L'Ortolan

L'Ortolan is Reading's only Michelin starred restaurant offering high-end, modern French cuisine.

A bit about us

Celebrating its fifth decade of service and over 18 years of retaining a Michelin star, L’Ortolan continues to be a beacon of Berkshire’s fine dining restaurant scene offering a unique, luxury, timeless quality in its style and setting and impeccable attention to detail in its dishes and service.

Reading’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, L’Ortolan has enjoyed a prestigious lineage of decorated, award-winning chefs since opening in the late Seventies. From respective two Michelin star holders Nico Ladenis and John Burton Race in the late Eighties to Alan Murchinson’s 14-year tenure, Head Chef Tom Clarke continues with the same torch and a passion for flavour, French classical technique and a dedication to the ingredients from the Great British larder, having held the role of Head Chef since 2015.
