A word from Apsley's A Heinz Beck Restaurant
Apsleys - a Heinz Beck Restaurant in London’s iconic Lanesborough Hotel at Hyde Park Corner has scaled the culinary heights under the direction of the three Michelin-starred German chef and gained its own Michelin star. Together with Executive Chef Heros De Agostinis, Beck has created a menu that focuses on lighter Mediterranean-inspired dishes like sea bass cannolo, roast pigeon with pearl onion and mustard seed sauce and potato gnocchi with shellfish broth – very attuned to the way we like to dine in the 21st century. Apsleys' stunning Venetian-style dining room, with its glass roof and plush upholstery, is one of London’s most beautiful dining spaces, an elegant setting for any occasion. At lunchtime, Apsleys' ‘Menu del Giorno’ is popular with local business people, while Beck’s seven course tasting menu is ideal for celebratory dinners. The well-spaced tables give a subdued ambience and afternoon tea here is a delight. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "they bring me lamb i order beef with out inform me about it and im allergic to lamb"
    dined on 11/07/2013
  • "Dining here was a good experience and the vegetarian options were delicious. This restaurant is more about the lovely surroundings than the excellence of the food or service. The overall the food and service were fine but nothing special. The puddings however were excellent and the chef did go to the trouble of making it feel special for the occasion I went for."

  • "Absolutely amazing. Amazing service, food and wine"

  • "Always a treat - service is impeccable as is the food. Wish I could afford to go more often, it is conveniently close to my home and office ...."
    dined on 19/12/2013
  • "Great food, lovely restaurant but quite expensive even with the top table deal- once we had ordered water and a few glasses of wine, the bill was £200 +"
    dined on 15/11/2013
  • "A little disappointing,slow service,wine chosen replaced with very nice wine but not told that was £5 more per glass.Very pleasant room.Food acceptable.Will not be rushing to return."
    dined on 25/11/2013
  • "Lovely setting but disappointing experience compared to previous visits. Service felt rushed and a little impersonal. For the main course, the turkey option was unavailable surprisingly and the lamb which I ordered was overcooked. My friend who is vegetarian was charged £19.50 for a bowl of clear, tomato soup! Previous visits have always been of very high standard and excellent value. I emailed my feedback to the restaurant directly but received no response."

  • "From the moment we walked in Apsley's was like walking into another world - serene, classy and beautiful. I dined with a fellow girlfriend for lunch and we went on a TT offer - which wasn't really an 'offer' as the two/three course 'cheaper' menu of the day was actually already a daily hotel offer. Every single course - without exception - was beautifully executed, with exquisite tastes and full of flavour, from the warm fresh rolls to the petit fours. Absolutely top, top food... Though it'd be pretty highly priced to eat a la carte. Worth going for the menu of the day though. Would definitely go again - highly recommended."

  • "Apsley's was one of my favourite restaurants, with an interior that was hard to beat in London. So it's very sad to see it shutting down and being refurbished. We ate here on the very last night so I suspect this review is somewhat redundant, however, the food was utterly delicious and I am hoping chef Beck opens up another London site. Sadly we could tell from the level of service that it was the last evening - there was just a general air of distraction amongst the staff. Added to which the wine list had been heavily reduced which was a little disappointing. Still, it was good to come here one last time. I'll be interested to see what it becomes in 9 months' time."
    dined on 20/12/2013
  • "this was my 4th time to aspley, the previous experiences were very good, but this time was very bad. The service was bad, the portion and the quality of food reduced a lot... really not recommend"
    dined on 12/12/2013
  • "We had an absolutely brilliant time at Apsley's A Heinz Beck restaurant 18th Dec. It is not a venue we frequent often as we are not in the wealth bracket of most of your patrons; however, it was a great choice for our Xmas treat to ourselves :-) Can I just say, the front of house team are superb; courteous, attentive, friendly, but not intrusive. The food was divine, but what I like about the menu is that there are sufficient delicious choices available for me to want to come back again, and again, and happily choose something completely different for each course. All in all, a fantastic night out, and…….I will be back! Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all. Kind regards"

