L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon is one hot culinary destination. Hailing from the most Michelin starred chef in the world, it presents stunning Spanish and Japanese-infused French cooking. The restaurant features counter seating, where guests can admire the theatre style kitchen. Our Executive Chef Jeremy Page’s mastery shines through dishes such as the divine caramelised quail stuffed with foie gras, truffled langoustine ravioli, sea bream carpaccio with lime and Espelette pepper, and magical puddings like almond cremeux with ivory chocolate and pomegranate sorbet. An exceptional wine list and attentive service create a special dining experience.
The private dining room ‘La Cuisine’ is the perfect venue, be it for a corporate dinner, a product launch or a birthday party. The specially devised menus are offered in a bright and welcoming space.
The terrace bar offers an intimate and elegant space to enjoy a few drinks by the fireplace or a cigar by the outdoor heaters.

    Food wasn’t as good as expected . Dishes we ordered had flat taste except for foeigras. The British sommelier’s service was not up to professional standard to be expected from in the high end restaurant , rather in the average pub.

    These guys really know what they are doing. Service is attentive but unobtrusive. Food is magnificent. The tasting menu allows you to try a different range of foods and just watching the chef's do their work is a treat in itself. A brilliant place for a special occasion - certain to be memorable!

    It was a bad experience for me. I was alone that night because my husband didn’t like French food and what happens? didn’t enjoy my experience with the staff. The waiter was inefficient and lazy. The girl that was giving me the foods, not friendly and felt like she didn’t enjoy her job and not smiling and could hardly understand her when she talked and described the food selection. We’ve been foodies for a long time, been to the best restaurants in the world and can spot a good restaurant and crew the moment we step in and have a seat. Food was not great on top of that. Total waste of time and money. I still gave 20% tip which I regretted. Will never go back and that’s it and will tell my hairdresser that this restaurant she recommended was inferior and badly managed. If only the late Joel knew what’s going on now in his establishment now that’s he’s gone, he’ll be rolling in his grave.

    Wow wow wow. This is an expensive joint but if you get the pre or post theatre deal it is astounding value. I love the amuse bouche of Parmesan foam and foie gras mouse. Other memorable dishes include the famous mashed potato which is about 80 per cent butter. I enjoyed it so much that they brought me another which was very kind. When I have saved up enough money I will go back and have the full a la carte menu!

    Dinner without memories. Dark and sad mood. High level technical kitchen: fresh products, cooked at the point but without soul. Done exactly like the script. Professional service. I hope that you get better.

    Great buzzy atmosphere with super decor. The menu is varied with taster menu portions or main course. 2 of us chose 5 taster dishes to share while 2 people had a starter and main. The food was delicious. Unfortunately, despite allowing two hours we ran out of to have desserts and coffees. The drinks service is crazy and a real let down. They won’t leave the wine bottle on the table and when you are able to get served they only put a small amount in the glass. Having forgotten a coke order we went through both courses with no wine, no water nor soft drinks, only managing to get a small drink between courses. Real shame at the high price and for excellent food. Disappointing as we left the restaurant with probably half a bottle of wine we had paid for sat somewhere on their bar! The second set of taster dishes was only half eaten as we were too thirsty.

    We came pre theatre, and ate at the bar. Think it's the best restaurant experience we've ever had (and we eat out an awful lot). The atmosphere was calm and welcoming, the menus and wine lists offered a great range and the staff were just lovely. The food and wine were just gorgeous, and sitting at the bar gave us the opportunity to watch our food being prepared. A truly fantastic experience!
