European

Encapsulating the architectural elegance and history of Vienna and wider Central-Europe, The Delaunay evokes the spirit of grand café dining, infusing it with a sense of timeless appeal.

Located by Covent Garden and in the heart of theatre-land, the menus celebrate European flavours, often spotlighting lesser-known continental dishes.

Open early for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner, The Delaunay is open seven days a week. Alongside the restaurant, there is also a bar and counter setting. The Counter offers refined but easy dishes for brief stops or takeaway, whilst the bar is a cossetting and imaginative place for pre-or-post dinner cocktails.

If you’re looking to make a booking, please visit the website or call 020 7499 8558.

    The Delaunay remains a special place to eat, the ambience is good, so is the food and the waiting staff are always helpful and welcoming. However, the prices are starting to get a bit silly. I've just come back from Zurich, which is famous for being outrageously expensive, but The Delaunay would now give most places a run for their money in terms of pricing. My fear is that it will increasingly become a wealthy tourist and expense account place. (so I'm ticking the box that I wouldn't recommend it to a friend, because most of my friends couldn't afford it - this was not the case in the past)

    Service was attentive when we arrived, but trying to attract servers for a second coffee, or to request the bill was impossible. Studiously ignored as they bustled passed. And a side of smoked salmon was both expensive and ridiculously small - one small piece of salmon for £9. That’s a rip off and spoilt my otherwise ok experience.

    This restaurant isn’t what it used to to be. The Sunday roast wasn’t great. Smaller portions and an increased price. Not great

    Such a lovely restaurant! The service was perfection and the food, lemon sole was wonderful! The noise level was a bit loud…we were seated near a family with small children. Delightful! Would highly recommend!
