A nice restaurant, calm enough when you have to wait for your plane. The quality of the food is OK - nothing really special, but average-good. Service is slightly slow, so take your time! The price is OK, specially taking into account it's in the airport

Wow! My partner and I always make a point now when flying from Heathrow to stop here for a drink before hand. This is due to an remarkable member of your staff named Jailesh. He remembers us every time we pass through the airport which may be months in between our travels. On our first visit, we were feeling rather... More

This is a fabulous champagne bar and restaurant found in Terminal 3 at Heathrow I love this place. My trip starts with my obligatory couple of glasses of Veuve Cliquot and with some chicken liver pâté. A wonderful way to start my holiday. They had a children's menu, breakfast menu and lunch menu we arrived on the cross over between... More

I travel regularly through t3 and I always go to oriel for breakfast. The chefs are very good at what they do, the food is always so quick and delicious. The staff could not be friendlier and you can see the manager has a great relationship with his staff. Lovely French restaurant with a nice relaxing atmosphere.

We stopped in here and my partner had moules frites, the moules were good and were a decent sized portion. I had an oriel burger which I thought was disappointing it was quite bland even with paying extra for bacon and the portion of French fries was tiny. I was still hungry after the burger and chips! I think next... More

I took some time deciding where to eat when I had a 4 hour layover in T3 and I'm glad I did. Oriel turned out to be an excellent bet. I was there at probably the busiest time of the day and yet the staff found me a nice little corner table where I could chill out and enjoy their... More

Angelina was the best! We had 12 hour lay over and she was cheerful, helpful and attentive! The wine was great too! If you have you need a drink she's your girl!

Oriel is situated in the top left corner of the departure lounge (after security) in Heathrow Terminal 3. There isn't a great choice of restaurants in the terminal, but of what there is Oriel is probably the best. Marketed as a French Bistro (and decorated as such), the menu covers the usual airport fare of all day breakfasts, burgers and... More

Had a very nice and relaxing breakfast ahead of a long flight involving 2 continents. Friendly staff, good well cooked food and a clean and relaxed atmosphere. Good stuff.

I never thought I'd be giving an airport restaurant a good review! I had the veg bean casserole. It was server too cold but reheated by microwave and was excellent. Tap water and refills was served without any problems. The Caesar salad with chicken bacon and anchovies was excellent. Large glass of white wine was good.
