We enjoyed traditional favorites including Dover Sole, Fried Whitebait, Smoked Salmon, at this 18th century elegant restaurant on Jermyn Street in Mayfair. Service and food were all great. A bit pricey, but worth the experience.

It's a great restaurant. Best smoked salmon in London. Our meals are always white - fish, potatoes - really delicious. And the crowd is always fun to look at - hodgepodge of family lunches, business meetings. Always fun and somewhat eclectic. Highly recommend!

You will be fine dressed as you describe. Wiltons isn't 'snobby', just likes everything to be elegant. You will have a memorable experience.

Definitely a jacket - probably not a tie but it is very smart and you might feel underdressed in certain clothes. Definitely not shorts and sandles place!!!!
