Located high up on the 28th floor of the London Hilton at 22 Park Lane, Galvin at Windows restaurant and bar has become one of the capital’s most talked-about destination dining venues since its opening in 2006. Head Chef Joo Won and Chef Patron Chris Galvin have created seasonally inspired menus based around modern French haute cuisine that have now earned the restaurant its first, much-deserved Michelin Star. Renowned for its peerless views over the capital, including iconic sites like Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, Galvin at Windows is a restaurant where honest food and genuine hospitality are already a tradition after just a few short years. Because of the elegance of the room and the jaw-dropping 360-degree views, Galvin at Windows is certainly a destination restaurant with fine service and all the trimmings. But, clever Galvin staff, the set lunch menu and bar express menu bring this sublime French cuisine within reach.

Private Dining

Located on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane and enjoying views across London, Galvin at Windows is the ultimate destination restaurant. The Balcony, which is located by the bay windows, makes the most of its position, offering a view across Park Lane, Hyde Park and West London.

You get what you pay for. Exquisite cuisine at an exquisite price. But it is well worth it. Captains Tonino And Giacomo make your visit a pleasure. One of the finest dining spots in London. And in daylight and summer hours, the view is fantastic.

Great Sunday lunch and great experience at Galvin at Windows!
I booked a table for my mum and I to celebrate her coming to visit me in London from Italy and I could not have done a better choice. From the moment you walk in the atmosphere is very welcoming and my eyes were caught by the soft colour scheme of white and beige in the venue alongside the large windows overlooking Hyde Park: just stunning!
We ordered a 3 courses meal and all I can say it is that the starters are good but the mains and the dessert are superb! My recommended dish is the fillet of halibut which had just the right texture, the right flavour and the right presentation; and, if you love chocolate fondant, you will be delighted by their dessert!
The staff is extremely attentive and smiley and the service was smooth and not rigid: the waiter that was looking after us was very friendly and took time to chat to us and made us feel very comfortable and at ease. It is hard to see a positive behaviour that is genuine when you dine in Michelin Star restaurant!
Good value for money, it is not a restaurant where you would go everyday but the prices are reasonable and if you are willing to pay just a little bit extra from time to time this is the right place to go!
On the overall, I find the restaurant perfect for a classy venue that wants to be warm and relaxing at the same time with a wide offer of dishes and wines.
I would definitely book again, maybe with my friends to experience the evening ambience!

Over priced... For 2 course meal bottle water, 1 juice and one glass of wine. About 200£..portion was tiny for many so got home need it to cook again for my man. We didn't have the best view from the window as well(but it's our fault I didn't booked table near window). I don't think so I will be back as even menu selection on valentine week was poor

The restaurant is very trendy, the level of cuisine is high and quite creative, the service is good, the location is modern and has a spectacular view of the city. I did not like the menu, not very explained and not very varied. I had to call a waiter to explain the dishes. Price higer than the same level.

Apart from the mildly irritating extra charges on the most popular choices in the Menu Prestige, there is simply nothing to fault . All the dishes were superb and of heady flavour, the wine we left to a 'wonder woman' head sommeliere who found a superb Malbec for us of excellent value, the service was spot-on without ever being intrusive and as soon as a better table became available (after our cocktails at table) we were whisked off without even having to ask! If the kitchen enjoy their magic work just half as much as the waiting staff, then there is the answer to the perfect evening.

Due to road accident problem, we were delayed by an hour, I phoned ahead to staff and they happily accommodate and held the table for me.
It was a happy day and good lunch at Galvin - many thanks.

Really enjoyed experience, food was very flavourul. The only advice would say to explore better before comming, how menu works.. Internet didn't informed us about more expencier menu for the day we came, and had to choose a bit pricy options, plus missunderstood menu and got more food then we needed, whice leed to paying double the price from what we planned to spend. For us it didn't damaged experience, us we decided to take it, but for some it might, so take an extrata look. Also, all prices are without VAT, which is another donwside, as you get the extra shock at the end. Maybe it was mentioned somewhere, but I want to relax and not think about what I should be cosious during experience, so would expect stuff to inform me if I'm new there.
Everything else, pleasure.

I have been visiting Galvins since it opened. The service was amateurish, and the waiters poor, slow and uninterested. The food was worse. The starters were very tasty, but the 'brunch' a la carte menu was delivered to a standard which seemed like an afterthought. I have never, nor hope to see again, a chateaubriand as poor. To add insult, a gravy like substance was poured all over it. All main courses were second rate, including the burger! Even the wine was not decanted properly leaving glasses full of sediment. The restaurant is beautiful, as are the views. Please try and make the food equally as superlative...again.

Galvin at Windows is a lovely dining space with awesome views. The service was attentive and polite. The food was excellent. Wine can be a bit expensive but there are a couple which don’t break the bank. A great place to impress friends or colleagues. The special menu was good value. Added bonus, we got to meet Fred.

Amazing service, superb food. Brilliant with me being gluten free! Only improvements would be to open the blinds as soon as the sun went round to enjoy those amazing views and a bit more jus or gravy with the main meals, although when we asked it was there within seconds! otherwise brilliant.

Loads of good reviews on this place so I was expecting more. The food was very average.. we had the 3 course and Bellini for £33 deal, we had olives which tasted like they were pickled from a jar and a side dish to share (a tiny pot of mash) and a bottle of sparking water and the bill was just shy of £100.
The food was well cooked it just lacked a bit of oomph and flavour. Just felt a bit dated.
No amuse bouche offered either which surprised us with a meal of this kind.
The postcards were a nice touch, the views were nice, staff were friendly and attentive enough. But sadly I wouldn’t return or really recommend.

Every table has a gorgeous view, and the food was outstanding as well as the wait staff. We enjoyed a drink at the bar prior to dinner which has a great atmosphere as well. We were just enjoying a nice dinner out on the town, but there were a number of groups celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. This is a great location for a celebration. We'll definitely be back.
