Great food and a nice way to relax prior to a flight from Gatwick

We had dinner here the night before a long haul flight from Gatwick Airport while staying at the Sofitel (see separate review). It's a little pricey but we got a 25% discount by using our Gourmet Society card. The food was delicious and there was a good range of wine. The service was very warm and... read more

Stayed here as a stopover and eat in this restaurant. Food was average but a bit pricey. Can be very busy and not a great atmosphere in the place. Staff okay

The waiter serving us seems rushed off his feet and harassed, it looked like due to the high volume of customers he was ran ragged.

My family and I slept at the Sofitel for a quick night ready to leave London. As I drearily walked into the Sofitel after watching the first half of the 7-1 thrashing of Brazil against Germany. I was amazed of how the Sofitel covered the rest of the match for me as I came in to the hotel late to... More

Our dinner was nice, well presented and decent value. What a shame therefore that having booked our table at reception whilst checking in, and seen it phoned through, that on arriving for dinner our booking did not exist. The host seemed to imply it could not be the hotel fault and eventually we were seated with rather poor grace. It... More

Luckily I had made a reservation as customers who didn't experienced very slow service. The crayfish starter was tasteless, the salmon was good, dessert was also tasteless. It is not a patch on the T-5 Sofitel equivalent.

I stayed in the Sofitel at Gatwick the night before my flight and was joined by my daughter and grandson, who live nearby, for dinner. We found the menu offered a good choice of dishes suiting all tastes accompanied by a good wine list. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and just have to add the young lady who looked... More

We regularly stay at the Sofitel before flying from Gatwick and have therefore eaten in the La Brasserie on quite a few occasions. This restaurant never disappoints, very good food with a wide ranging menu, from straightforward dishes such as fish and chips to more contemporary fare expected in a restaurant within a four star hotel. Good service and pleasant... More
