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, 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.

    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.

    We have enjoyed the peaceful ambiance and excellent service on previous occasions, and will certainly come again! I have to say that on this visit our party of 4 were unanimously very disappointed with the first course of cold peas and radish in buttermilk. The other items were delicious.

    Food was good but ambience poor. The restaurant feels like you're eating in (effectively) a hotel lobby.

    The restaurant was gorgeous and the staff all went above and beyond for us, the cider soup was something else, so yummy and the duck leg! ... our companions were still hungry following the Hake main but that’s by and by, thanks for a great evening and holding our coats for us.

    Table for 2 on a Thursday Lunchtime. Staff were welcoming, polite and helpful. Food was of the highest standard and well cooked and presented. There was quite a delay for the cheese course (no reason given) which delayed our return home. Overall very good
