Hearty, seasonal French cooking from a modern master
Koffmann's is the highly anticipated next step from legendary French chef Pierre Koffmann, whose name has for 35 years been synonymous with some of the finest French food in the country.
Assured, attentive service from manager Eric Garnier and his team creates an atmosphere of convivial bonhomie. The restaurant attracts both local customers who may visit several times a week and culinary pilgrims visiting one of the grand masters of cooking.
The menu offers hearty, robust, seasonal food, influenced by Pierre’s Gascon heritage, with a good value Menu du Jour which changes daily. Some dishes are designed to highlight the theatre of carving and confident performance “à la table”.
Many of Koffmann’s signature favourites also feature, such as scallops with squid ink, braised pig’s trotter with morels, and pistachio soufflé with pistachio ice cream.
The feel of Koffmann’s is simple, elegant and understated, yet reflective of the chef’s French style and the chic Knightsbridge location. Earthy colours, on leather chairs and banquettes, complement off-white geometrically textured wall coverings. A series of food-themed photographs by Jean Cazals line the walls, and the kitchen is open to view for great visual theatre.
