We went to Bibendum for lunch expecting the old-style restaurant (which was fine, but maybe a bit tired) and were pleasantly surprised by the new enterprise. The meet and greet at the main entrance was charming and set the scene for a level of service...More

Lunch at the oyster bar, underneath Bibendum, is always great. Slick and friendly service, great food and not overly expensive.

I looked at the menu AND, the prices and walked away. I had a 3 people in tow and £250 for 3 people, simply was out of the question.

My wife reviewed the restaurant with little enthusiasm. I couldn’t agree more. The place is really rather pretentious nowadays. What a shame. After her criticism, I didn’t think there was much more to say. Just to prove me wrong the restaurant booking system leapt into...More

When booking, a credit card is required. Cancellation at least 48 hours before or you're charged £50 per person - at lunchtime. Probably more for dinner. Never mind, we said, even though we usually go out of our way to avoid such jumped up restaurants....More

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal

Description
Bibendum, the flagship of the Conran gastro empire is housed in the historic Michelin building on groovy Brompton Cross. As you might expect, it delivers topnotch French food with impeccable service in a spacious chic setting. In fact, the food is so delicious that one is in danger of leaving the premises feeling like the Michelin man himself. Fabulous wine list to complement the menu and an ideal location to indulge in a little post lunch shopping on the cross or down Walton Street. With a set menu for lunch at £36 you can enjoy a 'grande bouffe' without a grand bill.
