Eat, Drink and Be Cosy
November nights are perfect for long catch-ups with friends; chatting, munching and drinking into the late hours. Alongside it’s brilliant fashion, beauty and culture offerings, the Square has a number of fantastic restaurants to suit every taste.
Soak up the buzz of the late-night shoppers sat on the terrace at Polpo under the heaters and wrapped in one of their cosy wool blankets. Warm up with sharing plates of Venetian inspired indulgence; crab and chilli linguine; classic beef and pork meatballs; fritto misto and our favourite, the Nutella pizette.

For some of Chelsea’s best Italian dishes, head next door to Manicomio; with an elegant restaurant or more casual cafe adjacent to each other; the former if you’re after something a little more grown-up, and the latter with a fantastic Happy Hour.

New kid on the block, Vardo is a hot spot for a quick drink at the bar or a buzzy dinner with pals. Sharing plates (on the larger side) are delicious and full of flavour. We recommend the ‘charred aubergine, saffron buttermilk dressing and grilled turkish chilli’, ‘baharat rubbed lamb cutlets with green harissa and tahini’ whilst sipping on the Arabian Peninsula cocktail – three to four dishes a person should be enough, but save room for the soft serve. Trust us.
