Heliot Steakhouse in the Hippodrome, Leicester Square

Heliot Steakhouse in the Hippodrome Casino at Leicester Square is remarkable, in that the bar and restaurant tables are on a balcony that overlooks the main gaming floor. So diners tuck into their steaks while looking down on the action at casino and card tables below.

I ordered a small 7oz rump steak that came exactly as I ordered, medium rare. I declined the various sauces offered and enjoyed it with Dijon mustard instead. My companions reported that their dishes were also nicely done. This is good value, well worth a visit.
