Unless you are a frequent flyer, its not often that you dine in an airport. Airport food are often unimaginative, overpriced and overrated but Oriel Grande Brasserie proved us wrong.
The atmosphere was friendly and calm, a far cry from the hustling and bustling that air ports tend to be. We were seated quickly and as we had time to spare, we took a while to look at the menu.
There is no short of French inspired dishes with everything made from scratch onsite and paired with selected wine from all around the world.
Apart from wine, there is also a glamorous bar serving a range of cocktails, champagne, sparkling and beer. The surrounding is tastefully decorated in Art Deco style with influences from the 1930s grande cafes in Paris.
For an airport outlet, food is moderately price and service is excellent.
If you are in a hurry, there is a 15 minutes serving pledge, just hurry up and decide so they can rush your order to the kitchen. There is also an all day breakfast menu if you don’t wish to splash out for a Lobster Thermidor or 12oz Ribeye Steak Frites.
Unfortunately, you can only find Oriel Grande Brasserie in London Heathrow Airport Terminal 3, Terminal 4 and soon to open in London Luton Airport.
You can find their menu here.
