Great service, great food and atmosphere

Great way to top up before flying away. We were looking for seats and fell on to this lovely lively bistro style bar/café in T3. Attentive friendly staff soon had a drink on the table followed by some light snacks all sensibly priced. The room is nicely decorated with old vintage aeroplane... read more

At 6pm Sunday afternoon I was offered any table I wanted. The all day Anglais breakfast with a pint of London Pride was ordered. Service was quick and pleasant. Food was good quality and price was good value. When I left at 6.45 nearly every table was taken. And for good cause, I will use this restaurant again and probably... More

This is as good as any airport lounge. Attentive service, lots of room, good food, good choice, reasonably priced, service 10/10. Atmosphere very sophisticated unlike the noisy screaming awful places normally found at the airport. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Vegetarian scrambled eggs was very nice full plate, Tartine chevre very good as well. Nice place to sit while you wait for your (transfer) flight. You can charge phone or laptop at table; bring international plugs and splitters. Funny that, while landed in London, the whole menu is in French

We were leaving from terminal 3 but didn't have time for a meal before we arrived at Heathrow after dropping off the hire car etc, as far as I could see there is no eating facilities whatsoever on landside at Terminal 3 which is poor planning when quite often you are there for a hour or so before you can...

We all ordered brunch, a variety of dishes with zero issues or complaints, my Eggs Florentine were superb. Drinks (champagne and Bloody Marys) excellent. Will definitely be returning. Kudos to the staff for making it a great... More

As usual there was a couple of hours to wait for a flight and no better place to spend it than here. Very pleasant welcome and good service for a fresh chicken Caesar and salmon/ poached ages muffin. Washed down with a good French Merlot but why oh why was there no Gamay!

Stopped here for breakfast while waiting for our flight. Had the full English breakfast and it's the best I've had at any airport. Food was reasonably priced, of a high standard ie. delicious and our waitress Anita looked after us totally. Highly recommend.

Pre-flight pit stop and my duck confit was ok. Not bad not brilliant but hit the spot however the pint of London Pride was spot on at less money than my local!
