Description: Bibendum, the flagship of the Conran gastro empire is housed in the historic Michelin building on groovy Brompton Cross. As you might expect, it delivers topnotch French food with impeccable service in a spacious chic setting. In fact, the food is so delicious that one is in danger of leaving the premises feeling like the Michelin man himself. Fabulous wine list to complement the menu and an ideal location to indulge in a little post lunch shopping on the cross or down Walton Street. With a set menu for lunch at £28.50 you can enjoy a ‘grande bouffe’ without a grand bill.

“Absolute classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Eaten downstairs in the Oyster bar several times and promised ourselves lunch upstairs for several years but never really had the time. Well worth the wait. Fabulous, light, iconic dinng room. Superb service, friendly not stuffy, attentive not over bearing. Very efficient for diners needing to move but no pressure to rush. Every course was superb. Understated, exceptionally well seasoned with, as you would expect, impeccable sauces.m this will now become a regular for us.

“South Ken stalwart still has it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Been going here for years for Sunday lunch & it's still one of the most enjoyable places to eat in London. 3 courses at £32.50 is great value but the eating experience is enhanced by the lightness of the room & very good service. Food can vary but always a joy to eat here.

“Quality well presented food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Quality dining in a quiet environment. Given the location, it avoids being too smart and one can feel comfortable dressed casually eating good - seafood and fish were my favourites.

“A classic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

We have been going here for a long time and despite different chefs its always very good. The room itself is a monument to architectural excellence. The food light and good portions. Often have a special lunch menu. Downstairs is a cafe which is also very good, serving just cold food.

We have been to this restaurant many, many times over the last 10 years.
