From Michelin-starred chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin, Galvin at The Athenaeum champions the finest in British produce. Stepping away from their trademark French-inspired menus, modern takes on classic British dishes join Galvin favourites and a quintessential afternoon tea.

The Galvin menu showcases a host of rich flavours, in dishes such as Dingley Dell pork belly with black pudding and an apple and hazelnut salad, yellowfin tuna burger with white cabbage slaw and avocado, and potato gnocchi with braised short rib and Portobello mushrooms. Galvin classics include duck liver parfait with red onion marmalade and toasted brioche, and steak tartare with toasted sourdough.

Afternoon tea at The Athenaeum on Piccadilly is as refined as its setting. Tuck into classic finger sandwiches, pastries and cakes, and add a glass of fine champagne for extra indulgence.

Offering sophisticated dining in a 5-star setting, Galvin at The Athenaeum in London sits a short walk from both Green Park and Hyde Park Corner Tube stations.

    Selection was lovely and the restaurant accommodated our late arriving guest. Would have liked more savoury as there was a lot of 'sweet' things to try. But everything was delicious.

    The afternoon tea was delicious, and the refills of sandwich and cake mean there's no danger of going hungry! Pleasant staff and a beautifully decorated restaurant, despite some renovations work going on near the entrance.

    Galvin at the Athanaeum is a beautifully modern and elegant restaurant, tasteful and inviting with comfortable lighting. We had the 5 course tasting menu which was thoughtfully adapted for my companions dietary requirements. Each dish was presented beautifully, the ingredients seasonally fresh and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient, overall a wonderful experience that I would not hesitate to recommend.

    I meet friends at the restaurant on a regular basis. We have always enjoyed our experience at the venue. As we are all pensioners we appreciate the offers. Our last visit was in September. It had just been taken over and we noticed a marked difference in menu, staff and ambience. We decided not to return.As the location suits us, we decided to give it another try. So glad we did. Everything was fine. Excellent value on the set menu. We look forward to our next visit in March. Hopefully there will be an offer on. We have tried other restaurants but do like the Athenaeum.

    Poor Experience, from such a recognised brand. Dining room was organised chaos. Like sitting in the hotel canteen. Disappointed. Will stick to the other Galvin restaurants in future.

    It was a dealight! We booked to have the Star Deal and I wondered if this would mean getting a little bit less attention from the staff or a slightly less delicious meal. But the staff were a delight, we were looked after like royalty!
    If I was to be a bit picky, I would say that my pasta main wasn't as great as the rest of the meal, it was a little too salty and didn't taste of much else. The staff did come to check on us and I could have brought this up then so it is entirely my fault. The chocolata valrhona mousse definitely made up for this little niggle!
    Please pass our thanks to the staff, they were really lovely.
