Many people love to eat where the atmosphere of the restaurant is lively and active and people (and the staff) sound like they are happy and enjoying themselves. Italian restaurants in particular are noted for the lively ambience of their restaurants. If you enjoy this style of lively dining atmosphere then you will pleased to see that in this section of the Gourmet Guide website we have included a list of all the best 'lively restaurants' that have a fun atmosphere and lively energy in London.  

Best Lively Restaurants in London

The restaurants on this page are all restaurants that the Gourmet Guide team can recommend for being: 'Lively Restaurants'. These lively restaurants are generally some of the very best restaurants in the UK where the staff and other diners all enjoy a fun and lively atmosphere. The list includes a range of styles and food types but it is fair to say that many Italian restaurants and Greek restaurants fall into the 'lively restaurant' category. Many of these restaurants may have an informal and slightly noisier ambience than most restaurants and the serving staff may be less formal than the more traditional and classic restaurants but the food quality and customer service will all be of a high standard that meets the 'best UK restaurant' standards of the Gourmet Guide team. If you enjoy eating great quality food in a warm, lively and fun atmosphere then you will love these Gourmet Guide: Lively Restaurants and we are sure you will have a quality dining experience in a fun, lively and interesting atmosphere, so all you need to do is select your preferred 'lively restaurant' and make a booking! Please help us to achieve our ambition of making the Gourmet Guide website the most comprehensive and easy to use database of all the best restaurants in the UK by remembering to use the 'Suggest a Restaurant' feature (that appears in both the top and footer menus of the website) to let us know about any other great quality 'lively restaurants' that we may have over-looked. If possible, please try to mention that the restaurant is a great 'lively restaurant' in your message and we will check it out and add it to our database. Many thanks.
