Description: Named in retrospect and translated as the "Beautiful Era", our inspiration for this restaurant emerged from the period in European social history during the late 19th century that lasted until World War,It became recognised as the "golden age" - a time when new technologies and medical discoveries were found and when politics, art and literature underwent radical transformation. In Paris, restaurants achieved a new splendour and cachet for one to parade and where fashion began to move in seasonal cycles.In the culinary sense this period is enormously relevant to our philosophy of progression, optimism and very modern.We would like to think this beautiful era is strongly characterised by our cooking which is rarely serious yet rooted in classical French cuisine and have extended our repertoire to embrace some exciting 'outward looking' far eastern variations.

We have visited La Belle Epoque twice in the last year. We always stay in the Sofitel when flying out of Heathrow, and we discovered this wonderful restaurant. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Our server, Ashley, was very professional and helpful, suggesting a very nice wine and advising us on our selections. My husband had the lamb, I had the pork belly, and my daughter had fish. All were excellent. We look forward to eating here whenever we find ourselves at the Sofitel.

Booked in to the Accor Sofitel Hotel at Heathrow Terminal 5 as a final night chilling after returning from a mini cruise in celebration of my wife's 60th Birthday. Discovered the hidden delight of La Belle Epoque by accident when we booked a table last minute , but what a wonderful surprise ! Great food , warm and friendly ambience and staff that went the extra yard to make the whole experience one to remember.

Flying out from Heathrow or on your way back through Terminal 5 - give it a try . You will not be disappointed !

My husband and I ended up at La Belle Epoque due to unfortunate circumstances (we've missed our flight) Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the lovely decor and ambience. A friendly receptionist showed us to our table. The place wasn't too busy and had a nice and relaxing atmosphere. Another surprise came when the food arrived - it was definitely above airport hotel standard, in fact it was top London restaurant level. All the staff were extremely friendly and attentive, going above and beyond to make our experience a pleasant one. They have definitely turned what was an extremely stressful evening into a extremely enjoyable one.
Thank you team La Belle Epoque!

A wonderful place to rest after arriving in, and before departing from London. A truly 5-star hotel with comfortable and modern accommodation, two great bars and two great restaurants, with the main restaurant a lovely experience in fine dining without any pretensions.

The staff are very helpful and kind.
