We ate at the bar for a smart late lunch. We ordered hamburger, they are famous for this plate, and we can only say delicius. Very Nice restaurant well haunted. I can tip the rose wine in the big bottle which they take in orizontal position. Great wine cellar well stocked.I suggest this restaurant for dinner or lunch

We had visited Cafe Boulud on our honeymoon in New York and were keen to see whether London could impress us as much. Loved it! We ate Escargot and the French onion soup (my husband said it was the best he'd ever had) and I enjoyed my snails! Then we had as good a main course, husband had fruit de... More

With cold meats and breads, cheese and burgers and charcuterie as the standard fayre you'd be forgiven for thinking that you were on the continent and that is the intention. It is a very welcome addition to the Maderin Oriental and is executed flawlessly. Unpretentious and very welcoming and causal. Excellent house made cured meats.

We were very tired after a trip to Hampton Court Palace so we were looking forward to a nice casual dinner which, fortunately, was our experience that night. Upon arriving at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel I was very impressed with the elegance of the hotel, and paused to look around. We reached Bar Boloud by walking downstairs. Upon entering, we... More

Very good food in a more informal type setting which probably appeals if in the mood. Food quality on par with all the very good restaurants around, also suited for a pop in drink,

I'm not sure what I expected but I was sadly disappointed by this restaurant. I had read all the hype but Bar Bouloud did not live up to it. The food was only ok, and the waiter did nothing to hide the fact that he wanted to get us out as soon as possible. I don't like restaurants that "turn... More

I went here twice during my recent stay in London. Once for Aperatifs and then once post brunch for continuing entertainment. Both times the visit was great! They do different cocktails, innovate as they go, fast friendly service. The bar men, especially Andre, are very congenial and love to entertain and show if in a good way. They deliver on... More

Great location, easy to get a table, nicely prepared French brasserie food (if a bit unimaginative - but I'm guessing the clientele don't want imaginative- if they did, they'd be upstairs at Heston's place), so lots going for it, and we;ve been back a few times when we need a last minute table, but for, me, lacking a certain sparkle...

I went here with a friend having heard good things about the burgers. We arrived and had a drink at the bar first. The interior of the restaurant is nicely designed, and the front of house staff were professional and efficient. We had a nice drink and were looking forward to the much anticipated main event. What a disappointment. I... More
