The Americano is the hotel's outstanding French-themed bar and restaurant located adjacent to the lobby. Entering from the street you come straight into the bar area which has seats along the bar itself and then low, relaxing seating to the other side, perfect for pre-lunch/dinner drinks or a coffee. The bright, light and airy main room is to the back and features black leather banquettes and marble-topped tables as has a real buzz all day long. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as brunch at the weekend (sometimes with live jazz, which is an excellent time to go if you can get a table). The choice at breakfast is between patisseries, smoothies and tea and coffee to begin with followed by cereal or oatmeal, pancakes and various styles of egg including the classic eggs benedict (delicious) or the more exotic huevos a la Mexicana. The lunch menu features appetisers such classic salads, chicken paillard and charcuterie while mains include a mushroom risotto, moules frites, the burger and the quesadilla. Dinner brings other mouth-watering fare like tartine de crabe, burrata or foie gras torchon to start and Chilean seabass, fava bean agnolotti or lamb saddle for main. During the summer months, guests can head outside onto the patio for some al fresco dining amongst the greenery of the terrace. Service here is as good as the food is enjoyable, although if you can't make it for a full meal then at least try to pop in for a snack from the all day menu or grab something before you head out in the morning from the on the go menu. Another alternative, if you don't fancy leaving your room, is the bento box. There are five varieties for breakfast and five for during the day and are a good option if you want to kill a little hunger.
Bar Americano, located downstairs from the restaurant, is a slightly space-age hang out with a magnificent white bar and concrete floors and walls, where both guests and locals come to dance the night away and enjoy one (or more) of the house cocktails.
The other eatery, The Grill at La Piscine, is located next to the pool on the hotel's rooftop. Opened for the first time on 1st May 2012, the open kitchen will be open all year round serving both food and drinks right by the water. The Mediterranean menu features a selection of dips and small bites to nibble at while appetisers include Greek salad and grilled octopus. Mains comprise fish and meat from the grill such as jumbo prawn brochette or onglet steak. On the drinks side, guests can enjoy a cocktail, a selection of mezcals, a couple of Greek beers or a glass of French wine or champagne. Once the place gets going, it is sure to be a huge Chelsea hit.
