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 £36 you can enjoy a 'grande bouffe' without a grand bill.

“I adore this building”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

I visited this restaurant 16 years ago and was totally blown away by the building. I was so excited to bring my husband here recently and share it with him.If you like art deco and unique reuse of buildings, not to mention the utter charm of Bibendum, the Michelin Man, you must come here. There are so many neat little Michelin touches. The food is pretty classic French. It's very good, not great but good. The service is wonderful and the whole time we were there I felt so very lucky.

“Great food... Cool Building”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Friends of ours came here a few months before and told us we would definitely like this place... and we did. Real good food, friendly, fun wait staff, all in a classic building... The Michelin House. Different, and great. Try it... The building itself is worth it... and the food puts it over the top !

“Fantastic Food”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Enjoyed good food and excellent, attentive service. They allowed us to bring in our wine which I thought was nice. Rabbit, Duck, Lamb, Fish, and Beef were ordered and everyone was pleased. Desserts were interesting and good. We will definitely return.
