Koffmann’s Restaurant @ The Berkeley

Koffmaan's Knightsbridge

Pierre Koffmann’s Restaurant at The Bekeley Hotel is no doubt bringing a little bit of France to Knightsbridge. Its rustic and South West dishes are a real treat for all the senses.

The atmosphere is informal yet very much fine dining, the staff is absolutely wonderful and extremely welcoming ! I was lucky to visit the restaurant on a busy Saturday evening and I would highly recommend it. I actually hope to come back very soon as my dinner was a delight.

What a beautiful decorated staircase !

The menu choices was wonderful for a French person, all the dishes reminded me my childhood. I would have happily tasted…every singled dishes !!

I was so happy to be treated to a Pissaladière for amuse bouche !  A pissaladiere is a pizza-like dish made in southern France in the Var District...that i visited many times as you know !

I ordered the tortellini de langoustine with a langoustine broth £12. I could taste a hint of lemongrass which lighted up the starter perfectly.

My guest went for the calamari facon bolognaise £11. What a brilliant idea to use the calamari as “pasta” like a spaghetti bolognaise !

Special of the day : the beef wellington £30 which was incredibly tender. My only regret : too salty.....

My only regret : too much salt was added to the dish…..

During our dinner we were spoiled with delicious breads… I love a restaurant which is not stingy with bread ! I fell in love with the olive tapenade bread…

Not so old fashion, the crepe suzette £10 was a real success and a light dessert to finish our wonderful meal.

A 3 course meal and wine is definitely not on the cheap side, but it is all well worth it if like me you are a real foodie !
