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.

    I had dinner here with a friend and it was the perfect location for a mid-week treat. The staff are always welcoming and attentive and as the restaurant wasn't busy we could have the kind of conversation not always possible in a noisy restaurant. We had a delicious meal; all of it was great but the dessert was the star of the evening! My friend did not know The Athenaeum previously but said that she would definitely be returning as will I!

    Decent food, relatively good service and a nice (hotelish) atmosphere.

    I was disappointed that when we arrived 10 mins early we couldn’t get our table early (even though the restaurant was empty). The food was good, although there were a few issues such as honeycomb that was rock hard and would break a tooth! Lastly I booked for a birthday celebration and was told that we would get a birthday dessert tray - which did not happen.

    Lovely little restaurant, great food, good service although as soon as we finished our food the the service dried up and it took ages to get some additional coffees. Overall a fab meal.