  • "Just what you would expect from Beck and Lanesborough."
    dined on 17/12/2013
  • "I went to Aspley's with some friends and had the TT 3 course + a drink deal. The setting is grand and definitely has the wow factor. The food is first class and so it the service."
    dined on 18/12/2013
  • "My husband and I decided to try Apsley's for our anniversary and what a night out it was. The food was beautiful, the service attentive but not obstrusive and the ambiance set the tone for a lovely romantic evening. We were initially thinking of having a three course meal but ended up having the seven course tasting menu and i'm glad we did. The food was delicious especially the signature dish Fagotelli Carbonara. I am not a food critique so will not even attempt to be one but the explosion of flavours on each of the dishes was sublime. If you ever need to take someone on a romantic night out for a special occasion, this is the place to go."

  • "Having eaten at La Pergola I've been keen to eat at Beck's London restaurant. Whilst it may not be 3* it surpasses it's 1*! As a special treat for a dear friend, it was wonderful. Rome it may not be, but the food was reminiscent of La Pergola and the pumpkin ravioli was superb!! The only mar was the service. Whilst attentive, it was aloof and at times obnoxious. Still, if you would like a taste of La Pergola, there's no need to fly to Rome!"
    dined on 16/12/2013
  • "The food was below standard. I had the pumpkin soup but it didn't taste like any of pumpkin soup I have ever tasted. It was not a bit sweet but quite salty instead. I let my friend to tasted it. The mentality was shared. I only had 4 spoons and that was it. However, the service was very good there. When the waiter saw me hardly drinking my soup, he asked me what went wrong and if I wanted something else instead and he also waived my soup in the bill. I ordered sole for my main. It was wrapped with basil and really looked like a fish finger. It was just ok lack of taste. Overall I would not recommend to any foodies. But I have to say the ambience and the service was very good. Going there for afternoon tea should be great!"
    dined on 17/12/2013
  • "I brought a business partner for lunch at Apsley's. The food and service was excellent and special, and for good value. I will come back again. Portions could be slightly bigger - I've had slightly bigger portions at other fine dining establishments for lunch."
    dined on 17/12/2013
  • "I have been to this place a few times now & the service has gone downhill. My friend and I was there first & there was a queue of people behind us. The head waiter greeted us in offered our coats to the cloak room but pointed it round the corner instead of taking it off us? Another incident I chose 2x glasses of wine for lunch, but when we asked for the the bill they charged us a different glass which cost a lot more. I queried this but he turned around very rudely and said "But you chose this". I could not be bothered to argue & we ended up paying for it. This is not the first time this has happened either. Please sort out your service, all the waiters were so miserable, it does not cost to smile."
    dined on 11/12/2013
  • "Not relevant as I believe it is about to close for 9 months"
    dined on 16/12/2013
  • "Very good food service and an overall excellent experience. Will definitely return."
    dined on 09/12/2013
  • "Very attentive service, beautiful room, very good food, slightly sombre atmosphere."
    dined on 13/12/2013
  • "Had a full 8-course tasting menu here with 5 friends/family - perfect sized group and a most beautiful journey of flavours, textures...showing off H.Beck's culinary prowess, delicacy and inspiration. This is world class, surprising/inventive cuisine, and an experience well worth the expensive price tag. ;)"
    dined on 28/11/2013
  • "Lunch at Apsleys was just about OK. Nothing spectacular although very friendly service. However, this was marred by being overcharged. Coffee was shown as inclusive in the price on the menu but we were charged separately for our coffees on top of the set lunch price. It was sorted out (only because I had noticed that coffee was inclusive when reading the menu - more luck than judgement) but that sort of thing always leaves a doubt in one's mind ! Not a very big deal, I know, but enough to put one off."
    dined on 13/12/2013
  • "The set lunch we enjoyed was consistently superb and, given the quality of the food, excellent value for money. This is London cuisine at its best."
    dined on 13/12/2013
  • "Food was cold. No services. We had to ask for water, menu, bread, the bill at least 3 times each. None of the waitering staff seems to speak nor understand English."
