SquareMeal Review of Coda by Eric Chavot

Coda is the newest addition to the Royal Albert Hall’s food and beverage line-up, with a menu designed by French chef Eric Chavot (formerly of Brasserie Chavot). The restaurant is exclusive to ticket holders and opens two hours before shows begin. Set in a grand and stylish dining room, the space is decked out in tones of deep purples and greys, alongside plush seats and glittering chandeliers, while there is also a standalone bar by the entrance, which serves Champagne, cocktails and a selection of G&Ts.

The kitchen meanwhile turns out an agreeable menu of European, French-accented dishes, with starters, including a silky poached hen’s egg resting in a pool of smoky white bean velouté, impressing. Mains encompass roasted lemon sole and ricotta gnocchi, and a classic fillet steak, which comes with crispy, golden triple-cooked chips and onion rings. There’s a fun novelty to returning for dessert during the show’s interval, with refreshing options including a pot of creamy pistachio mousse and chilled chocolate, or a delicately assembled apple tart topped with crispy pastry and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Slick service ensures that you don’t feel rushed despite the time constraints, and considering the destination, prices are not unreasonable. Coda is not big on spectacle or innovation, but delivers with a well-executed menu in chic surrounds – just save the sparkle for the show.
