Visited in November, average meal but towards the end there were mice running around. Staff laughed and no one seemed that concerned... I wrote 2 emails of complaint but neither received a response...which sums the place up! Avoid, avoid, avoid

Our experience at Joel Rebuchon's Atelier was overall a pleasure for the eyes and tastebuds! We went for the £39 3-course meal and were really happy we did! We were sat at the "bar", where we could see the chefs, since it was an open...More

We went here for lunch and on the basis that an à la carte starter and main course could easily cost £90, we opted for the 5-course tasting menu at £65. It was a good choice. We had some initial doubts about how much to...More

Smart casual would be fine (for gentlemen, khaki slacks and a blazer with a nice shirt -- tie optional). Feel free to dress up a bit better if you'd like, but it isn't necessary.

Drawing on Joel Robuchon's internationally renowned culinary expertise, already accredited with several Michelin Stars at restaurants throughout the world, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon's philosophy is based on serving simple cuisine of the most exceptional quality. This London restaurant has been awarded Michelin Star, as well as 3 AA Rosettes, establishing it as one of the most exceptional places to dine in London. Robuchon's menu delights the palate with clean insightful flavours and refreshingly understated presentation. The dishes are predominantly French with Italian and Spanish influences. The dining experience at L'Atelier is an interactive one. On the ground floor, the eating counter surrounds the entire kitchen where the food is prepared. Robuchon sees the immediate benefit of this Japanese-inspired layout to chefs, as one can gauge the reaction of clients, and even converse with them whilst they watch their food being prepared. Unlike the sister restaurants in Paris and Tokyo, the London restaurant also has another 20 seats where diners can sit opposite each other. Meanwhile, La Cuisine on the first floor offers more traditional restaurant seating in a setting that could be likened to dining in the kitchen itself. Wherever you are seated you will enjoy the highest quality food in an informal, convivial environment. Valet parking is also available. Please note, last reservations are taken half an hour prior to closing time. Dress code: Smart Casual, shorts are not permitted.
