We found this restaurant when looking for somewhere to have breakfast before an early flight, the first proper restaurant we found was busy so we thought we'd wander a little further & found this place, so much better, a little smarter, much less busy with great service and food, fab, can't say much else :-)

This is a really place to grab a glass of wine and something to eat before your flight. It may be slightly more expensive than the pub but it's a lot quieter and much better quality of food, drink and service.

I must say this place represents the best value at Heathrow, menu is good, champagne by the glass is really good, normally have breakfast here pre flight, last coupke of visits service has been good especially considering how insanely busy it gets.

We had a 4 hour break between our flights and we decided to have breakfast in Heathrow airport. The Oriel is by far the best option out there, the decoration is perfect, seats really comfy and the staff is really nice, specially our friend Naga! Go for an Oriel Breakfast and a large cup of coffee, you'll never go wrong... More

Extremely poor service. Ordered a glass of water and 2 coffees, and practically all the orders were forgotten somewhere on the way. Had a breakfast as well which was very poor. Go absolutely somewhere else!!

I came to oriel for a lite dinner and a drink before going on holiday. The service was God and the restaurant is classic French/gatsby themed in decor. I ordered the modules and frites, generous portion and tasted delicious. Would definitely come again!

Surely I'll check out other similar places when I fly through here again, but the service at "Oriel" is so good that it completely covers for the obvious "so-so" quality of the food and the menu at whole.

Lovely bar in terminal 3. Enjoyed our pre flight drinks. Didn't feel rushed and the service was very good.
