Daily Telegraph enjoyed the tapas-style offerings from ex-Nobu chef Tomonari Chiba at Japanese restaurant Dinings, London W1.
"The chef is uncompromising in his use of quality ingredients (truffle, bass, lobster, oyster, crab, duck)," he said, as he tucks into a wide selection of dishes.
In Glasgow, the Independent's Tracey MacLeod visited Crabshakk and found that a pleasingly mixed clientele, crisp but friendly service, and decent prices make the seafood restaurant a winning operation.
"Crab cakes, generously stuffed with white crabmeat spiked with chilli and parsley" and "seared scallops, served sizzling on the skillet with a herb-scented butter" were just two of the dishes she enjoys.
Other reviewers are not so fortunate in their choice of restaurant. Giles Coren, writing in The Times, described Babbo in London W1 as "one of the new breed of Italian restaurants in Mayfair (Cipriani set the trend, Dolada followed most recently) that serve competent food at ridiculous prices and make you feel ill to the bottom of your mortal soul."
And, in Manchester, Observer food critic Jay Rayner found that Glamorous, a Chinese restaurant with a seating capacity of 600 set in a business centre adjacent to a multi-storey car park was anything but glamorous.
While he admitted the experience at times was entertaining, the food itself was either odd or weird.
