This week I'm sharing another restaurant review, and this time it's another Michelin Starred one: La Chapelle. We managed to book ourselves onto Bookatable's 3 courses & a glass of brut for £29 deal. The offer is available until 31 July so if any of you fancy trying a Michelin Starred place for a reasonable price I would definitely check out these offers.
It must seem as though we are always going through bookatable, but that's because they do such amazing offers, which allows us to try so many different restaurants without breaking the bank. Of course these kind of night outs are only an occasional thing as doing this every night would probably defeat the purpose of going for offers. Anyway, enough of that and onto the review!
As always, the first thing I look out for is the decor, and my goodness is this place gorgeous! I wish I had the chance to take a decent picture of the whole place, because it was so lovely! I'm not too sure what the building was before, but it is a Grade II listed building so it has the high ceilings, medieval-styled chandeliers and just beautiful architecture.

You know a restaurant is incredible if it has been awarded a Michelin star, but it is even more so when it is awarded just one year after opening! So it was safe to say that expectations were pretty high. I ordered the Foie Gras to start as although I have had pate before, I wanted to try this, plus I liked the sound of the lemon croutons, and let me just say those croutons were amazing. As the foie gras was savoury, the mixture of flavour between the sweet and the savoury was interesting one. I did enjoy the starter but I thought there was too much of it. However, that might be because I had had quite a lot of bread before the starter arrived. Although can I just mention that La Chapelle do the best bread!

Finally dessert. The fusion of flavours were incredible! The only con I have for this dessert is that there wasn't enough pistachio cake, but that's only because it was so delicious. I was a bit dubious about the purple pear as I had never had it before, but it tasted so good as well.
I just wanted to share this last picture with you all because I thought it was such a beautiful tea light cover. It's such a lovely thing to have on your table as the detailing looks so amazing! If anyone knows where you can find these, do let me know:p
Overall I really enjoyed this dining experience. The service was fantastic, as they were very attentive and the food came at a perfect pace. This is definitely somewhere different to go to, and is a lovely treat to yourself whilst at the same time enjoying some incredible flavours.

I hope you all enjoyed this review. London is full of these amazing places to visit and eat, so if you are visiting, I would definitely recommend trying out new places like this and make the most of these kind of offers :) Have you tried any Michelin starred restaurants before? Is it something you would consider trying?
