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 within this famous hotel.

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.

    Food was of a high quality and service satisfactory. Dining room not as impressive as Galvin spiral fields and menu a little limited

  • ((((( 23 November 2017 by Audrey Davis from Surro

    Good value and choice for 3 course meal deal.
    Sea trout cooked perfectly.
    Sticky toffee pudding tasty.

    Sadly a thoroughly dissapointing experience. Having booked the promoted Sunday lunch, we were astonished to be told the menu price to be charged, would be double the advertised price. The manager responded with our howls of complaint, that there had been a computer mistake, however agreed to only charge the lower price. We ordered the featured Sunday roast beef, to be finally served after a long wait, inedible tough steaks were served. when the manager was called once again, his explanation was that there was no roast meat available.we had reserved our table for 11.30, by this time it was gone 3.00pm. The manager tried to apologise, offered a discount, however he was out of his depth! We chose the Athenaeum resteraunt, because of the featured Galvins resteraunt , thought it might be special, Galvins and the Atheneum’s reputation have suffered.

    It was okay - somewhat lacking in atmosphere but staff pleasant and food quite nice

    We felt that the meal was good value. We especially enjoyed the tuna burger and the cheesecake dessert. The service was very good without being obtrusive. Overall a very enjoyable evening.

    I have dined here before as well as all the other Galvin restaurants, and we love the standard of food, the service and the value for money. Each one of the Galvin Restaurants has its own style and feel, but we love the Athenaeum. The tasting menu on Saturday was sumbime. The staff were brilliant, as usual, and our guests felt they had been truly well looked after.

    Excellent food, and staff, and very reasonably priced.

  • ((((( 16 November 2017 by Claire Archer from Milton Keynes

    We went for a pre theater set menu of 5 courses for £29.50 and at that price I thought it didn’t matter if it was just ok. I have eaten in Michelin starred restaurants that have service that no way compares to that we received. Our waiter was fantastic and I wish I had gotten his name. The food flowed at a perfect pace as did the drinks ?? The food was excellent. Seasonal, beautifully presented and very tasty. Perfect portion sizes. I have recommended this to so many people and will definitely be back to try the normal menu.
