Fine dining here may be the one thing London's leading poets and politicians have always agreed on
Our legendary Regent Street address has long been the capital's hub for fine food, wine and conversation. Oscar Wilde chose the Café Royal - and its unmatched wine selection - for his salon, while Winston Churchill favoured our steaks, stilton and champagne. Even those who differed on most things, came together here to enjoy an atmosphere and range of gourmet pleasures found nowhere else. The story continues today, as Albert Adrià and other celebrated chefs add to the culinary excitement. This, it seems, is a tradition everyone can agree upon.
The Gallery at Hotel Café Royal is located at the very heart of the hotel on the first floor, overlooking the grand main lobby. Designed to meet friends and family for breakfast, lunch or dinner, The Gallery is a reflection of our history – the Café Royal has long been the place where London's social scene has congregated for more than 150 years, and The Gallery continues this tradition with an intimate, casual dining experience.
Enjoy a variety of organic salads and vegetables, delicious sandwiches, mouth-watering pasta, risotto, and grilled fish and meat dishes, as well as a selection of lighter raw delights, all prepared to match the season. The Gallery serves a combination of signature British dishes (with a uniquely Café Royal twist) and Mediterranean classics, all under the direction of Head Chef Eliano Crespi, with a laser focus on locality and seasonality.
In the spirit of its energetic location, The Gallery organizes live music performances every Friday and Saturday from 6.30pm.
Cakes & Bubbles
Three Michelin-starred chef Albert Adrià, lauded as the world's best pastry chef, has opened his first restaurant outside his native Spain right here at Hotel Café Royal. Cakes & Bubbles offers a parade of exceptional desserts and pastries, as well as the 'Sweet Afternoon Bubbles Experience'. All served alongside a wide selection of Champagne and sparkling wine. Cakes & Bubbles also offers a savoury 'all day dining' menu for lunch and dinner reservations.
Cakes & Bubbles is open Monday to Sunday from 12pm until 10pm. The Cakes & Bubbles sweet menu is only available from 2pm until 6pm.
Oscar Wilde Lounge Afternoon Tea
Once the preferred haunt of Oscar Wilde and his contemporaries, this gilded jewellery box of a room is now the stunning backdrop for our award-winning afternoon tea service.
The Oscar Wilde Lounge currently offers a Van Gogh inspired afternoon in partnership with ‘Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience’, a 360º digital art exhibition in London. The bespoke menu has been designed by our award winning Head Pastry chef Michael Kwan to take you on a magical tasting journey through Van Gogh's most famous art works.
Glenfiddich at Green Bar

Found in the Speyside region of Scotland, nestled in the foothills of The Cairngorms, the Valley of the Deer is where Glenfiddich takes its Gaelic name from and makes its whisky. The ‘Escape to the Valley of the Deer’ bar and dining experience is a true combination of elegance and luxury, for guests to enjoy a moment of serenity amidst the busyness of Christmas shopping in the capital until end of May 2022.
