Anyone following a special diet knows how hard it can be to find a healthy yet inspiring restaurant, for both working lunches with clients and weekend get-togethers with friends. So…whether you are trying to trim-up for summer or fed-up with the latest fad diet, here are some of
Q People’s tried and tested recommendations of London’s finest low-calorie eateries.

Bread Street Kitchen, One New Change, 10 Bread St, London EC4M 9AB

Despite the name, Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen is a great choice for healthy eating. Ramsay has hopped on the raw food band wagon producing dishes such as; salmon ceviche, carpaccio of octopus and roasted lobster with ginger, chilli and garlic. Based in the heart of the city, it is open for breakfast, meetings and after work drinks/dinners.

Kids go free on the weekends, details can be found here:

Cassis Bistro, 232-236 Brompton Road, London SW3 2BB
Cassis Bistro has enlisted the help of Matt Roberts, personal trainer to high profile celebrities such as Tom Ford and Naomi Campbell to help develop a calorie-controlled menu. Main courses are always under 400 calories and a combination of two courses never exceeds more than 650 calories. Each meal contains slow-release energy food and ‘good’ fats.

If it is your 5-a-day you’re after then Yalla Yalla is the place for you. Based in Soho, it offers meals such as; halloumi salad, stuffed vine leaves and slow cooked vegetables topped with yoghurt and roasted pine nuts.
