Sunday lunchWe had a 2.30 booking for 4 people and I was surprised everything was still available on the menu. All meals were cooked to perfection. Highly recommend the Roast Beef, tasty and very tender.12/05/2013 00:00:00Efficient staff.
For the quality of the food I didn't think it was over expensive.

Gorgeous food, beautiful setting, terrific service02/05/2013 00:00:00Sunday Lunch at The BelvedereThe food, service & location were idyllic. The Sunday lunch menu is fantastic value at just under £30 per head for 3 divine courses. The menu was varied with lots of delicious options to choose from, I had the Fois Gras, Roast Beef & Cheesecake which I would really recommend! The relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff & stunning surroundings made for a perfect Sunday.28/04/2013 00:00:00BirthdayWe found the restaurant through Tripadviser. We were looking for something special for a very specialoccasion. And we found it! Everything was very satisfying. Wonderful staff and wonderful food and menu. Our family will rate it TEN stars!18/04/2013 00:00:00LOVELY FOOD - LOVELY SURROUNDINGSLOVELY FOOD - LOVELY SURROUNDINGS - EXCELLENT SERVICE !!!!!13/04/2013 00:00:00Outstanding!I went on a Friday night and it was only half full. The ambiance was one of quietness and elegance.The four of us has a wide selection of meat, fish, and vegetarian dishes. All were welcomed and commented upon as being very good. The setting in the day time is also outstanding and this gem located in Holland Park is a real gem to visit.12/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely park settingThough a little difficult to find In Holland Park, the setting for this restaurant is lovely. The reservations team were helpful in accommodating our change of time, though there were 3 other tables only occupied as we arrived at 13.45. We chose from the a la carte menu which was more expensive than the food justified. That said, the confit de canard and the sea bass were cooked as they should be. The rioja was full of flavour. We seemed to have several waiters but overall service was fine. Our impression was a nice lunch but not a super-gourmet experience04/04/2013 00:00:00We visited The Belvedere onWe visited The Belvedere on a very cold evening, and the restaurant was quiet. We had not dined there before. The grounds and the roaming peacocks are very impressive.
The restaurant's main dining room is nicely done. The high ceilings, decor, and lighting are tasteful, inviting, and well integrated - upscale but not over the top. It is a fun and attractive space.
The service and food were terrific. The staff attended to us and to our children warmly and professionally. The halibut and veal chop were both excellent. There is a simple and interesting children's menu that offers three courses, all of which were appealing and well prepared.
Really enjoyed it and look forward to visiting again.03/04/2013 00:00:00An Excellent RestaurantI have organised corporate dinners and dined at this restaurant with friends and family - I have never been disappointed with the food or service. Always a treat to come here!27/03/2013 00:00:00Brilliant BelvedereWe've been visiting Belvedere for years since Marco first revamped its wonderful space and even since he sold it. It's been hit and miss at times, but last Friday it was just brilliant and it feels like its got its mojo back big time. Everything clicked: menu, food, wine, room, service, price...a wonderful, memorable evening. Sheer class.22/03/2013 00:00:00A very enjoyable lunchWe visited with a friend for lunch on Saturday. It's a lovely setting and a very nice room with interesting art. The menu choice was exceptional. The food was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed it very much. There is a good wine list to compliment the food. The service was just right. We look forward to returning soon.16/03/2013 00:00:00It was a very good evening,It was a very good evening, a romantic place with delicious food and piano in the back !
many thanks16/03/2013 00:00:00Memorable meal in a unique ambienceHaving strolled past Belvedere many times on our visits to Holland Park, we'd been eagerly waiting for a special occasion to book a table there. We went for dinner with a couple of friends and had a delightful meal in what is rather a unique decor for a restaurant in central London. Very much appreciated the intimacy and tranquil environment, discreet and highly professional service. Menu is appealing and innovative yet not overstated. We loved the starters, the seared scallops were particularly delightful and the desserts were subtly flavoursome and light. Meat and fish for the mains were beautifully cooked, they would have been perfect had a little more preparation perhaps gone into some of the accompanying vegetables. Highly recommended.16/03/2013 00:00:00What more could you want?Excellent food and service, with a lunchtime table d'hote of remarkable value for money, in a most attractive room situated in a delightful park...what more could you possibly want?14/03/2013 00:00:00I love the setting and feelI love the setting and feel of the Belvedere. I took my partner there for a birthday treat and it was a good choice. The service was attentive, the piano music was relaxing and the food and wine were excellent. The starters all looked delicious- including those I spotted going to other tables. As for main courses, there were several fish options (not many veggie ones), so I was happy. I wasn't sure if beetroot would work well with white fish but it was a delicious combination. My partner happily tucked into his venison, which came in generous slices.
Our meal was at 8pm, so it was dark outside, and the Belvedere is undoubtedly at its best at little later in the year. There were fewer diners than on my previous visits.13/03/2013 00:00:00Lunch at the BelvedreA truly unique restaurant set in my favourite park in London 'Holland Park'. The lunch 'menu of the day' is extremely good value and was quite simply delicious. The service could not be faulted, building is well maintained and the decor excellent with the bonus of a Damian Hirst. We were blessed with a beautiful spring day 'first of the year' - if you are ever in this fantastic park and fancy some lunch, you will not be disappointed.05/03/2013 00:00:00Great Service and AtmosphereWent to the Belvedere last Saturday. The quality of the food did not disappoint but it was the service that stood out most. By far the best I have experienced, with the staff very courteous, polite and attentive from start to finish. When the pianist started up at 7pm, it really made the evening even more special.02/03/2013 00:00:00Classic French excellenceDined here with three friends on a Saturday evening and would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a special meal in an elegant location.
Starters were all superb (scallops, terrine and quail eggs) while the mains were also very good (especially the rack of lamb).
All dishes were very generous proportions and there was also a good selection for the vegetarian in our party.
The wine list is extensive and perhaps strongly priced, but overall the Belvedere offers pretty good value given the standard of the food and ambience.23/02/2013 00:00:00Lovely eveningBeautiful venue in the midst of gardens. Soft lighting & gentle music playing in the background makes this venue suitable for romntic date or special occasion. Food portions were decent and flavourful but felt that very dish was over salted15/02/2013 00:00:00A Valentines DreamA wonderful evening with highly experienced and silver service waiters.
Excellent food and never rushed
A wonderful evening
A Tad expensive, but its worth going the extra mile.14/02/2013 00:00:00Great Lunch!The Belvedere is a great place for Sunday lunch. A varied set lunch menu, generous portions, good food and friendly service. Recommended.20/01/2013 00:00:00Visit LondonTook my boyfriend on a cold Thursday evening when we were on a break in London, maybe mot the best time of year as it was quite only 3 other tables in. Think better to visit when the nights are lighter and you can see the gardens or for a nice lunchtime venue . Food was great no complaints at all and very professional service. Pianist needed a bit of a helping hand with his choice of songs we thought, and had 2 breaks in fhe short time we were there. Nice for a special occasion would go again in the summer for a lunch !16/01/2013 16:00:00The Belvedere is in a greatThe Belvedere is in a great location and ideal for a special occasion.

