Restaurant description

At the prestigious London Hilton on Park Lane, Podium Restaurant specialises in gourmet interpretations of classic British dishes and superb afternoon teas. Featuring one of the chicest champagne bars in London, inside the hotel, find CC Bar with its stunning carved wooden bar and contemporary décor throughout, acting as a backdrop for decadent cocktails and celebrated vintages.

Traditional menu choices at Podium Restaurant in London can be seen in the continental breakfast, and simple Scottish kippers with grilled tomato. Hearty dishes such as pan-fried lamb cutlets and beer-battered cod with hand-cut chips also feature, while options like broad bean risotto are ideal for vegetarian diners.

Podium Restaurant & Bar also offers its renowned ‘Confessions of a Chocoholic’ afternoon tea, giving diners a 4-course banquet of sweet delights on an edible chocolate plate.

The CC Bar menu is a showcase of premium signature champagne cocktails, such as the Strawberry Field, which features fresh strawberries shaken with white rum and coconut syrup, topped with La Cuvée Diamant, alongside Bellini recipes that combine Amaretto di Saronno with sloe gin and other specialities. To complement the cocktails, diners can enjoy light bites including squid tempura with chilli chutney, antipasti like mozzarella, Parma ham and cherry tomatoes, or even a bowl of strawberries to pair with champagne.

    Very good but too expensive

    This was a most enjoyable dining experience and was my treat for my brother's birthday earlier the same week. My brother had the calimari as a starter while I had the goat's cheese croquettes. For a main I paid £2 extra and had the teriyaki salmon which was very tasty, while my brother had the lamb rack. For dessert we had creme brulee (me) and the caramalised pear and almond band (my brother). The white house wine, which was included in the offer price, was perfectly acceptable. We had a view of Park Lane (while it was still light) and the staff were attentive. Altogether I recommend this - though if we'd paid the full price I would think it over-priced.

    Food was really good as were the staff. We dined here on a woucher and the staff explained how the deal worked and helped with every need. On the negative, the restaurant is very dated and dirty to the eye. Also, the men’s toilet is outside the restaurant and on the 1st floor of the hotel - this was very inconvenient. Aside from this, we had an excellent experience dining at Podium!
