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.

We arrived and were greeted by friendly staff. We had drinks in the bar before being escorted through to the restaurant. I had requested a table by the window but were given another location. We opted for a deluxe tasting menu and a standard tasting menu. The food we waited for approx. 25 minutes which we felt was too long. The dessert however was excellent. The wines selected for the Deluxe tasting menu were all very good and complimented the food very well; in addition, the sommelier was very helpful and really knew his stuff. All in all we had a very good experience. I remember the Windows on the World restaurant and missed the live music and dancing which used to go on and would certainly come back if there was live music to enjoy.

I thought our taster menu at Galvin at Windows was a very good overall experience. The food was well up to expectations and the service was excellent. The ambience was fine, though the layout of the restaurant means you might not get the full 'windows' experience depending on where you sit. I preferred the view from the bar, which on the lovely evening we went was stunning. The one downside for me was when the slightly confusingly configured bill came and I felt I was being nudged towards leaving a tip over and above the standard 12.5%. I left the extra gratuity part blank (as I deemed the 12.5% sufficient) and it seemed from the reaction of our really nice waiter that he thought we'd been unhappy somehow. So I left the restaurant feeling confused, a little downbeat and a tad embarrassed, and that's not the feeling I wanted to go home with.

Beautiful setting and delicious food. Food was surprisingly spicy, which was good for us, but might be an issue for those less used to spicy food. Portions in tasting menu were quite big, particularly the earlier courses, which meant we were a bit too full to enjoy the amazing meat course. Overall a wonderful experience.

Booked the restaurant specifically asking for a table on the window since it was a special occasion, got a table in the middle of the restaurant with no view whatsoever! When asked why since there were many tables free on the windows at that time, they’ve said that they cannot guarantee the table position, without giving any further detail... looking at a menu they had just an option for vegetarian, unbelievable that in the 2019 you find just a vegetarian option... From a restaurant of that range you would expect more choices for a vegetarian/vegan.

In addition very harassing waiters, I couldn’t even have a single conversation with my partner since interrupted I've been interrupted many times by waiters, I’ve counted and in half an hour a some waiter interrupted us more than 15 times! Ridiculous !!!

Very small portions, and the quality of the food was very scarce, a 25€ per person average Italian restaurant has much better quality than this one.

I can only suggest this restaurant if you want to throw away money, in that case is a good choice, in any other case maybe is better looking elsewhere ...

Very nice restaurant, good atmosphere, the food was outstanding and the service excellent. I would recommend requesting a seat at the window if you can get it. I regret not doing this as we were seated on one of the inner tables and the view was mostly obscured by a large party seated opposite. The bar is decadent and a nice place to sit and enjoy the views, however the music was a little loud and club like. Swing or Jazz would have seemed more appropriate but that's just my own personal taste.

I've been here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We had an amazing experience.
The food was outstanding, and the wine list was amazing.
What did you expect from a great Micheline Restaurant.
But the best part of our dinner has been our waiter Riccardo, full of attenction, very friendly and helpful.
Definitely he has been the "plus" to our gorgeous dinner.

Galvin at Windows provides an extraordinary all-round experience. The food was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. Every element of my 3 courses seemed close to perfection and I couldn’t imagine how much effort had gone into the preparation. The accompanying wines were also very good, but what takes this excellent dining experience over the top are the stunning views of London from the 28th floor of the Hilton Hotel.

We went to celebrate my mom’s 70th birthday. We ordered brunch set menu, it was brilliant for the price we were paying. A pleasant surprise, they also offered a children menu for my 5 year old daughter, with an amazing goodie bag that kept her entertained. Before, I didn’t imagine such a posh restaurant can be so children friendly too!

Really enjoyed our lunch. We sat overlooking North London and were beside Hyde park so still a lovely view.

I don’t think I realised on booking that only the the three course lunch and Bellini offer was the only offering. This was fine though and our table of 4 adults (& 1 child) were extremely well looked after. We also had a couple of dietary requirements/limitations that were well catered for.

The staff were great and really ‘made’ the occasion. My 7yr old was looked after well so. Was nice for him to receive a child’s activity pack, a ‘bellini’ of his own and the “best chicken bites” he’s ever eaten. It was a very nice surprise to learn that there was no charge for the child’s meal (under 8) Wow!

I was a little disappointed on the decor and it did seem a touch dated. However, food was fab and the staff were friendly, efficient and professional. We really enjoyed it. One thing I would say is please leave the bill in the middle of the table! On a table of 3 women, one child and one man - the bill went to guy! Traditional but unnecessary.

Would certainly recommend to all.

We were treated politely and in a friendly manner from the moment we arrived. My gluten intolerance, my husband's diabetes and a fussy member of our party were accommodated wonderfully and the pace of service was good. Everything was well cooked and presented and the sommelier was perfect even with our very vague requests! Unfortunately some of the desserts we ordered were unavailable but this was more than compensated for with complimentary drinks and a lovely server. The view capped off a lovely celebratory lunch. I would highly recommend Galvin!

One of the best meals we've had, from having a great table in the newly opened bar to dining overlooking Hyde Park to the someliers who guided us knowledgably through the wines that accompanied our 7 course taster menu.

Every course was divine, and the staff were super attentive.

You often have a taster menu and wines and feel tipsy and over full. Galvin at Windows served just enough of each dish and wine.

We will be back. Thank you all at Galvin

Restaurant concept with only 2 hours for dining, creates a very energetic atmosphere, where servants are rushing along the tables.
Food was tasty, but not creative - and especially NOT a Michelin restaurant worthy.
Wine and particularly champagne is very expensive.

While in London my Bride and I celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary at Galvin at Windows. This particular dinner was probably one of the best meals we have ever experienced together. We shared the wine paring offering and each presentation was visually enticing and even tastier. The staff was well versed, attentive, and provided service that was spectacular. The paired wines were from around the globe and highlighted the accompanying dish. We closed this beautiful 28th floor restaurant and then we were allowed back inside the kitchen to experience the balcony views celebrating a beautiful ambiance. A truly wonderful meal that we will always treasure and celebrate. A must London stop for anyone wanting to experience a truly superb dining adventure. We couldn’t be happier!

My wife and I went to Galvin to celebrate a recent promotion. We were very impressed and would recommend! The service was attentive but not over the top, there are great views of London from all over the dining room and the food was well presented and tasty. My lamb in particular was beautifully cooked and the soufflé for dessert was perfect.
