Restaurant description

Awarded a Michelin star just 1 year after opening, Galvin La Chapelle is the third venture from illustrious chef brothers, Chris and Jeff.

Offering a seasonally changing repertoire from chef patron, Jeff Galvin, the La Chapelle menu spans from elegant prix fixe choices, to gourmet Sunday roasts. Exquisite Galvin signature dishes include lasagne of Dorset crab with beurre Nantais and pea shoots, or Tagine of Bresse pigeon with couscous, confit lemon and harissa sauce, while desserts, complete with sommelier recommendations, include apple tarte Tatin with Normandy crème fraiche.

Named both Tatler magazine and AA London’s Restaurant of the Year, the award-showered Galvin La Chapelle in London boasts one of the most skillfully compiled cellars in London. A rare vertical wine list is offered, as well as some invaluable vintage bottles.

The majestic Galvin La Chapelle dining room features medieval-style chandeliers, lofty stone ceilings and statuesque pillars. La Chapelle restaurant in Spitalfields is a 4-minute walk from Liverpool Street Station.

The dress code is smart casual.

    Very lively atmosphere in an interesting rustic building, service is good, food not very impressive, some dishes like the desert apple tart is similar to how it is served in a fast food restaurant.

    The venue was lovely. We ate from the set 3 course menu. I had the duck pate starter which tasted amazing. The Sunday roast beef wasn't great though. It had been recommend so I was a little disappointed. The Yorkshire was overdone and everything else on the plate was a bit bland.

    All in all we had an remarkable evening at Galvin La Chapelle. The restaurant has an unique ambience, the service was very friendly and attentively and the menu was perfectly matched with the wine. All 5 courses were very delicious, but if we would need to choose a favorite we would vote for the main course. Thank you very much for this wonderful evening!
