The 8 course Menu Decouverte at L'Atelier is something really special. Every dish is really well thought out and perfectly executed. All dishes were also very nicely presented which clearly adds to the appeal. Service is spot on: professional and knowledgeable. We loved all of...More

This place was recommended to my wife and myself on our Eurostar train trip from London by a couple of amicable and garrulous Parisienne locals. After reviewing online, we stumbled in on a Saturday mid-afternoon without a reservation, and luckily found a place. Food was...More

I am going to be harsh on my review because when you are presented with a bill of 350£ for 2 people, you'd expect more consideration. I booked this specific restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. I booked at 10pm, after the show, on the...More

These guys are aiming for the top and it is obvious, so come well dressed and expect a big check. Serving sizes are ridiculously small but extraordinarily good. The leg of prosciutto made my mouth water at first sight and delivered in full. The 'slice...More

Not a great experience. Amuse bouche of foie gras, Parmesan foam and... something... was horrible. Starter was just a boiled egg with watercress foam, main was forgettable. Pudding (pineapple and rum and raisin ice cream) was very good. Saved a 1/5 rating).More

Smart casual would be fine (for gentlemen, khaki slacks and a blazer with a nice shirt -- tie optional). Feel free to dress up a bit better if you'd like, but it isn't necessary.

Drawing on Joel Robuchon's internationally renowned culinary expertise, already accredited with several Michelin Stars at restaurants throughout the world, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon's philosophy is based on serving simple cuisine of the most exceptional quality. This London restaurant has been awarded Michelin Star, as well as 3 AA Rosettes, establishing it as one of the most exceptional places to dine in London. Robuchon's menu delights the palate with clean insightful flavours and refreshingly understated presentation. The dishes are predominantly French with Italian and Spanish influences. The dining experience at L'Atelier is an interactive one. On the ground floor, the eating counter surrounds the entire kitchen where the food is prepared. Robuchon sees the immediate benefit of this Japanese-inspired layout to chefs, as one can gauge the reaction of clients, and even converse with them whilst they watch their food being prepared. Unlike the sister restaurants in Paris and Tokyo, the London restaurant also has another 20 seats where diners can sit opposite each other. Meanwhile, La Cuisine on the first floor offers more traditional restaurant seating in a setting that could be likened to dining in the kitchen itself. Wherever you are seated you will enjoy the highest quality food in an informal, convivial environment. Valet parking is also available. Please note, last reservations are taken half an hour prior to closing time. Dress code: Smart Casual, shorts are not permitted.
