Square Meal Review of Koffmann's at The Berkeley ?

Pierre Koffmann has warmed up considerably since the haughty, glamorous days of La Tante Claire, and his approach to things is now more phlegmatic, affectionate and affable – like ‘the father showing the sons how it’s done’, observes one reader. Customers who know their food and wine feel right at home in this cheerful, split-level dining room with its masses of flowers and friendly, thoughtful staff –you’ll find toffs and teenagers, captains of industry, family parties, and Diet Coke next to dry martinis. It’s low-key, classy and under-stated (‘more Mercedes than Ferrari’), with ‘incredibly tasty’ big-hearted food evoking the spirit of Koffmann’s beloved Gascony. Highlights are many and varied – from squid bolognese and thick slabs of roast monkfish wrapped in bacon to herb-crusted lamb and the legendary glazed pig’s trotter stuffed with sweetbreads and morels. In short, ‘serious munching’ for today’s grown-up Francophiles.

  1. Koffmann’s has been my guilty pleasure for a few years now. I didn’t live in London at the height of Pierre Koffmann’s culinary reign, but if Koffmann’s at the Berkeley is anything to go by, I can easily understand what all the fuzz was about. In a year when London has been bombarded with openings of French bistros, brasseries and wine bars, Koffmann’s at the Berkeley is the yardstick by which others are measured against...

  2. Sitting alongside Marcus Wareing’s **2 star restaurant in the Berkeley Hotel is Pierre Koffmann’s self-titled French brasserie. Though don’t be fooled into thinking that this modest restaurant will be a disappointment beside its illustrious neighbour. Koffmann is a chef who knows a thing or two about elevating bistro food up to the highest level...

  3. After having visited Koffman’s before last year (see post) and feeling very satisfied with the meal, I was keen to try it again this winter. The food at Koffman’s is best described as ‘deluxe food porn’ or ‘posh comfort food’ . The flavours are so soulful, the cooking so skillful and the setting so posh, that it just leaves the visitor with that moorish feeling...

    Nordic Nibbler :: Koffmann

    It's not often you get the chance to eat at the restaurant of a genuine culinary legend, but chef Pierre Koffmann is just that. His first restaurant, La Tante Claire, opened in Chelsea in 1977 and went on to gain three Michelin stars, which it held for 15 years until it moved location to the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge. There the restaurant continued until 2003 when Koffmann retired from cooking (or so he thought). The chefs that have trained under Koffmann read like a who's who of Britain's Michelin hall of fame: Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing, Eric Chavot, and Tom Kitchin. So it was with a huge amount of anticipation that Mrs. Nibbler and I went for dinner at Pierre Koffmann's eponymously titled restaurant...
