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.

    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.

    Only negative was the unnecessary background music!

    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.

    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.
