This converted school church still resembles being in a holy place, with the lighting and the design making it seem almost sacred. The Galvin brothers have made a great success of this restaurant and it's no wonder. It's just a great place to be and...More

Fine meal and excellent service. I quite liked the interior design. They have successfully converted a Grade II Victorian mansion-cum-school into a stylish eatery swapping all that oppressive pomp for simplicity in an attractive steel-vaulted chamber. The food was fine dining, but only just; it...More

We had the 6 course tasting Menu Gourmand which they adapted for me as I don’t eat meat or shellfish. The food was sublime, the presentation exquisite and the service and surroundings as always second to none. A class act.

I am writing, after my last visit /Dec/10th/2017/ in order to share my opinion, regarding the reservation, already used. My expectations for repeating delight were in vain. I've already dined in La Chapelle. Each and every time, when I have the possibility, which means when...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Hi Wendy, yes that would be absolutely fine to wear smart jeans. The dress code at La Chapelle is 'smart casual'.

The third restaurant to be opened by acclaimed chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin, La Chapelle has been consistently praised, winning no less than 8 top restaurant awards in its first year, including AA London Restaurant of the Year, and Tatler magazine's Restaurant of the Year. Chef Patron, Jeff Galvin, provides a menu of modern French cuisine, gaining a Michelin star in the 2011 Red Guide, just a year after the restaurant opened. There is also a menu gourmand, prix fixe lunch, early dinner menu, and Sunday Roast lunch menu. The service, under the direction of Alessandro Piombino and his team, effortlessly combines warm, friendly and attentive hospitality with a fine sense of tradition and decorum, in keeping with the grandeur of this Grade II-listed building. The restaurant is one of the few restaurants in London to hold a vertical list of Hermitage La Chapelle wines.
