We hadnt booked and it was very busy but we had a table within 30 mins. Food was really very tasty, good option for a meal if you are flying out early. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We always stay at Sofitel ahead of flying out on holiday and part of "getting the holiday off to a good start" is eating at La Brasserie. The staff are great - attentive without being intrusive and the right balance of friendly and professional. And the quality of the staff is matched by the quality of the food. As semi regulars we have our firm favourites (the crab and prawn salad is a starter must) but are happy to try new things as they appear - the recently added beef ribs are the latest delight. The little touches such as the amuse-bouche and variety of bread rolls offered gives it all that "something a bit special" feel. As well as self indulgence, we have used La B to catch up with friends who live near Gatwick and they were similarly impressed. I wish I could visit more often - like I said, I wish I lived closer to this place ................

We've stayed at the Sofitel on a number of occasions now prior to travelling out fom Gatwick and have eaten at La Brasserie a couple of times. It's a nice place to start your holiday, although I have to say that it was not as good as on our previous visit.

Our starters were pretty good - crab & prawn salad for 3 of us was fine, but the honey roast sweet potato soup was a bit too sweet. Mains were variable - plaice was nice, albeit a bit like an omlettee, sea bass was lovely, duck o.k. and the courgette/goats cheese dish not that great.

So, food was a bit variable this time, but the restaurant still has a nice feel to it and the service was good.

If staying at the Sofitel, we would still recommend La Brasserie over the Chinese restaurant alternative. Plus try out a few cocktails at the mezzanine bar. When we next return to the hotel we will go back to La Brasserie and hope that it is back at a 'very good' rating.

Had the most outstanding breakfast here, fantastic selection, staff were so accommodating and the scrambled eggs were out of this world, great value in comparison to what you would pay and get inside the airport.
Perfect start to the holiday would highly recommend.

This eatery within the Sofitel has produced consistent food for some years now. Always something you fancy with attentive staff and a quick turnaround if needed
