably replaced by the towering Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel - the swish, contemporary venue which houses this fantastic restaurant. Located upstairs, Brasserie Joël offers an intimate atmosphere despite its spaciousness, with moody red lighting and glossy black furnishings. Guests can relax and enjoy these surroundings while the attentive staff enhance the sense of comfort and ease.

The food is definitely the main focus here, and decadence à la française the theme. We had tuna tartare and foie gras to start, with a carafe of the white sauvignon. As mentioned, my beef tournedos blew me away, and my partner's just-grilled scallops on a bed of black tagliolini pasta with asparagus and Parmesan cream were of just the same standard. More classic Gallic treats on the dessert menu completed an evening of all-round faultless cuisine.
