[NOTE to Tripadvisor: Galileo Restaurant is no more. The area the restaurant and bar area used to occupy has been gutted and completely renovated. Both the physical space and the menu are now completely different. It is time to delete Galileo and start up a new listing for Bistro Remy]
Bistro Remy is the new signature restaurant in the Langham Hotel. The hotel had been known as The Observatory and was part of the Orient Express group. Galileo was its restaurant. Galileo was designed with an old world theme and featured quite an exotic menu.
The new Bistro Remy is light and airy. It is also quite a bit larger as the new owner has opened up what had been three distinct rooms into one open plan area. I felt it was much more comfortable.
One of the staff put it quite well when he said the aim was to make both the restaurant and the menu “accessible.” Where Galileo had a menu with dishes that were obscure to most, Bistro Remy offers very high quality but mostly familiar choices.
I would almost never put in a review for a hotel restaurant, but just mention the restaurant in my comments on the hotel itself. In this case I really do think Bistro Remy has earned its own place, so on this occasion I’m making an exception.
