Design Restaurants – Your Online Fine Dining Guide

Live Life Beautifully…

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the excitement of everything going on that we forget to talk about ourselves and we presume all our followers know what it is that we do. With that in mind we are taking a quick pause for breath to remind all you lovely gourmets just what your club and guide is all about and how to get the best from us!

Did you know that Design Restaurants is the only dining guide that lists individual restaurant’s Michelin Rating, AA Rating and Sunday Times rating next to their listing with us? In fact the restaurants are also searchable by this rating.


We have also recently added the ‘Vegetarian Recommended‘ label to all of the restaurants that we feel offer a decent choice for our vegetarian diners. We have done this by looking at each menu and only awarding the recommendation if the restaurant offers a good quality and varied selection (without needing 24 hours advance notice).

Our team are passionate about show-casing the very best of fine dining restaurants in an easy to navigate format. Not just city-centric, we cover the well known and the obscure and the en-vogue with the vintage original. Restaurants can also be searched by location, type of cuisine, average price and outside area.

Also on our site you’ll find our events page which lists various occasions we think our members and visitors will enjoy throughout the year. From our home page you can view restaurants with a  ‘Chef’s Table‘ which is becoming increasingly popular with our diners.  We also list more details on the site about the  luxury hotel clubs that we work in conjunction with.
