About Galvin Bistrot de Luxe
Marylebone restaurant Galvin Bistrot de Luxe was the first in the hugely successful Galvin stable, and the first to win the Galvin brothers their reputation of outdoing the French at classic bistro cooking. Critics and customers consistently rate the top quality French cuisine and affordable prices - the prixe fixe menus represent particularly good value, especially for this chichi area of London. Chef patron Chris Galvin and head chef Tom Duffil have created an appealing seasonal menu with plenty of French bistro classics and, along with efficient and professional bow-tied staff, have created a very reliable dining destination you’ll be coming back to again and again. Décor at Galvin Bistrot de Luxe is elegant and pared back – leather banquettes and mahogany panelling line the walls and the atmosphere is always bustling – perfect for enjoying full-flavoured French dishes like crab lasagne, garlicky snails, wonderfully soft braised pork cheeks.

Galvin Bistrot de Luxe Ratings and Reviews
We booked Galvin's on a recommendation and we weren't disappointed. It was a birthday celebration for a friend. The staff were welcoming, food absolutely lovely and the service excellent. I loved the ambience of the restaurant. All in all an excellent evening and their set menu is amazing value for money.
Galvin's on Baker Street has long been a favourite lunchtime restaurant in our family. Service, food and wine are always immaculate and the set lunch with a glass of prosecco is great value. A la carte prices would mean going a bit less often, unfortunately! Highly recommended always.
Dinner at Galvin - Prix Fixe and Menu Gourmand with wine accompaniment. Really excellent French cooking, but unpretentious and, thankfully, served in sensible portions (i.e. not Nouvelle Cuisine). The four-course Menu Gourmand featured a tomato and watermelon salad, a combination that worked surprisingly well, followed by a very tasty, but not overpowering, soused mackerel, then a main course of slow-cooked lamb in a rich sauce, cooked to perfection and again, full of flavour. The chilled fruit soup made a refreshing finish. The accompanying wines were well paired with the courses, good quality and remarkably cheap. Prix Fixe menu started with the best Gazpacho I have tasted for a long time followed by a delicately seasoned chicken dish and then strawberries with cream, yoghurt, white chocolate and pistachio - another combination that worked well. Both menus are extremely good value. Highly recommended.
Having been to this restaurant a few times before, I thought it a good place to entertain good friends. The service was exemplary and so was the first course. The second course was somewhat dissapointing in rhAt the poached cod lacked flavour.
The wine we chose was poured from a bottle with no label which lead me to believe that it had been decanted from a vat in the kitchen This became rather embarrassing for my wife and me in front of our friends.
Altogether the final bill for £214 for a two course lunch was excessive.
Needless to say that we shan't be patronising Galvins Bistro de Luxe again
