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.

    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.

    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.
