Bar Boulud at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park 333

Squaremeal Review of Bar Boulud at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park ?

Clever design, top-drawer Franco/US brasserie food, on-the-ball service and a formidable wine list have made the Mandarin Oriental’s casual restaurant a must for any person-about-town’s little black book. Bar Boulud’s well-dressed cosmopolitan crowd “love the buzz” and know that the menu will deliver exactly what they’re after. That means top-grade USDA steaks and arguably the finest burgers in town (try the ‘piggy’ – a beef patty with BBQ pork, jalapeño mayo, cabbage and a Cheddar bun), plus boards of fabulous charcuterie ‘maison’ for the hardened carnivores, alongside various smart salads and assorted French classics ranging from oeufs meurette and rillons croustillants (crispy pork belly with Dijon mustard) to moules provençale, coq au vin and herb-crusted lamb en croûte with spinach purée, green beans and mint jus. After that, there are posh puds such as gâteau basque or passion fruit ‘royal’, while perfect cheeses please the rest. If you can drag yourself away from generous pourings of house Champagne, the G&T list is worth investigating.

Nov 2013

Went for a casual lunch with sister on a day Daniel Boulud lui meme was visiting from New York. The team was helpful and have an eye on details. The menu has a a large selection of French classics from cold cuts to moules a la creme or fresh shellfish platter. Good burger as well…on a yummy brioche bien sur. Good size portions. Large selection of wine by the glass and even chateau Yquem on the dessert wine list. We will be coming back, you have service without stuffiness and nice food at the mandarin...

Editor's pick Have eaten at Bar Boulud twice for business engagements over the past year and decided to test out more casually with my wife, daughter and her boyfriend on a Thursday night. Was a bit surprised to be able to book a table only 24 hours in advance at preferred time. Service was great from the moment we stepped in the door, from door staff to bar to table – all very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Long Island Iced Teas at the bar were exceptionally good. Food choice comes pretty much...

Best burger hands down!

by   (1)

Jun 2013

I made reservations here because I had heard the burgers were one of the top ten in London. And I was not disappointed! The staff were extremely attentive and friendly. The drinks were a little overpriced £4 for water and £5 for 1/2 pint of beer but if you want somewhere with warm ambience & amazing food this is the place!

The best part of the menu are the high-end burgers. This is not a full fledged restaurant offering but rather a high-end gourmet bar offering. As such not a bad place to drop in and enjoy a drink and some food at their bar

Currently one of the most fun and happening brasseries in town, it has a unique ambience that exudes easy-going Knightsbridge class. The foie gras burger (and fries) is right up there with the best in town. Lots of fun.

Editor's pick This has become one of our favourite weekend lunch haunts. The menu (which is changed periodically) always has several dishes which are both original and delicious; one is spoiled for choice, The sausages are extremely good value; try the Boudin Blanc and the Merguez. The chicken and duck exceptionally good and the burgers great. Also a good selection of meats and fish, so I often have trouble choosing. Try the truffled mash, a dish to die for. As several people have noted, it's also the buzz which...

Having heard about the “best burgers in London” it was only a matter of time before he managed to persuade me that we should try out Bar Boulud. Saturday 2pm for late lunch was the eventual date and we were joined by another couple. The place was very buzzy and thanks to all of the twists and turns of the underground venue, it wasn't overwhelmining loud. An interesting mix of families, couples, ladies who lunch and those clearly suffering from shopping-induced exhaustion. Everything on the menu...

    PANDA EATS LONDON :: PANDA EATS LONDON: Bar Boulud, Knightsbridge

    I was here for a belated birthday treat because it has one of the best value three course set dinners on offer in London, however seeing as this was suppose to be a birthday treat for the Panda I went a little “gourmet” and opted for the Piggie Burger instead, yes that’s considered gourmet for me! Bar Boulud is located in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge, opened by the famed Frenchman on the other side of the pond, Daniel Boulud. It is the only non-North American outpost of Daniel Boulud who owns a 2 star Michelin restaurant in New York.

    The Critics Guide :: Bar Boulud London UK

    Having had a wonderful experience at Bar Boulud last year we were keen to visit again and sample some different dishes from their menu. Located in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Bar Boulud is an upscale brasserie with a huge emphasis on delivering excellent service. The term ‘brasserie’ doesn’t do this restaurant justice, the service rivals any fine dining establishment and the surroundings are rather sumptuous. The food is traditional favourites served to an impeccable standard.
