Awarded 3 AA Rosettes, La Belle Epoque at Sofitel London Heathrow is the airport’s only fine-dining restaurant. Gourmet French cuisine draws from eclectic world influences for a menu that is crisp and elegant, like the restaurant interior.

Presentation at La Belle Epoque in Heathrow is exquisitely artistic; herb-crusted rack of lamb is the tender centre-piece for a vibrant plate of seasonal offerings, while blood orange and star anise bavaroise is garnished with delicate edible flowers. A 7-course tasting menu evokes a sense of occasion when dining in the ultra-modern Terminal 5.

Heathrow’s La Belle Epoque restaurant also offers an express lunch menu for diners on the move, while private dining makes for a more sophisticated, intimate experience. Sleek black dining booths and luxurious purple carpet characterise the chic interior at this Heathrow restaurant, while a special chef’s table gives the opportunity to observe mastery at work.

La Belle Epoque translates to 'the beautiful era’, and pays homage to the 19th-century French golden age of cultural revolution. Diners can also take advantage of free on-site parking.

    The food and service were excellent but due to the restaurant being on a quarter full, the ambience was lacking.

    My family & I were really looking forward to dining at the restaurant as it was closed last year when we transit in London on Sunday. The food and the presentation were really good. We've already recommended one of our work colleagues to dine at the restaurant when he was transiting at London Heathrow Airport. However, we were very disappointed with the service. As we've only arrived that evening and we had to fly out early in the morning the next day, we didn't want to have a heavy dinner and ordered either 2 entrees or 1 main per person for dinner. The waiter who took our order just gave us "the look" and repeatedly asked "Is this it?". On the menu, it states that tips is an optional 12.5% on the bill. When the bill came, the "optional" tip amount was already factored into the bill which I thought was totally misleading and unacceptable. Under normal circumstances, I am more than happy to pay for it but not after the waiter gave us the look, implying that we are so cheap for not ordering 3 courses for dinner.

    Great food, top notch flavours and presentation. Something on the menu for everybody, even people who think they don't like 'fussy dining'. Also, a small selection of fine wines by the glass! Don't want to shell out on a bottle of Puligny-Montrachet? They have you covered. Also excellent Tokaji in the dessert wine selection.

    Overall the cuisine is amazing; almost "picture" food. What is sad for such a posh place is the rather casual atmosphere that is allowed; children playing video games or running around playing football between tables.
