Description: 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.

This restaurant is everything you would expect from a restaurant of this standard. Perfect food, perfect service and perfect ambiance. I did have a few issues with the booking, ensure you call rather than using their online tool on the day the booking opens. We had the set lunch menu which is fantastic value. The liver I had for my... More

My wife booked a table for my 60th birthday and the experience beat all my expectations . The service was outstanding and although packed out, you were given the impression that you were the only customer in the establishment. We decided to go A la carte and for sweet I chose a taster dish which allowed me to devour samples... More

I took my wife to Le Gavroche for our anniversary as we had wanted to visit for a long time. We were really impressed with the restaurant and the staff were absolutely flawless with their attentiveness and service. My wife and I both chose the menu exceptionnel (taster menu) with the wine match to each course. Every single dish was... More

This was our first visit to Le Gavroche, a special lunch to celebrate my wife's birthday. Le Gavroche was welcoming and without much of the stuffiness and pretentiousness that I have experienced in other supposedly “high class” restaurants. In short I would describe our visit as a great experience, with wonderful food, and faultless service. There were also a couple... More

Everything is perfect - food, service, wine list, ambience, dress code and location. The food is something... The only 2 things to mention - 1) quiet music could be played 2) impossible to book a table (tried 4 times) always fully booked. If you get one, definitely give a try. Paid around 300 pounds for dinner of two. Not from... More

We haven’t been to La Gavroche for a very long time and really looking forward to the evening. The staff and service are all excellent, the execution of the food and presentation very good, but then what would you expect from this establishment? Michel came to the table - asking is everything was OK only looking for praise but when... More

We have just had our daughters 40th birthday lunch here on the 3 course package. It was just superb and the whole occasion was a total joy. We eat here regularly and we have to say that the one thing which impresses us most is "Total Consistency". We have never in the past 3 years had anything other than great... More

Wonderful experience at Le Gavroche. Perfect food served by attentive staff. Magical . Each dish was special and expertly made. Luxury. The place to go at least once in your lifetime if you love good food. Beautiful intimate dining room. We met Michel Roux which was a treat!

A visit to this restaurant is all about the end to end experience and not just the meal itself. Sadly too many elements of the service were below par for this to be rated a great experience. Given the expectations we had when booking, we were left feeling disappointed. The food was excellent - very, very good. Thank you. However:... More
