SquareMeal Review of Hans’ Bar & Grill - Pavilion Road

Silver Award

A glamorous all-day affair that’s completely at home in this chic corner of Chelsea, Hans’ links the five-star 11 Cadogan Gardens hotel with Pavilion Road. Smartly dressed staff lead you to the stylish dining room, a calming oasis where plants hang from the ceiling and white marble tabletops are paired with comfy pea-green chairs.

Similar refinement is evident in the concise menu of smart European dishes: six starters, five mains and meats from the grill. We began with snacks, including crispy peppered squid served with a tangy citrus aïoli, before starters of pleasingly fresh Brixham crab prettily decorated with juicy chunks of apple (looks are important here). To follow, main-course steaks or poached salmon are worth considering, but we opted for an artistically presented plate of ricotta and truffle gnocchi: a surprisingly light, fluffy dish made tastier with the subtle addition of spinach. Another choice, pimped-up Wagyu beefburger, arrived sandwiched between a brioche bun and layered with Emmental and pancetta. Desserts include a crumbly, slightly bitter orange cake served with a scoop of almond sorbet, and the notable drinks list contains almost 200 wines together with plenty of classic cocktails.

With a well-executed (if slightly predictable) menu and lavish surrounds, Hans’ is well-suited to its moneyed clientele – from Chelsea’s bright young things to mature ladies who lunch. If dinner seems too big a commitment, try the breakfast where freshly-baked pastries and an English breakfast are among the enticements.

Located a stone’s throw away from Sloane Square in Chelsea, Hans’ Bar and Grill lives on picturesque Pavilion Road between a row of neighbouring artisan food outlets and boutique fashion shops. Although affiliated with 5-star boutique hotel 11 Cadogan Gardens, this all-day restaurant and bar offers cosy interiors and excellent service from morning coffees through to late-night cocktails (and everything in between).  

During the warmer months, guests can enjoy a drink or a three-course dinner in the alfresco eating area, providing the perfect viewing point for taking in the restaurant's charming surrounds.  

Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus all shine a light on local produce, and it is used to great effect in dishes that are broadly modern European with lots of international influence. Among the dishes on the dinner menu are the likes of veal Milanese with Jerusalem artichokes, tomatoes and cucumber, pan-fried hake with mussels, curly kale and Champagne sauce, and rack of lamb with celeriac, carrots and garlic puree. There are good options for the more adventurous too, like the seabass ceviche with coconut, chilli and red onion, or a vegan gado-gado bowl of almond tofu, sesame, brown rice, pickled cabbage and kale, with a coconut peanut dressing.

Brunch is also popular here and the brunch menu offers its own dedicated section to eggs, while elsewhere you’ll find further hits, like a classic smashed avocado on toast, a variety of cakes and freshly baked pastries.  

As well as boasting an extensive and worldly wine list, Hans' Bar mixologists also whip up a few house cocktails too - try The Cadogan (Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée, wild jasmine syrup and fresh grapefruit), and the Flowering Hans (Flowering Hans' Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée, peach vodka and Chambord), or request something more classic and they'll be only too happy to oblige.

Terrible experience

We just tried to have dinner there with our 1-year old daughter. Terrible experience and rude service by the manager Alessandro, who was first persistently ignoring us when we entered (even though baby was on my wife’s shoulders clearly very tired and hungry) and then had us stood at the door waiting for 20 mins with no coherent answer as to whether we can get a table. When we finally asked what was going on, he told us to go away and that they had no table for us. We live in the area, and are appalled that such places still survive despite falling demand. We left the restaurant with a crying baby, and are never to return again.

Nice Venue

Visited for breakfast and enjoyed the food.  Unfortunately the COVID requirements like wearing a mask until seated is not being adhered to.  The staff were extremely busy and it was difficult for them to "police" this requirement but the majority arriving to dine inside were unmasked.

I noted several people coming in to use the toilets and then leave (all unmasked).

I also visited a couple of weeks ago for lunch and that was well organised.  The food is ok if not a bit pricey for the quality.

Good vibes

Well executed and well decorated brasserie in this modern development area behind Peter Jones on Sloane Square. Decent service and good if not predictable fare. our crab cakes and venison haunch specials were well executed and delicious. wines by the carafe an added bonus if you can't face the full bottle, or indeed feel like a taste of both white and red. 

the well healed crowd come for the veggie burgers and salads, but they provide decent grills and starters to boot. worth a visit but quite pricey.
