Holder of two Michelin stars and, more importantly, winner of the OpenTable Best Food award, Michel Roux Jr’s Le Gavroche is among London’s most well loved restaurants. An unimposing doorway in the heart of Mayfair leads in to a temple of gastronomy. Whet your palate with an aperitif in the cosy bar with its country house atmosphere before moving in to the classically designed main restaurant where crisp white linen meets heritage paint colours and tasteful artwork. There may be a dress code here but Le Gavroche is nonetheless unpretentious and comfortable – sink in to a comfortable chair and be spoilt for choice by some of the finest French food the UK has to offer and the pick of a 60,000 bottle wine cellar.

    The service was fantastic but the food was on a par with a competent bistro. Over 2 decades ive had a few dozen meals here, 15 years ago Michel Roux was cooking some of the finest food in London. Standards started falling around 2017 and I visited less often finally giving up on the place in 2019. I saw the restaurant was permanently closing so popped in for nostalgia's sake. The food was utterly woeful for a 2 michelin star restaurant. Why Michel let standards fall so far is bewildering, no point complaining as the restaurant will be consigned to history now. An absolute shame to throw that wonderful legacy away like that and go out with an embarrassing whimper rather than at the top of their game. The service is still exemplary, it always was from Silvano, to Emmanuel and at the end the twins. Thank you to the front of house for hosting my guests and I so warmly over the years and thank you to Michel and the kitchen for some wonderful meals.

    Excellent meal, such a shame that the restaurant is closing it's doors in January. Food was generally fantastic, with sophistication but without over-complication at the expense of flavours. All staff were very friendly, informed and attentive (but without over-fussing). Wishing them all success in wherever their career takes them next.

    An amazing experience! The dishes were rich in flavour and the level between classic and contemporary was just right! The chicken pasta dish was very flavourful and the pigeon was cooked well. The pear sabayon and shortbread dessert I chose instead of cheese was very satisfying and pleasantly rich. The alcoholic drinks were reasonably priced as well. Meeting Michel Roux Jr. himself and getting a photograph and a signed menu was a great experience. I will miss this restaurant a lot. It's such a shame to see it close after having been open for nearly 60 years and having such an amazing history and role in the British fine dining scene. Keeping 2 Michelin stars for over 30 years is a sign of excellence and determination. I wish I had been able to go more times over the years. I had a fabulous meal both times I dined here! Thank you for the excellent food and hospitality. Wishing all staff the best of luck in their new jobs and Michel Roux Jr. a happy and relaxing time with his family and friends!

    Very difficult indeed to fault. Sensibly, the food, and its presentation, steers away from elaboration, best epitomised by the soufflé suissesse. The ingredients, of impeccable provenance, are allowed to speak for themselves. And the service was astonishingly good. If only the restaurant could carry on ad infinitude.

    Attentive and friendly service as always and wonderful food. We had the tasting menu and wine flight which were perfect for a special occasion. Christmas decorations and flowers were stylish. The theatre of watching the cheese trolley and those ordering the côte de boeuf was fun. We were not hurried at any stage. Chef Michel was charming. Everyone as they left was wishing the team well.

    Perhaps our last chance to enjoy the historic Le Gavroche before it closes in the New Year. A truly memorable evening with wonderful food: the Turbot was exquisite and the cheese souffle was a fluffy white, cheese-flavoured cloud, floating in a pool of Emmental. Faultless! The evening was made still better because Michel came to our table for a chat and signed a copy of his new book with a special message for my wife on her birthday. Magic!!

    Food was good but quite rich so unfortunately we both had reflux issues later. It was a shame Michel wasn't in the restaurant as that would have made the experience for me. First, and obviously the last, time here and I'm glad to have ticked off one of the restaurants on my bucket list.

    Absolutely amazing final meal at this legendary restaurant. We had the tasting menu with the £225 fine wine pairing. The food was stunning and the wines were so interesting and full of character. Service was outstanding, as always, and Michel was present touring the tables and making time to speak with every guest. My pregnant guest was really well looked after, the somellier even putting together an £85 non-alcoholic drinks pairing for every course. Le Gavroche has such a unique, cosy atmosphere, and this meal was a wonderful way to say goodbye to the restaurant and its fabulous staff.

    Excellent as expected, this place is like stepping into another world. The service, menu and surroundings are very traditional but it's executed so unbelievably well and the food is just beautiful. What I did enjoy is that I could actually walk out after, usually tasting menus are just far too much food but this one was spot on!
