Named after the Angelus Bell, this “bistro de luxe” is located in one of London’s last working mews. Formally the site of an old pub, the Art-Déco interiors have been cleverly incorporated into the original architecture of this early 19th century building. Dark wood, sumptuous fabrics and elaborate mirrors help create the atmosphere of a very elegant brasserie, yet the ambiance and service is welcoming and relaxed. Focusing on select favourites, the menu will include starters of Crème brulée au foie gras, followed by examples of fish and meat like Fillet of cod with chorizo, broccoli, grilled spring onions, toasted almond milk and brandade or Roast rump of Salt Marsh lamb, blanquette of shoulder and sweetbreads, seasonal vegetables.
Located next door to the Hyde Park Stables and just minutes from the Park itself, Angelus is the perfect place to enjoy an atmospheric brunch, lunch or dinner, or just a relaxing snack after a stroll through one of the most famous parks in London.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and creativity in their interpretation of French cuisine.

I am not going to say much more than give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

Pretentious. We got the impression they think they are something they’re not. They had run out of the wine i like and our lamb shanks with mash were served barely warm so we had to send it back. No veg with the meal which my friend recalls was included with the meal. Nice decor, but they need to at least cook things fresh instead of heating up. I expected better, it was disappointing.

I loved this place. Beautifully cooked and presented food - delicious sorbets made from real fruit!
It was very quiet as it was a Monday lunchtime so I hope it gets busier in the evenings as it is a Paddington gem!

We celebrated by wife’s birthday in London and had been to Angelus a few years ago and really enjoyed it, the return visit didn’t disappoint. Our group ordered several dishes and everyone said it was outstanding. I had the lamb which fell off the bone. It will continue to be our special occasion restaurant in London.

Beautiful food, beautifully prepared. Everyone enjoyed their choices including a 10 year old who devoured the roast duck. Chef prepared a birthday cake which was a sensation. Perhaps because if the quality rather pricey Quite intimate and not at all noisy. Beautiful Art Deco surroundings

Up market, authentically French. A delight for a quiet and convivial lunch. Attentive and knowledgeable staff. Delicious and beautifully presented food (we ate fish). Gorgeous champagne: a real treat for a long lunch. Expensive, but not excessively so, and well worth it. Definitely a place to revisit - next time will be for red meat and red wine!

Very disappointing. Main courses arrived within 2 minutes of being ordered and were clearly pre-prepared and reheated, although they were not hot. Portion sizes were having a laugh. One of us had to order a starter after completing the main course. The tarte tatin dessert was a travesty and was left uneaten (just gunge no coked apple slices on top, soggy pastry beneath. The head waiter agreed and did not charge for it. Overall, one of the worst meals out the two of us have had for 30 years costing almost £100 including one small glass of wine each.

Great food and an attractive space but restaurant was almost empty. It was a hot Friday evening and I expect this venue is far busier during the week.
Will give it another try on a week night.
Authentic French food and wine with a well-priced fixed menu if that choice happens to suit

A bit disappointing. Good food - but not great. Sediment in my husband's wine glass, no apology or attempt to sort it out. A bit of a flat evening in terms of ambience and service.

My wife and I booked this quiet but very pleasant restaurant for Saturday night dinner. On a cold night it was conveniently close to our hotel. We were not disappointed. The service was friendly and efficient. The food we ordered from a reassuringly small menu was excellent. The wine list was extensive with enough choice to suit most budgets. Certainly worth a visit for those looking for good French bistro style cuisine When in the area again we will certainly go back.

There was a piece of plastic in a crab starter. The lamb shank main was cold in the middle. No real attempt was made to address he issue in the bill. Will not return.

Had my favourite corner table. Food and and service was exceptional. Wine list has just changed with some exciting new changes.

Had a salad and steak. Steak perfectly cooked.

In truth around Paddington there is little to compare to Angelus.

Booked for Friday night and found we were the only two in the Restaraunt Two more people came in late on so no ambience at all. The waiter told us that the closure of the Lancaster hotel and the tube station had badly affected their business.

The food was way below the standard we expected and I will not be going back.

I had visited the Restaraunt before and had a very good experience so was disappointed this time.

Most of the wine was very very expensive. Two of us left our cauliflower soup as it was salty. Because of the cost, we all chose from the set menu at £41. My American friend ordered a sour martini but that is not what she got. We heard from neighbours that they have recently changed hands. As we didn't sample food not on the set menu, we cannot know how good the rest of the repertoire might have been but we were unimpressed with what we ate.
