Meet your Google Places Neighbor: Marc Van-De-Cappelle

Editor’s Note: Now and then we’ll spotlight one of our amazing Google Places reviewers. Both so you guys can start to get to know one another and so we can pull together and share our favourite local places. Today, we introduce you to Marc Van-De-Cappelle from London.

Apart from four years spent studying in Plymouth, our latest Google Places neighbour Marc has lived in London all his life. So of course we had to ask this life-long Londoner (who is also a fan of boxing, pilates and Gordon Ramsay) his tips for enjoying the city.

What’s your favourite thing about reviewing on Google Places?
I love that it’s the modern version of word of mouth. How else can you find out about the good places to eat?

What’s your guilty pleasure?
Indulging my girlfriend too much.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
To be able to control time, space, and matter.


And what five places should every Londoner visit?

Paramount – This bar is at the top of the Centre Point building and recently opened to the public.  Best view of London, period.

Dim T – Ticks all the boxes! Great view of Tower Bridge at night, delicious food and good service.

Willie Gunn – Love the British food at this south London pub.

Gaucho Richmond – The quality of food and service here makes a visit to this restaurant perfect for a treat.

The Leather Bottle – Good roast lunch, friendly staff and a pleasant place to be on a Sunday.
