Laurent at Café Royal is the new Grill and Sushi Bar located within Hotel Café Royal on London's Regent Street. The restaurant marks a return to London for French-born Laurent Tourondel, and his first venue in Europe.

Laurent features an array of newly designed areas including booths and views of either elegant Regent Street or the grand hotel lobby with a spectacular Murano glass chandelier at the centre.
International influences are evident across the new menu where Laurent has combined his experiences to open a restaurant unlike anything he has done before. An open kitchen and grill offer the finest grilled meat and fish; whilst sushi masters prepare inventive sushi, sashimi and raw fish from the sushi bar.
The bar offers a wide selection of wines from both new and classic regions with a focus on the French 'regal regions', alongside cocktails and fine spirits.


On Wednesday 18th July, all reservations between 3pm - 6pm will be seated in the Gallery.

Overall food and service was good, the only issue was the chairs. They were really low and not comfortable, specially the long chairs.

Coctails are definatly the highlight and food is superb! Would be great if the restaurant was more busy, as we were one on 4 parties dinning and the room looked quite empty.

We had the London Restaurant Week menu (2courses for £26 or 3 for £29) and it was a superb meal. We also added some sashimi which just melted in the mouth, as did the beef tartare. Beautiful setting and non-stuffy service and would return in a flash.

Bit disappointed if I'm being honest. Sommelier messed up the wine order - I ordered a white and he delivered a red - and when he announced the white I wanted was actually out of stock he then had the cheek of offering an alternative that was 50% more expensive. After serving a white I then ordered I had to ask a couple of times for our glasses to be topped up during dinner. Food wise, having selected the OpenTable set menu, the portions were smaller than a couple ordering the same main course off the a la carte menu who were sat at the next table. The only saving grace was the chocolate dessert. This was very good. Highly likely I won't go back.

Another excellent visit to Restaurant Laurent with some new guests that have been before. Like us they thought it was outstanding. Great Yorkshire puddings to start then possibly the best steak in London followed by our favorite desserts anywhere. The background music was also really good and added to the atmosphere of the room. definitely make sure you are sitting in the front restaurant however and not one of the back corridors.

I believe our waiter was “Chris” - very welcoming and attentive. Lovely food. The Snake River Beef Tataki appetiser was delicious.
The Maitre D popped over to chat which was nice.
Lovely table by the window so able to appreciate the views outside as well as the decor within.
Would happily return next time we go to the theatre.

Great value - we had the set menu as pre-theatre. Beautiful food, interesting mix of cuisines and great presentation. Portions were modest but fine for early dining. Wine was lovely but not much choice under £30 a bottle. The building is a renovated Art Deco marvel, complete with old-fashioned lift and stained glass