The Staff is very attentive and helpful without being intrusive.09/01/2013 16:00:00The BelvederVery nice ambience, good selection of food, and good service06/01/2013 00:00:00It's on my bloghttp://rotwu.wordpress.com/2013/01/05/the-belvedere/04/01/2013 16:00:00Birthday SurpriseI booked the Belvedere for my daughter's 30th birthday lunch. I noted this on the booking form and was pleasantly surprised when a candle topped pudding arrived for my daughter. The ambiance of this restaurant is exceptional - we love it in the winter months when the light is something special in this brightly lit venue.
The cost was somewhat high for 4 at well over 200 GBP. The food is at the high end but not quite gourmet. Portions can be on the large side - so tough to get through 3 course set menu - which was the only option we had.
Fun to sit and watch the other celebrations as ours unfolded.28/12/2012 16:00:00Beautiful venue, with outstandingBeautiful venue, with outstanding service and food. My favourite restaurant. My only criticism is that the menu doesn't change very much from visit to visit. But we love it for special occasions.27/12/2012 16:00:00Christmas Eve mealMy girlfriend and I dined here at 6pm on Christmas Eve as we work and live very local. The restaurant itself is lovely, the staff were very attentive.
The first two courses were great. It was just a shame that the dessert was so bad. The dessert menu is possibly one of the best I have seen on paper, it was just badly executed and was like it had been pre-made a long time before. The interesting thing was that the restaurant is a Marco Pierre White restaurant, and I have had a similar let down in another of his restaurants with the creme brulee. If they sorted that part of the menu then it would have been a great meal.24/12/2012 00:00:00Wonderful placeI don't have the word to describe this magical place. Very raffinated, elegant and smart, this restaurant, more than the magical place, purpose one of the best courses that I ever ate in my life. The musical ambiance (piano interpretation) was so perfect. Everything for very attractive prices!!!
Thank you for this magical and romantic moment and I hope coming back very soon in London to eat again in this restaurant...23/12/2012 16:00:00For a special eveningHad a lovely family dinner at Belvedere on Christmas. Beautiful interior, excellent food and ambiance. Service was top notch. Sophisticated but not stuffy. We have teenage boys, and my 85 year old mother - there was something for everyone. It's not cheap, but will definitely go back.23/12/2012 16:00:00Went for Sunday lunch as aWent for Sunday lunch as a birthday treat.

The food was delicious and the menus were delightfully creative. I had the Menu du Jour which really hit the spot, my friend sampled the a la Carte menu and was also as impressed as I was.
The staff were excellent and we will definitely be going back when the opera in the park is on. Will recommend to friends.25/04/2012 00:00:00The Belvedere in Holland ParkThe Belvedere in Holland Park was perfect for an informal business lunch yesterday05/01/2012 16:00:00
