Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

With a name like Le Monde, perhaps you could be forgiven for feeling like you could be almost anywhere in the world in this bar/restaurant – while the high ceilings of George Street and Scottish ingredients on the menu are all present and correct, the marble-effect bar and smart waiters echo hotels everywhere. Video screens show dancers in Shanghai, the downstairs night club, while DJs also play in the Sky Bar on a Friday and Saturday night. Cocktails are the drink du jour for the dressed-up crowd, with 35 classic, signature and specialty mixed drinks as well as seven different champagnes. The menu mainly keeps it classic: fish and chips, mac and cheese, burgers and steaks, with a range of small plates like haggis spring roll and cayenne pepper squid, which might be better for fitting into your best clobber before hitting the dance floor.
