Unlike many Michelin star restaurants in London Gauthier is not afraid of creating dishes with bold flavours that pack a punch. We were there for a 7 course x-mas eve dinner and apart from the cheese dish all dishes were sublime.
Gauthier rose to fame in Roussillion where he gained a Michelin star. After a few years he decided to set up his own restaurant which has gained a loyal following among fine diners (while Roussillion has had to close their doors permanently).
During our visit at Gauthier, we particularly enjoyed the excellent lobster broth with langoustine tortellini, foie gras with chestnut and celeriac puree, veal with morel and the divine black truffle risotto.
The flavour combinations were complex and worked on many levels. Compliments to the chef.
Gauthier is a hidden gem in the heart of Soho that deserves a second star in my book.
Overall rating of Gauthier: 8.5/10
