Furthermore, the table boast a fine collection of Hermes china, puiforcat silverware and Saint Louix crystal, all exclusively for this stunning table.
Seating up to 10 guests per table, The Salon Prive is another luxury dining area in the restaurant, however unlike The Table Lumiere, it is softer and warmer in ambience, yet still contains the same high-end elegance. With dark green lacquer walls, studded with thousands of green silk buttons, this gives a cosy and warm feel to this private alcove. The natural greens and browns of the colour scheme aim to bring the nature of Hyde Park opposite into the restaurant, reminding the guests of their unique location and wonderful city.
The third of the dining areas, Salon Park Lane, offers breathtaking views over Hyde Park through its traditional bay windows. With high ceilings, natural colour scheme and bursting with natural light, this room is perfect for a stylish meal surrounded by pure elegant design. Salon Park Lane is separated from the main restaurant by large Oak-framed french windows, creating exclusivity, privacy and the feel of being on a warm, garden patio.
