Had most enjoyable meal. Very well looked after by Margo. Hake was cooked to perfection and service spot on. Good value for money in an airport hotel. What lets it down is the dull and boring decor, no attempt seems to have been made to brighten the place up which would enhance the experience.

We both had starters I had smoked venison and partner had rock pool we both enjoyed the experience small but very tasty. I then had a 6oz fillet steak and my partner beef ribs. Both were tasty and tender and I had 3 x cooked frites. Service was good and the Sauvignon blanc was very acceptable. We finished with petit... More

This restaurant is very underrated considering the amazing quality of the food. It is on the expensive side but it's worth it as a pre-holiday treat. Compliments to Natalia our waitress who was very friendly and helpful and recommended us a great white wine to go with our meal that we loved so much, we now drink it at home.... More

Have stayed in The Sofitel before and rate the hotel quite highly but have not eaten in The Brasserie before which is one of several eateries on site. We had not booked in advance (probably a good idea to do so) but managed to get a table at 8 45 pm. Lovely menu and good wine list with a set... More

Despite the Restuarant being very busy and having to wait for a table I found the food and service very good for what is essentially an airport hotel. They offer fine food at good prices and cook it to perfection. The seafood risotto was superb. Good wine list which won't break the bank. It is often difficult to know when... More

What a joy, more than expected from a hotel restaurant. Food was exquisite and not stupidly over priced. The Quail starter was to die for. The accompaniments outshone the main part of the dish which made for a terrific taste experience. As for the service Margo was brilliant very attentive and very good at her job. Would highly recommend both... More

Busy but the food is very good so worth a visit..... The menu has a good choice and the price point is not too expensive. It's worth booking your time as soon as you arrive at the Hotel or you may have a long wait....

Stayed in the hotel between flights and had dinner here. The service was faultless and the food was divine. The menu was full of things I wanted to eat so the hardest part was to actually decide what to order. The manager came to our table and we ended up having a lovely chat which was a breeze of fresh...

Each time we fly from Gatwick any time before midday we stay at The Sofitel because an important and much looked forward to precursor to our holiday experience is to eat at The Brasserie, which quite simply is one of the best dinning experiences we have ever encountered in a long history of culinary exploration worldwide.
