007 Travelers had a very special day here in Rules. Pirita and Mika got engaged in the very same table where M (Ralph Fiennes), Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) met in “SPECTRE” (2015). It was also the same day when James Bond was born according to John Pearson‘s “James Bond, the Authorized Biography of 007” (1973). The date was 11th of November.

Rules is a grand restaurant where the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. For our special day Pirita ordered Fillet of Salmon and Mika’s choice was Breast of Pheasant with creamed lentils, bacon & apples. For red wine we chose Chianti.

White chocolate brulees were our choice for desserts.


Rules is a very beautiful old restaurant and throughout its long history the tables of Rules have been crowded with writers, artists, lawyers, journalists and actors. As well as being frequented by great literary talents.