    dined on 10/12/2013
  • "Had a lovely lunch, staff very attentive and professional, look forward to seeing the reincarnation"
    dined on 11/12/2013
  • "We had a lovely lunch and were very well looked after by the entire staff, right from the moment we walked through the front door. There was an abundance of staff in the restaurant, possibly because it was not too busy. The food was excellent, both in terms of flavour and presentation."
    dined on 09/12/2013
  • "The service staff were amazing. So attentive, very courteous, friendly and helpful. Sommelier was fantastic. The food was very 'chefy' but not amazing..."
    dined on 09/12/2013
  • "This is the ideal restaurant for celebrating a special occasion. The ambience is grand, the service is very attentive and the food is of a high standard as you would expect for the lanesboro."
    dined on 06/12/2013
  • "The food was disappointing this time. It maybe that this is due to a change of chef. Service etc extremely good."
    dined on 07/12/2013
  • "Light and yet delicious Italian Food that is rather hard to come by. This is the second time we went there and it not only reinforced our view towards the restaurant but also delighted us further with delicate food and very professional yet friendly service. highly recommending this!"
    dined on 08/12/2013
  • "For lovers of top-quality food, this restaurant excels. Hidden within the meal are complimentary surprise courses which I will not spoil. Perfectly balanced attention of service and a beatiful dining room. A true gastronomic experience."
    dined on 01/11/2013
  • "venue is stunning, food is sophisticated, delicious and has been given lots of attention. the turkey with breadcrust was the tenderest turkey i have ever put into my mouth and the thin breadcrust was just unbelievably crunchy and delicate. there were two very small complimentary dishes as well which add to the overall enjoyment of the experience. unlimited bread throughout. staff were very friendly and patient. too bad it's going to be under refurbishment for the coming year. will definitely return afterwards."
    dined on 04/12/2013
  • "Very nice restaurant with a nice ambience but exceptional service and good food."
    dined on 07/12/2013
  • "Apsley's is set within the opulent surroundings of the Lanesborough hotel. You would think that is a plus, but it actually detracts from the experience. There were 3 doormen at the entrance, all busy talking amongs themselves without a single one actually attending to the doors. The cloakroom assistant was unfriendly to say the least. The restaurant service was ok but not exactly contributing to an exceptional experience. In contrast to the unfriendly hotel staff and clumsy service, the food was absolutely excellent. Dishes were nicely presented, inventive and tasty."
    dined on 07/12/2013
  • "Dining at Apsley is a stellar experience. It is located in a beautiful space with nice decor, but the food is the real star. The tasting menu reflects the brilliance of Heinz Beck. A marvelous fusion of flavors. The wine pairings are equally brilliant and perfectly matched each course. The service is perfect. No doubt it is expensive, but worth it if you want a sublime meal."
    dined on 28/11/2013
  • "I was looking forward to eating here, but was extremely disappointed with the quality and taste of food! My starter was a salmon with asparagus the dressing tasted like it came out of a cheap bottle you'd get from Tesco which made everything taste of it, Yuk! My main was so small I wondered where the other half was!! I had turkey which wasn't that much better than Bernard Mathews, awfully overly priced wine menu, didn't even have a Argentinian Malbec .... so so disappointed I had to stay quiet as not to upset my fellow dinners. I would avoid this restaurant at all cost if you looking for a taste experience! The only thing that was 'ok' here was the dessert, service and décor. For people with more money than sense!"
    dined on 05/12/2013
  • "All I can say is absolutely fabulous. Visited on Saturday lunchtime with 5 girl friends for a Birthday lunch. We all agreed that the food was amazing, the staff were fabulous and the overall experience was the best afternoon we had had out all year. The wine is a little pricey but seeing as the food deal was so reasonable it wasn't an issue. Will be back as soon as it reopens in 2014"
    dined on 30/11/2013
  • "Well, I've been to Apsleys many times and never been disappointed. The Lanesborough is a very special place in London and now I understand it is closing on 20 December for 12 months for refurbishment. Go there before it is too late!"
