Specialising in classic French cuisine, Elena’s L’Etoile is a bustling Parisian-style bistro, offering private dining rooms perfect for a multitude of events. A long-standing favourite of film and television people - as the vast array of signed photographs along the testifies - Elena’s can accommodate events at breakfast, lunch or dinner, cocktail and canapé events, or book launches or private parties, with group sizes ranging from 6 to 140 people. Ideal for smaller events, Elena's also boasts 4 beautifully appointed private salons in classical French style. For larger groups, the whole venue is available for exclusive takeovers, subject to availability.
A semi-private salon located at the rear of the main restaurant, The Glass Room is ideal for parties who still want to feel a part of the "buzz" of Elena's. The salon allows guests to view the restaurant through its glass wall partition.
Located on the 1st floor, the Oscar Salon (35 seated, 50 standing) opened in 1998 and takes its name for the first event held within it: a celebration for Britain’s 1998 Oscar winners. The room features beautiful French windows overlooking the vibrant buzz of Charlotte Street.
Elena’s Salon (20 seated, 25 standing) is set on the 2nd floor, and is often likened to eating in a personal French chateau dining salon. This beautiful space room features paintings by the late Glynn Boyd Hart.
Once a cigar salon, The Private Salon (10 seated) is one of the most intimate spaces, as well as the most characterful. This 3rd-floor space still houses an antique wooden humidor cupboard, which features dozens of locked drawers, full of cigars belonging to some of Elena’s most famous patrons.
Complemented by Victorian era photographs by Charlotte Cory, The Victorian Salon (16 seated, 20 standing) is an elegant dining space. This 3rd-floor room has original polished wooden floors and attractive antique accessories.
Select a menu of classic French cuisine for your party prior to your visit, with a choice of 4 menus offered in each dining room. Menu prices range from £27.95-£35.95 (coffee included) and a room hire fee of £55 applies from Monday to Saturday.
