About Angelus Restaurant

Named after the Angelus Bell, this “bistro de luxe” is located in one of London’s last working mews. Formally the site of an old pub, the Art-Déco interiors have been cleverly incorporated into the original architecture of this early 19th century building. Dark wood, sumptuous fabrics and elaborate mirrors help create the atmosphere of a very elegant brasserie, yet the ambiance and service is welcoming and relaxed. Focusing on select favourites, the menu will include starters of Crème brulée au foie gras, followed by examples of fish and meat like Fillet of cod with chorizo, broccoli, grilled spring onions, toasted almond milk and brandade or Roast rump of Salt Marsh lamb, blanquette of shoulder and sweetbreads, seasonal vegetables.
Located next door to the Hyde Park Stables and just minutes from the Park itself, Angelus is the perfect place to enjoy an atmospheric brunch, lunch or dinner, or just a relaxing snack after a stroll through one of the most famous parks in London.

We had a great dinner at Angelus two years ago and decided to meet good friends there on our recent trip to London. All four of us ordered the tasting menu which was very good with nice and fairly priced wine pairings. This is a wonderfully authentic French bistro.

Booked for Friday night and found we were the only two in the Restaraunt Two more people came in late on so no ambience at all. The waiter told us that the closure of the Lancaster hotel and the tube station had badly affected their business.

The food was way below the standard we expected and I will not be going back.

I had visited the Restaraunt before and had a very good experience so was disappointed this time.

 (Surrey)·Dined on July 6, 2017

Most of the wine was very very expensive. Two of us left our cauliflower soup as it was salty. Because of the cost, we all chose from the set menu at £41. My American friend ordered a sour martini but that is not what she got. We heard from neighbours that they have recently changed hands. As we didn't sample food not on the set menu, we cannot know how good the rest of the repertoire might have been but we were unimpressed with what we ate.

Beautiful setting with a good menu. But the wine list is ridiculously expensive with ALL the entry level wines unavailable.
A quiet, mid-week evening menu but the restaurant felt like it had just changed hands or was about to close down.
Very disappointing.

Food was amazing - especially the octopus salad (grilled to.perfection) and the souffle - it was so fluffy and matches sooo well with the pistachio ice cream and the passionfruit ice cream. Managers of the resturant as well as the sommelier were so accomodating and friendly - made you feel right at home.

We had been before for lunch and, on a sunny day, chose to eat outside. The road has been closed off, so it is relatively peaceful. On Thursday it was very quiet and we were the only diners outside. I had the table d'hote with rather nice cauliflower soup, followed bty a tasty aubergine main course. Wines here are very expensive. Service was ultra attentive

As ever a fabulous meal at Angelus. I had the summer pistou to start and my partner had the traditional scallops - fabulous as ever. We both had the fish for main - tuna was rare - just perfect and nicely seared on the outside and I had the monkfish very nice. Dessert was fabulous - I had the honey and rosemary souffle with ice cream - very naughty, but did not disappoint. I've been going to Angelus for 8 years and it's always very very special

Not cheap but well worth it for a special occasion. The ambience is wonderful, especially if you like Arte Nouveau. Food typically French - very good and sensibly-sized potions but which wouldn't suit gluttons. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

This is a comfortable cozy French restaurant with interesting menus both a la crate and set price. I just wish they had a more affordable wine list but for oenophiles this will be a real find. Try the snails which are not the usual garlicky in their shells or the duck liver parfait which is wonderful and airy.

Now a regular user at Angelus and it never fails. Lovely attitude by staff and management, and excellent food. Personally I think the A La Carte is far superior to the Table d'Hote (which is still good) and having a smaller appetite nowadays, two course AlC v 3 course Td'H is no contest. good heavily French wine list, with some impressive trophy wines but a good selection of mid range/affordables too.

The first time we came here for Valentine's, we had an amazing time. Unfortunately, this time there were only three tables occupied. On Saturday night. What made things worse was that we were all seated together. Which meant people felt too awkward to talk freely. It was all rather eerie. They'd also run out of pretty much all their digestives after a big night which was a shame because we'd previously loved their poire Williams. That said, food and service was still great.

I normally don't go out in this area, but as I was meeting a business acquaintance coming in from Heathrow, I searched internet for a good place to go. This venue had really good revues. However, my experience was quite different. I started with a broccoli velouté, which was far too rich and not really tasty (£10). I then continued with a John Dory (£26) which was so dry that I left parts of it. I overheard a lady beside me later saying the same thing. We then had a cheese platter to share, which was very small. Finally, I went for a passion fruit and raspberry tart, which was so dry and tasteless that again, I left part of it. I eat out 4-5 times a week, and normally I enjoy the quality at London restaurants, but this was definitely not one of them. The decor is nice, so I would have rated higher on ambience, if it wasn't for the fact that for a long while, we were the only guests. Throughout the evening, there were only three tables occupied. I guess people living in the area already know what I just found out: Angelus is to be avoided!

Everyone is very experienced but takes nothing for granted and wants to provide the best. It was a wonderful evening. Thank you

Lovely, friendly service but not rapid. Suited us as we were not in a hurry and enjoyed the lazy lunch but being near a mainline terminus (Paddington) others might find it a bit slooowww. Food is splendid and nicely quirky. Great set menu and wide ranging wine list. The interior is a nice mix of gentleman's club, repurposed pub, posh post house-party living room and bistro. Definitely a future regular spot for these diners. This was third visit and the appeal has not faded
