The Sofitel at Heathrow Terminal 5 boasts more decent eating than many airport hotels. As an alternative to the fine French goings-on in La Belle Époque, Vivre offers informal dining in an open-plan room of colourful contemporary design. The kitchen team are on view at their wokking and pizza-throwing, and service puts everyone at their ease. The large menu changes seasonally, but is built around a core of stalwarts. Among notable offerings are crab millefeuille served on a hot slate with radish and cucumber, pinkly moist lamb cutlets with matching spring roll, aubergine purée and couscous, and classic lemon meringue pie with vibrant raspberry sorbet.
