Located in the heart of Maida Vale in Little Venice, Raoul’s was established in December 1985 through the drive and determination of a self-proclaimed “bored housewife” Geraldine Leventis. Geraldine was used to entertaining large numbers of guests over the years, one of whom was the painter Francis Bacon, and it was he who pressed her into opening her own restaurant.
Over the past 20 years Raoul’s Café has successfully combined a trendy and stylish setting with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Its popularity and reputation has steadily grown over the years and the Café has seen a regular and interesting mix of clientele of all ages. This is also a good place for celebrity spotting, especially during summer time, seated under the sun enjoying our delicious drinks on the terrace.
The Café offers a great Mediterranean menu, starting with Breakfast, Continental & English, followed by a Lunch menu from 11.00 am with the daily specials. You will find such dishes as Full English Breakfast with Cumberland sausages & the golden yellow Italian eggs that are a speciality, slow cooked British lamb shank, Caesar salad & organic salmon burger.
The dinner selection is served from 6.00 pm and offers a choice of dishes from around the Mediterranean Sea, such as wild sea bass, grilled halloumi cheese & aubergine salad and Italian hand made pastas.
Bookings accepted from 7pm.
