More and more London restaurants are opening at the tops of towers, as sky-high dining is becoming an increasingly fashionable characteristic. And with views like the ones you get at the aptly named Galvin at Windows, it’s no surprise. Located on the 28th floor of the Hilton Park Lane, floor to ceiling windows allow diners to see over Hyde Park, central London and beyond.

The menu consists of modern French dishes, put together by Chris Galvin and Marc Hardiman. A number of different menus are available to cater to all palates and price ranges, from set lunchtime deals to the 5 or 7 course tasting menu.

All In London Review

Expensive? Yes, but the cocktails and views are well worth it.

Review Image
You know that the Bar at Galvins isn’t your average bar because you don’t find your average bar located on the 28th floor of the Park Lane Hilton. However, it takes more than a view to convince us to pay upwards of £16 a cocktail.

Fortunately, Galvin at Windows has a menu in tune with the skills of its head barman, Boris Ivan. Inspired by his travels throughout Asia, the updated drinks list is the bounty of clocking up all those air miles.

The bar itself is an opulent affair, low banquet seating lines the edges, dim lighting sets everything in its best hue and there’s that unmistakable hotel bar formality that you either enjoy or you don’t. We enjoy it, although not quite as much we enjoy the views over Hyde Park and beyond from the floor to ceiling windows – it was named for a reason.

We stick to cocktails and complimentary nuts but a bar menu serves small plates and a particularly fine looking Korean beef and kimchi burger from its Michelin starred restaurant. Influenced by South Korea, Hong Kong and Japan, the cocktail list contains a mix between hard-hitting heavy liquor drinks and delicate, fruitier tipples. Being the hard-hitting heavy liquor types we loved the Hikari Quad, a New Style Plantation and pomelo Old Fashioned. Also in touch with our delicate side, the Sencha Highball appealed with its balanced combination of Hakushu 12-year-old, yuzu and sencha tea. See, something for everyone…

The cocktails were hugely impressive but while the prices are high the quality and care in the mixing, combined with the views and hotel bar aura make the Bar at Galvin Windows somewhere worth spending time and money.

This French restaurant is on the 28th floor of the Hilton Park Lane, so you can imagine what the views are like. The food is exquisite – feast on things like seared scallops with oyster emulsion and poached chicken with onion tart and foie gras.

The Hilton on Park Lane boasts this restaurant by the Galvins, who now have a portfolio of seven eateries and can seemingly do no wrong. Their set lunch and prestige menus are great value.

We celebrate London's outstanding service

General manager Fred Sirieix has won several awards, co-hosted Michel Roux’s Service on BBC 2 and founded National Waiters Day in 2012, all of which gives the measure of how seriously Galvin at Windows take their front of house. Coupled with the incredible view from the 28th floor of the Hilton on Park Lane, the experience is quite a treat.

Such a wonderful experience. It was my girlfriends birthday so I requested a table by the window and I was pleased that they accommodated my request. The service was excellent, the food delicious and they had even prepared a little 'Happy Birthday' cake. I would thoroughly recommend Galvin at Wind
