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.

About Hans’ Bar & Grill - Pavilion Road

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. Opening in 2018 as a standalone brasserie, although affiliated with 5-star boutique hotel 11 Cadogan Gardens, this all-day restaurant and bar offers cosy interiors and excellent service from morning lattes through to late-night drinks (and everything in between).  

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

Heading up the kitchen is New Zealand-born head chef, Rowen Babe, who’s appreciation for local produce shines through on every plate, with most dishes paying homage to classic British ingredients and dishes.  

The brunch menu offers its own dedicated section to eggs, while elsewhere you’ll find further greatest brunch hits including avocado on toast, a full English breakfast and freshly baked pastries.  

Sit down for a selection of sandwiches (all served with fries), seasonal salads or a light main for lunch, such as marinated chicken with figs and goat’s cheese or pan-fried salmon served in a flavourful bisque.  

Most lunch options can also be found on the dinner menu, where classic brasserie-style dishes take centre stage. Favourites include the beef burger filled with cheese, bacon jam and aioli, 28-day aged ribeye steak (250g) with salad and fries, plus a selection of veggie and vegan options, too. Don’t hesitate to kick things off with a light bite, where a broader range of culinary influences inspire dishes such as beef tataki with soy egg and pickled shimeji mushrooms and cauliflower wings in a spicy Korean sauce (vegan).  

On Grill Nights (every Thursday and Friday), choose a light bight from the main menu along with a main course for £45. And with a wine list that features over 180 wines, the friendly staff are happy to recommend the perfect accompaniment with your chosen dish.

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.
