Opened almost 15 years to the day after their first London venture (Bistrot de Luxe, which also inspires it), this new Galvin Brothers restaurant next to La Chapelle serves familiar, traditional French bistrot dishes and wines.
Harden's survey result
“A lovely brasserie-style option at the rear of Galvin La Chapelle” – the Galvins keep reformatting the smallish unit adjacent to their landmark venue (previously Galvin HOP, RIP, and before that Café à Vin). This mid-2020 re-launch pays homage to the formula of their original ‘Bistrot de Luxe’, which launched their empire 15 years ago. “Very casual and lots of fun” – staff are “very friendly”; it has “a lovely outside space on the terrace with a cover”; and the cooking is “just what French bistro-style fare should be”.
For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
