UK: London is most expensive city in the world for dining out

London is now the most expensive place to eat out in the world with the average price of a three course meal with one glass of wine, coming in at 39.09, up 2.9% on last year, according to the recently published Zagat guide.

More costly than both Paris (35.37) and Tokyo (35.10), the survey also found that among the 20 priciest restaurants in London, where the average meal costs 87.90, prices had increased by 6.1% on last year.

The most expensive restaurant featured in the guide is Gordon Ramsay's three Michelin star holder, 68 Royal Hospital Road. Here the average diner can expend to spend 107. It was also voted second favourite of all London restaurants by Zagat's surveyors, beaten only by Chez Bruce in Wandsworth, where the average meal price is 57.

Zagat's guide takes the view of 5,336 diners, who visited 1,119 London establishments, and ate between them 705,000 meals.
