A horrible restaurant to visit. Even though it is in a lovey setting, I would not recommend it to anyone. If you visit be prepared to have extremely rude and greedy waiters and waitresses. It is also over expensive for the quality of the food....More

Chef , if you cannot cook a proper rump steak and chips to top London standards, you should sneak off to Goodmans or Hawksmoor to learn. This a a very fine building which needs fine cuisine. Get a grip !

Food was very good. Location in the park and the building are stunning. Waitstaff was very friendly, staff when you enter were a little snooty.

Fantastic place, I really enjoyed it. Inside Holland Park, you hear the peacocks as you walk in and we saw a fox on the way out. Lovely food, great service and someone playing the paino which was jolly. Would recommend

For parties of 20-30 we usually recommend the upper dining area - the space does accommodate up to 60 guests but with 3 round tables you also have space for reception drinks. Depending on the weather, the terrace is also... More

Description
Very pretty restaurant set in Holland Park, one of London's most attractive park areas. Since it's opening, Belvedere has been popular with both locals and outsiders from other areas of London. The Belvedere is particularly popular for Sunday lunch - possibly because with all that greenery you can kid yourself that you've escaped from the wicked City. A complete 'makeover' in April 2000 updated the decor and the cuisine. What's cooking: Parfait of foie gras en gelée, toasted poilâne; Confit of salmon, cauliflower cream Maison Prunier to start, and for mains - Daube of Aberdeen Angus à l'ancienne pomme purée, garnish provençale; Grilled tuna with aubergine caviar sauce vierge au basilic or perhaps Poulet noir with morilles, sauce Albufeira.
