Square Meal Review of Gauthier Soho ?

At a time when even London’s most aspirational restaurants are dropping fine-dining accoutrements in favour of a more stripped-back approach, Gauthier Soho feels like a last bastion of haute cuisine. Spread over three serene, civilised floors of a Regency townhouse, amidst sparkling cloches and gilt-edged charger plates, it proffers light, seasonal, “beautifully presented” French cooking to murmurs of sophisticated appreciation. Despite a peppering of A-list ingredients, Alexis Gauthier’s calorie-counted ‘plats’ are true to the calendar – witness pea and lovage velouté with duck foie gras, wild sea bass with mixed beans, marinated tomatoes and basil broth or crispy piglet with soft apricots, beetroot and buttered trompettes. For a sublime finale, look no further than dark chocolate ‘Golden Louis XV’. Gauthier is also famed for his exquisite vegetable tasting menu, though the set lunch shows no shortage of “fabulous” details. Glorious French regional wines too.

  1. What is on offer: Gauthier Soho is the place to go if you are yearning for truffle bonanza! The cooking is highly accomplished and the service very good. We’re not sure why they’ve lost their Michelin star (based on our visit, they’ll regain it soon), but it does mean that for the time being you can have a Michelin dining experience for a very good price...

    Ross eats :: Gauthier

    Transformation is a word that I think can be rather overused in restaurants, especially those that remain in the same premises and serve the same style of food. I first visited Gauthier during it’s first year and remember having a great meal but other than being given the option of bacon bread in the bread selection and a perfect risotto I couldn’t tell you anything more about the food we had that night, but having since returned (a couple of times) things have rather changed (and they STILL serve bacon bread)...

    ivy eats again. :: Gauthier Soho, London

    I love French fine dining. So I thought I would treat Mr T something special for his birthday. It was hard to choose, even after some intensive research I still couldn't choose. Gauthier Soho has always been on my list of to go restaurants and it is undeniably one of the more affordable Michelin dining experience restaurant.Hidden in a Victorian town house in Soho, Gauthier Soho is a former one Michelin star restuarant. We rang the doorbell and a oh so chic waitress greeted us and led us upstairs to our seats. We opted for the tasting menu with wine pairing but the a la carte menu offers good value too. Originally...

    vialaporte :: Gauthier Soho // Soho // London

    There’s always been a lot of hype about Gauthier Soho, spearheaded by the chef himself with his numerous TV appearances on programmes like Master Chef. But as Alexis has found out the hard way that you need to maintain your high standards if you are to hold onto success.

    Behind a small entrance is a very cosy Victorian terrace...

Alexis Gauthier

Trained at the Negresco in Nice and Alain Ducasse’s Louis XV, French chef Alexis Gauthier brought the south of France to Pimlico when he opened Roussillon in 1998. His refined style and emphasis on vegetables (regarded as highly eccentric at the time) won him a Michelin star in 2000. In 2010, he launched Gauthier Soho in what was formerly Lindsay House. His menus famously list the calorie count of every dish.
