The Brasserie at Harvey Nichols

Forget what you know about dining in a department store – the setting is pristine and the dishes great value

On the second floor of Harvey Nichols you'll find a stylish, modern and altogether delicious dining experience in the form of the Brasserie.

Everything is shiny. The floor is reflective black, the chairs are steel, the tables are shiny white. The glass for your cheeky little lunchtime viognier reflects the sunlight from the windows, which also bounces off the sparklingly clean cutlery.

The menu is European in flavour with the odd Asian twist. Start with tiger prawns or sashimi tuna, black pudding or soup, then a fine selection of mains includes sea bream, steak, duck, salads. Select some delicious sides and you're looking at £25-£30 for a great two-course meal.

Bento boxes, sharing platters or just a cocktail at the bar are also on offer here, in a relaxed but tasteful setting, which you can enjoy long after the store itself has closed for business.

Look out for special offers – occasionally you’ll find three courses and a cocktail for just £20.

If you're looking for a bit of affordable luxury, Harvey Nichols is the place to be - especially if you manage to time it with one of their special offer menus. Three courses and a cocktail for £22? Count me in!

A friend and I recently went to take full advantage of the offer - plus a bottle of wine, of course - and it was an excellent experience throughout. A really warm welcome, efficient service, and delicious food served beautifully. We enjoyed simple mozzarella and tomato salads to start, with chicken and boulangèrepotatoes for main, and then a really decadent chocolate ganache with cherry sorbet for dessert. 

The a la carte menu obviously provides many more options but the special menus are very much worth seeking out.
