Laurent at Café Royal is the new Grill and Sushi Bar located within Hotel Café Royal on London's Regent Street. The restaurant marks a return to London for French-born Laurent Tourondel, and his first venue in Europe.

Laurent features an array of newly designed areas including booths and views of either elegant Regent Street or the grand hotel lobby with a spectacular Murano glass chandelier at the centre.
International influences are evident across the new menu where Laurent has combined his experiences to open a restaurant unlike anything he has done before. An open kitchen and grill offer the finest grilled meat and fish; whilst sushi masters prepare inventive sushi, sashimi and raw fish from the sushi bar.
The bar offers a wide selection of wines from both new and classic regions with a focus on the French 'regal regions', alongside cocktails and fine spirits.


On Wednesday 18th July, all reservations between 3pm - 6pm will be seated in the Gallery.

A great little find off the busy Regents Street. Nicely decorated. Great service. Food's not bad too. A little pricey but maybe I will try the set menu next time and see what's that like - the people next to us had it and it looks good.

What a wonderful evening all around.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. The food, service and the ambiance was top notch. The set menu was lovely and an excellent value.
The staff, especially the Australian gentleman was so personable and connected well with us.
We will definitely be back!

Food excellent - choice excellent, wish I'd tried the sashimi but the cornish crab was great.
Wonderful dover sole - maybe just a tad overcooked.
Bar service was slow - I think becasue only one person at the bar doing cocktails as well.

Best pre-theatre dinner I can remember. Excellent food and ambiance, and service was measured but assured we would get to the theatre on time. Strongly recommended. Sushi looked excellent too.

Having read reviews and spoken to other friends about Café Royal, I wasn't really sure what to expect. However, I was blown away by the opulent yet welcoming interior. The staff were friendly, yet professional and understood we were after a relaxing dinner. The food was absolutely 5* and good portioned for a restaurant of such calibre, a friend we dined with remarked that the sushi was "the best in her life". Would dine here again for sure.

The experience was exactly as one would expect from such restaurants. Comfortable, comforting, welcome, pleasant, polite and relaxed but most attentive staff. Drinks were on top, wines definitely not overpriced. The food was something to come back for, as we are already planning.

A little hidden gem in the first floor of cafe royal. Restaurant is in two sections with one side overlooking the balcony to the front rotating doors and the other side overlooking Regent Street. Service was attentive and polite whilst being super efficient. The cheese Yorkshire pudding like bread was novel and was much enjoyed. My starter of Dorset crab salad was full of fleshy white crab meat and the garnishes were well suited to the crab. My blacken cod main was delicate and beautifully cooked with complementary purées. Dessert of cheese was good with caramelised hazelnuts and crisp bread with quince. Overall. A nice hidden gem amongst the bustle of the wet end.

Overall a good experience with some caveats. The entrance and surroundings are outstanding. The main room needs something to improve the atmosphere. Too stark. The food is either acceptable of very good, mostly the latter. Main dishes and desserts were superb. The sushi starter was bland. Service was very willing but quite untrained and not professional. Drinks choices are good but overpriced as is the food. Very small quantities leave one satisfied and ravenous at the same time. Lots of potential but input is required or it will not make it, evidenced by the almost empty restaurant on fathers day

Lovely food and good service in an historic building on Regent St with a view over the street on a summers evening hard to beat.
The ground floor Bubbles café is a good way to start and mid week the Ziggy Bar a great alternative with Bowie and friends photographs

We celebrated our anniversary here, and were given a great table overlooking Regent Street. The staff were friendly and attentive both front of house and our server. The a la carte menu is very expensive, but the set menu is great value - and the food was excellent. The wine selection is also pricey, so you'll need to choose carefully - but overall for the level of service, quality and presentation of the food, the ambience and location, I would highly recommend Laurent, especially for a celebration.

It’s a beautiful restaurant but food was a bit mediocre. We were seated next to the kitchen grill and it was unbearably warm. When I asked to move to another table we were told it was impossible, even though the restaurant was relatively empty.

This was a fun evening in a lovely venue. I loved that we were able to choose healthy and low calorie options. The meal was quite good and the dessert was unbelievably delicious. This is it... a drink, a light meal (if that is what you want as there is so much to choose from)- drink, dessert and tea. Perfect.

Business lunch for two. Standard international décor. Good display of whiskies. Intrusive background music. All of the sofa seating seemed to be on a seam. Uncomfortable. On first glance menu choice seemed to be between sushi or sashimi and burgers which seemed a bit odd. We settled on Japanese as a starter and two salads (one steak and one lobster). The protein part was pretty good but the actual salad a bit of a miss. £135 for two incl a small carafe of house white. Better offerings in the West End at this price point.
