Superb high end dining with an excellent pedigree, Bellamy’s Restaurant has fast become a London icon. With everyone from Norman to Gill to Maschler singing its praises, it’s easy to see why Bellamy’s - run by three former staffers of Annabel’s no less - is top of most foodie visitor’s lists when dining in the capital. Simple and chic, the interior of Bellamy’s is true to the restaurants brasserie roots, with tonal colours and a continental feel. Likewise, head chef Stéphane Pacoud’s menu is unfussy with delightful French seafood dishes a speciality, complementing the venue’s popular oyster bar. Tatler calls the Bellamy’s wine list ‘a thing of beauty’; high praise, well deserved.

The food and service at Bellamy's was excellent; so much so that I have booked another table. The Steak Tartare was one of the best I have ever had.

It is a proper, well run, sophisticated restaurant with professional staff and a great friendly atmosphere.

Highly recommended.

We had a great evening at this cosy spot in Mayfair. Balenced, unpretentious French-fare served by attentive chef and waitress. Poached Skate was one of the best I had. Dover sole, though out of season, was indeed delicious. Modest but carefully picked wines on the list as well. The only downside is the acoustics of the dining room which prevents normal conversation. Despite that, I’d dine here every week.

Consistently good food and value. however, on this occasion the service was lacking a little. I think that there are a few new staff and perhaps because the restaurant was not quite as busy as I have seen it on previous occasions perhaps the urgency was lacking. We would still rate this as one of our regular lunch venues for business meetings.

This restaurant never fails to impress me.The atmosphere is perfect even when very busy.the staff have a way of ensuring that everybody is looked after no matter what is happening.So much about the atmosphere what about the food you ask.well it is fabulous.The small menu can offer even the most discerning diner a taste of perfection.On the number of times we have visited we have never been disappointed and i must confess my favorite is the Dover Sole.Just enough without it being too much and perfectly cooked.Can't wait to return.

This is a very nice traditional restaurant but the service is very French and little standoffish. The clientele are generally older and therefore the ambience is on the quiet and more formal side.

The food was very nice although our steaks were slightly overcooked from the medium well ordered but still very nice.

Another wonderful visit to Bellamy’s. As usual an enjoyable experience. A birthday lunch for my friend who wasn’t disappointed. Attentive service, especially from Luigi who looked after us so well. Food was excellent (Whitbait and Dover Sole) as was the wine. Look forward to next visit soon. Bravo Bellamy’s !!

First time I'd been to this Mayfair restaurant, and I was pleasantly surprised. It's tucked away in a side street just off Berkeley Square, giving the street a sense of calm away from the bustle on most west end streets and Bellamy's itself is a real hidden gem. It's a smart bistro style restaurant, with an immaculate look. We went for the lunch set menu - the terrine was good but the veal main was exceptional, and well accompanied by a thyme jus and potato gratin. Exceptional value for food this good, definitely somewhere on my list to return to.

I went to try this restaurant as it was said a queen's favorite. I am sorry to comment that the food was very under my expectation. We ordered a set menu. Both starter and main were very salty. So we decided not to try dessert as it might have disappoint us. However, the service was great and ambience was private.

This excellent restaurant was spoiled by some of its clientele. Taking friends there for part of their Golden Wedding gift it was spoilt by a rowdy group in the bar beforehand. On moving into the restaurant we found, after while that the group had expanded and were crowding us on the next table. They continued being very loud and the management apologised to us but overall there was nothing to be done. A very special evening spoiled. Nevertheless the food was up to the usual excellent standard and enjoyed by us all.

The food is consistent (good) as is the service but the staff do not look very happy! Nevertheless, they are welcoming. It is expensive for what it is. No doubt to put off some of the more loud individuals but in these straightened times it seems odd to keep increasing the prices if the idea is to attract loyalty from the regulars. It is quite male orientated. There do not seem to be many female customers at lunchtime. It is good for a business lunch/dinner but I am not sure if I would take my wife there.

It was my wife's birthday so we wanted a pukka place in the West End to celebrate and this restaurant was known to us through Simon Binder ( a restauranteur in his own right ) who also happened to be my wife's cousin.
We were shown to a pleasant table for two, in a room that was reasonably full, mostly male and probably merchant bankers, judging by the obvious 'business lunch' vibe going on around us. That was not a criticism, merely an observation. The linen and layout of the table was spot on.
Two glasses of good Champagne enabling us to quaff as we chose from the table d 'hote menu. Both agreed on the saffron and mussel soup, which was excellent. A decent size mini tureen each full of creamy, fishy and saffrony liquid which with the sour dough bread, was exquisite.
Then, it was on to the duck, cooked with greengages and served in its own jus. We accompanied it with creamed potato and saute of spinach. The potato took time to arrive, which caused a murmur of displeasure but didn't really detract from the main course. I had a glass of Graves, which hit the spot.
I had mentioned, sotto voce, to Luigi, the m'aitre d , that it was a 'birthday', so the chef placed a candle in our shared dessert of red berries with ice creme. I felt this was a tad abstemious and the restaurant could have extended the surprise to include a plate of her own, with candle, as it was her birthday. We also shared a Muscat to accompany the dessert. Coffee - double espresso - was served with a generous bowl of delicious chocolate dragees, which we wolfed down.
The bill ? £135 ish with service. Quite reasonable I feel.
So, on balance, it was a good eating experience. My only criticism is that they were a waiting staff member light, so the intuitive attention, that one needs and looks for - in not having to ask for a refill of water, for example , was not always there. On leaving, the proprietor spoke to me about the meal and was very convivial . A nice touch and I think we will be going back.
