Restaurant description

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, the brothers have created a menu around modern British dishes while continuing to include a few longstanding Galvin favourites.

The menu showcases a host of rich flavours in dishes such as charcoal-grilled rib-eye with duck fat parmentier, Brixham plaice with brown shrimps and capers and Portland crab linguine. Galvin classics include steak tartare with toasted sourdough and their famous apple tart tatin. A set menu for lunch and early dining features delicious dishes such as Dingley Dell pork belly with apricots and harissa mash, sea bream with orzo, courgette and lemon and Isle of Wight tomatoes with lovage and cottage cheese.

Breakfast is served daily and the terrace is open every day from 8 am-11 pm.

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Dined here with my husband, and had a wonderful evening! Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, especially Barry and Andreea, thank you. The food was just delicious, especially the duck leg confit and pheasant supreme! And suggest you don’t miss the desserts either..! A really lovely overall experience, and will definitely be back.

    Enjoyed a well prepared meal on a Saturday evening, very few diners in a modern and well maintained dining room. On Piccadilly at the bottom of Park Lane, five minutes walk from Green Park tube. Attentive and friendly staff. Would recommend ordering sides as they don’t come with the main course.

    A group of 5 ate here .. reunion lunch - we had the 3 courses plus a glass of bubbles - excellent value , delicious food , We were seated in an area off to the side so it felt very intimate - almost like private dining ! Staff were very attentive.

    We had a great meal. Our favourite was the main course - slow cooked pork, which was absolutely delicious. Chocolate mousse for dessert was not quite as expected, hence four stars for food, otherwise 5 stars.

    We had a very nice corner table. The staff were efficient and unobtrusive. The meal was delicious- the cods roe and the pork on the special menu.
