With its breathtaking views, Galvin at Windows is the perfect setting for a memorable romantic dinner with that special someone and is famous as a venue for marriage proposals and to celebrate engagements.
Situated on the 28th floor of London Hilton on Park Lane, guests can enjoy a 360-degree birds-eye view of London surrounded by the restaurant’s glamorous and elegant interior evoking the golden age of the 1930s.
Galvin at Windows offers a seasonally inspired modern French haute cuisine created exclusively by Chef Patron Chris Galvin and Head Chef Joo Won at the helm of the Kitchen.

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas and Galvin at Windows are in the festive spirit. To begin our meal, we sampled some homemade bread with the romantic glow of St Nick looking on from afar.
For Starters, if you are after an indulgent treat, the Foie Gras with pulled duck topped with pork crackling is a must-try. The dish is a rich melt-in-the-mouth extravaganza with crunchy meaty textures from the other elements that will want you to try it again and again.
The Kimchi risotto with Clarence Court egg, sesame & 24-month aged Parmesan is an interesting dish. The creamy nature of the risotto combines well with the cheese and takes away the bite of the kimchi. A fantastic option and definitely a dish to try if you want something new.
Another starter of note is the Game ballotine with lardo di Colonnata, pancetta, red wine poached pear & grain mustard. Served at room temperature, the variety of meat keeps you guessing whilst the pear adds a subtle sweetness to the dish.
A main course of note is the Charred lobster tail with scallop, sea bream, bisque & rouille. This is a very simple dish but the freshness and quality of the ingredients speak for themselves. If you are a seafood lover, the gates of heaven open here.
For meat lovers looking for a decadent main course, we recommend the Fillet of Scotch beef, short rib croquette, black truffle, celeriac purée & jus Bordelaise.
For those who like to end their meal with a well-curated cheese board, we thoroughly enjoyed the Cheese Selection of seasonal cheeses by Maître affineur ‘Buchanans.
We couldn’t resist the Kidavoa chocolate, peanut and banana soufflé with peanut butter ice cream.
Decorated with gold leaf, the Tainori chocolate delice, caramelized hazelnuts & orange ice cream is the perfect way to end the meal for any chocoholic.
Having maintained a Michelin star every year between 2009 and 2019, Galvin at Windows may have lost its star but it still sets the bar for French haute cuisine on the London restaurant scene.
