Description: The legendary Langan's Brasserie restaurant boasts a great location in London's Green Park, just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. Stroll up Stratton Street to find Langan's Brasserie waiting with its warm greeting and super service. The Anglo-French cuisine and relaxed interior, complete with distinctive artworks and mismatched lampshades, have remained popular with London diners for more than thirty years. The brasserie menu is hand-written each week and features traditional dishes like Langan's bangers and mash with white onion sauce; pan-fried halibut with broad beans, shrimp and capers; and treacle tart with custard or vanilla ice cream. Langan's restaurant's diverse wine list features familiar favourites from all over the world, as well as some popular French classics, and there is also a fine wine list on request for the more discerning connoisseur. Among long-running London restaurants, Langan's is one of the stars.

“First visit at lunch time, excellent again”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Yet again, excellent service, brilliant food. I especially love the spinach soufflé with anchovy sauce.
The art work on the walls is eclectic and worth looking at.
This restaurant is definitely worth a visit you will not be disappointed.

“English style semi formnal restaurant in central London”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Langans is an institution right by Green Park Tube on Piccadilly. Not a big choice but lots of traditional choices-fish and chips, bangers and mash as well as more sophisticated choices. Good wine list. Buzzy atmnosphere with an older clientele. Tables are reasonably spaced in this brightly lit restaurant. Table away from the door where you can get cold air and feeling crowded by people waiting.
Pricey if you have 2/3 course plus drinks-we paid £175 for 3 with one bottle of wine -not going to break the bank but also not a place I can go to every week:-(
We enjoyed ourselves and I am already planning to take overseas visitors very soon and it is a place I always recommend as being quite "English" for overseas visitors.

“GOOD, BUT .......”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Langans has a very good reputation and at times it is excellent but at other times it risks becoming average or even very average. After going to eat at Langans several times in 2012 I am begining to think that it may be living too much on its past reputation. The service is very disappointing and one example says it all: our bottle of white wine was put in an ice bucket close to a nearby table and the wine was served to the guests at the other table instead of to us. When a restaurant has a reputation it is essential to ensure everything is almost perfect or the reputation can be lost in one evening. Will give it another chance but will go there alone.

“Gorgeous- a really fun restaurant”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

My husband and I ate there last weekend, he had eaten here a few times previously and was very excited to bring me. It did not disappoint. Thankfully we had booked a table at the last minute, we were still asked to wait but there was an area where we could sit and wnjoy a drink and peruse the menus. We ordered a bottle of house red and each had starter, main and desert. My husband had an ''Irish coffee''. It was a fantastic evening, staff were very on the ball and there was even a woman going table to table chatting to guests and doing magic tricks. Very enjoyable and I would definitely return. Agree with other posters though. it is pricey to say the least but worth it for a special occasion or a one off visit to the city.
