More about Kettner's
One of the oldest restaurants in Theatreland, Kettner’s spans 3 floors, presenting contemporary modern European brasserie-style cuisine, as well as a champagne bar and 7 private dining rooms.
Kettner’s in London was founded in 1867 by Auguste Kettner, a former chef to Napoleon III. Within 4 Listed Georgian houses, the restaurant is just behind the stage doors and has a secret passageway running to the Palace Theatre. Beautifully preserved and enhanced, Kettner’s boasts elegant period features throughout. With delicate white furniture, marble touches and glowing candelabras, Kettner’s restaurant exudes a homely Parisian feel in the heart of London.
Serving modern European dishes throughout the day and a range of menus to suit all occasions, Kettner's Head Chef Yosef Edri has taken inspiration from Auguste Kettner’s ‘Book of the Table’: a comprehensive cookery manual published in 1877. Enjoy Kettner's signature dish of savoury ‘tart of the day’, as well as comforting beef bourguignon, and hand-crafted desserts. Kettner's afternoon tea stands are also piled high with their widely-renowned sweet treats and sandwiches.
Full of character, Kettner’s restaurant in Soho was a favourite of Edward VII, Lillie Langtry and Oscar Wilde. Leicester Square Tube Station is just a 5-minute walk away.
