I visited this restaurant as a solo traveller before my flight. I chose the sea bream for lunch which was cooked beautifully and the wine recommendation was appreciated. The service was prompt and attentive. It was nice to get out of the busy terminal into the calm atmosphere of this quality brasserie.

Shockingly slow service, especially for an airport restaurant. Took forever to get served and food took a long time to arrive as well. Food is decent but really not better than most airport fare. Expensive for what it is.

The worst thing about airports is the food - but here in this awful terminal is a complete oasis. 3 hours to spare and hungry, my wife and I did a circuit of the terminal to see where might be acceptable and Oriel won the vote and are we glad it did. Never had a better meal and service in... More

30 minutes waiting for a salad and for a burger... then the fries were cold and tasting as gum. The bill included the next table order... maybe just many wrong things just one day... but I didn't like it

This charming place has such a wonderful atmosphere that you quickly forget you are grabbing food before a flight. There is a fine attention to detail and everything is high quality from the thick paper napkins to crockery. Gentle and relaxing music removes you from the hustle and bustle of the airport and you feel as if you are in... More

Definitely a more up market place for breakfast, has a nice feel about the place. Waiter service available for bar drinks too. Bit pricey but it is Heathrow. Food and service good but wife didn't like the menu much (limited choice for non meat/egg eaters)

Very poor. The restaurant was not busy yet it took ages for anyone to take our order. It then took even longer for our food to arrive. And when it did much of it was cold.

In what is generally a ghastly Terminal building this French Brasserie really helps improve the mood. It is particularly notable for the super friendly staff - a special mention for Vavarna who served me today - who make it a great experience.

I always use this restraint. Twice a month. Always perfect service and good food. And always met and served by a guy named Naga who always remembers my order. Always fast accurate service. I like that and I like the reliability. And the staff are always the same. That's a good sign. TW

Picking the right restaurant at a busy airport terminal is always a challenge and something you never plan in advance. If you are at Heathrow Terminal 3 looking for a place to eat, I recommend Oriel. With a noon flight and a two hour trip to the airport our plan was to breakfast at the airport. We passed many restaurants... More
