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.

    We enjoyed the food but what happened to the Athenaeum ? This new restaurant Galvin has a cafe feel !! We were expecting plush seats and tables but instead were crammed together for no reason. There was no atmosphere. We used to love coming to this hotel and its previous restaurant for the past 20 years as it felt special and plush. Sadly will will not return again.

    Very attentive staff, good food with good portions. A better seat would have been preferred, but they didn't mind when we asked to move. A instruction card to find the bathroom wouldn't have gone amiss, though! But, overall, lovely contemporary setting, and polite servers. We had a great evening.
