We had an overnight stay at the Sofitel at Heathrow. Business dinner arranged with a social gathering in the bar for pre dinner drinks. Then in to the restaurant. Great food, great service, excellent.

We are staying overnight at Sofitel, Heathrow and this was the obvious choice for dinner. Convenient of course, but also a gourmet restaurant. Unfortunately very pricey as well with an average of £28 per main course. The wine list is rather overpriced as well.

I needed a place to have lunch with some business associates flying in from Sweden. I knew the hotel was walking distance from the airport terminal 5, so checked and found there was a restaurant, I didn't expect it to be so good! The food is incredible and the staff very attentive. The only down side for me was it... More

We went for the tasting menu with wine pairings. 3 of the dishes were absolutely delicious and the others were very good. The wine pairings were great. This is a great, informal fine-dining restaurant where we usually dine when staying at the Sofitel which we do around 2 or 3 times a year.

A very comfortable restaurant, when in the vicinity of Heathrow, there's nothing that beats it. We had the seven course tasting menu and it was sublime. Our children had meals from the kids menu and they thoroughly enjoyed the food. The waiters looked after all of us very well.

Description
Named in retrospect and translated as the "Beautiful Era", our inspiration for this restaurant emerged from the period in European social history during the late 19th century that lasted until World War,It became recognised as the "golden age" - a time when new technologies and medical discoveries were found and when politics, art and literature underwent radical transformation. In Paris, restaurants achieved a new splendour and cachet for one to parade and where fashion began to move in seasonal cycles.In the culinary sense this period is enormously relevant to our philosophy of progression, optimism and very modern.We would like to think this beautiful era is strongly characterised by our cooking which is rarely serious yet rooted in classical French cuisine and have extended our repertoire to embrace some exciting 'outward looking' far eastern variations.
