This is officially the most beautiful restaurant in the world – and it’s in London

While there are some occasions in life that call for a no-frills dining experience (a raging hangover, for example, is always best remedied in a greasy spoon café), sometimes we just want to put on some lipstick and head out for dinner at a truly swoon-worthy restaurant.

If you’re the same, it’s time to celebrate. The winners of the international Restaurant & Bar Design Awards were recently announced – and the prize for the most beautiful restaurant in the world went to an eatery in central London.

German Gymnasium, a European-inspired restaurant in King’s Cross, was voted the Best Overall Restaurant in the Awards, which were set up to recognise stunning design in food and drink spaces around the world.

A raft of other UK restaurants and bars also bagged awards for their beautiful interiors – including, somewhat unexpectedly, two branches of Nando’s. 

See what makes them beautiful in the photos below. And start making your reservations now…
