All reader reviews by Very unhappy customer
I will start with an apology to Tentazioni - for not having been here before seeing i live 2 mins walk from the restaurant.
I took my heavily pregnant girlfriend to enjoy a night off before impeding birth and i/she could not sing enough praise.
I had ravioli with foie gras for starters and my girlfriend had the mascaporne with sun dried tomatoes (she still swears this is the best starter she's EVER had). For me the main just took the whole dining experience to a whole different ball game! Steak with patato gratin & foie gras whilst my girlfiend had past with crab and munk fish..!! The service, presentation, the food, the setting, attention to detail was second to none!!! How this restaurant is not a michelin star is a travesty!! Even the wine recommended by the maitre'd was 1st class!!
I cant wait to go back!!
If the staff are reading this, THANK YOU for a fantastic evening.

I took my pregnant girlfriend to Galvins on Saturday (12th) and i can not sing enough praise of this restaurant. Having been to a shocking establishment that is Boho Mexica a few weeks before, this was manna from heaven - i mean, an absolute delight..! Unbeknown to us there is a fixed 3 course lunch menu priced @ £25.50. I had to look around for Beadle as it didnt make sense. Regardless, we went for the fixed menu and after starters (Mackerel with some fancy sauce) we knew we were in for a treat! Main course (beef cheeks and Sea bream) could not be faulted.. The Maitre d was super helpful, knowledgeable and made us feel at home & he even changed the dessert menu to accommodate my girlfriend. The wine was a delight - i was the only one drinking and the choice was inspired. Ok, maybe the lunch menu is reasonably priced, but i didnt note a massive difference to the dinner one. Thank you La Chapelle for making our day - we shall most definitely be back!!.
