Squaremeal Review of André Garrett at Cliveden ?

As a blue-chip retreat with a reputation for racy aristocratic shenanigans, Cliveden lives and breathes unashamed extravagance, although it’s also an entrancing prospect for high-end gustatory satisfaction. André Garrett’s sumptuous, softly hued dining room sits well amid the hotel’s flamboyantly Italianate glamour with its billowing drapes, ostentatious crystal chandeliers, portraits and velvety fabrics, but for all its adornments, there’s a feeling of genuine intimacy about eating here – and the views are stunning. As befits such a setting, the chef’s gently stimulating contemporary French cuisine promises rich seasonal rewards: “a very pretty take on crab salad” involving avocado, kohlrabi and chickweed plus a quinoa crisp and delicate lemon purée; salt-cured foie gras with notes of plum and saké alongside a “truly memorable” roast duck jelly; grilled mutton cutlet with lamb bolognese and smoked aubergine purée. To finish, there’s “a chocoholic’s dream of a dessert” involving a ganache shard, crumble, aero and Moroccan mint ice cream, while delightful petits fours yield up “layer upon layer of flavour”. To cap it all, the treasure-trove wine list is tailor-made for living the high life.

Editor's pick The glamour associated with Cliveden was in evidence in the atmospheric dining room, although our first impression was that the staff were not fully ready for us at opening time, and we had to request an aperitif since nobody thought to ask if we wanted one. Our doubts were dispelled pretty quickly by our attentive and genuinely interested waiter and by the classy canapés, light and tasty gougères and a chorizo, parmesan and red pepper mousse which we spread happily on some seed crisps....
