L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon’s Japanese-inspired counter concept has won plaudits worldwide. A stylish Indian Rosewood counter, sourced from Canada, surrounds the kitchen to give diners front-row seats. Senses are aroused as head chef Xavier Boyer and his team create modern French classics before your eyes. Interaction is welcomed and dishes - in large or tapas-size portions – are often prepared to diners’ specifications. Of course, you may choose to simply sit back and enjoy the spectacle. Whether participating, observing or attending to a companion, you can look forward to an exciting combination of flavours, textures and quality ingredients.

Review

The open kitchen deploys top-drawer ingredients to telling effect in the tasting menu, a cavalcade of intense, finely calibrated treats … [Squaremeal]

Diners are made to feel welcome... The presentation of the food was faultless, and three out of the four dishes scored highly. [World Foodie Guide]

No matter how sunny the day is, visitors feel as though night has instantly fallen when they walk into L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon. But when your eyes adjust, you’ll see a seductive looking restaurant. In Le Salon bar, which has a '1979 St. Tropez feel', drinkers sip cocktails on James Bond-style red leather pouffes. [Coutts Food]

To experience the best of the stellar chef’s show-stopping firepower, book a seat at the bar in the dimly lit ground-floor ‘atelier’ with its dark, minimalist red & black surrounds & soundtrack of cool beats.  [Squaremeal]

Service, noise level, comfort and the beauty of the room (and this room is like a red and black-lacquered Japanese box with a living wall of leaves) all have their part to play, and here all those elements slot neatly together to result in a real joy of a restaurant. [Gastronomy Domine]
