Guests are welcomed as if they are friends at this illustrious restaurant in a picture perfect spot on a bank of the Thames. The wonderful terrace is fringed by weeping willows and boats and swans vie for positions on the water.
A bastion of culinary excellence, it was opened in 1972 by the late brothers Michel and Albert Roux and, despite being the longest-standing Starred restaurant in the UK, it continues to go from strength to strength under the auspices of Michel’s son, Alain.
Luxury is at every turn, from the finest crockery and glassware to indulgent ingredients and this, combined with the effortless service, creates a truly memorable dining experience. Menus list all the French classics, from rabbit to lobster, and there’s always a soufflé of the day. Flavours are full and sauces are intense but there’s also a lightness of touch to the execution.
