A family run collection of French restaurantsGalvin Restaurants is a family run collection of French restaurants founded in 2005 by Michelin-starred chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin. Each of their restaurants is unique, but they all share a common theme; the desire to offer high quality cuisine, served in luxurious surroundings by warm, hospitable and professional front of house. The Galvin USP is 'Family' and the presence of Chris and Jeff in their own restaurants. The brothers aim to ensure warmth of welcome and top service alongside exceptional food. Since the opening of La Chapelle and Café a Vin (now Galvin HOP), Galvin Restaurants' serve in excess of 25,000 guests per month. With over 50 years' experience between them, the majority of which has been in London, Chris and Jeff Galvin were delighted that three Galvin establishments featured in the top 100 in the recent Restaurant Magazine Top 100 National Restaurants Awards.
Chris and Jeff are well known for their culinary expertise and respect of seasonal ingredients as well as operating restaurants at the highest level. In 2010 Chris and Jeff received the prestigious Caterer & Hotelkeeper "Catey" award for Independent Restaurateurs of the Year. In 2012 Caterer & Hotelkeeper listed Chris and Jeff Galvin in the Top 100 Most Powerful People in Hospitality and ranking number seven in the "Chefs" category.
