Swiss Restaurant in London
Heritage is an amazing Swiss Restaurant in London, Soho serving up Swiss-inspired delights in a luxury setting with impeccable service from their amazing staff. The menu is compact, a sure sign that they are more about quality not quantity. Whilst the menu isn’t overloaded, they have packed in a variety of different dishes and flavours.
We started our meal with a couple of cocktails. We had the Heritage Negroni: London No1 Gin stirred with their house blend of sweet vermouths, Campari and RinQuinQuin á la Pêche apéritif (£14). It was a nice touch served with a stamped block of ice. We also had the London No. 1 (£12), which was a super fresh gin based cocktail complete with thyme and a grapefruit peel.
Half of the menu is made up of sharing plates so naturally we sampled a few before our main course of fondue! We ordered:
- Eau de Vie Cured Oyster: with oyster cream, cucumber, pink peppercorn and picked radish (£5 each)
- Smoked Beef Tartare: Prepared at the table, with traditional garnishes and potato hay (£15)
- Raclette with charred Heritage tomato, sourdough croutons, sherry vinegar dressing and black garlic aioli (£14)
- Rosti with maple glazed Swaledale pork belly, black truffle and Tomette de Brebis (£14)
We were blown away by all the dishes, each one offering something different to the palette.
The oysters were absolutely lovely, so creamy and not half as salty as normal. We loved the colour of the pink peppercorns, radishes and cucumber, and they all added to the delicious flavour that accompanied this creamy oyster.
The maple glazed pork belly rosti was fantastic and the potato went really well with the earthy black truffle and the super cheesy Tomette de Brebis.
The Raclette was amazing and is certainly a dish for cheese lovers. It was great watching the waiter ooze the hot and creamy cheese over the sourdough croutons. These gave the dish a light crunch and were accompanied well by the fresh Heritage yellow and red tomatoes.
The most incredible dish was the smoked beef tartare. We loved the theatrical element of the waiter mixing all the ingredients on the table. The dish was creamy and delicate and very succulent. It was topped with a runny egg yolk and the super thin fries gave it that added texture to make a completely wonderful dish.
Shared Swiss Fondue
We then moved on to sharing fondue (minimum 2 people)! Heritage offers three different options to dip into the fondue There are two vegetarian options where you have items such as artisan breads, potatoes, pickles, mini potatoes, carrot, courgettes and radishes and one meat option.
We opted for the latter (£18pp) where you receive 6 pieces of beautiful succulent beef fillet, 6 pieces of house made sausage, 6 pieces of grilled pork belly and a selection of pickles. The cheese was outstanding, served in a cute rose gold fondue melting pot. It was thick and creamy and all the different flavours of the meat worked really well. Our favourite was the beef fillet which was so succulent.
In true fondue style, we had to go for the chocolate fondue! This was accompanied with a selection of chocolate brownie pieces, banana, strawberries, and mini marshmallows. The chocolate was hot and runny and perfect for dipping. We loved the variety of sweet treats to dip, especially the brownie pieces and the mini marshmallows.
Heritage is an amazing Swiss restaurant in London and really is a cut above the rest. Its stylish interior and extremely professional and kind staff make this a super fine dining experience without the extortionate prices. They also offer a set menu daily from 12-2.30 and 5-6: 2 courses for £24 and 3 courses for £29.
The quality of each dish was amazing and so much thought had gone into the presentation and flavour. There is an incredible bar in the middle of this restaurant, so even if you just fancy one of their delightful cocktails, come and sip a cocktail at the bar. However, once you see the food being served, you’ll be asking if there is a table!
