Galvin at Windows to close

Mayfair establishment Galvin at Windows, which is located on the 28th floor of the Hilton on Park Lane, is to close after 18 years of business.

The Galvin brothers, who also run two Spitalfields-based sites, Galvin La Chapelle and Galvin Bistrot & Bar, made the announcement on Instagram.

The brothers said: “You might have noticed that London Hilton on Park Lane has been undergoing a multi-million-pound renovation over the last 12 months. And the 28th floor is next!

“Galvin at Windows will soon be closing its doors to allow for renovation work to begin, and the last service will be on 25th April.

“Thank you to everyone who has dined with us over the years – we have loved serving you! And huge thanks to the Galvin Brothers for 18 years of brilliant partnership – we have many great memories to cherish.”

They told their followers to watch out on the Hilton’s social media channels for updates on what would be replacing the restaurant in the hotel.


Run by brothers Jeff and Chris Galvin, Galvin at Windows gained a Michelin star in 2007 only a year after opening, maintaining the single star until losing it in the 2020 Michelin guide to the UK and Ireland.

In addition, it employed First Dates frontman Fred Sirieix as general manager, who left the restaurant in 2019 after working at it since its opening in 2006, and having previously held positions at Pierre Koffman’s La Tante Claire, Michel Roux Jr’s Le Gavroche and Sartoria on Savile Row.

Galvin Bistrot & Bar opened in Spitalfields in 2020 in October, during the height of the pandemic. It was 15 years after their first London venue, Galvin Bistrot de Luxe, opened its doors on Baker Street.
