Morito – Exmouth Market
This is one of our favourite tapas bars in London and definitely worth a visit. Reserved for walk-ins only, this is one of the best no booking restaurants in London
Specialising in Chops and only chops, this is a Soho favourite.
Order the “all-in” that gives you a mix of lamb, pork and beef chops served on a char grilled flat bread that soaks up all the juices – beautiful!
Opera Tavern – Covent Garden
The most recent restaurant from the team behind Salt Yard and Dehesa, Opera Tavern in Covent Garden saves its downstairs tables and counter seats for walk-ins.
Located in a renovated pub, the Spanish restaurant and tapas bar retains some of the building’s original features, and the exposed bricks and low lighting create a relaxed, intimate feel.

Burger & Lobster – Mayfair, Soho and Clerkenwell
From the people behind the Goodman steak restaurants, Burger & Lobster serves, you guessed it, burgers and lobsters, each priced at £20.
The original site in Mayfair has recently been joined by a sibling on Dean Street in Soho with a new site in Clerkenwell on St John Street due later this year, all designed by designLSM.
Brasserie Zedel – Piccadilly Circus
While the room is grand and impressive (designed by David Collins Studio), the food is more casual and very reasonably priced – just as a brasserie should be.
The dining room is vast and has over 200 covers, half of which are reserved for walk-ins. The size of the room makes it one of London’s most accessible no bookings restaurants.
