Our History

The Caprice group encompasses London’s favourite restaurants, from some of the oldest and most classic establishments in London to its most exciting and innovative new openings.


Le Caprice’s unique brand of urbanity and elegance dates back to 1947. Scott’s can trace its origins to an oyster warehouse of 1851, long before it moved to its current home where  Ian Fleming discovered the dry Martini, shaken, not stirred. Alongside these sit iconic restaurants including Daphne’s, where authentic Italian regional cuisine is served in an atmosphere of romance and sophistication, and J Sheekey – founded in 1896 – where theatre-goers enjoy seafood dishes which recipes date back decades.


There is, of course, a lot more to the Caprice group than history. Covering a variety of atmospheres and clienteles, this restaurant group ranges far and wide through the cuisines of the world – traditional and modern British, Italian, French and Asian included – in some of the best restaurants London has to offer. Far from resting on its laurels, the Caprice group is always looking for new ways to innovate and entertain. Since Richard Caring took over as Chairman in 2005, there have been acclaimed ventures in 34 Mayfair, Sexy Fish – Mayfair’s iconic late-night restaurant, Bacchanalia, an indulgent and transportive feast for the senses in addition to international ventures such as Sexy Fish Miami and Nōema Mykonos.


Although the restaurants within the Caprice Holdings group are truly unique from one another different, they each share a devotion to quality and experience, demonstrated in the sourcing, seasonality, preparation and presentation of their food and drink, in the imagination of their design and in the warmth and skill of their service.
