A word from Angelus Restaurant
Named after the Angelus Bell, this “bistro de luxe” is located in one of London’s last working mews. Formally the site of an old pub, the Art-Déco interiors have been cleverly incorporated into the original architecture of this early 19th century building. Dark wood, sumptuous fabrics and elaborate mirrors help create the atmosphere of a very elegant brasserie, yet the ambiance and service is welcoming and relaxed. Focusing on select favourites, the menu will include starters of Crème brulée au foie gras, followed by examples of fish and meat like Fillet of cod with chorizo, broccoli, grilled spring onions, toasted almond milk and brandade or Roast rump of Salt Marsh lamb, blanquette of shoulder and sweetbreads, seasonal vegetables.
Located next door to the Hyde Park Stables and just minutes from the Park itself, Angelus is the perfect place to enjoy an atmospheric brunch, lunch or dinner, or just a relaxing snack after a stroll through one of the most famous parks in London.

    I often struggle to find nice places for brunch in London, but this place is a little gem! The only surprise was that we were the only people there! The food was very tasty, and very reasonably priced (for central London). I had the Angelus cooked breakfast that tasted as though it had been cooked on a BBQ, which only enhanced the flavours in my opinion. The homemade bread is also wonderful. The staff are very polite and attentive, and the place has a lovely ambience - like being in an old-fashioned train station (in a good way). I would definitely recommend, and go back there!

    My family and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the restaurant along with my in-laws. We were very well looked after by the staff. The food was of a high standard and the waiter had a good knowledge of which wines goes with each course. I liked the French touch and the visit was very successful. We left the restaurant very satisfied.

    We had a fabulous evening at Angelus as ever - the staff cannot do enough to help you and made you feel welcome - they even remembered the wine that we had on our last visit 4 months ago. As ever their recommendations for dining were excellent and we finished off the meal with the shared starer platter - just perfect! I'm looking forward to going back soon.

    I have been to this restaurant for several occasions: several times with my husband to have a nice dinner, with my colleagues to have a business lunch, with my family to celebrate a baptism and a birthday. The food, the wine list and the service are excellent. The art deco decoration is very nice and classy. In the summer you can eat outside, there are a few tables on the pavement and the street is quiet. For the dessert or digestive drinks you can switch to the separate salon with sofas and dimmed light. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The lunch set menu is a bargain considering the quality of the food.

    I was looking for a good restaurant near Paddington station and chose Angelus purely on its location. The restaurant is hidden away on a quiet street, with riding stables on a nearby mews! From the minute we arrived members of staff were very welcoming; they brought us a highchair and stowed away the bulky pushchair. The brunch menu was excellent and really good value. We'll be back!

    An excellent restaurant. The service was very friendly and professional. The food and wine was well presented and flavoursome. We dined outside and enjoyed the village-like ambiance, with horses trotting by and a nearby children's party. We enjoyed a long, leisurely lunch and were treated with attentive politeness. Definitely a recommendation for anyone who wants to meet friends.

    Interesting and different menu did not live up to expectations. Food seemed to have been reheated and in some cases overcooked. (Too much batter on deep frie oyster and overcooked. ). lamb rather tasteless; tough and uneven cooking (probably because of the reheating). Cheeseboard was mean at the price and wine prices are on the very high side. maybe we just went on an off evenong (it was also very early)

    We lunched her on a Saturday - our first visit for some years. Quite close to Paddington Station, an area which is a bit of a gastronomic desert. I had the three courses for £27; my friend a la carte. Former definitely the better value for money. Portions are small: My smoked mackerel was just two pieces, and the cream cheese pattie also rather small. We both had the clafoutis. The wines are expensive but a very good range. We enjoyed the Malbec Tomero from Mendoza. Charming service from the young French waitress.

    I like the converted pub layout of Angelus, it seems surprising to get such good food in such a place. The service and food we received were very good, the let down was the ambience as the place was virtually empty - there was only one other table occupied. Overall very enjoyable.

    This was my second meal at Angelus, and as before, it was outstanding. The presentation of the dishes was beautiful, and the preparation was spot on - incredible flavours and pairings. The wine list is very comprehensive, and the maitre d' knows it well and makes excellent recommendations. I also like the ambiance of the dining room very much - very classic and elegant, yet friendly. Although it's not cheap, it's definitely worth it.

    Great little place only 5 mins from Paddington station. Can't understand why it's not more busy. Food, service and decor lovely. Tables may be a little cramped if it were full but it was good atmosphere for Sat lunch with a splattering of in-the-know locals and people looking for a lunch hideaway from Paddington tourist hell. Will definitely be returning. Set lunch is great value - would love to splash out on the A La Carte next time.

    Food while of high standard is not worth what they charge- over £200 for 2 people. Get much better food, value and service at likes of Coq D' Argent or Chez Bruce. Portions are small and don't expect to come out feeling you've been well fedt. Service was pretty poor considering there were only 3 other diners- slow in topping up the wine and despite me putting on reservation that it was girlfriend's birthday they didn't do anything (unlike other restaurants i've been to). All in all exceedingly disappointing and wouldn't go back. They can do much much better and you can find much better out there.
