Fantastic food and service! We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at the Galvin. Although, I prefer the previous interior decor to the present one.

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.

    We were seatied near the entrance to the restaurant so everyone passed us entering and leaving the restaurant. It was extremely noisy. Pasta main course was dry.

    Really lovely place and centrally located next to Green Park tube station. Restaurant was beautifully decorated for Xmas. We had set menu and food was delicious. Sea bream and sardines for starter were my favourite but all 4 of us ordered different things so we can try. Many people were having afternoon tea which looked really good too!

    Nice food. The restaurant was a bit lacking- no tablecloths and more like a cafe.

    The food was delicious, excellent terrine and delicious sea bream. Service was warm and very helpful.

    I enjoyed everything, however I only wish there weren't 2 pieces of scales in my sardine starter.

    This venue was recommended to me for a reunion with an old friend and it certainly added to the occasion. Pleasant tea in elegant surroundings with excellent service which allowed us to chat and eat and drink without hurrying us at all.

    The food was really good but the service was very average when I booked It states that on the set menu that you will get two grasses of champagne and It didn't happen. I payed and then I have to mention to one of the waiters about it and then offered them but in the lounge and I was our anniversary so it did not fill so special.
