Critical acclaim has been heaped upon Galvin La Chapelle, a true destination restaurant and with good reason. This fabulous dining spot, just off of London’s famous Bishopsgate is the work of celebrated Chef-Restaurateur brothers, Chris and Jeff Galvin, and epitomises their approach to designing and running restaurants in every sense. Indeed, Galvin La Chapelle has all the wow-factor of Windows with the stylish refinement of Galvin Bistrot de Luxe while carving out its own very unique character at the same time. The interior is truly special, as is the food – cosmopolitan, continental and wholly elegant every step of the way, creative but familiar, special but unpretentious – no wonder Galvin La Chapelle was named Tatler’s Restaurant of the Year 2010 and AA Best London Restaurant 2010.

My husband and I have been going to La Chapelle for a number of years. Food is always of a good standard, and this time was no exception. However, prices have gone up sharply - our bill was well over £200 for 4 for Sunday lunch and only one of us had wine. I thought the portions were rather on the mean side as well, with just one thin slice of roast beef for Sunday lunch, and half s poached pear for dessert! Can do better on value for money!

We were a party of 6 adults for Sunday lunch. The day was cold, but the welcome warm, and the room temperature comfortable despite its large scale. There's a definite wow factor with the room too. The table was a good size, and the music seemed a little loud at first but receded into the background as more people arrived. We had the set menu which was very good value for the quality, taste and presentation of the food. Lovely bread too. The service was very professional but friendly.
Just over a bottle of good wine between us, water, tea/coffee and service pushed the bill to £62 a person. Not cheap, but a very enjoyable meal which felt like a treat. Somewhere we'd all go to again.

Guests are warmly welcomed into the restaurant’s bar area. Vaulted ceilings, brightly-lit bar and an intimate dining experience awaits diners. Get ready for a delicious dinner and the knowledge staff is on hand to offer suggestions. Tip: There’s a 3-course menu that delivers an unforgettable meal.

My wife and I dine at La Chapelle quite a lot as its long been her favourite restaurant. It rarely disappoints and this recent visit found them at the top of their game providing exquisite food, reasonably priced wine and outstanding service. My wife has already chosen it for her forthcoming birthday with the family but I know we'll be back again before then!

Galvin La Chapelle combines impeccable yet friendly service with an outstanding menu and truly delicious food, beautifully presented. I couldn't fault the entire experience. The maitre d' Franco should be declared a national treasure.

One of my favourite restaurants and the food, wine and ambience were everything I’ve come to expect. Service was less than perfect on this occasion, but I’ve contacted the Manager and he sent me just the sort of response I would expect from the person in charge of such an outstanding restaurant.

Extremely welcoming from the moment you set foot in the door, the friendly, warm and helpful waiters have a genuine passion for food that guide you through the course of the night.

The food is honest and compelling, with a French cuisine that’s both intriguing and comforting.

Would very much recommend to those who are looking to experience Michelin quality food without being overwhelmed by gourmet pomp.
