Helene Darroze at The Connaught is an intoxicating French restaurant that serves dazzling and delicious food and makes you feel like you are in the finest restaurant in Paris. You start your meal by deciding the number of courses (5 or 7) and picking a principal ingredient. (This is not a place for a light or quick meal.) It is... More

Sharing emotions and bringing back forgotten childhood memories with each and every dish ... taking a traditional 'one pot' beef and vegetable stew to the sublime! Le "Pot au Feu" du Dimanche...

The restaurant and the hotel are well matched. Both are smooth and soothing. We seagued seemlessly from The Coburg Bar to the restaurant and were well looked after from start to finish. There was an excellent choice of wines by the glass but my eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw the Armagnac trolly. Actually, I think... More

In her eponymous restaurant, Helene Darroze continues to dazzle with her exciting contemporary French cuisine. This is only to be expected from a chef with two Michelin stars who was also named the Veuve Clicquot World’s Best Female Chef (2015) and the thrice decorated with France’s celebrated Order of Chevalier. Creativity, meticulous attention to detail and a pairing of classical... More

For a special treat, we enjoyed the tasting menu. Delightful cooking, with plenty of treats and a unique menu method with little balls on a wooden board. Also enjoyed a lovely cocktail in the Bar. Excellent service throughout.

Came for the fantastic 5 course dinner. Everything was fantastic! I love the ingredients concept. I'm not normally a fan of dessert but my rhubarb dessert blew me away in its joyful goodness. Impressive and varied wine list! Staff really go beyond to make sure you are having an enjoyable meal. Highly recommend!

Went with very close friends to celebrate her special birthday, for a very memorable meal. Great service, superb food and wonderful memories for us all. We had the 5 course tasting menu and loved the way you choose your courses with the marbles on a board. The ability to have different courses at different stages in your own individual menu... More

This was a truly excellent set lunch which for a 2 star restaurant was great value. The setting in The Connaught, the service and above all the quality of the food was just wonderful. There are several excellent set lunch menus available at London's premier restaurants, but this one has to be about the best in my view. Will return... More

We were staying at the Connaught for our wedding anniversary and booked a table to celebrate the event at Hélène Darroze, a restaurant we have enjoyed on many occasions. The hotel had notified the restaurant as to the occasion and it was charming that staff, from the acting restaurant manager to table staff, went out of their way to ensure... More

Description
In the beautiful surroundings of Hélène Darroze's two Michelin-starred restaurant at The Connaught, her lifelong passion for the finest produce and incredible skill is reflected in every aspect of one of Mayfair's most intimate dining experiences. Each day, Hélène selects the very best and freshest ingredients from the network of suppliers she has spent a lifetime gathering, and cooks them with precision, honesty and passion. The resulting menu celebrates the tastes and textures of the most stunning individual produce, prepared in a way that allows each ingredient to shine. At the heart of this whole experience is trust. It starts with the trust that Hélène places in her suppliers, to provide her with exceptional produce, of impeccable seasonality and provenance. And it extends to the diners, who place their trust in Hélène's culinary skill by selecting from the simple list of exceptional ingredients available that day, to be served as a succession of impeccably realised dishes. The result is a thrilling expression of French culinary craft, delivered with a contemporary flourish, enjoyed in a truly elegant setting. India Mahdavi's calm, sophisticated interior and a specially commissioned glasswork installation celebrating the visual beauty of the ingredients found in Hélène's cooking complete what is a feast for the eyes and nourishment for the soul.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
