Galvin at windows


With a glamorous 1930s inspired interior, the Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows restaurant and bar has become one of the most talked about destinations in London since opening in May 2006. On the 28th floor of the London Hilton in the heart of Mayfair, it is renowned for its peerless views, including the City, the Shard, Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace. Chef Patron Chris Galvin and his team have created seasonally inspired menus based around modern French haute cuisine.


“The wines showed great personality, with the concentrated flavours of cherries, pronounced blackberries especially in the wines from Maremma. Whereas Acciaiolo wines were more on a spicy side. At the end we had an amazing Vin Santo with complex flavours of nuts and wild honey to match the dessert.”

“The Acciaiolo ’04 was one of those wines that made the table fall silent for a minute, noses in, swirling, faces in awe. What a perfume, what a wine!”
