Wonderful Wimbledon in South West London is mostly known for its wandering Wombles and annual Tennis Tournament, but did you know they've got a pretty strong dining scene too? We've got 15 of the best Wimbledon restaurants for you to check out right here!

While admittedly SW19 isn't the first (or second, or third...) place that comes to mind when thinking of good gastro spots in the city, the affluent locals and annual influx of tourists has led to a growing selection of great restaurants here, from casual Lebanese cafes to elaborate dining rooms in a Georgian country house.

Check out our selection of the best restaurants in Wimbledon, and give the area a chance next time you're hunting for a dinner destination.

Plus, for suggestions on what to do before and after dinner, have a look at our awesome guide to Wimbledon and then look at the latest available Wimbledon rental properties

Sticks 'n' Sushi

This innovative Danish mini-chain arrived in Wimbledon a few years ago, bringing tasty sushi and yakatori skewers (hence the 'sticks') to the people of SW19. The menu is packed full of handrolls, sashimi, maki and nigiri, while the cavernous, modern interior makes it perfect for big groups of friends looking for a Japanese feast.

Address: 58 Wimbledon Hill Road, Merton, London SW19 7PA

Fox and Grapes

A proper fancy gastropub, the Fox and Grapes on Wimbledon Common is the place to come if you fancy dining on warming dishes such as rarebit and wild mushroom macaroni, Guinness-braised ox cheek and octopus carpaccio by a roaring fire. During Wimbledon Tennis Tournament they do special set brunch and dinner menus too, ideal for a restorative meal both pre and post match!
Address: 9 Camp Road, London SW19 4UN

The Lambourne

The casual, contemporary Lambourne on Wimbledon's Broadway serves a Mediterranean-influenced menu focusing on fresh, well-sourced ingredients, including some good value steaks from Smithfields. Their pre-theatre menu is a steal at £19.95 for three generous courses.
Address: 263 The Broadway, London SW19 1SD

Fancy a decent meaty slab of beef without the extortionate price tag? Head to CAU on Wimbledon High Street, an Argentinian steakhouse serving various cuts of steak, salads, burgers and a solid Sunday Roast. Nice cocktails too!

The Lighthouse

The critically-acclaimed Lighthouse restaurant is a long-standing neighbourhood favourite for their flavoursome menu featuring roast duck breast, steamed hake and tempura plaice. Save space for dessert though - we recommend the blueberry frangipane tart with crème fraiche.

Buenos Aires

Another steak spot for the meat-loving Wimbledon residents, Buenos Aires is an Argentinian steakhouse serving only the finest grass-fed meat in a cool, contemporary setting. While steak is the main event the menu caters for veggies too, with mouthwatering empanadas, tapas dishes and salads.

The White Onion

A refined, fine-dining restaurant without the horribly hefty price tag, the White Onion is one of SW19's best kept secrets. Chef Frédéric Duval brings his expertise to the table with a French-inspired menu including rabbit and ham hock terrine, wagyu beef bavette, and st rawberry and raspberry mess. There's also a private dining room for extra special evenings.

The Terrace Wimbledon

Located in a stunning glass conservatory in central Wimbledon, the Terrace is a fab place to come for evening drinks on the outdoor patio, filling brasserie food from the Modern European menu, and people watching during Wimbledon Tennis Tournament. If you're lucky you might even catch sight of Andy Murray walking past...

Franco Manca

Franco Manca might be a popular chain restaurant with more than a few spots dotted across London, but there's no denying just how delicious its pizzas are. Thankfully for all the Wimbledonites (is that a thing?), there is a restaurant on Wimbledon Park Road where you can enjoy delightful simple but tasty pizzas. 
Address: 277 Wimbledon Park Rd, Wimbledon, London SW19 6NW

Mexican chain Wahaca is known for serving tasty taquitos and fiery fajitas, and this Wimbledon branch is no exception. Come here for a true taste of Mexican street food and a lively atmosphere, and make sure to pop in for breakfast too if you can - the huevos rancheros divorciados are the ultimate way to kick start the day.
Address: Victoria Crescent, 35 The Broadway, Wimbledon, London SW19 1QD

Maison St Cassien

Diners are in for a treat at this Mediterranean-Lebanese cafe on Wimbledon High Street, which has managed to remain a hidden local gem due to the efforts of baklava-obsessed residents. They specialise in casual, sharing food such as homemade hummus, feta salads, mezze platters and moussaka, and make sure to try the aforementioned baklava - it's a clear contender for the best in London.
Address: 71 High Street, London SW19 5EE

San Lorenzo Fuoriporta
