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.

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Secondly, almost all the less expensive wines on the list have been withdrawn.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 .

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.

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

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.
