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.

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

This was my second visit to Laurent and was, again, very positive. Walking into the Cafe Royal from Regent Street feels like entering a beautiful oasis. The refurb is amazing. Getting to Laurent takes you up sweeping marble stairs and into a very intimate space to eat. The restaurant ambience is very calming and is conducive to business or social dining. All the restaurant staff greet you as you make your way to the table - a nice touch which makes you feel welcomed and that you matter. The food was delicious and beautifully presented; fresh sushi and perfectly cooked steak. The drinks selection was also extensive. Service was friendly, efficient yet unobtrusive. I woule definitely recommend and am looking for my next reason (excuse!) to go.

Bit of a disaster!! Went for Sunday Lunch set menu inc Bellini cocktail to celebrate wedding anniversary. NO Bellinis were offered and there was no Cote de Beoff on menu offered (I had screenshot of the advertised menu showing this) so not a good start. The waitress did ask the manager and we were allowed the Sunday roast beef. It took a long time for her to input our drinks and food order into the computer and she rechecked with us multiple times!! We were eventually served 2 STEAK and CHIPS (2 ordered the cod), waiter took all food away and came back to explain there was no roast beef on set menu so we then had whole convo about the previous waitress (nowhere to be seen by now) had checked and that yes we could have it. Very professional waiter then profusely apologized, and reordered all the food, he then told us the white wine was on the house. Eventually had the meals served, my roast was delicious but my husbands beef was just a whole lot of fat, at this point he just ate what he could! The 2 cods were small but good. Very few people in restaurant, no atmosphere, horrible music too loud so we decided against a bottle of champagne to celebrate our anniversary at end of meal and went elsewhere. Would NOT return,

Delicious food, great service, but didn’t realise it was at a hotel when booking, and it definitely lacks atmosphere because of it. Still very good experience, just wouldn’t recommend for a special occasion.

A really lovely place for dinner and the staff were fantastic, friendly without being in your face and warm and accommodating. The food was very good and the deal we had was good value for money. The wine list isn't cheap but that wasn't a surprise.

The open table deal seems to have diminished in portion size over the last year and no longer comes with a Bellini included. The food is still good quality - just less of it!

I went to Café Royal with three other women and we all had a very pleasant time. The food was well prepared and well served. Waitress service was excellent. We were not hurried and felt that we could really take our time. I'm sure we will be back in future.

Excellent overall experience. Great food for a set menu. Nice, light tomato salad starter with perfectly cooked cod for the mains. Waiter provided great service for the evening throughout. Was seated outside of the main room which was the only let down, otherwise a well polished meal and great evening.

Lux setting in recently revamped first floor of the Cafe Royal. Our party of 5 were seated slightly strangely at one end of a very long oval table that could have seated 12 comfortably. Other tables were regular seating. Food was amazing- delicious steaks, fabulous sushi (best eel nigrini), wagyu carpaccio etc. Plus very good wine recommendations from the sommelier. All in all excellent evening for a special occasion, just be prepared to dig deep.
