Positioned right opposite The Royal Academy of Arts, Richoux is an elegant cafe and restaurant popular among locals and tourists in the Piccadilly Circus area. The dining space is decked in warm colours and creates a cosy setting to enjoy a cup of coffee or a selection of cakes.

The crowd-pleasing Richoux menu is filled with British classics, plus some international recipes cherry-picked from across the globe. Start the day with New York-style waffles or a traditional full English, and feast on dinnertime favourites like shepherd’s pie, or chicken Milanese with spaghetti. Richoux restaurant also serves a kids menu (complete with activity pack), and a famous afternoon tea offering.

Renowned for its spectacular patisserie selection, Richoux’s dessert counter is packed full with meticulously-crafted cakes, tarts and fancies. Enjoy a sweet treat alongside a cup of flame-roasted artisan coffee, or British heritage tea blend.

    Very nice lunch in busy old Richoux. The eggs benedict were perfect. Very busy but service was efficient and professional. Choice of gateaux more limited than before and more catering to English taste than continental. But overall agreeable and well located for the Royal Academy where we were going afterwards,

    Food was excellent and the service friendly, knowledgable and made it a great experience. Thoroughly recommend dining there and you must have a dessert - they are excellent to say the least.

    Pleasant relaxed ambience, perfect for dinner or coffee and cake pre or post visiting the Royal Academy. Patisserie absolutely delicious and beautifully presented.

    Service can be a little slow but polite and knowledgeable staff.

    The restaurant is very attractive, now painted in green and gold having been red for many years. With the change in decor the food and service have improved and I would recommend both. This is that rare restaurant where you can get a snack or a full meal all day with comfortable seating, nice decor and attentive service.

    The atmosphere and food were pleasant. However, towards the end of the evening my friends and I were startled and appalled to see a mouse running around our table. We were sitting in one of the side rooms. I have dined in Richoux on several past occasions. However, I am not sure that I want to return. It is shocking to realize that there are vermin in Richoux!! Therefore, I am not recommending it at the present time.

    Very civilized and comfortable for lunch for 4 persons on a public holiday. Food was delicious. Fish pie particularly recommended. Chicken Milanese involved rather too much spaghetti. Salad had mandatory dressing - no option to have dressing on the side. Waiters in a bit of a hurry.
