SquareMeal Review of Galvin at Windows (bar)

"VERY GOOD"

The greige and soft-gold space-age interior of this suave sky lounge screams Swinging Sixties, the thrusting decade when hemlines and hotels went high-rise. It was here that The Beatles first encountered the Maharishi, the yogi seer who guided their Magical Mystery Tour. Spiritual enlightenment of another sort can be found in cocktail recipes that fuse eastern and western philosophies: reach Nirvana with A Thousand Buddhas (Beefeater gin, hibiscus and spiced eucalyptus), make Sunset Blues (Mortlach Rare single malt, Pedro Ximénez and poppy flower) your new mantra or bliss out with Zen Fizz – a Perrier Jouët sparkler prepared with aged rum and a sorbet of bittersweet matcha tea. Bar food includes Korean fried chicken, 'dog deluxe' and 'something for the ladies' (tenderstem broccoli in romesco sauce, perhaps). The views from the 28th floor are heavenly – and prices aren’t exactly earth-bound, either.

Was here for a xmas lunch with colleagues. Had booked a table by the windows well in advance...got a table as far away as possible from the windows. Food was wonderful..as expected when you pay 75 pounds per person for a 3- course meal. Service was efficient but my no means particularly friendly. Not once did the manager ask whether it was ok that they put us at a table far removed from the windows even though that was the primary reason for coming here in the first place. Not the first time have been here...but after this underwhelming experience...at 700 pounds for 4 people...unlikely to come back....

I have been coming to Galvin at the Windows for a good 10 years. And it never fails to disappoint me with its breath taking views. The only slight downside is that it is ever so slightly expensive, but it is worth it when you share it with the right person. I will never ever stop coming here, regardless of the price. Galvin at the Windows has a special place in my heart.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent lunch at Galvin's during the recent Jubilee bank holiday. The service was first class, discreet, yet attentive. The restaurant manager seated us at a window seat with a magnificent view over Buckingham Palace. We selected the very affordable Menu du Jour and the first course of mackerel tartar, followed by a main of belly pork, were both tasty and perfectly cooked. Throughout the meal I was most impressed with the quiet and yet efficient level of service, the pleasant helpful manner of the staff and their detailed responses to any questions asked. The restaurant manager checked during the meal that we were happy with both food and service. We were invited onto the restaurant balcony to watch the Red Arrow ‘fly past’; a fitting climax to a special lunch. Hats off to the staff at Galvin's for making our day special.
