Excellent service, food is delicious (try out the trout). Expensive but OK for this kind of experience. The music was a bit too loud, it's the only minus.

Beautiful setting, and greeted professionally on arrival. However one starter was literally one tomato (albeit three different colours), served with a tiny cube of watermelon and a small slice of ham. Luckily bread is also offered. Partner's starter was more substantial. My chicken main course...More

The third restaurant to be opened by acclaimed chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin, La Chapelle has been consistently praised, winning no less than 8 top restaurant awards in its first year, including AA London Restaurant of the Year, and Tatler magazine's Restaurant of the Year. Chef Patron, Jeff Galvin, provides a menu of modern French cuisine, gaining a Michelin star in the 2011 Red Guide, just a year after the restaurant opened. There is also a menu gourmand, prix fixe lunch, early dinner menu, and Sunday Roast lunch menu. The service, under the direction of Alessandro Piombino and his team, effortlessly combines warm, friendly and attentive hospitality with a fine sense of tradition and decorum, in keeping with the grandeur of this Grade II-listed building. The restaurant is one of the few restaurants in London to hold a vertical list of Hermitage La Chapelle wines.
