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.

Angelus provides an exquisite dining experience in a comfortable setting. A touch pricey, but I have always found it well worth the price.

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.

Nice food, no atmosphere at all in the restaurant. The service is so so but definitely it isn't 1 star Michelin service.

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.

We have eaten at Angelus often. We will not again. The manager was brusque and rude to us and to the servers. The food was mediocre. Angelus has changed for the worse. Unfortunate. We dined on the evening of March 8

First time visit and enjoyed it very much. Our party increased from 3 to 6 at short notice but was accommodated with a smile and no problem. The food was very very nice and the staff friendly and efficient. I can wholeheartedly recommend.

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.

We had a great dinner at Angelus two years ago and decided to meet good friends there on our recent trip to London. All four of us ordered the tasting menu which was very good with nice and fairly priced wine pairings. This is a wonderfully authentic French bistro.

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.

Beautiful setting with a good menu. But the wine list is ridiculously expensive with ALL the entry level wines unavailable.
A quiet, mid-week evening menu but the restaurant felt like it had just changed hands or was about to close down.
Very disappointing.

Food was amazing - especially the octopus salad (grilled to.perfection) and the souffle - it was so fluffy and matches sooo well with the pistachio ice cream and the passionfruit ice cream. Managers of the resturant as well as the sommelier were so accomodating and friendly - made you feel right at home.

We had been before for lunch and, on a sunny day, chose to eat outside. The road has been closed off, so it is relatively peaceful. On Thursday it was very quiet and we were the only diners outside. I had the table d'hote with rather nice cauliflower soup, followed bty a tasty aubergine main course. Wines here are very expensive. Service was ultra attentive

As ever a fabulous meal at Angelus. I had the summer pistou to start and my partner had the traditional scallops - fabulous as ever. We both had the fish for main - tuna was rare - just perfect and nicely seared on the outside and I had the monkfish very nice. Dessert was fabulous - I had the honey and rosemary souffle with ice cream - very naughty, but did not disappoint. I've been going to Angelus for 8 years and it's always very very special
