We went for lunch. The "Menu Gourmande" with wine pairings was very good. But our enjoyment was not what it could have been because the service was not what we have come to expect from Galvin. We had no complaint about the staff, they were...More

Dear Loshalp, thank you for your review. I'm afraid, as with all restaurants, December is the busiest time of the year and inevitably service will be fairly frenetic, however we are sorry this marred your experience. We hope you will visit us again in quieter...More

The food is really good, it is indeed a michelin star restaurant with extremely reasonable prices. However, the menu is mostly meat-oriented. There was not a single dish of fish unfortunately, making the overall experience quite heavy. However, the service is very good and it...More

This has been one of my favorite London restaurants for many years and it continues to offer excellent cuisine, friendly professional service and a great atmosphere with reasonable prices for London. Be naughty as I was and enjoy their Rum Baba!!

Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it

Description
The original restaurant to be opened by the Galvin brothers, the Bistrot was an overnight success with food critics and customers alike. Bistrot de Luxe has won several prestigious awards, amongst them Best French Restaurant for 2 years running, as well as top awards from the AA and Tatler Magazine. With their Michelin-starred backgrounds, Chris and Jeff Galvin bring top quality French cuisine at affordable prices, with their flair for sourcing the best seasonal ingredients, and over 30 years of culinary experience between them. Today, the bistrot still retains much of its original ethos. Chef Patron Chris Galvin offers a seasonally-inspired French menu, comprising many bistrot classics. Few restaurants in London have managed to emulate the success of this timeless classic.
