Named after the Angelus Bell, this “bistro de luxe” is located in one of London’s last working mews. Formally the site of an old pub, the Art-Déco interiors have been cleverly incorporated into the original architecture of this early 19th century building. Dark wood, sumptuous fabrics and elaborate mirrors help create the atmosphere of a very elegant brasserie, yet the ambiance and service is welcoming and relaxed. Focusing on select favourites, the menu will include starters of Crème brulée au foie gras, followed by examples of fish and meat like Fillet of cod with chorizo, broccoli, grilled spring onions, toasted almond milk and brandade or Roast rump of Salt Marsh lamb, blanquette of shoulder and sweetbreads, seasonal vegetables. Located next door to the Hyde Park Stables and just minutes from the Park itself, Angelus is the perfect place to enjoy an atmospheric brunch, lunch or dinner, or just a relaxing snack after a stroll through one of the most famous parks in London.

Great food and very attentive service

We were there on a Saturday night and it was very quiet - just the two of us and another party of four - and got in the restaurant

Sat outside for our coffee and dessert which cooled us down

Used to have a great wine list which would compensate for the average food, not anymore. The wine Liston the website was full of great bottles. Shame those bottles did not exist in the actual wine list at the restaurant

Starter was excellent but main (pan fried fish) was dry and vegetables were tasteless and cheap. Tables were too crowded together making conversation difficult. Prices were very high given the average quality of the food. Unlikely I would go there again.

I have been here before and the food is always of the highest quality and the service is impeccable.
A very quaint and intimate setting, ideal for a quiet supper.

What let’s the venue down is price ... or should I say value. Wine although starts at £35 a bottle most start at £50+ The cheese and biscuit desert was very small and poor value at £15

I had not been to Angelus restaurant before and wanted to find a really good restaurant in Paddington to take a client. After some research and advice I booked a table at Angelus and certainly wasn't disappointed. I have dined out with this client before at some very nice restaurants such as the Oxo Tower, so the pressure was on to maintain the standard that we had both become accustomed.
We were both delighted with the experience. A very pleasant room, superb food with a menu that was difficult to choose from given that there was so much choice, and fantastic attentive service.
I will certainly be going there again, and would recommend it without hesitation.

I used to have dinner in this restaurant many years ago. It feels like the place is stuck in a former glory. Food was very average and not worth the premium being paid.
It is a shame to see what has become of this place I used to love.

Dinner at Angelus was quite special for us. There were fond memories of previous family occasions and high expectations of service quality, ambience, and cuisine. All of these expectation were exceeded. The wine service was careful and well balanced with the meal, the service was attentive without being intrusive, and our dishes were prepared to perfection. We were able to have a quiet conversation without the energetic noise in so many other locations, the conviviality of the staff made us feel completely at home as with friends, and the overall dining experience was superb. Prices were quite reasonable, which added to the value of the meal. I look forward to frequent return visits with this gem of a restaurant.

One of the best lunches I have had in London, well prepared food, discrete service and the occasional sound of horses hooves on cobble stones outside the window. Delightful.

It's hard to find anywhere near Paddington Station for a high quality lunch, but Angelus fits the bill perfectly. Tucked down a quiet side street you'll find an oasis of calm, with great service and a wide ranging menu.

Very nice with a great wine list. The starters were amazing but the main courses were ok...the service was old style elegant. This is not a casual place; business attire is what you should aim for...

Salmon was only lukewarm and not cooked in the middle and had a slime texture. Nobody asked if the meal was satisfactory, the waitress was very helpful and polite maybe the man who was not as helpful should get a few tips from her. I would eat here again.
