Coda Eric Chavot

Make an occasion of it by booking into , the Royal Albert Hall’s fine dining restaurant and bar. Michelin star-awarded chef Eric Chavot has created a menu of seasonal, French-inspired dishes to delight RAH ticketholders, who now make a ritual of heading there for an early supper before the evening’s entertainment. You can even order dessert and drinks which will be prepared in time for the first interval, so there’s no rush. With beautiful views of Kensington Gardens, the restaurant is located on the Rausing Circle and decked out with accents of lilac and grey, making it an elegant spot for a glass of pre-show champagne – but it’s worth taking the time to dine there. The prix fixe menu is extremely reasonable considering the quality of the cuisine. Highlights include the refreshingly tart sea bream ceviche to start and a delicately seared piece of Brill atop squid ink linguine in a mustard velouté. 2 courses for £37.
