Fine French cuisine in a chapel

Having already proved themselves in the world of gastronomy, the Galvin brothers met to form the Galvin La Chapelle in London. As the name says, it is situated in a former chapel, in the Whitechapel / Shoreditch area and features a mix of great food and a marvelous setting.

This sumptuous restaurant embodies sober elegance with its cinematic spaces. Its architecture combines classic and modern and its fantastic decoration, discreetly illuminated, constitutes a privileged framework for your dinners with family or in love. This starred restaurant is housed in an old Victorian parish hall, whose vaulted ceilings, chandeliers, arched windows and marble columns are remarkable.

You can taste traditional French cuisine, but also couscous and Moroccan tajine. For your private parties, a gallery is available for an evening in complete privacy. With their sumptuous gastronomy, the two Englishmen are already proud to have a Michelin star, which is hung in the vaulted firmament of this sublime nineteenth century building. At the 2017 Bookatable awards, it won the "Best French Restaurant" award and 14th place in the top 50 restaurants in London.

In the kitchens (shared with the Galvin Wine Café next to La Chapelle) and behind the tin bars designed by Conran, the educated and charming staff busy themselves with wines and dishes such as chicken terrine Landes or Bayonne ham and foie gras, which looks like delicious stained glass. Visiting here is an easy way to taste great French cuisine in Central London, without having to travel to Paris. As it is a Michelin star restaurant, it is just as good as the best French restaurants. Plan to spend around £30 for an express lunch with two courses and a glass of wine. If you really want to spend, you can even have a 7 course dinner for £75. There is a menu for each budget.
