The first UK restaurant to be awarded one, two, and then three Michelin stars, Le Gavroche remains a class apart. Since opening in 1967, this Mayfair bastion of French cuisine has been very much a family affair, and chef-patron Michel Roux Jr continues the tradition today. The elegance of the menu and the ambience is impeccably tailored, while the discreet service has won its own plaudits.

Amazing Food!

There's no doubt about it, the food was out of this world. I'd recommend it to anyone. Is it really necessary though to insist that diners wear a blazer throughout? It made us feel hot and uncomfortable for the entirety of our meal and I wonder how many other customers would actually take offence... read more

I booked a table for my husband and I exactly three months prior to our visit (it does get booked up really quickly, – obviously). We booked for lunch and had the set menu. I'm not going to go into detail about the experience, as it will spoilt the surprise, but it was amazing from start to finish – especially... More

We had a fantastic experience at Le Gavroche. We went for the tasting menu with the wine flight. Quality of food and service both excellent.

We were so happy that our high expectations were met, could not complain about a single thing and that is saying something for us (see our other reviews). We were given a very cosy corner table where we could sit back and enjoy the ambience. The taster menu was just right, managed all courses except coffee. We went on a... More

We had the most fabulous food and exceptional service when we visited Le Gavroche this week - it was a great experience. Apart from the delicious food and perfectly complemented wine, the highlight of our evening was meeting Michel Roux ! What a lovely man. I am going to save up and go again with the hope of meeting Monica.

Just as the reviews say and just as I've heard all the great comments about this fan restaurant it lives to my full expectations. A Michelin Star dining. With a very good choice on the menu and wine list. Will return again here soon.

We have been at Le Gavroche for many years now, it has always been excellent. The food, the service, the beverage selection and the wonderful ambiance. Not many fine dining restaurants manage to deliver so much on all levels Will be back for more soon

Went with 2 other couples for our annual dining club experience. This was a place we'd always wanted to go and we certainly weren't disappointed. It lived upto our expectations in every way. The tasting menu was sublime as were the wines to accompany. Service was, as you'd expect fantastic. Couldn't fault a single thing, all in all superb.

As other reviews have said the food at Le Gavroche is beyond compare and one of the outstanding restaurants in the whole of Europe. We visited on a Monday evening celebrating my wife's unmentionable birthday. The experience was fabulous and unexpectedly Michel Roux came out into the restaurant and came round to all the tables and was genuinely interested in... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
