Went here for lunch on a recent business trip with some colleagues. The view is amazing and almost worth the price of admission which is £25 for a three course fixed lunch menu. First course was an onion soup thing which was pretty good and very creamy. The next course was short rib meat in what seemed to be a... More

I visited this restaurant with a friend of mine and we had such a wonderful evening and food, the ambient, staff were nice and very friendly, many of them with French accent which brought me back in memory for many trips in France. But the dessert was something that convinced me that I must visit this place again. I truly... More

Excellent food, little lacking in atmosphere but it was a Tuesday night so could be better at the weekend. On the food I can safely say the venison dish I had was exceptional and would make me book again. Clearly the views are also very impressive :)

This was our last dinner during our honeymoon. Thoroughly enjoyable other than an episode where a member of staff suggested we were not used to pay a high bill such as theirs when the credit card payment failed. So unprofessional. It then resulted Galvin on Windows were passing a transaction in offline mode, typically because of a dropped connection. VISA... More

I bought a hotel break for 2 outside London for my wife's Xmas present. We got a cab from the hotel to the train station into London. The cabbie was great. He told us next time we come to visit Galvins at Windows for lunch. So we looked it up and booked the pre theatre offer table for this evening.... More

We were lucky enough to visit on a clear, sunny day over the xmas period so the views were amazing. They have a kids menu for lunch (2 courses £10) so we took our 8 year old and she really enjoyed the experience. Service was excellent as expected and the staff really looked after our daughter - she got chips... More

We had the tasting menu which was delicious. The venison was a particular highlight, it was cooked perfectly. My other half did the wine pairings and they were really matched very well. The dessert of an apple tart was a let down though, it was too heavy and stodgy after all the courses and failed to impress us. Also we... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
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. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
