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.

Great food and lovely ambiance. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is we couldn't get a table by the windows to enjoy the view. So I asked the manager if we could take a picture using the view as a background, he promised to get back to me and never did. I think a simple Yes or No would have been better than him avoiding us for the rest of the night.

Beautiful restaurant on the 28th floor of a hotel on Park Lane. Terrific views and wonderful food, beautifully served. Four of us from around the world met for lunch and were there for 3 and 1/2 hours.....nonstop conversations and discreetly tasty 3 course meal.

Terrific place for a special meal.

Excellent return visit to Galvin at Windows, but first time for Sunday lunch rather than dinner or weekday lunch. Highly recommended. In general I much prefer the restaurant for lunch as it is a bit noisy for dinner at the weekends because of the DJ in their bar.

Menu could have been more exciting. However the dishes that were eventually served were quite good. (Pork and kingfish starters and Hake and Venison for mains). It was slightly cramped and overall was ok. Staff were great and the service was excellent.

Cannot find any fault with this gem. The service was amazing and we were made to feel as important as the next person who was having their dinner whilst we went there to have a dessert to wrap up our birthday celebrations. My husband had a delightfully beautiful Pavlova and I had a cappuciono. To our surprise we were presented with a plate each of a delightful little cake with Happy Birthday written on the plate.
Upon leaving, our waiter presented us with a jar full of amazing marshmallows and we were given a couple of boxes to bring some home.
Thank you to everyone at Galvin for this wonderful experience and we hope to spend our anniverssary meal there next year. Beautiful setting with amazing views too.

This is our first time since the refurb. The layout is much more appealing than before in both the restaurant and the bar. The staff were all very attentive with pleasing personalities and seemed genuinely interested in our welfare. Food was tasty, even though the menu was a little confusing regarding prices. Nevertheless, the experience was a positive one for my wife and I. And I'm happy to say, the service was just as pleasing as the views. We will definitely be back before our next anniversary.

The food and wines were good but I am disappointed about the service.
We have decided to go for the tasting menu only after one of the waiters confirmed us there wouldn’t have been pieces of onion in our dishes.
Unfortunately some of them came with pieces of onion, they only said “sorry” when I mentioned the issue.
A bit disappointing, I’ve been to Michelin starred restaurants before and they have always been able to make sure I would eat their dishes, even for the tasting menu.

I had lots of expectations, but unfortunately I left disappointed.

The main disappointment wasn't the service, which was almost impeccable, but the overall experience and the food that, besides the location and the, a bit dated/not updated, luxurious environment, wasn't memorable at all.

We have tried 6 dishes, and only 2 out of 6 were at a level that was anywhere near acceptable for a Michelin starred restaurant.

The bill would have been proportionate/appropriate if the food would have been good enough.

This is one of those classic restaurants which have forgotten the food is much more important than the venue.

We have very much appreciated the help of Riccardo/Roberto, the Italian waiter, though.

Shame..

We had the pleasure of having dinner at Galvin at Windows twice during our vacation in London. Both times the service was great, the food wonderful and the atmosphere was amazing. The view of the London skyline is stunning. The food is creative and tasty. The highlight of both visits was Manuel. He spoiled us and made our dining experience better than we thought possible. It’s a true gem!
