“Excellent food but it needs some attention.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

I really can't fault the food - it was excellent but rather expensive. A couple of hitches however: our order was taken after 20 minutes, no food after another 40 minutes. The order had got lost between our table and the kitchen (20 yards away). When the problem was recognised by the manager, I would have thought that the re-ordered food would have been fast-tracked through the kitchen - but no, another long delay ensued. Finally my wife and I got our meals, which were fine. The bill came with various items from the bar attached - drinks that we had not had. All in all, rather unprofessional for such a hotel restaurant!

“Well worth trying”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Airport hotels are not always the best place to eat, but this undoubtedly was. Service was good and the choice and service was really good. The food was well prepared and attractively serviced.

“Good airport hotel meal - expectedly expensiv”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We had a very nice meal here, in the packed brasserie. The choice was quite limited but the food we had was superb - perfectly cooked and served by a very polite team of staff. Yes it was ridiculously expensive but it was a very relaxing meal and much better than the alternatives.

“Excellent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I enjoyed another excellent supper at the Gatwick Sofitel's Brasserie. Good service, fine steaks and a very drinkable southern French Carignan.

“ONE OF THE BEST.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

.......meals that we have ever had, and we have had many in our 50+ years of eating at good restaurants around the world.

Everything was top notch from the service, surroundings, but crucially the imaginative, beautifully presented, and most important of all, the highly flavoursome food. And it's not an arm or leg for such classy grub.
