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.
Alex Dilling at Hotel Café Royal
Hotel Café Royal is delighted to announce the upcoming summer 2022 opening of chef Alex Dilling’s first standalone restaurant.
Dilling will be the Executive Chef of the restaurant in his own name ‘Alex Dilling – At Hotel Café Royal’. Following the success of his time at the helm of Two-Michelin star kitchens, most recently ‘The Greenhouse’ and ‘Helene Darroze at The Connaught’, Dilling is delighted to have found his perfect location and new home at Hotel Café Royal.
Alex Dilling at Hotel Café Royal will primarily focus on showcasing gastronomic French classics through meticulous and unique cooking techniques. The restaurant will be located on the first floor of the Hotel Café Royal in an intimate 34 seat dining room.
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.
