Just Great

We went to Bar Boulud as a couple on a thursday evening. We were taking quickly to our table and the staff was very thoughtful during the whole service. The atmosphere was nice even if the table are ligned up pretty close to each other, which limits the privacy. The food was excellent. We had a... read more

Nothing to write home about. Very average. Burger overcooked and burnt. Sausage platter was not exceptional. Onion was watery

We returned up on a Sunday & all they has was a buffet. Because we were 2 adults & 3 young (2 strollers) children, it's a hassle to move about after being seated. Theres a brunch buffet & you select 1 main course. The buffet items were very light. Salads, small selection of cheeses & a soup. People used to... More

I had lunch in his Bar Restaurant of the Luxury Mandarin Oriental hotel, the atmosphere is absolutely informal, I had cod fish with boiled vegetables accompanied by glasses of sparkling Franciacorta wine, service was very attentive and efficient I would for sure return and try more dishes including the hamburger which I see is much positively reviewed in here

Lovely place with very friendly and helpful staff. Had a couple of last minute drinks here and some food (pitta a spicy hummus was great) last week and really enjoyed it. Food was all good and service was quick, polite and friendly. Place is huge.

Very nice experience. Service was top of the line and the waiters were very attentive and friendly. On the other hand, the food was full of flavour and they offer a wide range of cocktails. The weird thing is that there wasn't any sort of music played at all, which I find a bit unusual in such restaurants. Will go... More

VENUE: Partner and I were staying at the Mandarin Oriental hotel; as guests, we barely saw anything of Bar Boulud as we were seated near the restaurant's hotel entrance. The place was buzzing and very nice, interiors clean and good-smelling. What I could see of the interior was warmly lit in neutral colors. DINING: Starters - olives were a lovely... More

Fabulous food cooked to perfection with great service. Started with the best salad lyonnaise - perfectly cooked livers, bacon and soft egg, followed by a tasting of two sausages and some gougeres. All this for £30 - insane bargain for amazing experience!

Bar Boulud doesn't fail to exceed expectations in each visit. Wonderful cuisine, excellent menu, friendly yet professional staff. Those who believe it is a glorified pub haven't tasted the menu yet. Especially the burgers are absolutely brilliant: homemade brioche buns, lamb patties, tasty sauces, well chosen trimmings. Great for all year-round.

I have eaten many times in Bar Boulud and have always found that it has exactly what I want, whether it is oysters, escargots, charcuterie or amazing cheeses. This time was no exception. My son and shared some delicious calamari, then each had a "piggie" burger, then shared an exquisite apple tart. All accompanied by some delicious local cider. Again,... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
