We always enjoy this restaurant. It is a beautiful dining room and the food, as ever, was excellent. The service was a bit slow but I think that this was because the restaurant was very busy. It did not inconvenience us.

Awarded a Michelin star just 1 year after opening, Galvin La Chapelle is the third venture from illustrious chef brothers, Chris and Jeff. Amidst the fashionable buzz of east London, this spectacular Grade II-listed site also boasts a summery al fresco terrace.

Offering a seasonally changing repertoire from chef patron, Jeff Galvin, the La Chapelle menu spans from elegant prix fixe choices, to gourmet Sunday roasts. Exquisite Galvin signature dishes include pavé of sea trout with squid ink linguine, or Landes foie gras with Lyonnaise onions, while desserts, complete with sommelier recommendations, include coffee parfait with berry compote and chocolate crumble.

Named both Tatler magazine and AA London’s Restaurant of the Year, the award-showered Galvin La Chapelle in London boasts one of the most skillfully compiled cellars in London. A rare vertical wine list is offered, as well as some invaluable vintage bottles.

The majestic Galvin La Chapelle dining room features medieval-style chandeliers, lofty stone ceilings and statuesque pillars. La Chapelle restaurant in Spitalfields is a 4-minute walk from Liverpool Street Station.

    The restaurant deserves its name "La chapelle" an old building conveted with talent into a classy restaurant where the old and the new marry themselves harmoniously. After passing by the discrete entrance, we drank a delicious gin&tonic at the bar which let us the luxury to embrace the place. The food is delicious, the service almost perfect and you pay the price for it but it is definitely worth it.
    What an excellent night!

    Extremely disappointing. Having used your offer successfully at OXBO the day previous and since used your offer at Hawksmoor the day after, both extremely pleasurable experiences, for this to be so far from what was advertised was a real disappointment. The greeting was good.The menu presented did not have the offer on it, I explained we had booked a special offer and was quite rudely pointed to the Chef Day menu which was a small part of the overall menu. When it was clear that was what we ordering, we were questioned about it a way that was uncomfortable. The Chef Menu offered was £34.90 for 3 courses whereas the special offer was for £29 for 3 courses with a glass of champagne. The glass of champagne was never offered although the wine list (with most wines starting at £45 a bottle) was thrust at us. We decided as we all had work to do in the afternoon to stick to water, which was filled like water coming from a hydrant and often spilling on the table. The food was OK, not the level I was expecting. The total bill for 3 of us for lunch was £147 (no alcohol, only the 3 courses, coffee and water). To compare the OXBO included the Champagne and was £65 for 2 people. Hawksmoor which I will rate separately and cannot speak highly enough of was £64 for two people including champagne. I am really pleased that I tried your offer 3 times, as if this was my only experience I would not be repeating it.

    Service and attentive staff was very good. The offer was duly honoured but it was obvious that the menu was tailored to the offer and we had availed ourselves of other offers at other restaurants and the experience was more pleasant and the food and presentation of a much higher standard.

    Delicious lunch to celebrate the completion of our daughters dissertation
    Great service, fabulous food as always. The octopus, smoked duck starter was incredible, and the roast beef lived up to expectation . A leisurely way to spend a Sunday afternoon listening to smooth jazz and somebody else cooking!
