Galvin At Windows

I’ve spent a lovely day with Mike and baby George.

We occasionally treat ourselves to lunch or dinner at Galvin at Windows on special occasions.

The elegant restaurant is situated on the 28th floor of London Hilton, Park Lane. 
The views are absolutely stunning, the atmosphere is classy (but not pretentious) and it’s pleasantly relaxed.

Galvins is French haute cuisine created by head chef Joo Won.
The manager,  Fred Sirieix you might recognise from Channel 4’s First Dates.

The service is probably one of my favourite things about this restaurant.

On this occasion we decided to take George (our seven month old).
I rang to ask if they could pop a highchair at the table for me
The lady couldnt have been nicer, after confirming the highchair she told me she would be reserving us a seat by the window so that George could enjoy the views!

The reason we booked an impromptu visit is that I was sent an email.

It is Galvins 10th anniversary this month and they had a couple of special offers.
The one we went for was a three course meal and a bellini cocktail for £30 per person.

When we arrived the staff,  as usual were absolutely fantastic.
They are cooing over George,  which put me at ease straight away as I really wasn’t sure what the reaction would be taking a baby with us.

After a coffee in the bar we were seated.
Elisa, the lady who was looking after us was absolutely charming.  
She was attentive without being over the top.
She brought over a little play pack for George and made sure he was a happy as we were.

The menu was impressive and both Mike and I went for Steak Tartar for starter and Pork Cheek for main.

Both were stunning,  fine dining at its best.

For dessert we both went for Creme Brule and coffee.

Whatever our bill is,  we always come away feeling like we have had a really special experience and great value for money.

For us,  it’s such a beautiful restaurant and I honestly can not recommend it enough.

For a special occasion or just a date night it really it worth the trip and the money.
If anyone ever fancies dinner with a view, forget Aqua at The Shard (which I was super disappointed with) and book here instead.

FYI we used the Justpark website to find a car park.  
We pre booked on our way to London at the Hilton,  Park Lane Car Park.
For three hours it cost £12.50 which,  compared to Croydon parking prices I thought was great value for London, let alone Park Lane!
