First Class Restaurant

This was a repeat visit to a Restaurant that could easily be classed as yet another Airport Eatery!! Far from it, it is an exceptional restaurant and given the quality of fare and service, an absolute pleasure. Highly recommended.

Beautiful food but the bill of £96 for one steak and chips and one fish and fries with a bottle of water and a J20 was excessive to say the least....but airport hotels are pricey and there wasn't much else to choose from unless we went in to the terminal but we wanted a special start to our holidays.

Hi lovelythings and thanks for the review, I am pleased you enjoyed our Brasserie experience on the whole. Our two rosette flagship Restaurant normally receives fantastic feedback, maybe you could get in touch directly I am not sure that the cost you mention accurately reflects the value we offer, I maybe able to help. Look forward to hearing from you.... More

I normally eat in Urban Cafe whilst visiting the Sofitel in Gatwick. Though I fancied a change as I've had virtually all there is to have in Urban Cafe - not complaining but sometimes you just fancy something different! So I was greeted by a very pleasant male waiter and he squeezed me in for half an hour as it... More

Hi GregP, Thanks for the feedback, great to hear you enjoyed your La Brasserie experience. I am a big fan of the Jacobs Ladder dish myself, hope to see you again soon. We are launching our new Urban Café menu imminently as well by the way, perhaps next time try both ?! Kind regards, James Berry General Manager More

My expectations of airport hotels aren't particularly high, but the whole experience at the Sofitel exceeded them, and by quite a margin. We booked into La Brasserie and had fantastic food - my wife rated the seafood dish amongst the best she had ever had, and my kid and kidneys (I kid you not) wasn't far behind. Washed down by...

I have eaten at the restaurant a couple of time, lastly in April ahead of our flight the next day. I have to say, I had the Thai green curry and it's without doubt, one of the best I have ever eaten. In fact it was so delicious, I just want to go back and have another one! My husband... More

We stayed & ate here the night before our flight. A perfect way to start our holiday & I guess most people are in a particularly good mood & relaxed & ready for their holidays, which creates a nice atmosphere here. The food was exceptional & the Pinot rose was delicious :) Excellent service & overall a great, tasty experience

The service was excellent and we had a very enthusiastic female waiter. A group of us had a selection of courses and all were well presented and to our satisfaction. The steak was particularly good Wine not cheap but this is 5 star hotel

Arriving the evening before a very early flight and staying 'next door' at the Premier Inn, we decided to splash out in the hope of a nice meal. Very good amuse bouche, excellent saddle of kid (still unusual in the UK, like lamb but even tastier), and good belly pork. Nice cooking, and good wine. Prices a bit higher than... More

Eclectic choices and friendly service. Airport prices but worth it. There is a real emphasis on quality of ingredients.
