La Belle Époque

Sofitel London Heathrow, Terminal 5, Wentworth Drive, London Heathrow Airport, HOUNSLOW, TW6 2GD

3 rosettes

Reached by a covered walkway from Terminal 5, the Sofitel hotel group has created something so special at this Heathrow property that it is a destination in its own right. The building is a remarkable piece of modernist styling and it seems fitting that the newest Heathrow terminal should boast a cutting-edge venue such as La Belle Époque. The contemporary dishes have an Anglo-French influence but the kitchen isn't afraid to add Asian twists, as when a moist, perfectly seasoned piece of Irish trout is poached with tamarind, pearl barley and miso broth for an arresting first course. Sticking with the Asian theme, a main course Barbary duck breast is marinated in honey and ginger and roasted to pink perfection alongside a confit leg of the same bird and an earthy accompaniment of potato Sarladaise, root vegetable puree and a rich duck liver jus with plenty of backbone. There is a lot going on here, yet the kitchen keeps its eye firmly on the ball. A vibrant dessert of Gariguette strawberry terrine semifreddo is teamed with crunchy granola, silky smooth tonka bean custard and fennel pollen. Excellent home-made breads and an extensive, carefully constructed wine list offering plenty by the glass complete the package.
