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.

Private Dining

For private functions and business meetings of any occasion and time of day, further to the main restaurant we have two unique separate dining areas. The private dining room caters for up to 20 guests and lies in the vaults of Angelus.

Excellent food and service. Extensive and expensive wine list although we (three on on table) did very nicely with three half bottles (one white, two red) which were also excellent.

I had not been to Angelus restaurant before and wanted to find a really good restaurant in Paddington to take a client. After some research and advice I booked a table at Angelus and certainly wasn't disappointed. I have dined out with this client before at some very nice restaurants such as the Oxo Tower, so the pressure was on to maintain the standard that we had both become accustomed.
We were both delighted with the experience. A very pleasant room, superb food with a menu that was difficult to choose from given that there was so much choice, and fantastic attentive service.
I will certainly be going there again, and would recommend it without hesitation.

I used to have dinner in this restaurant many years ago. It feels like the place is stuck in a former glory. Food was very average and not worth the premium being paid.
It is a shame to see what has become of this place I used to love.

Dinner at Angelus was quite special for us. There were fond memories of previous family occasions and high expectations of service quality, ambience, and cuisine. All of these expectation were exceeded. The wine service was careful and well balanced with the meal, the service was attentive without being intrusive, and our dishes were prepared to perfection. We were able to have a quiet conversation without the energetic noise in so many other locations, the conviviality of the staff made us feel completely at home as with friends, and the overall dining experience was superb. Prices were quite reasonable, which added to the value of the meal. I look forward to frequent return visits with this gem of a restaurant.

One of the best lunches I have had in London, well prepared food, discrete service and the occasional sound of horses hooves on cobble stones outside the window. Delightful.

It's hard to find anywhere near Paddington Station for a high quality lunch, but Angelus fits the bill perfectly. Tucked down a quiet side street you'll find an oasis of calm, with great service and a wide ranging menu.

Very nice with a great wine list. The starters were amazing but the main courses were ok...the service was old style elegant. This is not a casual place; business attire is what you should aim for...

Sat outside on the pavement - watched the world go by & enjoyed some classic French cuisine & an excellent red wine with my work colleagues. Pleasant & efficient, non-evasive staff. Efficient service without being rushed.

Salmon was only lukewarm and not cooked in the middle and had a slime texture. Nobody asked if the meal was satisfactory, the waitress was very helpful and polite maybe the man who was not as helpful should get a few tips from her. I would eat here again.

The place, and food quality was fabulous.
However one of the wait staff must have gone out side and smoked a joint. His smell over powered even the food. Sad owner would allow this and then have him wait in customers.

Second time here both times food and service outstanding sad this event happened. Ruined a nice meal.

An absolute delight. Perhaps one of London's hidden gems, this restaurant combines excellent, classic French cuisine with with charming ambiance and superb service. It's easy to miss, tucked away in a back street off the Bayswater Road and Hyde Park and close to Lancaster Gate Underground station. Once though its doors you can be assured of a wonderful dining experience conjured by its kitchen and highly professional staff.

If the lamb cutlets had been as rare as the scallops, lunch would have been more as I had anticipated. And the mashed potatoes were watery...

This is the third exceptional meal I have had at Angelus. You can’t fault the cooking.

There are two reasons that I might not return, despite its fabulous cuisine. Firstly, the maximum number of other guests at any one of my three visits were two other tables.

Secondly, almost all the less expensive wines on the list have been withdrawn. I found something just about half decent from the new world for £42 but that was a struggle. This is not the restaurant I am going to be spending £200 - £300, or more, on a bottle. It’s just not that kind of place.

It’s a shame but it feels like the end is inevitable.

We had a lovely meal. All hot and fresh. There were 4 of us. I thought the wine was expensive. There were not many under 50 pounds. However I asked the waiter which was the best red under 50. He recommended one of the cheaper ones at 35 pounds. It was exceptional and well worth the money.

Great restaurant in a neighbourhood tucked away but near Paddington Station. Old World French atmosphere with waiters in proper garb. Menu provides a reasonable amount of options that are all good. Wine list mostly French, but other types as well. Desserts are homemade. Great place for a meeting or night out.

This is a gem of a restaurant set just off Lancaster Gate in a quiet street. Delicious food and attentive service makes it very special. We wanted a late lunch and assumed as the restaurant is open all day and our booking for 1445 was accepted that this was not a problem but it was clear by the lack of other diners that we were outside the normal service times. So there was a lack of ambiance for what was otherwise a lovely meal.

Lovely, romantic restaurant. Classic French cuisine cooked exquisitely. It was quiet on the night we went and perhaps some background music would have helped.

Had a late Saturday reservation--was fairly quiet within. First came here several years ago--was more happening then. The mussels in the Pan Fried Seabass were OK, but did not quite feel part of the meal to me. Solid service.

Strange one to review really - the food was good to very good, the service was perfect, the interior nice. But it gets 2/5 stars from me purely because at these prices, everything has to be exceptional to warrant charging that much, not very good. Unfortunately I didn't feel there was anything exceptional here, including the wine. Very good, but not quite good enough

We enjoyed the refined dinning experience . The service was very diligent and the food was truly outstanding . No one els was dinning so the ambiance was quiet as we were the only customers . I would recommend again although the prices are far from moderate . In fact for lunch it was very expensive .
