For something a little bit special but not "blow your bank balance" then 
can I heartily reccomend Artubus on Frith Street.

The various reviews linked to from here

say it all -

"This is a radically spanking, thoroughly massive piece of 
restaurant-making. The kind of place that New York or Paris would kill 
to have. You can't eat better than this."

"here's nothing déclassé about Arbutus, which leaps straight into my 
top 10 London restaurants to show off to visiting friends. Charming, 
flavourful, imaginative, fags- and muzak-free and with that 
revolutionary wine policy, it breathes the atmosphere of a foodie shrine 
that knows exactly what it's doing."

"The best thing, however, is Arbutus's sense of time and place. When you 
eat here, you simply could not be anywhere else in the world, at any 
other time, than in England in late spring or early summer. And how 
nice, that you actually get to pay less for that privilege, rather than 

They even have a set early-evening 3 course menu for 18 quid if you're 
on a budget.
