Restaurant description

An icon of London’s culinary arena, Le Gavroche is a 2 Michelin-starred restaurant specialising in classic French fine dining. The restaurant was opened in 1967 by the legendary Roux brothers and is now under the guidance of Chef Patron Michel Roux Jr.

Known as “the last bastion in London of classically French haute cuisine”, the Le Gavroche menu consists of thoughtfully prepared dishes using carefully sourced produce, and wines from the restaurant’s renowned cellar. Signature dishes include the legendary Soufflé Suissesse, which has been on the menu since 1969. Guests can choose from the À La Carte or the Menu Exceptionnel tasting menu, featuring Le Gavroche classics and contemporary French cuisine.

The Chef’s Library is an intimate space with a table seating 6 people, decorated with a variety of cookbooks collected by Michel Roux Jr. The Chef’s Library has a direct video link to the kitchen, and offers a daily changing 6-course menu presented to you by your chef.

Le Gavroche remains one of the capital’s most sought-after restaurants. Located in Mayfair, the restaurant is a short stroll from Hyde Park and a 7-minute walk from Marble Arch Underground Station.

    A birthday celebration for 4 ladies. We had the Business Lunch which included wine and service charge, excellent value. Michel Roux jnr came to our table and asked us how our meal was. Lovely, cosy atmosphere.

    Everything was wonderful - we had been waiting over a year to take our son for his 40th Birthday in September 2018. We had been before and knew he would love it here. From the first greeting through to the last goodbye, and the manager hailing us a cab we couldn't fault our experience at all. The staff are the stars! We don't eat very often in restaurants like this but felt relaxed and comfortable. The food was exceptional and we loved the extra courses, and the extra bread offered.The atmosphere in the dining room is magical, and we just loved taking it all in - we were not rushed at all and had time to enjoy a leisurely last drink in the Bar upstairs - something we didn't have time for the last time we came. Thank you all so much - we had a very special day and hope to come back again.

    The environment, decor and staff were excellent the food was well cooked, but it wasn’t what I expected. I had foi gras and turbot the starter was quite bland and the garnishes for the turbot were tasteless. The wine list was just a list of names of producers with no guidance as to what to expect. The food was expensive, which I expected, but not worth the money. Unfortunately, I was disappointed and would not go there again. I’ve eaten better food elsewhere for a lot less money. Mr Roux seems to be resting on his previous reputation.
