Galvin at Windows Restaurant Review: The venue is elegant, all chocolate brown and cream colors, with a bronze ceiling sculpture that snakes its way down the middle of the room, highlighting the central raised area, punctuated by the bar at one end and surrounded on three sides by the truly glorious views over London. The swish Keith Hobbs design (he of Nobu and The Clarence hotel in Dublin amongst others) makes this one of London’s top establishments. The kitchen, under the leadership of Chris Galvin, produces a superb, contemporary French menu, based on seasonal ingredients. Dine on the likes of rabbit rillette with pickled carrot, black mooli and mustard mayonnaise for a starter, then move on to a comforting slow-cooked pork belly with aubergine purée, braised gem lettuce and cider jus. Desserts are as good as they come; wines by the glass lead to satisfying pairings; the service is right on target; and the prices are very fair given the location and the cooking. The restaurant works hard and responds to the economic climate with competitively priced set menus. Lunch menu 2 courses £28, 3 courses £33, 3 courses with half bottle of wine, water and coffee £55. Menu Prestige 3 courses £75. Tasting Menu (whole table only) £110, including wine £169.
