we have such low expectations of airport associated dining that this came as a very welcome surprise! V good service, smart and buzzing, the set menu was good value ( the venison was superb). Wines way over priced, but otherwise a great experience. Tip - it's really busy and that's even early evening. Essential to book - as it is... More

I loved my top-notch steak (although my grey triple cooked chips could have been more golden)and quite delicious mushroom soup. The celeriac amouse bouche was a delight. Service was ultra-charming and pretty efficient even though the place was unexpectedly full. The rhubarb-based pudding was ordinary. £11 for a glass of rioja was too much and I ended up spending nearly... More

Wonderful meal with my hubby after a very stressful few days; I had a delicious cheese souffle, he had a prawn & crab starter. Mains he had kid (amazing) & I had ribeye which had a super taste but was a little chewier than I would have liked. Sides of mash/chips/haricots verts/mixed mushrooms completed the meal. Lovely bottle of red... More

I ordered the fish and chips. They were wonderful!!!! Nice tasting batter, not heavy at all. The chips were large and cooked to perfection! When I find myself in Gatwick airport again I will seek this restaurant.

A must if your staying at the hotel and enjoy good food. Very friendly staff and it was easy to get a table. Food was cooked exactly how we asked for it. They say you get what you pay for this is not a cheap restaurant but worth it.

This great airport hotel has very much a captive audience so it's a shame their flagship restaurant does not cater for more modest budgets. The quality of the dishes and the less than polished service do not justify the high prices.

We had paid for an all inclusive Dinner Bed & Breakfast package, but the meal allowance was very small and had to add to it considerably. The food was good but expensive.

You generally expect restaurants that are in these types of hotel not to make too much of an effort. After all, 99% of visitors, I assume, are here for one night only and return once a year if that. So if the restaurant is a bit off, well, it doesn’t matter, as the place is so convenient. Well that’s NOT... More

If you want small portions at a high price then this is the place for you! All very well presented in a nice clean well laid out and stylish setting, with polite and friendly staff. The taste of the food is good (certainly above average but not amazing), but the portions to price are why i only rate this 3... More

The Sofitel Hotel is great but the La Brasseria restaurant is a rip off. Extremely small portions. Had to laugh at the wife's starter. Hardly worth putting on a plate. No wonder the waiter asked: "Is that all" when placing.
