Description: In a delightful location overlooking Hyde Park, Island Grill is a stylish split-level restaurant and bar within the Lancaster London Hotel. Understated contemporary decor doesn't compete with the outstanding views of the Italian Gardens, while the all-day menu offers a cosmopolitan take on British classics. A relaxed buzz completes the atmosphere of friendly sophistication.

Plus points: impeccable service from all - from the gentleman who squeezed us in despite being full to the waitress and waiter - Service really was top notch.
Beautiful building - extremely clean
Quick service of food
Minus points: whilst I realise we’re in central London, just under £16 for cheeseburger and chips was, I thought, expensive.
Frozen chips .....come on, letting the excellent waiting staff down serving frozen chips!!!!
12.5 per cent service charge added to the bill - always a minus in my book - I prefer to decide how much to give
All in all it was a good experience with great cocktail too but the food was just a bit average for what we paid ...

I once described the Island Grill as the 'hidden jewel in West London', but it has now been discovered, yet has not lost any of its appeal; in ambience, fine food and friendly staff.
We were looked after by Sam, who was discreetly attentive, friendly and very willing to engage in conversation and have a friendly chat. WE was at pains to make sure that we enjoyed our the culinary experience in comfortable, friendly surroundings, which had a very relaxed feel about it.
The choice on the menu ideally suits my wife's and my palate, she enjoying white meat and I, fish. The meals were well presented, with a range of taste experiences on the plate. Desserts were tantalisingly presented and finished the meal nicely.
We look forward to our next visit.

Very nice atmosphere, good music, excellent service and taste food.
Really recommend the place to dinner. It isn't too expensive.
A place to go dinner alone or friends.

We had a food package at the Royal Lancaster hotel which entitled us to a 3 course meal at this restaurant every night of our stay.We found the food to be of a high quality, but as we were staying a few nights, the Manager Kabila, allowed us to change from that set menu and choose whatever we wanted from the main menu.We also were given glasses of fizz to celebrate our anniversary. Cannot fault the service we were given and everyone working “went the extra mile” to make our dining memorable.We also were given 20%discount off anything else we ordered (including drink) Will we be back.....we sure will!
