Galvin Bistrot de LuxeTo celebrate my friends' completion of a course in UNV. of Oxford, we gathered at Galvin Bistro de Luxe in Baker Street.
We once dined at Galvin at Windows in Hilton Lark Lane for her hen night.
Compare to Galvin at Windows, as the original place of Galvin restaurants, the entire atmosphere of Galvin Bistrot de Luxe is very relaxed, lively and therefore is the authentic bistrot.
We had traditional bistro menu such as soupe de poisson and escargot to start, mushroom risotto and grilled lemon sole for main. Then of course, we went for the famous apple tart Tatin for dessert.
Very satisfying as a nice casual lunch with my close friend. The service was very good too.
Actually, it wasn't so impressive when Mr. Husband and I visited here for dinner on Christmas eve some years ago. Perhaps we went wrong place with wrong expectations. Here is a nice, cosy bistro, not the sleek, romantic dinning as Galvin at Windows.
Galvin Bistrot de Luxe is certainly my favourite dinning place where I can go in blue jeans.
Price: 50 pounds each (1 glass of Champagne, soupe de poisson, mushroom risotto, 1/2 tart tatin, a pot of Earl Grey tea)
