Located high up on the 28th floor of the London Hilton at 22 Park Lane, Galvin at Windows restaurant and bar has become one of the capital’s most talked-about destination dining venues since its opening in 2006. Head Chef Joo Won and Chef Patron Chris Galvin have created seasonally inspired menus based around modern French haute cuisine that have now earned the restaurant its first, much-deserved Michelin Star. Renowned for its peerless views over the capital, including iconic sites like Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, Galvin at Windows is a restaurant where honest food and genuine hospitality are already a tradition after just a few short years. Because of the elegance of the room and the jaw-dropping 360-degree views, Galvin at Windows is certainly a destination restaurant with fine service and all the trimmings. But, clever Galvin staff, the set lunch menu and bar express menu bring this sublime French cuisine within reach.

Wonderful service and very tasty food. We had the tasting menu which we highly recommend.
The only thing that did not impress us was the fact that being our wedding anniversary we were given a plate with a weird cake covered in spray cream and the words happy anniversary written in chocolate. Great touch given I did not tell them directly about our aniversary but please don’t offer a stale cake covered in spray cream. It’s just not nice, better if they had offered a glass of cheap champagne.
Other than that simple point we will go back again. (But make sure they don’t know about any celebration ;)

Great spot for pre theatre dinner and a good 3 course set menu at a very reasonable price. Good service and great food. However beware the price of the aperitifs! They are eye wateringly expensive which rather spoils it when you get the bill.

We had postponed our outing due to snow and were guaranteed a window table on our visit in March. The table was perfect as was everything else. The lunch menu had 3 excellent choices, all tasted delicious. We were made to feel very special and each received a small birthday cake with a candle as 5 of us were celebrating our birthdays. A truly excellent experience.

This is a lovely venue with wonderful views, plenty of space and not noisy. The food was lovely (although don't expect to come away feeling very full). However, the most striking feature was the quality of the service which was outstanding - attentive (but not intrusive), friendly, helpful and straightforward. Not cheap, particularly the drinks, but not out of line for the location.

This was a celebration lunch for a friend's big birthday - and a great choice. The food was imaginative, light and, crucially, delicious. Service first class. Tiny gripe: glasses of house champagne at 17 quid a pop were overpriced - good wines by the glass much better value. As a memorable occasion, however, highly recommended - and all with wonderful views of London.

We were celebrating our son's Birthday. Everything was fine , the food was super, the service was good. We would enjoy it fully if we did not sit so close to a 5able with a noisy toddler(( the table was right next to us. I love children, I do understand that they do cry.. I would not complain if I was in Zizzi or any other High Street restaurant. I think there should be an age limit in your restaurant. I never expected to have lunch and listening to a screaming toddler!

This is my favourite restaurant, came here to celebrate my birthday. They even gave me an extra cake and a candle with my dessert! A beautiful touch! Very romantic setting.

The views of London is gorgeous day and night and the bar is great for pre-drinks before lunch or dinner. I will be back.

We went for our anniversary, had a wonderful time! i booked the pre- theatre dinner and it was delicious. i expected the portions to be really small but they were not - perfect size with a bottle of wine.

The staff were really attentive and nice! couldnt fault the food, ambience or any of it would highly recommend.

The only tiny downfall was fred wasn't there - was keen to meet him but everything else was amazing!

We went for Saturday Brunch. We arrived early and had a drink in the bar overlooking Saint Pauls in the city and then taken through to the main restaurant where we overlooked Buckingham Palace. Stunning views. Staff are very friendly. Food was exquisite and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

A suitable venue for a special occasion. A lot of staff meant no waiting.
Ideally all seats would have a sight of the view. Less formal than Galvin Chappelle.
We were there on a Thursday evening and it was full by the time we left.
We would happily eat there again.
The 'cupcake' in recognition of my wife's birthday seemed a bit lame.

food was fabulous along with the matched wines for each course. would highly recommend it.

Only thing i would change is the decor, it is very dark, it felt very old where i would have preferred a more modern light restaurant.

This was the most amazing dining experience I’ve ever had. From the food to the incredibly kind, attentive, and thoughtful staff; I’ll never forget this meal and will most definitely be back. The value was also stellar! Three courses and a Bellini at a Michelin starred restaurant for only £33 is unbelievable. This is a must for any Londoner looking for a cultured dining experience that is delicious and budget friendly!!

The experience at Galvin was outstanding. The food was excellent; service was seamless. Our server, Cosmin was one of the best I have experienced. He was conversational to the point one needs to be and had such brilliant knowledge of his job. I am looking forward to my next visit to have dinner at Galvin.

Amazing night for my 16 year old daughter on her birthday. She even got a tour of the kitchen and a view of London from the 28th floor balcony of London Hilton on Park lane. Her face said it all. Amazing food, and she loved her mint tea ice scream specially made on her request. Amazing staff, atmosphere, food, overall a great night to cherish.

AS expected the view was wonderful. The food was better than other ‘ top floor ’ restaurants with top class ingredients and skilful preparation. It is of course expensive but not outrageous for the overall experience. If i have any complaint, it would be that the staff were too diligent and it sometimes felt as if we were being rushed through the meal.
