About L’Oranger

L'Oranger restaurant in London is the kind of special place you feared they weren't making any more. It's a pretty, polished French restaurant serving the classics of French cuisine. These seasonal works of art come from the kitchen of Laurent Michel who has served in triple-starred Michelin establishments in France before gracing St James's with his savoir faire. The elegant dining room is lit by a glass-dome ceiling, filled with starched linen, fresh flowers and gleaming tableware and peopled with fleet uniformed waiters. Seasonally-changing Provencal dishes might include fillet of beef en croute with bone marrow and fourme d'Ambert cheese with veg cooked with rosemary barbajuans. Fine wines, superb cheeseboard, excellent service.
