Amazing dining experience in a great setting. We chose the fixed price lunch menu which at £52.00 pp including 2 glasses of wine and coffee is remarkable value for money. The food was superb both in terms of taste and presentation and service was attentive without being intrusive. Well worth a visit and well worth 2 stars!

My girlfriend and I dropped in for dinner. It was fantastic. A slight confusion about the additional cost of some of the items on the menu, yet this was cleared up and we did not have to pay for that as it wasn't clearly communicated. Staff were great, food was incredible, great atmosphere (and also the Connaught has another great... More

Ate at this restaurant yesterday at lunch time. Everything about this experience was perfect, from the food, the atmosphere to the china. I ate vegetarian and it is rare that such a good choice is offered.

Perhaps we shouldn't take for granted that a place with a two star reputation will deliver .. but we did and we weren't disappointed. The food was great and the seven course tasting menus we created ( a different menu for each) gave great scope for swopping dishes across the table... I know, so lacking in style but we did... More

We had the 5 course tasting menu..the experience of selecting your 5 course on a wooden tablet with food labelled marbles was so much fun. All the courses were great, we had the beet salad, scallops, chicken, tuna, rhubarb/ginger desert...all were beautifully and delicately presented and tasted amazing.

The last time I was here I was very impressed with the attentive and yet efficient serivice. But this time it was tottaly ifferent.The staff seemed to be paying all their attention to the people who came to inspect their tables -- they must have been regulars and came back shortly with their guest.

We walked in lunchtime to a posh Mayfair hotel without knowing what expecting us. I was thinking to myself for some reason that we booked a one star restaurant but retrospectively we found that it was justfully awarded two star Michelin ranking. I was wondering whether to take the 5 course meal or the 3 course lunch plus two wine... More

Had a pot au feu a few years ago at Le Meurice with Alleno at that time and a Dodin-Bouffant version, exceptional for those who know this and who know about French cuisine heritage.

Description
In the beautiful surroundings of Hélène Darroze's two Michelin-starred restaurant at The Connaught, her lifelong passion for the finest produce and incredible skill is reflected in every aspect of one of Mayfair's most intimate dining experiences. Each day, Hélène selects the very best and freshest ingredients from the network of suppliers she has spent a lifetime gathering, and cooks them with precision, honesty and passion. The resulting menu celebrates the tastes and textures of the most stunning individual produce, prepared in a way that allows each ingredient to shine. At the heart of this whole experience is trust. It starts with the trust that Hélène places in her suppliers, to provide her with exceptional produce, of impeccable seasonality and provenance. And it extends to the diners, who place their trust in Hélène's culinary skill by selecting from the simple list of exceptional ingredients available that day, to be served as a succession of impeccably realised dishes. The result is a thrilling expression of French culinary craft, delivered with a contemporary flourish, enjoyed in a truly elegant setting. India Mahdavi's calm, sophisticated interior and a specially commissioned glasswork installation celebrating the visual beauty of the ingredients found in Hélène's cooking complete what is a feast for the eyes and nourishment for the soul.

Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant.
