An amazing tasting menu from head chef Andrew Cole. The surprise extras and attention to detail made our meal a really special occasion. The staff were welcoming and the food was excellent! We would highly recommend and will definitely be returning for seconds!

My wife and I made a trip to La Belle Epoque and its absolutely a must visit!! The restaurant itself is lovely, a calm atmosphere, with modern decor, provides a fantastic dining experience. The service is fantastic, with welcoming, attentive, and knowledgable staff. The wine...list if great, with a selection that will satisfy any pallet. All this then builds you up for the main event, the food. It is absolutely exceptional!! Modern takes on classics are combined with new, playful dishes that meant we had some new experiences and tried some things we had never had before. The food really is amazing, we had some intriguing starters, some exciting mains, and then some outstanding puddings to finish. We both agreed that it was one of the best meals we have ever had, truly outstanding. We cannot recommend La Belle Epoque enough, treat yourself to an amazing meal there!!More

As i was staying in the Sofitel Hotel, i succumbed to the convenience of eating at the La Belle Epoque restaurant as it's in the hotel. I had eaten there a few years back and i was keen to go there again. The initial welcome...was really friendly and i ordered a glass of wine. After that, i struggled to get served another glass and i gave up asking after a while. Starter - Watercress and garlic veloute. I didn't like the taste to be honest. That's my fault for choosing it and not going for something i knew i would like. Main - Halibut, button mushrooms etc. I found the fish a bit on the dry side, but the rest was fine. Overall, i don't think it was value for money and i regretted not eating in the Sphere Bar & Lounge, which served food at a 1/3rd of the price of the Belle Epoque.More

What an amazing experience! My husband and I had the tasting menu which was incredible. The food was beautifully presented and the most amazing flavour combinations. My favourite dishes were the artichoke salad and the rhubarb mille-feuille. Also, the amazing staff that are friendly and...attentive. Will definitely return soon!More

Dinner at Heatrow Airport? One of the best culinary experiences ever! Every dish was excellent and well presented. The staff was kind and professional. Whoever runs the kitchen must be a perfectionist. 👌 Thank you, we'll definitely come back.

I have eaten here four times. It's the main reason that I stay at the Sofitel LHR T5. On two of those occasions, I had the tasting menu, and asked to meet the chef on the second occasion because it was so extraordinarily good. This...place takes my breath away, and I've eaten at Michelin star places all over the world. Please bring back La Belle Epoque.More

The restaurant is incrible from the decor style, great service of attendants to amazing food. I was delighted by the treatment I received and delicious food. I will certainly eat there again if I stay at Sofitel... But it is worth going there if you...are around Terminal 5 at Heathrow. The waiter who served me was Andrei and was amazing. Great work and company. Thank you all La Belle Epoque staff.More

We were blown away by our meal at Sofitel's La Belle Epoque theme restaurant within T5 at London Heathrow on our overnight last weekend. Had never really had time to try it on many prior layovers, but this time we did, and so glad we...had the opportunity. Have to say that the meal was delicious, the service impeccable and the value outstanding (we did an earlybird prix fixe at 7p.m., which was a new option at the hotel, by the way. The creativeness of the menu, obviously from a master chef, was fantastic. The ingredients were very obviously fresh, ideally prepared and well-presented. We were happy campers, for sure.More

Found myself in this restaurant on a Saturday night before a Sunday flight. Despite sitting on my own, I didn't feel out of place. Excellent service from all members of staff. The food was beautiful, central London restaurant quality without a central London price. Can't...make a criticism of any part of my visit.More

The restaurant is part of the Sofitel Hotel which has its own car park. When you arrive at the hotel main entrance, they will park the car for you.

Maybe email Sofitel at Heathrow, and request a menu?
