Bar Boulud is not only about food. Which is impeccable anyway... It is also about the buzz and elegance of the place. On a Thursday night the room was busy but the service was efficient and to the spot like always. We had the BB Burgers for mains, with foie gras, short ribs, horseradish mayo and black onions, which were... More

This is a favourite haunt of mine, because I love French food, and it does not get much better than this. I had the grilled sole, out of this world and everything - service, food and wine are tip top. The atmosphere is great, they are attentive without being overwhelming and you can enjoy yourself without being either neglected or... More

My second visit to Bar Boulud and the seating area was very spacious and bright. Went for a deal of 3 courses with 1/2 carafe of Riesling. Starters consisted of chicken terrine (fairly big portion) with piece of bread or Mediterranean mezze( 3 very small dish),followed by Coq au Riesling with small potatoes and garnish. For dessert we had a... More

For some strange reason Knightsbridge offers relatively limited choices for a casual yet pleasant restaurant experience. While Bar Boulud is not exactly a budget restaurant, prices in relation to the quality are reasonable. The food is always good, many of which have a bit of a twist or if you prefer provide the satisfaction of a proper bistro fair. I... More

Took my 2 girls on a Thursday night for a treat. Great selection of starters and mains as well as an extensive wine list.. 2 of us had the burgers which are excellent of course but the other dishes seemed fantastic as well. If I had a criticism it would be that Vegetarians arent well catered for and my youngest... More

Bar Boulud's best entree is their hamburgers! I love the atmosphere because of the dark wood and perfect lighting ambiance, soft and classy. It has a great wine list and the well-dressed service staff are friendly and attentive.

I had a fairly high expectation for this restaurant but the food was a bit disappointing. The French onion soup lacked flavour and the escargot didn't smell fresh and was very small and bland. For the main, the cod dish was just ok and coq au vin was a safe choice. All in all, I would not go back to... More

Description
Set in bustling Knightsbridge, the award-winning Bar Boulud, London is a French-inspired bistro and wine bar at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, under the direction of renowned Lyon-born chef Daniel Boulud, following the successful format of Bar Boulud New York. The full à la carte bistro menu, served Monday through Saturday and Sunday evenings, is based on seasonal, rustic French cooking, and includes an array of charcuterie, house-made terrines, pâtés, hams, saucissons, boudins and more, specially prepared onsite. Also featured are Boulud's popular American transplants, the "Yankee" and "Piggie" burgers, as well as signature "BB" Burger unique to London. A £17 two or £19 three course 'Bouchon Menu', changing weekly, is available until 7pm, inclusive of a glass of house wine, as an excellent option for pre-theatre dining. New to 2015, Bar Boulud now serves Sunday brunch from 11am to 3.30pm at £39, with Children's Menu options also available. Bar Boulud features an impressive selection of wines available by the glass and by the bottle with a focus on the Rhône and Burgundy regions, as well as a wide selection of draught and bottled beers from noteworthy English and Continental breweries. Serving great wine by the glass from rare, large-format bottles is a Bar Boulud trademark.

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods.

Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
